Today's photo features a person pedaling across the bridge in downtown Greensboro where South Edgeworth meets up with Freeman Mill Road, directly above Spring Garden Street. It is common to see cars and trucks passing above on this bridge; however, bicycles are not so common. Since the Greenway is also located near here, many cyclists- especially recreational riders- opt to ride the greenway. The young man above appeared to be a man on a mission. He had the energy of someone well accustomed to using pedal power to get from Point A to Point B.
If his determination inspires you to get out and bike this weekend, here is the city's link to their Greensboro Urban Area Bicycle Map. Over the past decade, Greensboro has gotten more bicycle friendly and motorists are becoming more accustomed to sharing the road. The Dutch have learned when drivers exit a car, they should open the door with their right hand. This forces the body to turn, increasing the likelihood of seeing a person riding past on a bike. Whether you are on a bike, in a car, or otherwise, we hope you get out and enjoy the weekend.
