There are bikers of all abilities and ages. Some are amazing and bike like Lance Armstrong. However, many are not so accomplished. Regardless of age or ability, every biker should give a warning when passing from behind.

The law has provided three feet of protection for bikers from cars. Now it's time for bikers to be just as wise and courteous by simply saying three little words when passing: "On your left!"

Cars don't own the road. Bikers don't own the bike paths. We all need to play together.
