Quiet backroad with a twisted backstory

Here’s a tour of one of my favorite cycling roads, part of a hilly loop I often ride from home. Inningwood starts with a tough climb but it’s worth it for the scenery along with way.

Drivers: Can you give us 3 feet?

‘ve been buzzed, berated, beeped and barked at by passing motorists (and their dogs). Told to get the *%&@ up onto the sidewalk or the bike path. I don’t carry a tape measure with me when I ride, and yeah, I know everybody’s driving SUVs named after huge ships and mountains. But passing a 3-foot passing distance law – and actually enforcing it – definitely gets the point across: Share. The. Road. New York’s latest effort to follow the lead of 35 other states is mired in Albany politics, as usual. How many more years will it take to make this happen?
