I am posting here as suggested in the activation email I received when creating an account here.
My name is Christopher L. Simons, and I recently purchased my first road bike. I am looking forward to learning more about bicycle mechanics and gaining experience and stamina, and would like to start biking to work (at least in the warm months, initially).
How is the biking there? I'm mostly riding in urban-suburban landscapes here. There are bike lanes in much of the downtown area, but in the outlying suburbs of the area there are less. I live in West Jordan, and it seems like people here are mostly impatient having cyclists in the roads. I was honked at twice on the way to work today, even though I was obeying the law and riding with traffic in the rightmost-lane. I find this kind of surprising as there seem to be a fair amount of cyclists here!
