COLUMBIA — In mid-November, the PedNet Coalition's Safe Routes to School coordinator Lawrence Simonson agreed to cycle along Broadway and Providence Road with video cameras attached to his helmet and bike's handlebar. In the video, Simonson demonstrates how to properly cycle along narrow streets with cars whizzing by.

Simonson, an avid cyclist, thinks Columbia is generally a safe place to cycle. He said that commuting cyclists can contribute to safer transportation environments by making themselves more visible to motorists and by adhering to traffic laws. PedNet teaches safety classes to help cyclists understand proper cycling etiquette and behavior.
