Hello from Idaho, land of mountains, deserts, and great potatoes. Long time lurker, newbie poster.
I live in the city of Boise, in the southwest part of the state. Iíve relied on a bicycle as my primary means of transportation for over fifty years, in California, Minnesota, Alaska, and Idaho. Did some road racing in the past, but Iím primarily a utility cyclist now.
Someday Iíd like to see what itís like to ride in Amsterdam or Copenhagen, but here in the car-centric U.S. I have found that traveling on the roadway in accordance with the vehicular rules of the road, and respecting othersí rights to do likewise, is the safest and most efficient way for me to get where Iím going. I hope I live to see the day when Americaís pathological infatuation with the automobile is a thing of the past.
