The Edmonton cyclists are really concerned about their safety on the city streets lately and are appealing for creation of more bike lanes in the city. The city cyclists are alarmingly worried especially after the serious collision that took place in Edmonton last Friday. Friday’s accident have set a cyclist to hospital with sever life-threatening injuries and this is what has deeply moved the other cyclists here as its summertime in the city and more and more people are out everyday on their cycles.
“As the cyclist, one is always aware that he is a vulnerable road-user”, stated Chris Chan, one of the members of a cycle advocacy group. According to Chan adding up more number of bike lanes would be beneficial for everybody on the city streets- no matter whether moving on 2 wheels or 4.
Marty Deslauriers, another regular city cyclist, reflected the opinion of Chan. In his words- “If you are riding in straight line (say along bike lane) & not actually weaving in & out of the parked cars, hugging the roadway edge, the drivers on the road would take you as simply another vehicle. This will make the case easier and simpler for everybody on the road”. Deslauriers mostly moves out on his cycle. He revealed that many a times he had the good luck to save himself from serious accidents but also feared that he mightn’t be this lucky every time.
“It’s really scary man”, expressed Deslauriers. “We would not ride on main road as cars are too speedy here. I wish for more number of bike lanes here. These should be on main streets as there is nowhere to bike on streets”.
Apart from the city cyclists, the city drivers too are worried about the riders’ safety and they too want to have more bike lanes. Carissa Hoy, one of the city drivers stressed that it’s really nerve-wracking to have riders weaving through the parked cars and traffic.04.3.13

On another hand, the same person is relatively criticized for being tested positive in doping tests. At present, Lance is facing a life time ban from participating in any cycling competitions which are recognized by the International Olympic Committee and International Cycling Federation.
Today, lance Armstrong has literally denied to cooperate with the United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA). As per this legendary cyclist from the United States of America, he has multiple issues with USADA which prevent him to cooperate with the official anti-doping agency in the country. However, Armstrong has expressed his readiness and willingness to continue with his cooperation with any other agency. Talking to the newsmen today, the attorney of this legendary cyclist told that Armstrong did not accept the charges which are brought against him. These charges contain issues which are never possible.
Both Lance Armstrong and his attorney have demanded setting up of an international tribunal which can take care of the doping case against them. The basic structure of this tribunal is still to be decided. However, it is quite understandable that the tribunal must be headed by a highly knowledgeable judge from International Court of Justice. They have reaffirmed their willingness towards faster proceeding to solve the case against them. Armstrong, the man with unparallel skill and courage believes in being positive against the serious amount of charges and has faith in the law and justice of his nation.
