To the editor:
I have a seasonal vacation home in Holden Beach and we love to ride our bicycles, however, the friendly family beach is becoming the not-so-friendly family beach.
What is the matter with people who do not understand that bicycles have the right of traveling on the highway? We were almost blown off the road by a fishing rig that raced closely by us with screeching tires Labor Day weekend. They can wait two hours for a fish to bite; however, they do not have the patience to wait two minutes to ensure safety when passing bicycles.
We are encountering more and more of this each time we visit and ride our bicycles, and it’s mostly the local construction trucks and large fishing rigs that are impatient. It’s like they own the highway and bicycles are not allowed.
I hope this letter reaches out to those who are guilty and makes them aware of bicycle safety and ensure that Holden Beach maintains the reputation of being the friendly family beach.
