Most of the Atlanta metro is already a dangerous environment for cyclists.

I think cycling about anywhere in metro Atlanta outside of designated bike trails in parks is suicidal. The only time cycling on a major road might work is very early on a Sunday morning at the crack of dawn.

From what I have seen over the years, speed bumps and more police presence in the area are the only things that curb most speeders in most residential areas.

I never realized how spoiled I was growing up... at least for recreational cycling only.

I grew up in large subdivision where you could bike 15 miles with repeating only a few major streets going each way. I use to bike everyday.

One thing I really wish could do to change zoning and reintegrate older neighborhoods is make the back of different neighborhoods connect for walking and biking, even if not cars.

It would greatly expand local recreational opportunities. I realized in my corner of Lilburn... it would half my walk/bike to the nearest park if there was a path from the back of my neighborhood to the back of the next.
