One thing that i forgot to mention is that i mostly ride a 20" BMX or a BMX cruiser(24") So I cannot cycle very fast. Another thing is that I would be afraid to use pepper spray as that could get me shot. Fear is real as it is a very bad area and yet I love watching the races and doing a few laps on the track after the races are over.

I have read several threads on this in the commuter forum and yet I am still undecided on what to do. I can't afford to rent a car and have no one to give me a ride. There is no public transportation going there.
Being car free for only two years now,I find that I still have a lot to learn.
