    I believe that many recreational cyclists, joggers, runners, walkers, hikers just zone-out while engaged in their activity. You don't need ear buds blasting music to zone out completely. I see it on...

    It's super easy. But these articles never mention the reason most people get struck by a train. This is the deal.

    The bike rider arrives just as the train is clearing the track. He/she watches as...

    Where I live and ride (occasionally drive) it is always pleasing to me when a cyclist actually TRIES to be visible with lighting. 99% of the locals are Ninja cyclists. Those who use lights here...
