CLEARWATER, Fla., Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Personal injury law firm Roman & Gaynor is proud to announce that in 2014, for the second consecutive year, they will be sponsoring the Edinburgh Cyclocross Challenge in Dunedin, Florida. Last year's Edinburgh Cyclocross Challenge was held on September 21st and 22nd at Highlander Park.
"Cyclocross and Roman & Gaynor have joined together to bring safety and awareness about sharing the road so that both cyclists and drivers arrive home to their families safely," said Tampa Bay Cyclocross promoter Zach Fout. "Together we can help bring awareness to everyone that it's both the responsibility of cyclists and drivers to follow the laws of the road."
Men, women and children of all ages compete in Cyclocross either using a Cyclocross bike, which looks like a road bike with wider tires that resemble mountain bike tread, or a mountain bike. The competitors encounter grass, sand, dirt, mud and different obstacles that require dismounting off the bike and then remounting back on the bike. Cyclocross is regarded as a family and spectator-friendly sport.
"At Roman & Gaynor, we are committed to strengthening driving safety laws and spreading the 'Share the Road' message," stated Attorney Mark Roman. "Cyclists face danger every day as they share the roads with distracted drivers. We are honored to support the cycling community by sponsoring local and state cycling events because these events are a great platform to spread the word that you must focus on the road in front of you while driving."
Roman & Gaynor's passion for cycling together with their goal of spreading safety awareness is what drives the firm to sponsor events such as the Edinburgh Cyclocross Challenge. Roman & Gaynor has also teamed up with Gearlink Racing and sponsored the annual Florida State Criterium Championships.
"As avid cyclists ourselves, Morgan [Gaynor] and I understand the dangers of distracted drivers and are committed to doing our part to help keep our roads safer," added Mr. Roman.
