I Heart Bikes
Q: If motor vehicles are riding on the streets, must they obey the same traffic laws that bicycles have to follow? I've seen numerous motor vehicles blast down streets over the speed limit; and fail to look before making turns, much less signal before doing so.

A: Yes, motorists are required to follow the same rules of the road as cyclists.
From Claire, who was inspired by similar questions in numerous newspaper columns about traffic and driving.

Bicycle ambulances in developing countries.

Cycledog teaches bicycle education in Tulsa Public Schools; excellent!

Product recall: Target brand scooters because parts might break off. I thought that was pretty much normal for any $20 push scooter bought from discount retailers.

Team Phonak is no more, just in case you haven't heard already.

Interbike is only a month away. Who's going?
