As most bicycling happens on neighborhood streets, Hugh encourages bicyclists to stay safe and obey all traffic signs and laws the same as an automobile.

            Hugh also reminds vehicle drivers to keep an eye out for bicyclists year-round, as America has an average of approximately 2 million active bicyclists on the road each year.
