Bicyclists behave badly. That's the perception that many non-bicyclists have of us as a group. Blowing red lights, weaving through traffic and scaring grandma on the sidewalk. We all know that bicyclists are not the lone scofflaws on the street - 37,000 fatalities and 3 million injuries a year are not the result of courteous driving. But we as bicyclists need to set the example to help usher in a new era of safer, saner travel.
We can make bicycling better by demanding better facilities and planning for bicycles. But we can also make Philadelphia, and the entire Delaware Valley, a better place to bike by taking 13 steps to make your ride safer and better.
