Police Officer training

Here’s an excerpt from MassBike’s police officer training program:

The major objective of the program is to give law enforcement officers of all backgrounds the tools they need to properly enforce the laws that affect bicyclists.

Although LAPD has a great Bike Cop program, bicycle laws are hardly enforced. I got a ticket for not stopping at a stop sign back in High School, it really pissed me off, but every since then, I rarely blow thru stop signs. On the other hand, my co-worker was complaining that cops really enforce the helmet law around his neighborhood and that discourages kids to ride their bikes. So the questions would be:

Could a crack down on helmet-less kids, riding on sidewalks and riding the opposite way of traffic discourage the use of bikes? Or could it actually increase awareness?

My favorite part is when she shouts out her one liners at the biker as she is driving by. I can’t tell you how many times I hear a sound coming from a driver (something like a record fast forwarding). I can’t understand a word they are saying, but boy do they think they are clever!!!!

Cycling Buddy

Yeah, sometimes it can be lonely being a bike commuter, its not like riding on a peloton or a club ride. So I usually ride with my ‘biking buddies’

Biking Buddy

My newest ‘buddy’ is Charlie Brown. Why? Because being a bike commuter, sometimes I do feel like we are portrayed like outcasts, weird, and a little dorky. However, Charlie Brown never gives up and is persistent and determined, sort of like Bike Commuters!
