after spending a weekend in Denver, I saw bikes everywhere ... on the sidewalk, in the road, on the paths, seems it didn't matter.... though the most beautiful thing I saw was a fixie rider, on the street, come up on a red light, go up onto the sidewalk, around the cars stopped for the light and down into the intersection timing the green light perfectly and rode along like it was nothing. Didn't break cadence or anything. I drooled.
cars alone aren't enough. you now have to be aware of other cyclists, which is kinda ironic and sad, but true. Austin rocks, though, and don't let this get you down...
(yay for drunk posts, there should be more)
