I am a triathlete living in Bend, Oregon. I’m sad to hear less and less people want to ride on the road here and are switching to mountain biking instead because of safety (mountain biking is great, I love it too, but why can’t we be able to feel safe on all bikes?!). I see how many cars almost hit me every time I go on a run and it scares me to think how many more almost hit me on a bike ride that I just can’t see. I want to be an ambassador to get people to see that cyclists are important and have a right to be on the road as well!
