I am a bike commuter form SW suburbs of Cleveland. I've been cranking to work at least 12 years (over 180 times/year recently).
My concerns include protecting cyclists right to the roads, improving bicycle traffic laws, cyclists' legal defense and educating society about cycling.
I have a big advocacy section on the Crankmail Web Site. This includes a survey of local bicycle traffic ordanances in 60 NE Ohio communities (results are not good).
As mentioned in another post, I am running for the board of the League of American Bicyclists. I hope to get LAB to do more of the needs listed above. I need 50 signatures on petitions by late Dec. Please help if you are an LAB memeber and live in IL, IN, MI or OH. http://www.geocities.com/fredoswald/LAB.html
