Rules of the Road

Police Constable Hugh Smith takes CBC host Matt Galloway for a tour around downtown Toronto on a bicycle.

Matt is a cycling commuter that knows what he is doing on a bike, but he learned a great deal from one of Toronto's most knowledgeable bicycle officers.

This is an audio file that is just over 13 minutes long

Before the cycling advocates say, "Well no one would honk because he is a cop!" Hugh was wearing civilian clothes and was riding a civilian bicycle. This was a 40 minute ride on some of the busiest streets in the city core of Toronto.

Take a listen and see what you can take away from it. Chances are, you'll be a better rider for taking the time to learn something.
