I Love Riding in the City

NAME: Don Walker
LOCATION: Speedway, IN
OCCUPATION: NAHBS dude, bike shop owner, bicycle framebuilder, father

Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?
Indy is a bike friendly place, regardless what people think. The government has been building bike trails all over the place and converting many old rail lines to bike and walking trails. Downtown isn’t really that bad, if you don’t mind the constant lane closures and steam from the underground pipes.

What was your favorite city to ride in, and why?
I grew up in Sacramento and loved riding there. The scenery was always good and within a few miles, you could be in some hilly areas.

Why do you love riding in the city?
I like the speed. I am constantly amazed at how fast things move around me, whether it be cars or the scenery (buildings and people) and having to jump to make it through a light before it turns red.

Poetry anyone?
Heres a lame ass haiku for the occasion.... not happy with the final line tho...

Cab! Pothole! Lookout!
I fear not these things, riding
Bike handles the best
