A BikeAthens board member witnessed a nasty accident involving a cyclist on Milledge yesterday, and a few days ago, a man was struck by a car and dragged down the road. The motorist didn't stop.
We all hope these two cyclists are OK.

For the rest of you cyclists out there, please practice safe riding techniques.
Always wear a helmet
Ride on the street, not the sidewalk.
Wear bright clothes- an orange safety vest is best.
Use your head & tail-lights.
And ride predictably, so cars know what to expect from you.
Be safe, y'all.
