Rant #3 – The Never Ending Safety Issues
Posted On May 2, 2010
The other day a member of our bicycle club was telling a group of us how safe someone was who she regularly rode with. We all listened politely. When she left we looked at each other and rolled our eyes. To a person we all felt the ‘safe rider’ being described was extremely careless on the road.
Yesterday about 12 or us were riding a along the L.I.E. service road in Long Island, NY (not too much traffic on weekends) when two riders in there own group whipped past us on the right.
Group riding safety IS important, not only for the safety factor but for the enjoyment of all who are on the ride.
I am not going to post yet another a list of safe riding topics.
If you do not know what they are, you can find them all over the internet.
If you do not care what they are, you should not be riding with other people.
