When students in cycling courses ask me “who is at fault” for a given type of crash, I always respond, “The law doesn’t protect you on the road, only in court.” But too often the law won’t protect you in court, either. Cycling on the road gives you the best advantages for both preventing a crash and protecting yourself should one occur.

Communication is the most useful thing that most cyclists never do.

I shuddered and said a prayer for his safety. I fervently hoped the dictum would hold true: Even when done poorly, bicycling is very safe.

When I booked this trip, riding my bike in Chicago seemed as farfetched as the Cubs winning the World Series.

Within a few short hours, a man who hasn't been on a bicycle since he was a child rides with ease on one of America's ridiculously auto-centric bridges. How is this possible?

I learned through CyclingSavvy that if I wait for a green light to turn right onto major arterial roads, I typically get the road all to myself for the amount of time I need to be on it.

CyclingSavvy opened up a whole world of cycling possibilities for me. While I do wish for more pedestrian accommodations in my community and more connections between neighborhoods, I no longer depend on those things. I don't let the lack of bicycle-specific accommodations or connections limit where I go. With CyclingSavvy, you really can bike anywhere.

Why did that person--and sometimes it seems most of society--assume cyclists belong at the edge of the road? Why will strangers presume that it's OK to get in your face and yell at you? While I'm not a sociologist, I have some theories.
