The BCO hopes to 'grow' cycling and increase the safety of ALL road users by introducing bicycle driver education into our daily lives. For some instant education, please see this well-written paper on the 'Dilemmas of Bicycle Planning ' by MIT professor Paul Schimek. Scroll down to Dilemma #8 for his discussion of the importance of education. It is a paper no Planner should miss.
Bicycle Advocates tend to shy away from education, and push for more capital spending on bicycle infrastructure, as the effects are more tangible. The BCO recognizes the importance of effective, safe, connecting infrastructure for cyclists. We also recognize that cyclists who learn to follow the rules of the road will fare far better than the average cyclist. In fact, better than most automobile users.
