Many people are wearing riding helmets for added protection during bike rides in our over populated city of Atlanta. We have few bike trials here, so many bikers have to ride their bikes on the street along with traffic. The worst times of the day to ride are around 8 to 9am and 4 to 6pm. The volume of traffic is at it’s peak during those times. From 7 to 8 pm are the times I usually ride my bike. for safer biking, consider riding at an local park if there’s one in your neighborhood.
