Should you be using daytime running lights? The answer is, uh, maybe. But they are usually not necessary, and they don’t fix some mistakes.

The paradox is that while it appears cyclists give up independence by accepting and responding to the principles of traffic, they actually gain freedom of travel.

If I had any inclination to ride close to the parked cars — which of course, being a savvy cyclist, I didn't — the snow would have prevented me. In effect, the snow is creating a very effective door zone buffer!

Cyclists using e-bikes need to know how they and their bikes work together, especially under high-speed, emergency and/or adverse conditions. As Clint Eastwood said in the movie Magnum Force, “A man’s got to know his limitations.” Therefore, the faster you intend to go, the more skill and training you need.

Four days after returning to St. Louis, I walked into my local e-bike dealer with my credit card ready. My husband and I didn't own a cargo bike. After riding my sister’s electric cargo bike in Nashville, I wanted to see for myself if an e-cargo bike could truly replace car trips.

E-bikes aren't replacements for bikes. They replace cars. They can move you across town, and over steep hills, at higher speeds with less effort while still offering clean, low-cost transportation. But there’s a catch many people don’t realize.

Rather than tell millions of others to change their habits in an environment that discourages them from doing so, what if we changed our cycling strategies to take advantage of the habits drivers already have?

Communication is central to success as a bicyclist. With other road users, it is mostly through lane positioning, hand signals and head turns. Horses, though, respond to different signals.

I credit CyclingSavvy courses for giving me the confidence to safely navigate urban, suburban and rural country roads. Without their incredibly helpful instructors, cycling and my streak would never become something I look forward to each day and each mile.

I took several deep breaths and attempted to compose myself. My understanding of traffic patterns, bicycle handling skills, and brakes in good working order had just saved my life.
