    I think much of what makes a place bike friendly is a person's feeling towards the environment.

    For instance:
    - Distance travelled
    - Local drivers

    I buzz mine (#2), but I still get helmet creases in my hair. So I wear a cycling cap under the helmet. Works wonders because it prevents the creases, and also protects from the sun.

    I have not really had someone slow down and yell at me. I did have a guy yell at me to get on the sidewalk as he went by me at 40mph. Nobody has hung around to yell at me for anything....yet.

    I have noticed a few things when I drive a vehicle. First off is distance. People think distance is a ton of time being saved. What they don't realize is that at 60mph, a football field is only a...

    If you do want to carry a spare pair, minimalist shoes are nice (more of the running style). They typically will lay quite flat in a pack.

    The almighty fly by like Maverick in Top Gun. Except it is a big car instead of an F-14 Tomcat, and me on a bike instead of a tower.

    Steel is nice for comfort, but some don't like having to check for rust spots and use touch up paint.

    Aluminum is more worry free, lighter, but has a more harsh ride. In the end it is really up...

    That is why I am so afraid of those bikes. Being in Texas, we have a ton of long flats. Even my Trek Transport cargo bike is set up for a more aero position than upright. If I had nothing but...

    I've been eying the Trek CrossRip Elite lately. Fender and rack ready, comes with 32c's as well. Just not a fan of the Sora shifters.

    I have also heard of some stores offering discounts if you use a bike as transportation. I suppose the thought behind it is to not only help the environment, but also cut down on taken parking spots.

    A friend of mine did this with his GSX-R600. Forgot he had the disc lock on, BAM...instant carnage. Needed new disc, caliper, and front forks.
