The hard truth is that bicycles are still largely seen as a nuisance on the road. We’re on the margins—literally. Cyclists are reminded of this every time we get skimmed by a car. According to the World Health Organization, over half of international traffic deaths involve vulnerable road users such as cyclists. And because Americans are among the least avid cyclists in the world, they’re among the most likely to get killed by a car.
But I’ve discovered a life-saving device that allows cyclists to protect themselves and take back the road: the pool noodle.

John Neller - Boeing Employees Bicycle Club
June 8-11 from Portland to Eugene
Credit Card Tour
Space available for 2 riders from TWBC
If interested please continue reading.
Hello, my name is John Neller, and I am a member of the Boeing Employees Bicycle Club, living in Auburn WA. In addition to being a cyclist, I am also an enthusiastic train rider, and a member of Rail Passengers of America (RPA), a rail advocacy organization. As such I have often combined bicycle rides with trains, both in the US and abroad. I have found this to be a good combination of modes of transportation, allowing me to extend bike trips without having to ‘double back’, and to visit locations that would otherwise be too far apart to incorporate in a single bike trip.
