Bike Safety Awareness - Be Safe - Be Seen
Whether daytime, dawn, dusk, foul weather, or at night, you need to be seen by others. Wearing white has not been shown to make you more visible. Rather, always wear neon, fluorescent, or other bright colors when riding day or night.
Also wear something that reflects light, such as reflective tape or markings, or flashing lights. Remember, just because you can see a driver doesn't mean the driver can see you. For more bicycle safety tips, visit NHTSA.gov
A program of Yay Bikes!, Pedal Instead provides bike corals for public events. Imagine a coat check for bicycles- free, secure bicycle parking available for cyclists at festivals and other events around Columbus, Ohio. Corrals help reduce event congestion and educate the general public about bicycling for transportation!
PELOTONIA is a grassroots bike tour with one goal: to end cancer. 100% of every dollar raised is donated directly to life-saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center- James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
We all know someone who has been affected by cancer. If you know Dan Weisenbach, then you now know one more person. He has Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. This year he will be riding Pelotonia as a "survivor". More importantly, he is a success story for the research and advanced treatments supported by Pelotonia and other fundraisers such as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team-In-Training.
One of every two American men and one of every three American women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. By supporting Pelotonia, you will help improve lives through innovative research with the ultimate goal of winning the war against cancer. We would love to have your support, as this is truly a unique opportunity to be a part of something special.
Please help make a difference for current and future cancer patients. Learn more and consider making a donation at Dan's Pelotonia fundraising page:www.Pelotonia.org/weisenbach
Since 1949, LLS has been dedicated to curing leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary (nonprofit) health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services.
One of the largest fundraisers for LLS is called Team In Training (TNT). Since 1988, more than 600,000 LLS Team In Training participants have helped LLS invest more than $1 billion for blood cancer research. With full or half marathons, triathlons, cycling and hiking events offered, TNT sets the standard for endurance sports training programs for charity. Learn more at TeamInTraining.org
The 2015 LLS cycling team is riding in honor of their "Hero" and former LLS teammate, Dan Weisenbach, who successfully finished lymphoma treatments in March. Dan is not quite ready for a 100-mile ride in the mountains, but "Dan's Road Warrior's" are committed to raising $100,000 for blood cancer research. You can help them meet their goal: LLS TNT Dan's Road Warriors fundraising page.
