Sharing the road with a bike may not be the easiest thing to do. After recent deaths of people being hit by cars, it is important to always remain aware.
WSBT 22 spoke with a biker from the Michiana Bike Coalition.
J.V. Peacock has been an avid biker for years. He has always practiced safe biking. His number one rule: Never bike without a light. Bicycles and cars, they’re two very different forms of transportation. But when it comes to the rules of the road, they’re not so different. Bikes move with traffic as runners or walkers run against traffic. Though bikes are allowed on the road, Peacock says cars don’t always share the road. “People don’t know that cyclists have a right away on the road they want us off the road,” said Peacock.
