The Legal Side

Nick Griffiths, who bike commutes on Bruce B. Downs Blvd. to Moffett Cancer Center every day, sent a couple of terrific Velo columns written by former competitive cyclist and current bicycle lawyer Bob Mionske.

Bob deals with a couple of issues we potentially face every time we take our bicycle out on the road -- getting buzzed by cars and dealing with the aftermath of a bike-car crash that lands the bicyclist in the hospital.

It's good reading:

What to do about cars that buzz cyclists.

Racer Diana Panchyk's visit to the hospital after being struck.

Bob's email is mionskelaw@hotmail.com for legal questions and comments and bookbob2speak@gmail.com if you would like Bob to speak to your group, club or bike shop.
