North Carolina lawyer and Bike Law founder Ann Groninger's motivations for focusing her practice on bicycle cases are selfish ones. She rides her bike for transportation and recreation and wants to be able to do it safely. Ann also believes that improving North Carolina bicycle safety will encourage more people to ride, which makes communities better places to live. By enforcing the rights of cyclists who get hit, she’s helping to prevent the next crash. Ann represents cyclists in Asheville, Raleigh, Durham, Greenville, Wilmington, Fayetteville, and throughout the State.
Recently Ann wrote the Ride Guide. The Ride Guide is a comprehensive look at NC General Statutes and how they apply to NC cyclists. Ann has made the Ride Guide available to everyone without cost. Simply click on the link above to download a complete copy.
