Bike to Work Day - Friday, May 15, 2009
Time to pump up the tires, strap on the helmet, and ride your bike to work!
If you are in San Diego, you have a great resource at RideLink.org.
If you are not a regular bike commuter, please have a look at their link to Bicycle Safety. Also, here is another really good site for bike safety, and How Not to Get Hit By Cars.
Most importantly, remember what you see when you drive your car, complete with blind spots, distractions, and morning aggravations, and then ride your bike accordingly. Be vigilant, make yourself visible, and don't hesitate to "own" your little section of the road.
Running a very close second behind practicing bike safety, ENJOY your ride. Enjoy breathing deeply and exercising your muscles. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the day.
