Bike Rights

As the number of cyclists in St. Louis grows, Trailnet continues to raise awareness for this growing sector of the population. Its abundant calendar of events includes Trailnet on Tap, a speaker series. This week's installment takes place at Urban Eats Cafe (3301 Meramec Street; 314-558-7580 or www.urbaneatscafe.com), with guest speaker attorney Karie Casey. Casey presents valuable information on the rights of cyclists and what to do when an accident takes place, and when, for instance, it is appropriate to get the police involved. Important for any cyclist, from the casual rider to the daily commuter, this free legal advice (first time you've ever seen that phrase, right?) is given from 7 to 8:30 p.m. So pull up a chair, eat a pastry (you'll work it off on the ride home), and be glad that the next time an angry driver tries to run you off the road, you'll know exactly what to do.
