Photo hunt: garbage

I wasn’t sure about this theme, until I looked out the window.


Garbage…  In my yard.  a bottle rocket.


Thursday 13: Bike riding

13 do’s and don’t of bike riding.  Common sense really.

  1. Don’t ride your bike while listening to your music.  You can’t hear traffic.
  2. Don’t try to “beat the vehicle”.  It can only be tragic if you don’t beat it.
  3. Do wear a proper fitting helmet.
  4. Do ride on the street with traffic.
  5. If you must ride on the sidewalk, Do be vigilant of cars and driveways.
  6. Don’t weave in and out.  Stay in a consistent line.
  7. If you ride on public trails, Do be mindful of other trail users.  Walkers, other bikers, skateboarders etc
  8. Do be visible to motorists.
  9. Do follow the rules of the road.  I have stopped for school buses twice in the past because as a bicyclist, I have to follow the rules of the road.
  10. Don’t wear baggy pants.  They can get caught in the gears
  11. Do make sure to ride a bike that’s your size.
  12. Do know your biking limitations.
  13. Do have fun!
