Frank J Cassella

Owner, Golden Bear Bikes

Gearage Outdoor Sports

“In the past 15 years, myself and many of my friends have stopped or reduced our road riding and commuting by bike with traffic in our local because of the dangers of being on the road. I do personally believe that a good portion of the fear comes from the knowledge that there are a lot of distracted drivers on the road. I’ve heard from friends and customers so many times that, “it’s just not worth the risk”. Obviously, this is not a scenario we should be complacent with. It should be as safe as is possible to ride a bike in a lawful manner with traffic. For that reason, Reeb Cycles and The Bike Shop at Cyclhops are happy to support a national initiative by Bike Blue to end distracted driving.”
