Ride reports and other ramblings from a San Francisco cyclist.

Watch It. Learn It. Live It. Love It!

Watch this video:



If you remember nothing else, remember that "cyclists fare best when they act and are treated as drivers of vehicles." The cyclists demonstrating the techniques in this video make riding in traffic look easy -- and it really is! Generally, just behave on a bike as you would if you were driving a car or a motorcycle. It's really that simple, and I can't understand why the majority of people I see riding a bike can't grok this simple concept!

They've had a lifetime of people telling them that bikes don't belong on the road, that bikes are obstacles, that cars absolutely have the right of way.

For the second time in eight months, this kind of riding has resulted in the death of a cyclist in Santa Cruz on Hwy 1 at Bay Street yesterday. A cement truck passed the cyclist, who was hugging the curb, struck him and killed him.
