Bicycle Law - National Help
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.
As urban density increases and renewed interest in cycling reaches unprecedented levels, it is an exciting time for bicycling in the United States. In many places though, the laws and the road access for cyclists have not kept up. Conflicts occur between bicyclists and motorists. Regardless of the cause of a crash, the outcome tends to be worse for the cyclist than the car.
Bicycle Law was founded by Bob Mionske with one goal: to help cyclists. Given Bob’s unique professional cycling background crossed over with his lawyering, he is regularly approached by attorneys (and cyclists directly) for input on bicycle collisions. Cause, effect, and liability.
Bob is licensed in Oregon and practices law through his firm, The Law Offices of Bob Mionske. Given his contacts in the national bicycling community and his expertise, Bob is happy to speak with you wherever you are located. If appropriate, he will associate local counsel on matters.
If you want to speak to us about a crash, your rights, or an advocacy matter, please call 866-VELOLAW (866-835-6529) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
