Living in the Hawthorne area for over 15 years it has been a pleasure to see cycling grow even though I am not a cyclist myself. This improves the livability of the area. My main frustration is trying to 'mindread' cyclists and if they are or are not going to follow the rules of the road. I want to include them on the road, but believe that when they do go thru stop lights, ride on the sidewalks, dont have helmets, dont yeild, dont have adequate lighting for night time riding ...it just makes it very very difficult. I also have experience 'cycling snobs' who assume that because I am driving that I am not as 'socially conscious' as they are... just not true.
