Last week, the USA Pro Challenge bike race passed within 20 feet of our Colorado headquarters. A few days later, our community is still buzzing from the historic event, and pro bike racing remains on our minds.While safe roads matter to everyone on a bike, professional cyclists spend more time on them than almost anyone. These talented, world-class athletes may seem super-human at times, but they are human like any of us—vulnerable on the open road.
In our new video, Vulnerable on the Open Road, five professional U.S. cyclists reflect on their experiences with bicycle safety. The riders share their visions for better bicycling conditions and lessons for safer motorist-bicyclist interactions.
Even though these riders are the top 1% of bicyclists, their advice—slow down, be aware, don’t blow through red lights, build more infrastructure, get more people riding—applies to anyone who likes to enjoy the simple pleasure of a bike ride.
Take a moment to listen to their experiences and, next time you ride (or drive), carry their advice out on the road with you.
