Congratulations to Emily P. who was the first person to correctly guess that we were in Lombard on the Illinois Prairie Path stopped and waiting to cross at Main Street.
We’re holding off on posting a new picture today to bring you this timely public service announcement. This may look familiar to some of our followers, but we believe that it’s a message worth sharing often. Please share this with your friends, family, co-workers and anyone else that you know who rides a bike.
- CAUTION: Do not assume motorists will stop for you. In the eyes of the law, a cyclist on the road has the same rights and responsibilities as motorists–stop for stop signs, signal turns and wait for traffic to clear before crossing a street.
- COURTESY: Use verbal cues or a bike bell to alert people you are passing them. If you need a bell, contact LiNiTo Cycle; we can set you up with the bell of your choice.
- COMMON SENSE: Cars weigh over 2 tons. The average bicycle rider on their bike weighs 200 pounds. Do the math. Bicyclists will never win over a motorist. See #1.
