Ideal place to live as a cyclist...?
Suppose you could live anywhere you'd like in your city, but you found it lacking, and decided to invent a new part of town. What would it be like?
I'm going to be moving next month, but I haven't decided where. It might even just be to a different apartment in the same building. But I'm very indecisive, weighing my options, and realizing that I could (in theory) do better as a cyclist. To the west is water, and to the east is a freeway, midway a pretty steep hill; I don't like climbing until I'm warmed up. So all of my rides start on one of two roads. That's kind of boring after a couple years...
It's a weird question, but what are the qualities of a good apartment for a cyclist? What are the things that make you feel like you have it good, and what would rather change?
