I just moved to SoCal after living in Vegas for 20 years of my life. So far, I've become quite satisfied with my morning commutes by bike and I want to carry on with it when I move back.
Well, SoCal isn't all that it's cracked up to be, so my girlfriend and I will be moving back in January.
I know I've seen a few random sidewalk riding fools, but I want to know if there are any real commuters. I only rode MTN bikes when I lived there, so I don't have any experience with the drivers and whatnot. I can only assume that it's the type of town full of morons who don't know that bikes belong on the road.
I know it's a long-shot due to the insanely hot summers and lack of Vegas-related threads in this forum, but I figured I'd try any way. I'm not too concerned with the heat thing because I've driven the Red Rock loop many times and I always see bikers on there. If they can brave the heat for 13 miles, I think I can handle an early-morning commute.
I'm sure that different parts of town will respond to a biker on the road differently, so if anybody has any experience in Summerlin or Cheyenne & 215 area (those are the only places we are looking at moving to right now) that would be better.
Thanks for any help that you guys can give.
