Living in Richmond is pretty good, it’s a small town, everyone knows me by sight (probably something like “that nice disabled guy”), but the bike paths are non-existent for me. I can’t ride a conventional bicycle.
My ride is about 3′ wide, and about 2′ off the ground. At the speeds that I ride at, I’m pretty much completely invisible. The roads that I’d prefer to ride on, because they’re outside town, don’t have many intersections, and are long, but have speed limits of 80 km/h.
I’m fast, but nowhere near that. I’ve approached the city councillor for the area, asked him for his help, and I’m not sure when, but I’ll be getting going at getting it done!
