We know what you're thinking: "Does Indianapolis even have a biking community?" The answer is yes, which is why we're the self-proclaimed racing capital of the world. This city offers miles (and miles!) of two-wheeler-friendly trails, a burgeoning bike-to-work contingent, and even an internationally acclaimed bike- and pedestrian-only corridor that links pretty much every athletic, entertainment, and cultural venue worth visiting. But here are a few other questions that might occur to you as you trail those cyclists in your gas guzzler.
Why the hell does that biker keep looking at me?
Probably because you’re too damn close. In Indy, cars must give cyclists a minimum 3ft buffer. And if you drive around in a pickup truck with gigantic mirrors that stick out farther than the width of the lane, consider giving them more. Honestly, riders don’t call those things "street sweepers" for nothing.
