Downtown Bike fest

I don't know how many of you happened to be downtown last week but I was in the evening on both Wednesday and Friday and there were bikes locked up everywhere! Man, I wish I had a camera on me because it was a glorious sight let me tell you what! Honestly, I have lived in this town for 3.5 years and have never seen anything like this. It was rad. That's all I got. I just wanted to make mention of it because there are still a lot of people out there that say that people in this town don't ride their bikes if you can believe it.
The new Calhoun Street doesn't have any bike racks on it and the bikes were everywhere! I don't know if it was some kind of official event, but it sure as heck was an event! Great to see though. Keep it up Ya'll.

I was downtown this afternoon and on the greenway and could not believe the amount of riders I saw. I am an everyday commuter and I have never seen so many people on bikes. The only problem is many do not know the rules of the road. I had a kid riding against traffic on Maplecrest almost run into me.

Eric,
Thanks for reading.
I agree about people not obeying the law. It is a problem that seems to be getting worse rather than better. Be safe out there.
