Summer Sports Week: Bicycling
Tip #2: Make Yourself Known
In most U.S. cities, cars far outnumber bikes, making cycling more dangerous and deterring potential riders. Encourage green transportation in your community by participating in group rides like Critical Mass or local events such as San Francisco's Sunday Streets or Portland's Sunday Parkways. Can't find an event in your area? Make a date with friends. Remember to follow the rules of the road and be courteous at all times--you'll be more likely to tempt beginning cyclists to join you and to convince drivers that you belong on the road.
