  1. We need more cycling trams like Europe to make this more appealing and cosmopolitan. If that were to happen, this could really fly. But you have no clue how many times I’ve come THIS close to hitting a cyclist. It’s not their fault or mine. It’s because our local and federal government doesn’t seem to think it necessary to incorporate a safe area into our roads for them to cycle. It would save a ton on gas not to mention making our air more breathable. Those with allergies and asthma would thank us.

    • And the environment could stand a little break and that is for sure. I know at this time cycling is not as safe as it could be. But we as the cyclist must do all we can to make ourselves visible and follow the road laws to the best of our ability. This will help out until more is done about the roadways including cyclist in their plans during construction. A lot of cities are adding paths into their budgets.

  2. I am absolutely amazed at how some of the cities are changing these days in relation to biking. Even Edmonton, where I am now, has gotten on board with this and it wasn’t easy. I eagerly follow cycling on TV (Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, etc) and am thinking of getting a high-quality road bike myself, so I am actively examining the cycling possibilities around where I live. And things are definitely changing. Let’s hope this continues!

    By the way, I really like that video.

    • I know. It is a wonderful thing. The more they do the more a person will be inclined to bike more. I hope you find the bike for you. But before you buy anything click here and check out something. I am sure you will see you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg just to get a good riding bike. Your choice of course, just thought I’d share the information.

  3. I am noticing bicycle tracks near roads on next to sidewalks more and more but they always seem so short… and I … well that’s nice, but that’s a pretty short ride! BUT I have a question, and I’m not sure if you can answer it. How do you measure the proper bike side. I’m pretty tall and I enjoy riding, but I can never seem to get on a bike that allows me to extend my legs out all the way when peddling. I wondered if you could give me some insight about bicycle “sizes” and how to measure for the correct one… OR maybe write a post and send me the link. Thanks

    • That’s true in a lot of places that they have short runs on their paths. But it will get better as more attention is being given to the cycling world. As far as sizing your size bike have a look at this link by clicking HERE where you will see a sizing chart and if you need more help you can go to your local bike shop and they can assist you.

  4. Hello

    Biking or walking is my chosen form of transportation as I do not drive. Taking the bus can be more of a bother than anything. I like to use my bike for both pleasure and transportation. The city I live in has many bike lanes popping up all over so it’s great. This is a great article.

    • Thank you very much. That is how I got started riding bikes. I did not have a car and the bus routes where I live doesn’t get you where you want to go. So you might as well walk or ride a bike. Next thing I knew I was loving the ride. And I’m glad your city is one of the ones that are stepping up with the cyclist in mind.
