Advice for tentative cyclists in Edmonton: How to take the road back on your bike

This is very true. For cyclists to be safe on the road, they need to ride in the middle of the lane. At this time of year, there is a lot of gravel and debris, next to the curb. As well, motorists can easily ignore, or fail to see, cyclists who are riding next to the curb. I often think of the 50-year-old woman who was killed by a garbage truck a few blocks from my home. She was riding to work, in the daylight, on a cycling route. Unfortunately, the driver could not see her, turned right, and she died. Good advice to get help from experienced cyclists before starting to ride.
