Of course, our wonderful weather brings an increase of outdoor activity, and May is National Bicycle Safety Month. I am an avid recreational cyclist, and have been for quite a while. Maybe I have just been lucky, but my bad experiences on the road have been few and far between. I feel mutual respect is the key here, cyclist need to do what they can to be visible and lawful, and vehicle drivers need to PAY ATTENTION to the road and yield to bicyclists when appropriate. Most of my close calls were with drivers on the phone or whose attention was pulled away from the road. We are all in this together, so let’s do what we can to watch out for each other.
