So, I recently moved into Lansing and commute to work via bike on the RiverTrail. It's an amazing change of pace and a vast improvement in my quality of life. I was previously carpooling about 20 minutes into downtown Lansing or taking the entire length of the CATA #1
from Meridian Mall. Not only is my commute 20-30 minutes shorter, I'm burning calories and taking in the scenery, instead of staring at the back of someone's car. Oh, lest I not forget -- I'm saving cash, too.
So, I'm curious -- how many others on this site utilize a bicycle as a primary form of transportation? Where's your favorite place to bike? What are some of the major obstacles you face or perceive? How would you make Lansing more bike-friendly?
(Topic Disclaimer: although this isn't related to a specific development, I do think it's related to the social / cultural movement back to city centers and urbanity that we're seeing here in Lansing and elsewhere in the U.S.)
