I went on vacation last week to the rural areas of North Florida. I took my bike for several rides in the country. About 98% of my usual cycling is in the city or urban core so I was a little freaked out by the wide open spaces and lack of humanity. On one ride I was only overtaken by 10 cars within 20 miles. After reading several posts over the years on BF regarding harassment of riders in the country I was a little apprehensive about being so isolated. On the last day I was out a car pulled by me and the passenger started pointing off to the right of the road. I couldnít understand what he was saying so I thought I was getting the standard ďget off the roadĒ gesture. It was starting to rain and I realized the guy was trying to tell me there was some shelter up ahead. That was unexpectedly nice.
