The program features the Road Respect Bike Tour with 30 law enforcement, public safety, transportation and bicycle advocacy cycling groups biking 517 miles through the state. By demonstrating proper cycling behaviors on the road, the Road Respect Tour cyclists serve as positive examples for other cyclists and drivers with the aim of increasing respect among both groups.
