Bicyclist Hero, Dobbin Road & Route 175, Columbia, Md.
While doing my Christmas shopping this year, I was surprised to see a lot of bicyclists traveling around the suburbs of greater Washington where I grew up. Not only are the roads wide and fast, but drivers aren't always nice to bicyclists. I was impressed by their fortitude and bravery. I bike in the city, but I certainly don't have the cojones to do what they do.
