After moving to the west coast and to a town that is very bike friendly (Santa Cruz, CA), it was super easy to ride more than drive.
The weather is almost always favorable for cycling, bike lanes are aplenty, drivers are generally respectful of cyclist… It was a dream come true.
Once I start riding my bike 90% of the time it was like “Wow, this isn’t even a hassle, it’s WAY better than driving!”
Push your city/town/village to become more bike friendly and I guarantee people will naturally begin cycling more! 17 months ago
