    I ride that same route and will do so again today. We need a campaign to alert motorists of cyclists and the 3 foot law when passing a cyclist. Perhaps some bike route road signs on Water Well, Burma, Crawford, Country Club, Magnolia, Kipp, and Simpson roads. Cycling is a popular form of exercise and cyclists have a right to use the road.
