Ride to be seen and ride as if you’re not seen. Bicycling is most often an enjoyable adventure. To help ensure your bicycle experience remains enjoyable and safe, wear bright colors, use flashing lights (tail and head lights) and ride defensively while wearing your helmet. Better to be safe instead of becoming a victim involved with a vehicle.
There have been several recent bicycle and vehicle collisions in our community. On October 15th. Joschka Homann a German tourist was the victim of hit and run on Highway 1. On October 30th. Sidney Falbo a local Santa Rosa Junior College Student was killed on the corner of Stony Point and Highway 12. In November, Ian Borden was struck by a vehicle.
By taking precautions you can enjoy a safe bicycle ride.
