Cycling Safety

Posted on September 26, 2014 by Courtney Barnes

Cycling is a beautiful and fun sport.  We have to figure out a better system for safety.  Our friends are getting hit (disabled and killed) by vehicles AND our friends are hitting (disabling and killing) pedestrians.  Cyclists are doctors, lawyers, engineers, entrepreneurs, artists, researchers, executives.  This is our problem to solve.  Please blog, email, FB, tweet, and talk about it.
