Wow! What a great post! There is no magic bullet. We need constant vigilance. More bicyclists need to get engaged in advocacy. A friend said years ago, for many cyclists “advocacy isn’t their issue, until it’s their issue.” If you ride a bike and come across something wrong, make it your issue. The Marines have a saying, “Every Marine, a rifleman.” Well, it’s time to fight! Many have soldiered on for years on advocacy issues with little or no awareness or appreciation from our riding buddies. It’s not too hard to get involved – start small with one thing. Like taking photos of debris on the road and sending them to the DPW to ask they clean it up. Simple, takes a few minutes, and congratulations, you are an advocate!
