SVBC member spreads holiday cheer and sage advice

Longtime member of Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition and the San Carlos Transportation and Circulation Commission, 2010 Bike Commuter of the Year winner, and all-around enthusiastic proponent of pedal power Margaret Pye just got an op-ed piece published in the Daily Journal of San Mateo County. With a wink and a smile, Margaret dishes up some sound advice for motorists on sharing the road with cyclists:

Stay awake and aware. Look around you. Expect to see pedestrians and bicyclists, among other road users. Give a smile and a wave as you acknowledge the existence of others. I don’t drive a convertible, but my head is always out in the elements, and I never use ear buds or headphones to listen to music while bicycling. This means we can talk to each other. I enjoy yielding to pedestrians and saying, “Go ahead!” with a smile.

Well put, Margaret, and thank you for showing such a positive example the cycling community – happy, healthy, and ready to share the road safely.
