I have been riding my bike more and more around the City and while I have no context as to how we rank, I have found it mostly easy to do. Bike lanes aren’t 100% contiguous, but most drivers I have encountered have been friendly. One of the biggest challenges are the stupid bikers. In fact, clients and I watched a bicyclist jump from sidewalk to street to crosswalk and nearly get hit by a car. Think, people!
