Run down the list. You’ll find there are three practical options: intercity buses, subways, and trains.
For bikers, the most useful transportation is the intercity bus. Let’s explore!
In a smaller city? Look under you. You’re holding the fastest way across town. Hop on your bike. You’ll outpace vehicle traffic.
Most sidewalks have commuter bike lanes. If swarms of pedestrians block your path, dip into a city block and take the city back roads. Just slow down at the intersections.
Better yet, if your city has a river, you’ll often find a bike path on its banks. This is the bike expressway. Flowing under bridges, you’ll skip all the intersections and traffic lights.
