Yes, the long hot summer has come to an end (well, the traditional summer from Memorial Day to Labor Day anyway, since the fall equinox won’t happen until Sunday, September 22). Whatever became of what the Los Angeles Daily News called the Summer of Cycling? The editorial board lamented the increased friction between bicyclists and motorists who often must share the road in order to reach their destinations. The solution, according to editors, is for bicyclists to better know the laws of the road as it pertains to bicycling, to which education programs would prove essential. Others point to better policies at the municipal level and events such as CicLAvia that can help promote bike travel and protect riders. Readers also chipped in on some ideas.
