My brother just moved to Bloomington, Indiana to work at the university there, I got a call from him about how freaked out he's become of biking. He's been commuting for sometime in Portland, Oregon, and down at Stanford in California. I am not really sure I grasp everything that is going on, but the aggressiveness or alertness (or lack there of) of the drivers has him tripping out, scared, and depressed.
If anyone has any advice on commutinging in Bloomington, or how to handle the drivers there I'd really appreciate it, and I will make sure he gets the info.
PS. to those who do have info on this subject, I am sorry. It sounds really bad over there, I guess I have been blessed to have the fortune to live in two of the most biker friendly cities (Portland and Corvallis, Oregon). Much props, keep fighting the good fight.
