Please continue riding safely and be especially attentive to all vehicular traffic.  Road Rage is at an all-time high.  Impatient drivers look for any excuse to behave foolishly around cyclists.  We urge you to use a rear view clip-on mirror for enhanced road awareness.  As always, keep way to the right of the white line, ride 100% defensively.  No single finger salutes, or any other form of push-back! Use front & rear flashing lights at all times (Nite Rider makes many excellent models!) to be seen day & nightAlways stay alert & expect the unexpected!          

Happy New Year!!
