Chris, I agree with previous opinions about teaching riding
skills. What we as "experienced" riders need to do is
educate the general public as to proper riding techniques
and safety. Its the old Abbie Hoffman (or was it Gerry Rubin?)
statement, "you're either a part of the solution, or part
of the problem" (paraphrased since I don't recall much of
BTW welcome back, missed your posts.
I think cyclists in general are better drivers in that we
seem to be more curteous (for lack of a better word),
more observant, and more fluid in our driving (which is
what they teach autoracers, police etc.).
If every licensed driver were required to ride at
least 5 miles in traffic a year I'd bet we'd see a dramatic
difference in driver attitude etc.
just my $.02
