Bicycling is one of the best and most fun ways to stay in shape, explore the outdoors, save money on gas and reduce pollution. The benefits of this lifelong sport are almost endless. However, to fully enjoy this activity for years, riders must take additional precautions to navigate the host of hazards that come with sharing the road with vehicles.

I never thought I would end up overweight. I had spent most of my life as a very fit and competitive runner, so I exercised a lot. But at 53 years old, as a mother of two with a very stressful job that required lots of travel and commuting, I found myself with 20 pounds too many. Unable to lose the weight on my own, I knew I had to do something different.
