Good for Ms. Helgers! Too many people have been conditioned to believe that a bicycle is a child's toy or that cycling is simply a recreational activity. Once you "grow up", an adult uses a car to get around. We need to break out of that mindset and start to see the bicycle as a viable transportation option, not to be ridiculed, but admired.

Thanks Cher!

Great article. Hope it encourages people to get out and ride! "I soon realized that I could ride my bicycle in half the time, and for free, so I started riding to work a few days a week. "

Great article. More power to her. I give her lots of credit too. I just pray that people who are driving their cars are much more courteous to people on their bikes. Thanks Cher

II hatet bicycles, but I walk instead. It takes longer times and you need to carry your groceries. People on bicycles seems to have no knowledged on the trafficrules.
