I agree.

I didn't see a single helmut in that video. Or a fat person. Maybe it's all that biking....

AND it's really flat, so you can go for miles and not get tired.

I vastly prefer these dedicated off-road trails, like Hilton Head has, to the bike lanes on roads. Does anyone know any other community that has bike TRAILS that are PRACTICAL for getting around to work, shopping and entertainment? I think it would be great to someday live somewhere where I could cut down on my car usage and do some of my errands by bike.
Portland and Minneapolis. Not many other cities their size can touch what they have.
