The Bizness

Too many cycling deaths lately, this area known as Vacationland needs to start working harder to make it a more bike friendly community. Plenty of visitors use bikes as means of transportation.


No bicyclist just need to obey traffic laws like their supposed to. Instead of blowing red lights, weaving through waiting traffic, cutting people off when turning left and not signaling at all!
