    This driver didn't see me either despite my reflective jacket, 1000 lumen headlight, and green wheel lights. Visibility does not work if people don't use their eyes!

    In case anyone wants it, here is the 2010 study on the Idaho stop and safety. 14.5% drop in injuries is nothing to sneeze at. I hope we can repeat this study in Delaware!

    Headed home on Monday, I was pleased that I spit out a bug that only partially made it into my mouth instead of swallowing it. Bike commuting certainly changes one's perspective on winning!

    I have seen this guy too but just once. Odd for sure but good luck getting this enforced. I have seen Park Police drive their motorcycles across the 14th St Bridge Path which is also a definite no-no.
