My good friend Sarah posted this on her blog prowomenscycling.com to help raise awareness that road cyclists have the same right to use the public roads as motorists do. Of course we cyclists (amateur/recreational, club racer, pro, whatever!) have certain conditions i.e. ride on bike lanes where existing, ride no more than two abreast if in a group, follow the same road rules as motorists etc., but that being said NO motorist, to the best of my knowledge, is permitted by law to deny or impede in any way access to the road to cyclists.
If only the knuckleheads in Jacksonville, Florida would only get the message... still, we on two wheels make our presence known, whether they like it (and us) or not!
