Older riders proving more likely to be in bicycle accidents

While bicycles have long been a preferred form of transportation for the younger crowd, recent years have seen a significant rise in the number of older riders.

The fact that riding a bicycle is easier on the joints than most other aerobic exercises is certainly a bonus.

Walking has benefits, but pedestrians face dangers

Even with all of the modes of transportation available, such as cars, cabs and buses, much of the time the best way to get around is under the power of one's own feet.

And pedestrians should be lauded, as walking is a completely carbon monoxide-free form of transportation.

How do I pick a safe walking route?

You may walk for fun or you may walk out of necessity, but in either case you want to walk safely. So, when choosing a walking route, be it to a school, park or any other neighborhood location, you may want to scout the area out. This is especially true when you are picking out a route that your child will walk on his or her own.
