Salmon and Canaries


, , , , , , , ,

I posted the transcript of a conversation the other day. Me vs. a motorist. It’s not what you think. It went quite well. In this conversation, I noted the ignorance that exists among many people on bikes. Cyclists and motorists alike can easily become more than agitated when witnessing what is known as salmoning.

Salmoning is the act of riding a bike against traffic, facing the cars coming at you. It’s incredibly dangerous, but innumerable folks do it.

Elly Blue of Bicycling Magazine has something to say about it. It’s a great article. Please take the time to read it.
