Not long ago, one of our team members did not know how to ride a bike. She was married, had two young children, and ran a home care agency; she was successful in every way except one: she couldn't ride a bike.

Fast forward in the story: she eventually learned to ride a bike at the age of 37 and fell in love with cycling. She rode everywhere and at all hours.

She enjoyed cycling but became increasingly frustrated when she was "schooled" or "mansplained" on how to ride, what to wear, what to do, what to say - heck, she was even hassled about the "brand & type" of helmet she wore..

But what was not shared were the "rules of the road for cyclists".
