Despite all the talk about Atlanta being bad for bicycling due to traffic, road design, and lack of bicycle facilities, it occurs to me that the weather here is almost perfect for cycling. Lots of sunny days. Mild winters. Rarely ever any ice. Does Atlanta have an unnecessary stigma attached to it?
Even if Atlanta was considered bad for bicycling, couldn't it be a great candidate for a cycling mecca? If not, why not? If so, why?
