Bicycle riding has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years. More and more people see it as an ecologically sound means of transportation rather than as simply a hobby. Unfortunately for this growing number of people, bicycle riders suffer from the same issues that make riding a motorcycle dangerous.
Too often bicycle riders are not noticed by drivers until an accident occurs. After an accident with a bicycle, many drivers say they did not see the bicycle at all. When drivers do not notice bicyclists they often dramatically underestimate their speed leading to collisions at intersections when a bicycle rider is travelling straight through and a driver is turning. Bicycle riders in the city are also at risk of being doored by an inattentive driver parked along a curb.
A new wrinkle in the bicycling landscape of our city is the advent of Divvy Bikes. This bicycle-sharing program places potentially inexperienced riders on bicycles that can be difficult to control for some due to the weight of the sturdy bicycle design.
