Cycling to distant spots requires safety



“My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything. The perfect day: riding a bike to the library.” ― Peter Golkin

“In the good old summertime” as the warmer weather takes hold of things our thoughts turn to becoming more active out-of-doors: barbecues on our decks and patios; playing baseball on the neighborhood sand lots;  family picnics in nearby parks; walking about local neighborhoods; and of course, for the more adventurous among us bicycling all over creation.

Remember before you do take the cycle out of the moth balls and into the streets to ensure your cycle and you are ready for the roads ahead.

Wear the proper head-gear and inspect your vehicle for correct tire pressure, spoke alignment and bring a water bottle in case you get thirsty along the way.

One farmer’s market this past weekend featured a free bicycle clinic offering tips and safety advice for both the novice cycling enthusiast and the more seasoned rider.

Distant locations require that you and your bike can go the distance.

Be safety conscious and observe the rules of the road. 

And above all have fun!  —  gc

  1. I am tempted to use the English phrase here ‘On yer bike!’ Which loosely translated means Bugger Off! (Not you)

    Those of us who live on narrow Country Lanes are frequently irritated by summer cyclists riding two abreast and making it impossible for car drivers to pass safely.

  2. I was a cyclist for decades. My wife and I rode a tandem thousands of miles. Motorist should consider other people, rather than just themselves.
