That's exactly what I did last weekend. Just rode around my neighborhood, for the sheer joy of riding.
First, I headed out towards the Chattahoochee.
MARTA bus, to get to work. I would not say that riding on Dogwood was unpleasant, but with many cars driving above the legal speed limit of 35 MPH, it was not unpleasant. But, as usual, I stuck to my guns and rode sensibly and safely.
Picture below is presented to show how narrow the lanes are. There is no choice except to take the lane.
It is very difficult to walk this road. There is no shoulder and one has to walk on tall grass. I have walked this road once, so far and I wouldn't say it was a lot of fun. City of Roswell, are you listening?
