I’m Laura. I have been a triathlete now for more than half my life. I did my first one at the tender age of 20 years old back in 2001. I am a mother of two boys, a wife, a daughter, a sister. As most people who have been riding bikes for a while, I have had my share of close encounters with cars but luckily have never come away with much worse than some cuts, a destroyed helmet and bruised ego. I hope with more visibility of the cycling community, we will be able to reduce the number of cyclist having close encounters, or worse with vehicles.
