  Bicycle Orange Beach Alabama
By Yokota Fritz 
Orange Beach, Alabama is a Gulf Coast resort town on the Alabama / Florida border. I was watching this police video in which a drunk 11-year-old girl in her mom's Monte Carlo leads police on a 100 mph chase down Perdido Beach Boulevard. The chase ended like many high speed chases do, with the pursued losing control and flipping the car.

What was interesting to me, though, was the miles of pristine bike lanes along that seaside boulevard clearly visible in the night-time police video. While there was plenty of other traffic on the road, I didn't see any bikes but those freshly painted white stripes sure looked pretty.

Just to keep things on topic: Ken Kifer lived in Alabama. Maude here is a Bama blogging bicyclist. Most Alabama visitors to Cyclelicious come from Huntsville or Birmingham, but there are a handful of cyclists down in that southwest bump (is it big enough to be called a panhandle?) of Alabama. If you see this note let us know what it's like to cycle in the Heart of Dixie.

Update: I can't believe I didn't think of this! Masi Guy also hails from Alabama, as does the Bicycle Design Guy.
