Cycling as a sport is becoming more popular in Greensboro and the city has worked hard to provide places to ride, from greenways and trails to bike lanes on city streets. Weekends in the summer bring out lots of cyclists. At least twenty people were riding as a group down Elm Street on Saturday. They rode together, looking out for each other. They followed the rules of the road and even used hand signals. One slight indulgence was circling around the Nathanael Green statue on McGee street... more than once.
Remember, cyclists have as much right to be on the road as cars, and drivers need to be extra careful and patient. After Sunday evening's pelting rain, it is hard to believe that Saturday morning was this bright and sunny and conducive to being on a bicycle. Finally, please have a look at just how green Greensboro is this time of year. The main street downtown is lined with trees and dotted with hanging baskets.
Happy Monday, dear readers. It is a new week!
