As a bicycle commuter, you expect to come across all sorts of hazards in your daily travels. So it came as no surprise to my family to find me outside, on the street with a broom in hand and a dustpan clutched at the ready. Ready to sweep up a long swath of broken glass in the bike lane.

As my cycling daughter pointed out, the new surface offers better grip for bicycle tires.
