For all the bicyclists crossing Canada this summer, please be careful on the road and always be aware of your surroundings. If you have a bicycle that is low to the ground, such as a recumbent, make sure you have a bright flag that is high above your bike. You want to be seen on the road by the many vehicles that will pass you.
