Riders are encouraged to where a helmet, and are responsible for their own safety. Riding in traffic is dangerous. As more cyclists use their bike for transportation (with I-235 construction) the more aware motorists will be of our presence. You are encouraged to "Share the Road" with motorists but a cyclist is most safe when they are treated and act like a driver of a motor vehicle.
