A Bike Friendly City Is a Friendly City

Walking from the Convention Center to the Jupiter Hotel, I asked directions from a girl wearing a vintage bombshell dress chaining her 70's era step through Schwinn to a signpost. She was very friendly and helpful.

Later, while wandering the area around the hotel looking for food, I asked a couple riding town bikes about good restaurants. Turns out the guy was from Tulsa originally. They recommended a quirky Asian food restaurant near the hotel.

A stranger wandering 71st Street in Tulsa would not have those interactions.
