    “West Hollywood Cyclist Injured By Turning Big Rig Truck”

    Riding on the sidewalk is rarely the safest option. Back when I was
    an instructor it was the single most difficult thing to teach novice
    cyclists – because it does not seem intuitive.

    She was right-hooked probably because of poor sight lines which is
    the prime reason why you don’t ride on sidewalks. If there is no bike
    lane take the lane for your own safety. I ride through WeHo 5 days a
    week on my way to Santa Monica and it’s always very crazy because of the
    desperate traffic and amount of parking going on.

    And those bike lanes are not great overall. Ask any commuting cyclist
    and they will tell you about the bike lanes in WeHo. Weho can be a
    gauntlet even for experienced, trained cyclists.

    We fear that all of those new bike shares are going to be putting
    tourists and novice cyclists in peril because of the riding conditions
    in WeHo. Especially the Europeans who are accustomed to being respected
    by motorists and having well-designed infrastructure.
