However, my neighborhood doesn’t have great sidewalks and isn’t well connected to the rest of town. In fact, sometimes I drive across town in order to use trails over on the west side. I own a car but owning and maintaining a car isn’t necessary, affordable, or desirable for everybody. Plenty of undergrads can’t afford a car – I couldn’t. Missionaries don’t need cars – I didn’t. Runners, cyclists, and hikers might prefer to get exercise outdoors – I do. Moms might prefer their kids walk to and from school instead of driving them each morning and afternoon. Dads taking kids to the park might prefer to walk and push a stroller. Aging neighbors may not want to drive across town to the grocery store. That’s why we need safe options in every neighborhood, connecting every neighborhood. It’s not a nice-to-have, it’s not just recreation, it’s how we get from point A to point B without endangering lives.” 2 replies on “Today is not the day for skinny-tire road bikes. Pull that MTB out and ride slowly, walk, or take public transit instead!” Hey Austin. I’ve found the best tires for snow are cyclocross, or any narrow, aggressively treaded tire. They slice through even deep snow with little resistance but still get excellent traction. Great point! Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
