A little over a year ago I moved to Colorado leaving my wife and home to work. Part of pursuing my career ended up including bike commuting for that year.
Now, for various reasons, I am back in Eastern Washington back with my wife and home...still dedicated to bike commuting.
Over the last couple of weeks, as I ride in this area, I can't help but compare urban commuting and cycling in general to Colorado. So much is different.
Even though traffic and drivers could be challenging in Colorado; here I feel as though drivers do not even care about sharing the road with an alternate and far older form of transportation. Even in the bike lane drivers pass well within three feet. It is challenging.
May is bike to work month and I plan on making the commute as much as possible. I also hope to build urban commuting awareness in this area over the next year.
