Re: What is your comfortable Cruising speed ?
If I tried to go 25-30 MPH where I live I'd be in the hospital or morgue in a few days max. People here don't even know bicycles exist or they just don't care. They hit me, I go to the hospital or grave and they get a citation. Why should they care? I do about 12-14 MPH and still have close calls constantly.
I've learned to avoid main streets unless there's no other way, back streets are FAR safer. I still get hosed but not near as often. Unfortunately I can't get everywhere on back streets, most places I go require some riding on main streets.
