And speaking of staying safe on the road, read this interesting article from Slate about how wearing a helmet on a bicycle isn’t nearly as effective in keeping you safe from automobiles as simply being a girl. It seems drivers instinctively know to stay away from us crazy ladies on bikes. Via NotCot.
