Cycling advice to my neighbourhood kids.

May 17, 2015

Advice to the girl riding her bike along Windsor Ave this afternoon.

Do up your helmet strap. It won’t protect your brain from a concussion if it isn’t on your head. 

Slow down. You’re riding on the sidewalk. Doh.

The largest proportion of cycling accidents happen at intersections. I see cars slow roll through that stop sign all the time. 

Speaking of intersections, every driveway you scooted by is an intersection. A cyclist speeding along the sidewalk is the last thing a driver is looking for.

In a fight between flesh and steel, flesh always loses.
