What will a future of self-driving cars mean for cyclists?

There are a huge implications of driverless cars that we, as a society, haven’t really started to fathom. These may lead us places we don’t want to go, especially if we see bikes as an integral part of liveable, healthy, and vibrant cities.
Consider this: Autonomous cars may eliminate the reasons many people choose to commute by bike, from high parking rates to long commute times.
Take parking in Calgary as an example. Nearly half of downtown workers take transit, and a smaller but not insignificant number ride bikes, partly because it is so difficult and expensive to find park a car downtown.
