[Cyclelicious] New comment on Bicycling advocacy and public safety.

cafiend has left a new comment on your post "Bicycling advocacy and public safety":

On a visit to Baltimore, I apparently accidentally rode the Tour de Sketchy Neighborhoods. On the old beater fixed gear, with my typical shabby wardrobe, no one gave me a second glance.

You gain a lot of safety by not projecting a sh*thead attitude. Don't project a lot of fear or arrogance and don't ride flashy equipment. Look like you know where you're going, even if you don't.

Around hostile rednecks in a rural environment all bets are off. (Cue the banjo)
