Both events have created a stir on message boards, with many people commenting that cyclists are rude road hogs that have no care for poor drivers. Cyclists shoot back that they're often run off the road by drivers who have no respect for those on two wheels. The old battle between drivers and riders is reignited.
So if you don't want to mix it up with drivers head to the trail. I checked up on four trail systems in the Puget Sound region by biking from my home in north Everett to Gas Works Park. I started on the Interurban Trail, caught the North Creek Trail at McCollum Park, which took me to the Sammamish River Trail near Cascadia College in Bothell. After the Sammamish River morphs into the Burke Gilman near Kenmore I took that into Seattle with a small detour near Lake Forest Park. Overall I spent more than 85 percent of my ride on trails and if it hadn't of been for the detour it would have been closer to 97 percent. It was a good ride and I didn't tangle with a single driver.
