Turnabout is fairplay
I need to say this upfront. I’m generally pro-bike on the roads. I give them as much space as I can when passing. Heck, I even have a bike I ride around town now and then. Bicycles are a great mode of transportation. What I don’t like, however, are the bicyclists who don’t obey the…
