The California Vehicle Code generally considers bicycles on the road as vehicles, so cyclists need to know their rights and responsibilities on California roads. Many people enjoy cycling for leisure, for exercise, or as an eco-friendly alternative to driving to and from work. Bike lanes and the legal right to “take the

The Joy of Dirt

Considering the fact that I don’t own a mountain bike, I spend quite a bit of time riding dirt trails. It’s gotten to the point where I don’t consider a ride complete if I haven’t felt dirt under my tires. Sure, maybe I should look into getting a mountain bike, but I’m
