The spring sunshine is here. The City is busy clearing the roads of the sand, rocks and debris of the past winter.
Hooray! It's time to ride bikes on roads again.
I would like to make a quick public service announcement to cyclists and drivers.
1) please stop using your mobile device as you travel
2) please signal before you turn
3) please shoulder check before you turn
As an aside, I would love to have the City/RCMP do a blitz on mobile device usage by operators. I ride across the Robert Campbell bridge every day, multiple times, and the number of drivers using their smart-device while driving could fund a whole lot of community events.
Have fun and be safe out there people!
