I’ve used Window Wednesday previously to provide a “window” into my world. So here’s your peak in today. This isn’t my life, but it’s something that worries me … greatly.
Check out this video….
I don’t need to say a lot that wasn’t said in that video. I’ll only add that not one time have I gotten on my bike and not thought about what could happen if I were to be hit by a car. I know that many drivers find cyclists to be annoying. I promise you that we are not trying to be. We are simply trying to ride our bikes. I have had more close encounters than I care to think about. I promise you that no where that you are going is worth the guilt that you will live with for the rest of your life if you hit a cyclist. I am teaching my kids to ride their bikes respectfully on the road. I promise that they will obey the traffic laws. Please be aware of us and treat us with respect and use caution.
