So after a few weeks here, I've noticed that there's a lot of complaints about how drivers treat bicyclists on the road... yet I've never had it happen to be in the 2 weeks I've commuted so far. Maybe I haven't been riding long enough, but in Philly it seems most people are friendly enough about bikers or just speed away from you.
Is it in specific parts of the country that have these multitudes of *******s? Or is it the type of bike you're riding/what you're wearing that gets you that negative attention?
I'm just trying to figure out the distribution of anti-bicycle attitudes... personally from what I've seen from commuting so far is that 99% of the people here are either friendly or neutral towards bicycle.
