Spring is a Dangerous Time for Bikers

It was a long winter, but Spring is finally here.  That means Philadelphia's bicycle scene is blossoming, just like the cherry trees along the Schuylkill River.  That should bring a smile to everyone's face.

But Spring can also be a dangerous time for bicyclists.  Many are getting back on the road for the first time in several months.  City drivers are reacquainting themselves with the 4 foot rule.  And, to make matters worse, the Spring thaw means potholes will be everywhere.

A word of advice: get back into it slowly.  Review the laws, stay away from Broad Street and, most importantly, have your bicycle serviced at your neighborhood shop.
