After the spree of recent bike accidents, it might be a good idea to brush up on the biking AND driving etiquette.
The Biking Federation of Wisconsin gives three pieces of advice for bikers and drivers. First, everyone, bicyclists and motorists, need to follow the law. Second, bicyclists need to have biking skills to be safe on the road. Last, everyone needs to be aware of the different road users on the road.
Dar Ward from the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin says, "Be aware that they are out there and they have a right to the road, and then just trying to be as attentive of a driver as you can, following all the rules you are supposed to follow in terms of going a certain speed and stopping at lights and such, but also just being aware, particularly when you are making turns."
If you are looking to brush up on your biking skills there are multiple biking classes you can take, including ones done by the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin, the U.W, and some local hospitals and bike shops.
