    I'll pass this on to everyone I know who rides plus those contemplating. Always great to have as much information as possible. Thank-you for posting.

    I teach bicycle safety and this pertains pretty closely to the dangers the bicyclist faces and the strategies that both communities need to consider for safety.

    There is a reason flat trackers only turn to the left.

    Pop quiz- how many times have you "crashed" at 0 mph?

    To the best of my recollection I think my answer is 4.

    Good stuff, we can't be reminded to many times how to be safer when we ride.

    Nice to know my flummoxes tend to be more of the "drop" variety rather than a "crash".

    My close calls have been because I didn't leave enough room or wasn't paying enough attention.

    Also when I leave 2 seconds worth of distance between me and the car in front of me some yahoo tries to squeeze in there.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!
