I feel bad for brits that we had to export our shit suburban car culture to England and forever fucked their public transit and attitude towards bicyclists. I think the UK is the only country in the Europe with an American style hatred for cyclists.
>>903983 I met this guy about 10km from my house as he crossed Canada http://www.thedailyobserver.ca/2015/07/30/man-and-dog-criss-cross-the-country Chinese motor inside a homemade trailer pulling a dog across Canada
As it so happens I just got back from riding pic related, got in two hours after work riding singletrack and gravel in the dark. Was fun, but I have to confess I'm a total wuss when it comes to rock drops and ruts at night.
While out today I passed through the valley where a pumpkin patch is located. On one side there was a giant truck with a sign saying to enter from other side of valley blockading the road because a bridge at the bottom is condemned and barricaded. Sure enough while riding down that road I encountered a woman in an SUV who must have gone into the ditch to get around the truck confident the sign and truck was a ruse. When I was exiting the valley there was a constant stream of cars kicking up a huge plume of dust.

>>902244 >NYC >Like pretty much everything else in this city, the answer is both yes and no. Pros: Lots of bike lanes, lots of cyclists. Cons: Streets are always in horrendous condition and motorists like to use the bike lanes as parking spaces. Drivers are insane but at least they know to watch out for cyclists.
Looking to get into street cycling. Former land whale, fat af. Down over 100 lbs in 18 months but stalled around 340 lbs. Walking, portioning etc. just not cutting it anymore. Used to love biking when i was younger so thought that might be a nice change of pace.
A few hangups I have when it comes to getting one: I'm still a big guy so I want something durable (leaning towards a mountain bike). I'm a tall guy 6'6" so I'm wondering if the 27" bikes you can get at Walmart/Target will be sufficient. Also... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
OP, there's no reason you can't ride a bike at 340 pounds, but realistically this means you'll need very strong wheels, and you'd likely benefit from starting out on a bike more like the one in your pic that uses the frame to support more of your body mass than a typical mountain bike or road bike.
Unfortunately the need for strong wheels means that Target/Walmart bikes aren't a good option (they're really not good options for anyone, as a previous anon mentions).
My suggestion is to look for a local dealer of Worksman cycles, they... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>904872 kek, this. Pedestrians also always have the right of way, does that mean they should walk across busy lanes of traffic? Fuck waiting at crosswalks for the evil white man sign to light up and give me permission to cross the street. I don't need permission!
