Thanks to Matt for his description of why it is so dangerous to ride on the wrong side of the road.
What type of education is being done at schools now that many students are commuting by e-bikes?
Thanks to Matt for reporting that motorists who hit cyclists almost always say they didn't see them. Visibility is a key to avoiding collisions.
Is it okay for children to ride on sidewalks?
Thanks to Matt for the description of how to ride a motorcycle defensively and how that should apply to cyclists as well.
I learned a ton!
I live near Carlsbad High School and have seen many kids on ebikes go through stop signs without looking. What can we do about this? thanks!
My husband rides more than 100 miles a month. He is very cautious, but I worry. Should I?

How do you know what road speed is for a bike lane or a sharrow?
Thank you Pete and Matt! Awesome information.
Very informative and useful, thank you both!
Just a note, you can catch these recordings on the Age Friendly Carlsbad Website and on Carlsbad Commuter's site as well.
To answer Lolly's Question on speed for Bike Lanes and Sharrows.
WHEN YOU ARE WALKING- Be predictable. Follow the rules of the road and obey signs and signals.- Walk on the sidewalk. If there is no sidewalk and you have to walk on the road,walk facing traffic. Always walk as far from traffic as possible.- Cross at the corner. Cross at crosswalks or intersections wherever possible.This is where drivers expect to see pedestrians.Stop and look left-right-left. Before crossing the street, pause, then lookleft-right-then left again until no cars are coming.Make eye contact. Never assume drivers see you. Make eye contact with driversas they approach you and make sure you are seen.Keep your eyes up, ears open, and off your phone. Don’t talk/text or listen tomusic when crossing the street.Be safe. Be seen. Wear bright clothing during the day. At night, wear reflectivematerial or carry a light. This will caution drivers to be careful because they can seesomeone walking ahead.
If there is sufficient roadway width, Bike Lanes are generally uses for roads with travel speeds above 25 MPH. Sharrows are generally used where there is insufficient width for a Bike Lane and the Speed Limits are not higher than 35 MPH. Laguna Drive is an example of an important bike route that is too narrow for Bike Lanes.
21966 cvc - No pedestrian shall proceed along a bicycle path or lane where there is an adjacent adequate pedestrian facility.
Thanks to Mike for the trails that can provide Safe Routes to School. Kids learn better if they get to school walking or cycling, not to mention the other advantages to their health.
is smoking or vaping allowed on trails?
Great presentation Mike. I'll review the recorded version. Need to sign off now.
Thanks to all!
