Bike safety has become more and more of a thing lately. Don’t you think? Unfortunately, in our neck of the woods, there’s been one too many stories of bicyclists hit by vehicles. I know we’re not alone in this. And I do feel guilty about not doing more to promote bike safety. (I’m not trying to make you feel guilty. I’m just sharing my feelings.) I stumbled upon this article about how to create bike ways in your neighborhood and decided to join the bigger movement at People for Bikes. This organization exists to help create a united voice in speaking up on rights for bicyclists.
I am very much looking forward to getting back on my bike soon, and I can’t wait for Owen to fall in love with his own. (That’s an automatic thing, right?) We’re thinking of going the balance bike route (as opposed to the tricycle) for the little guy. And for me, I’ve been keeping an eye on this company. And I could very easily see myself riding to the beach on this lovely come next summer.
