Cycling advice to my neighbourhood kids.

Advice to the girl riding her bike along Windsor Ave this afternoon.

Do up your helmet strap. It won’t protect your brain from a concussion if it isn’t on your head. 

Slow down. You’re riding on the sidewalk. Doh.

The largest proportion of cycling accidents happen at intersections. I see cars slow roll through that stop sign all the time. 

Speaking of intersections, every driveway you scooted by is an intersection. A cyclist speeding along the sidewalk is the last thing a driver is looking for.

In a fight between flesh and steel, flesh always loses.
