The bicycle was invented in 1817. For over 200 years, people have used this beloved mechanical conveyance for fun, exercise, and commuting. But when the motor vehicle arrived, sharing the road became dangerous. Modern bicycle lanes were built in the 1970s, but bicycle accidents continue. Almost 800 bicyclists died in accidents with motor vehicles in 2017.
If you’re a bicyclist, we want you to celebrate World Bicycle Safety Day knowing how to protect your rights on the road.
