|Thankfully, they pulled in somewhat|
Two cyclists on a cross-Canada trip were killed one July afternoon on Highway 11/17 near Red Rock. A group of 25 cyclists traveling across the country. It was on one couple's bucket list to do so. I can see how it would happen. Drivers get frustrated, they try to pass, and there is a
dangerous situation. They were part of a Tour de Canada.
I have photos of bike riders. We have big bike tours around here, and I've been to council to protest them. They simply do not stop in our towns, they cycle through, causing traffic issues. We need a wide shoulder to accommodate them.
Saturday, on our trip around Ontario, we encountered yet another group of people biking. I just wish they would drive single file. It is frightening to see oncoming cars.
My friend, Norah, reported on another fatality.
