Washington DC resident and filmographer Monica Gray asks fellow bicyclists what’s hard about biking in Washington DC during the 2010 DC Tweed ride. In many ways, the answers could have come from any city in North America:
“In rush hour – uh, angry and impatient drivers.”
“Being terrified of doors swinging open – dodging cars”
“Drivers are inattentive, and always in a hurry to get somewhere. If people slowed down a little bit more, I think it would be better for everybody.”
“They (drivers) say get onto the sidewalk, but it’s illegal for me to be on the sidewalk”
