Hey there everyone. I go to high school in Oakland (for those of you that know it, Bishop O'Dowd) and I live in the bay-o-vista area of San Leandro. The route to school is under two miles, and next year when I have no ride, I'd like to ride my bike. My road bike is going to be nice, not the best, but it may still attract attention. How do I ride through a marginal neighborhood? Is there a way to do it whilst still being safe? I know there's a chance anything can happen, but my parents are not too fond of the idea.
