Avoiding Bike Accidents
While I do not want to be 'paranoid' about riding in traffic, I am well aware of the dangers. I have been studying up on cycling safety. With many years of riding behind me, I am not a novice. However, it never hurts to bone up on the latest intelligence about riding safely when there is traffic around.
Most of my training is done on rural roads, bike trails and in a park with relatively little traffic. However, I do encounter traffic once in awhile.
Attached to this post is a mind map I developed with what I consider to be some of the best wisdom on riding a bike safely in traffic. The link to this image is here. If you follow the link you'll be able to download the mind map image and get a better view. When clicking on the image in this post, you can enlarge it.
