Bike Law Partners with Cycliq

Cycling Safety and Celebration in Tandem

November 1, 2019: Daylight Savings ends this Sunday, November 3rd, and we are counting down to fewer day time hours and the most dangerous time of year to ride a bike in the U.S. With approximately 65% of all crashes occurring in low light conditions, and the number of fatal crashes at a 30 year high, Bike Law National and Cycliq announce their official partnership, as two organizations in the forefront of bike safety come together to marshal resources and improve riding conditions.

Bike Law is committed to being North America’s comprehensive cycling resource.  Bike Law’s mission-driven Legal Network of independent law firms and its non-profit Foundation are dedicated to the pursuit of cycling justice, and the cultivation of an inclusive, sustainable, and celebrated bike culture.

Cycliq is revolutionizing bicycle safety with video camera-light technology; their devices are identified as “non-negotiable” by bike advocates, cyclist, law enforcement, and the Bike Law Legal Network. Recording each ride gives riders peace of mind: long run time, daytime running lights, audio and video, Incident Mode, smart video looping, “Home Safe” mode, disruptive flash patterns, and built-tough weather-proof units engender a sense of security in all riding conditions. 

Both organizations recognize the significance of Distracted Driving and the impact this epidemic has on the current crash crisis. The Cycliq devices being used around the world (and by the Bike Law Network and its Foundation’s Ambassadors) are proven to drastically improve the outcome of legal disputes for cyclists who suffer the indignities of a crash. Irrefutable video evidence is a game-changer in the frustrating and often times disadvantaged process when cyclists (and their attorneys) are confronted with the burden to prove what actually occurred after being brake-checked, coal-rolled, punishment-passed, or hit by reckless, negligent, and distracted motorists.

Bike Law’s attorneys and advocates have spent the last 21 years representing the needs and best interests of North America’s bicycle community. Cycliq is instrumental in improving the unbalanced cultural and legal conditions for people on bikes, providing an ace up the sleeve for the underdog. The jobs of the Bike Law lawyers, as well as those of law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, and juries, are nuanced and difficult enough without contending with a car culture that identifies people on bikes as second-class citizens. Cycliq’s products provide a sense of security for cyclists that not only increases the likelihood of a more-desired outcome when reporting a crash or disputing the circumstances of one, but also open the door to something equally as important: a way to video document the joy, freedom, accomplishment, and fellowship that comes with riding a bike.

The exclusive partnership between these two organizations is exciting to share as both Bike Law National and Cycliq come together to make the world a better, safer, more honest place to cycle, while capturing all the beauty of riding a bike.

[Photo of Arthur and Candy Carter] There is uncontainable outrage when we learn of a catastrophic or fatal crash involving members of our community. One of the reasons is that of all the mortality rates, and especially amongst those involving motor vehicles, cycling and pedestrian fatalities are the only two that continue to increase. The […]

My first tip should have been the text I received from my father-in-law. He was looking for suggestions on bikes that he and my mother-in-law could get and ride. They’ve had bikes before but those were left to succumb to the salt air and rust, abandoned outdoors right next to the best intentions to ride […]

We all need some space.  In these strange times when a unique virus has shuttered my city, Chicago, and many others around the world, one of the more precious commodities is space, particularly outdoor space.  Yesterday, Chicago experienced one of those sunny, warm(ish) days that we always seem to get in March where throngs of […]

For any questions about the State’s bike laws, or about your rights to the road, contact Minnesota bicycle crash attorney Daniel Brazil directly. Right to […]
