Just curious to see if there are any cyclist here. I know we had a small TDF discussion while the race was going on but that was it. There are a few of us here at TSS that are enthusiast so I wanted to put the feelers out.
If you are doing it recreationally, it has some nice trails (a tad crowded and filled with yahoos on the weekends). If you are using a bike as a means of commuting on the streets to get to and from work ... its dangerous. And the bike trails don't actually follow routes most people would use for commuting unless you want to bike an extra hour.
And they have bike lanes but they have 0 enforcement so 1 person cars just drive in the lane for car pooling, taxis, buses and bikes routinely.
Did a lot at one time, not so much anymore. Would travel around the midwest for some better tours (assault on Mt. Mitchell was one of my favorites - North Carolina) back when I was in much better shape. Mostly road/distance riding.
Have become more worried as the years go by with more distracted drivers due to cell phones, texting, etc. Had a few close calls with folks not paying attention and bumping me or cutting me off, without them even looking up from their phone. Cities cutting expenses are leaving many of the roads in bad shape as well. Now my Bianchi XL and I mostly share short to intermediate rides during quiet periods (weekend mornings).
