I grew up in Wyoming and Colorado, and we always had sidewalks. Even in my hometown, which is fairly low-rent (Laramie) we had tons of sidewalks to ride on, and the roads were nice and wide.
What gives? Here in the south, our roads are super narrow, curvy, and feel just plain dangerous. The only sidewalks are in city centers, which 'round here don't exist unless you go to Atlanta, Alpharetta, etc.
How do you SE guys/gals ride on the roads??!
