Bicycle Safety Presentation to Focus on Rider Safety Visibility at Bayside STEAM Academy in Imperial Beach on October 5

IMPERIAL BEACH, Calif — October 3, 2017— A special event and school assembly will bring together bicycle industry representatives and advocates in an effort to promote bicycle safety in an era of increasing distracted driving on Thursday, October 5 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. at the Bayside STEAM Academy, 490 Emery Street in Imperial Beach. The event will include a school assembly presentation featuring comments from Ed Clancy of Rider Safety Visibility (RSV) initiative; Danny Van Haute, manager of the P/B Maxxis Team Jelly Belly professional cycling team (based on SD County); Denise Mueller-Korenek, who set the women’s paced bicycle speed record last year; Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina, an avid cyclist and bicycle advocate; Bicycle Advocate and Attorney Michael Bomberger; and School Principal Kevin Coordt.

“There is a major push to use bicycles as a way to reduce car trips and improve our environment, at the same time these same cyclists, including children and their families, are interacting with traffic in an era of increasingly distracted drivers. Bicyclists all all ages today need highly effective and visible safety options to stack the deck in their favor in terms of being better seen during the day and night,” said Ed Clancy, RSV co-founder.

Clancy said that recently People of Bikes highlighted the number one factor in bicycle safety for riders of all ages was the advent of RSV technology, including LED helmets with integrated brake and turn signals; day and night time running lights (NiteRider); high visibility clothing and commuter bags that are effective at ensuring that bicyclists ride with increased safety and visibility.
