Maybe the person wasn't listening to music. Maybe they were listening to a podcast about the dangers of crossing the road without a helmet and reflective vest?

I ride with music every time. I also have a mirror to let me know if cars/cyclists are passing me. The bigger issue is knowing your surroundings/threats than being able to listen to tunes while you...

You guys are kidding, right? France is smaller than the state of Texas. To ask Americans to give up the automobile is futile, especially when the cost of gasoline is below $2.00. I like your...

VC does not work, at least in small rural towns. If you ride in the lane, you will get run over by a 1980's truck. Best option is to ride near the fog line, give way to cars, and just try to enjoy...
