Road Rights



Nearly two months ago, I announced that, following my final Legally Speaking column, I would continue to write about the fight for cyclists’ rights in a new column for Bicycling magazine.

I am pleased to announce that my new column—Road Rights—is finally here. The first online edition of Road Rights, a column about the new commuter tax benefit, was posted on March 19th; the online column will run bimonthly. The first print Road Rights column will be in the May edition of Bicycling, appearing on newsstands April 7th.

After VeloNews, The Road Ahead



As I noted in my most recent Legally Speaking column, I first became acquainted with VeloNews as a young, aspiring racer. I still remember the excitement of seeing my name in the results section a few years later. Over the years, I occasionally submitted articles, such as a a race journal, or cold-weather riding tips. A few years after graduating from law school, I approached then-online editor Charles Pelkey about writing a bicycle law column for VeloNews. He agreed, and Legally Speaking was born. Over the years, the column has grown from an occasional legal column into a regular vehicle for advancing the cause of cyclists' rights. The column would not be the success it is without the contributions and interest of an incredibly committed readership. Following on the success of the column, Charles suggested that I write a book on bicycle law, and with Rick Bernardi's help and the guidance of VeloPress, Bicycling & the Law became a reality--the first book for cyclists on their rights and responsibilities since the publication of The Rights and Liabilities of Wheelmen in 1895.

Thus, it is with mixed feelings that I announced that today's  column will be my final Legally Speaking column for VeloNews.
