Tips for safely commuting by bike

I am sharing a modified presentation that I did some time ago for my old Toastmasters club in Ottawa.  I am passionate about active transportation and cycling in particular, and promote it as often as I can. This presentation is based on a blog post in Bicycling Magazine (hopefully it's okay that I used it and modified it a bit :S) set to one of my favourite songs by Queen (again, hopefully this isn't a copyright issue but I thought  the song was too perfect to pass up, we'll see if I have to take it down at a later date). 


  1. These are really helpful tips for my bike commuting! Thanks!

    Hi Megan,

    Healthline editors recently published their final list of the top obesity blogs on the web for 2013 and Verdant Nation made the list. You can find the complete list at (in no particular order). We encourage you to share your newfound status as one of the best blogs on the web with your friends, family, & followers.

    We also created a set of badges you can easily embed on your site & anywhere else you see fit:

    Please let me know if you have any questions.


    Warm Regards,

    Hi Megan,

    Healthline has just released their list of Best Weight Loss Apps for this year: Much like your blog, these apps were thoughtfully chosen by our editorial team. They were also medically reviewed by our in-house team. As a winner of our Best Blogs this year, we thought that you might be interested in sharing this list with your audience in hopes that they will find some of these apps useful. Thanks again for creating a wonderful resource for the Obesity community!
