PETER WILBORN

South Carolina and Maryland bicycle crash lawyer and Bike Law founder Peter Wilborn has raced, toured, commuted, and ridden his bike daily for fun. In 1998, Peter had a bike tragedy in his own family, realized first hand the need for lawyers who understand cycling, and devoted his law practice to Bike Law. From the start, calls and referrals have come from friends in cycling clubs and bike shops and from advocates for better bicycling.

Read Bob Mionske's interview of Peter here.

Peter is a Life Member of the League of American Bicyclists and is a League Certified Bicycle Safety Instructor. For what it's worth, he is rated as an AV Preeminent Attorney (4.9 out of 5) and has received awards for his pro bono work from the South Carolina and American bar associations.

Peter regularly speaks to bicycle clubs, advocacy groups, and law enforcement personnel on bicycle safety and bicycle laws.  

He is especially interested in the etiquette and culture of cycling, and his article “The Lost Art of the Group Ride” has been read by over 75,000 riders.

He has also built a bicycle! 

And, as of October 2016, he will be the US distributor for Christiania Bikes, the original box cargo bike from Denmark.
