Founded in 2000 by Olympian, national champion and former professional racer Bob Mionske, Bicycle Law provides legal resources for cyclists. Whether it is bicycle safety, what to do after a crash, or how to protect your rights, Bicycle Law has the resources cyclists need.
We ride. We know the joy of traveling off the beaten path, of urban exploration, of commutes we treasure instead of dread. We’ve felt wind in our face and wiped road grit from our eyes. But we’ve also felt the brush of the rear view mirror from the driver – inattentively or intentionally – blasting by too close.
We’ve gone down. We know what it feels like when bones crunch, when surgeons need plates and screws to put us back together. The tediously slow healing process when all we want is to spin the pedals, ride our normal commute, and explore again.
We’ve gotten up. Up to ride, to fight for cycling rights, and to help others in need.
We are Bicycle Law. Let us help you.
