Bicyclists should stay on the defensive to stay safe

I saw this piece on the LA Times site and thought it would be a good read for everyone. The article features some great tips that every cyclist who commutes should take into consideration. Take a second and read it and pass it on to your fellow cyclist.

Bike path meeting recap

Last night at Franklin elementry school there was a public meeting to discuss some ideas to help people coexist when using the bike path. For the record it is not just a bike path it is a multi use path designed for pedestrians and cyclists alike. Some of the things that were talked about were widening the path, striping it from end to end, and the main topic was signage. We talked about proper signage. Propsing a speed limit along the parkways was a hot topic. Here are some photos from the night.
