Bicyclists Begin 3,000-Mile Ride to Raise Awareness About Bicycle Accidents

October 13, 2012

Em Baker and her friends Nick Navarro and Lauren Gardner are uncommonly motivated bicyclists. They recently began a 3,000-mile bike journey across the country to raise awareness about bicycle accidents and how riders and vehicles can share the road safely and responsibly. They are riding from San Francisco, Ca., to Orlando and have charted a very ambitious course, literally and figuratively. Beginning in San Francisco, the trio will ride south to San Diego.

A recent bicycle accident that critically injured a Lakeland man on Lake Hollingsworth Drive has led to a series of planned safety improvements to protect bicyclists along the popular route.
