Behind you!

Posted on Thu, Aug 20, 2009 at 10:05 AM

This is a curious question I have based on my observations of bicyclists this summer. Why is it that cyclists never look behind them while riding? I understand that if bikes have mirrors, they may as well add an engine too. But why have I yet to see a cyclist look behind them? As a motorcyclist, I keep an eye on my mirrors and look over my shoulder when I'm moving over. I would think this would be appropriate for cyclists as the physics are essentially the same on these 2 vehicles, but alas, not so.

Is there something I'm missing? Cyclists, please shed some light on this before one of you ends up on the pavement.
