Why Bikers Are Safer To Be With Traffic Instead of Going Against It

Bikes usually go much faster than someone on foot. While the speed of a person walking is roughly 3mph, a byciclist can zip along at 15+ mph. If a car's coming in the opposite direction at a higher speed than that, there's far less response time if the bike weaves into the lane of traffic than there would be if both were traveling in the same direction. So, it's wise to go with the flow.
