I'm one of those advocates for bicycling; Effective Cycling Instructor since 1986 now a League Cycling Instructor regional trainer for LAB. Yeah, I'm pretty involved with helping to make bicycling safer, mostly by educating bicyclists but also planners, engineers, police, etc. Here's a short list I sometimes use under my signature.

Chair, SANDAG Bicycle Pedestrian Working Group
Vice Chair, Calif. Bicycle Advisory Committee
President, Calif. Association of Bicycle Organizations
Board Member, Calif. Bicycle Coalition
Chair, Strategic Highway Safety Plan, Bicycling Safety
Spokesperson, San Diego County Bicycle Coalition
League LCI Trainer & Effective Cycling Instructor #185 K-C

Oh yeah.
" Please use the introductions forum to tell us something about yourself: Where are you from? What do you ride? How long have you been riding? Anything else we should know about you?"

I'm 60 plus, married with two boys at home (17 and 20). We have loads of bikes here from pedicab to track. My boys and I rode across the US this summer using the Adventure Cycling Northern Tier route for most of the way - self-contained, camped about 1/3 of the time (it was HOT this summer!). That was my second crossing; first time 1976 with Bikecentennial. I live in San Diego, CA

We'll expect to see some interesting thoughts exchanged on the Advocacy & Safety forum .

If you need to relax after that, do you like vintage bikes? We'll welcome you over there .

Welcome to BF!

Hi Jim and welcome from another LCI (#1076). I'm just a kid when on my bike (62 years old).

I like your various signatures.
I also like this one --> "I'm not blocking traffic. I AM traffic."
