I love to ride my bike in the neighborhood. Everyday, hubby and I have a 20-minute bike ride and if we are not tired, we go for another 10-minute ride further down the block. We love this hobby and it became part of our daily routine which for us, an easy exercise. We usually schedule it at 10 AM or 2 PM because the streets are quiet and not busy. From time to time, cars passes by us but since I am not comfortable cycling with cars nearby, I have to stop everytime. Awkward huh?
Road accidents happen all the time so; I would rather stop when there are coming cars than regret for anything that can happen. The photo above was taken along the Kennedy Parkway Road here on Merritt Island. A cyclist died in this area. This road is wide and not busy except for rush hour. Such a sad picture right? Anyway, this image always reminds me to watch out for nearby cars when I am riding my bike.
