We made a weekend trip up to Savannah this weekend, to get away from things after my trip to New York. We went to Savannah a few years ago and remember that it was very walkable, but I looked at from a bike point of view on this trip. Needless to say I was very impressed.
The best thing for cyclists in Savannah is SCAD. SCAD provides the area with hundreds of young cyclists that use bikes for all of their typical trips around town. SCAD provides bike racks at all of their campus buildings and the city itself provides many bike racks on street and within the streetscape. The large amount of college cyclists, along with everyday commuters, creates the culture that makes cars constantly conscious of bikes being in their environment and makes them drive just a little bit more cautious. Cars have to be aware of people walking at every intersection, bikes riding all around them, horse drawn carriages being in front of them, and tour trolleys rolling around town. Slow and controlled is the only way that they can successfully drive through Savannah without conflicts.
