    NB by Treasury - the signs on the pavement say yield to peds, not stop at lights. They made no effort to make the lights visible to NB cyclists. Therefore, I stop for pedestrians legally crossing in...

    Both the kids' bikes have coaster brakes. I'd like to add hand brakes to get them used to using them. What do I need to know about choosing a brake? For reference, I checked to see if the rear brake...
