I've been riding a bicycle for transportation for about 9 years...
In that time I've noticed a considerable change in the people's attitude to cyclists who ride to work/grocery stores/entertainment. In 2005, it seemed like science fiction to believe you could survive without a car and just crazy to think you could get around year-round on a bicycle. At that time, you'd often get honked at, or worse... Even abuse at work wasn't that uncommon.
Fast Forward to 2014 and when I tell people I don't have a car, they seem genuinely interested... many of them have friends or relatives who ride extensively. Many of them have considered whether they could do it.
The downtown here is full of Saturday riders to the market or the pubs. The grocery stores usually have two or more bikes locked up. There are several bars whose clientele appears to be bike-only and many bars catering to cyclists. Springtime features a seemingly ever-increasing population heading off to work on their new bikes.
What about where you live? Have things changed much over the last decade?
