How To Pass A Cyclist

So today I ventured further down below the borough of Doylestown and did a nice loop (14.1 miles woohoo).

Share the road with cyclistsOn this ride, I noticed something that many of us cyclist have realized many times, not all drivers understand how to pass cyclists. It’s not that they’re trying to hurt us or be rude (well at least not most of them), many are just uneducated on how to pass correctly.

Here are some tips:

  • If you’re on a hill and behind a cyclist, BE PATIENT and wait until you can pass with a nice gap between you and the cyclist. You’ll probably get a friendly wave.
  • If you are unsure about passing a cyclist, take your time, BE PATIENT, and give space.
  • If you are following a group of cyclists 2×2 only pass if you think you can do it safely. It’s not just about the cyclists’ safety, but your own as well.

Over all BE PATIENT when passing a cyclist or group of cyclists. Share the road and BE SAFE.

Do you have any other tips for motorists and cyclists on getting along on the road? Post them in the comments.

Wordcamp Philly 2015 – What An Experience

wcphilly-volunteerAs I do every year, I attended (and volunteered at) Wordcamp Philly 2015. This year it was held at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. First off what an amazing facility and campus. I’ve never been there and I’m impressed with the space.

Wordcamp Philly was a two-day event, this year June 13-14. I only attended the main day on the 13th, but it was such a great event. I always loved the “barcamp-esqe” atmosphere, where it’s not too stuffy and everyone is there to help one another. Another great thing is that it was only $20 to attend, making it affordable for people of all walks of life who want to learn WordPress.

This was my first year volunteering and I’m glad I did. Though I didn’t sit through any session straight through, I feel as thought I got more out of it, because I picked up some great bits of info from sessions I might not have even attended otherwise.

If you get a chance to attend a Wordcamp next year, whether it be in Philly or elsewhere, I suggest you take advantage of the opportunity. You can learn more about this years Wordcamp and see the presenters slides by going to the website and looking at the #WCPhilly Hashtag on Twitter.
