Bike without fear this Sunday!

A new law passed by the state legislature aims to curb the state’s shamefully high cyclist death rate by criminalizing the practice of “buzzing.”

“If a car is going slower than you want to go, you can’t just blow your horn, yell and cuss at them and expect them to move off the road so you can pass,” said George Martin, executive director of the Safe Bicycling Coalition of Palm Beach County. “Why should someone expect that of a bicyclist?”

I couldn’t have said it better myself. Now all that’s required is to have police officers willing to enforce such a law. Who’s up for a ride to celebrate?
