June is Bike Month! – Clips & Tips with Patrick Brown

McLeish Orlando and Bike Law Canada are kicking off Bike Month together and celebrating all things to do with bikes.

This month, we hope to encourage you to get out and ride, learn a new skill,  or have fun with your family and explore your cycling communities.  Of course, no matter where or how you ride, we want to make sure you are protected and know your rights to the road.  That is why we have teamed up with Bike Law Canada, and enlisted the help of McLeish Orlando Partner, Patrick Brown, to tell you everything you need to know about cycling and the law.

Over the next 30 days, we will be releasing helpful “clips and tips” on some of our most commonly asked cycling safety and legal questions – everything from how to fit a helmet to steps to take if you have a crash – McLeish Orlando and Bike Law have got you covered with everything you need to know.  Do you have a specific cycling legal question?  Don’t hesitate to contact us and we would be happy to speak with you.  We hope everyone has a great Bike Month, follow along with us on this page and on our social media channels, and as always, ride safe and ride proud.
