When the roads were closed because of the fires, he rode up there and took pictures of the hills on fire and they didn't stop him because he was on a mountain bike. He laughs at my electric bike, I don't think he knows about what some of the forum members here are doing with them. Next time he visits, I'll let him take a test ride around the block, show him some off road videos, and he will become the next grinning convert. Speaking of UC, the one near me had a mass ride that turned into a mess ride because of the cops. (? a bike friendly silver city?) I hear Davis,CA is also a cycle town. Anybody?

Here in the mountain states ( Utah, Colorado etc ), bikeways are popular. Separate a slow moving bicycle from fast moving car traffic, and whaddya know.. less bicyclists are getting killed.
With all the money California has, you'd think they could put some in.
I grew up near San Luis Obispo, CA, and spent time out in LA. It seems that only the smaller cities, some very liberal parts of northern California, and college areas care about bikeability out there.
I was never interested in biking out on So Cal.. ride your bike on the side walk through sprawl, dodging homeless people, gangsters, and aggresive drivers? nooooo thank you.
