@Chris, it was probably someone who had accidentally turned off their GPS, rode awhile, and then turned it back on and you see the line streaking across to catch up. Or yeah, maybe an airplane too..
@avocadoinparadise: It could be, but that is very difficult to know. Our data does show that most trips are not chained together this way!
Whether you're on two feet, two wheels or four wheels, everyone needs to be a PAL to safely share the streets.
Being a PAL means being:
Predictable - travel in a predictable way; don't make sudden unexpected moves
Alert - pay attention to your surrounds and to others
Lawful - obey traffic laws, whether in a car, on a bike, or on foot
