I'm a cyclist and ride my road bike everyday: to see clients and customers, to having tea with a friend, farm food shopping, going to church on Sundays or just riding with my son on Saturday mornings. I love it, why? Because I see and talk to all kinds of people, and meet new faces everyday. I can bike through traffic, construction, detours, but all through being cautious, considered, and careful. It is my desire, plans and goal to visit elementary, middle school and especially high school and educate students on the importance of biking safely and why it is so important to wear a helmet, even to the corner store. My friend and I went for a bike ride today for 2 hrs and she fell off her bike and hit her head on a guardrail, she was fine. Why, because she was wearing her helmet. I love biking. Biking is excellent for heart, liver, lungs, legs, oxygen and etc. Since I gave up my car that's too expensive to maintain, I really enjoy biking more. Why haven't I done this earlier in my life? It's Enjoyable and pleasant to bike in the city. I'm faster than most buses...that's awesome! Also, please bike on the right side of the street, be kind, and respectful of each other. Wear a helmet, please!
