All kidding aside, I'm not comfortable riding the roads in Richmond. The driving habits of our city-mates are not conducive to sharing the road with folks on 2 wheels (even when there is a motor attached). I stick to mountain biking in the parks.
Meh, I rode a scooter and a motorcycle for a few years and I bike to and from work daily now. It's really not that bad and really teaches you to be aware of your surroundings and how to drive defensively.
I've had a lot more close calls in my old Jeeps than I ever did on 2 wheels.
Only time I've ever been close to being hurt on 2 wheels was on Riverside drive because some inconsiderate jackass trimmed a bunch of monkey grass and threw it in the road around a turn right after it rained. I fishtailed HARD, no idea how I recovered it, but I had to pull over to collect myself after I did. Girl behind me pulled over to check on me, she looked like she'd had a heart attack lol.
