Sharing the road
You might have noticed a line of cyclists, all appropriately attired, and giving the clearest of turn signals yesterday on Main Street.
It was a gathering of Connecticut cyclists, all hoping to earn "certified safety trainer" status from the US Cycling Federation. Councilman David Bauer, and the city's public works department made the empty City Hall parking lot available for intitial training, then the cyclist took to the street for a safety workout.
The goal is to train at least 15 certified trainers to pass the word about safe practices in cycling, especially when riding in urban settings.
