Welcome, I live just east of you in Atlanta and we both live in bike unfriendly places. I guess we need to make people aware that we too have a right to the roads one ride at a time. Jeff

Welcome.

Sorry to hear that B'ham sounds just like Atlanta.

thanks for the warm welcome. i hate to hear that atlanta's still so bike-negative. i met a guy at a show at the star bar last year who had been clotheslined by this guy in a truck while riding
down euclid by what used to be a school past little 5 points. he was also talking about people throwing stuff at him and trying to run him and his friends off the road constantly.

Its good to see a jump of 10% in the number of cyclists in a city. Bicycle lanes dont make a cycle friendly city - its people out riding and being seen to be enjoying themselves. So keep riding and enjoy yourself.
