Your 2 Cents: Give More Cyclists More Room As They Ride

A rider was hit by a vehicle in a charity bicycle ride I rode in this weekend. Last night I urged drivers to be considerate of cyclists because there are going to be more and more of us getting our exercise on two wheels as we get older.

Here's what you had to say:

Heather: "I was literally cheering when I was watching the news last night and Kelly was giving his 2 cents!"

Erik in Edmond: "I have no problem sharing the road with riders but I do have a problem with the ones who run stop signs."

Several shared that sentiment.

Kristen in Newalla: "Bicycles are toys and toys do not belong on the roadways. Keep the toys in the park where they belong."

Benni in Oklahoma City: "Makes me sick and frankly here we go again backwards Oklahomans!"

Eric in Enid: "I give them room but they don't own the street. Ride in single file please!"

Jim in Yukon: "There is a state statute that states you must give bicyclists at least 3 feet clearance when passing them."

Makyla: "A bicycle does not belong on the highways, busy city streets or any streets without shoulders."

Tony in Yukon: "Unfortunately not everyone pays attention while driving and if your dumb enough to put yourselves in harms way than the fault lies with you."

Patrick: "I've seen some of the most heartless, brainless, and angry comments I can remember seeing on any of your "Two Cents" posts....and they just Can't be from Oklahomans..."

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's Your 2 Cents.
