I’ll second Paul’s comments – it was a great route. Today also happened to be the day of the (AABTS) Ann Arbor Bicycle Touring Society’s major invitational ride: One Helluva Ride. Many, many bicyclists, most very polite to overtaking traffic but some clearly challenging the Darwin theory. I thought it would be worthwhile to post the AABTS rules for riders:

“Cyclists are expected to obey all traffic laws. Like motorists, you can be ticketed if you fail to do so. Ride with the traffic and never more than two abreast. Move into single file when motorists or other cyclists approach from the rear. Signal all your intentions to motorists and the cyclists near you! No cell phones, headphones, or texting while riding. If you have to stop for a rest or an emergency, move yourself and your bike completely off the pavement…”

Of course every group has one or more individuals that believe they make their own rules …
