Atlanta Sucks

Although I guess it should be “Atlanta Metro Sucks” but the attitude is the same all over the metro area and the city as well. I’ve previously mentioned how much of a barrier the Chattahoochee can be when trying to move around the near northside metro and it’s always bugged me that Johnson Ferry east of the river is awesome, wide sidewalks and a bike lane but as soon as you cross the county line at the river there’s no cycling accommodations. Really sucks because the alternatives are far and steep. Saw this post in a city data thread and just had to sigh and shake my head. If it’s not petty racism limiting infrastructure and creating a mess of surface street routing it’s political infighting limiting the goodwill that can be created between different road uses. This place sucks.
