Bikes be careful!!
All of our biking buddies be careful out there, almost saw a guy get greased by a minivan tonight *shudder* he did some good evasive driving and was able to stay on his wheels.If you're not aware our country is full of and run by morons, you're probably one of them.
When a politician says he's fighting for the soul of our country, think of it like the devil saying he's got a deal for you if you just sign on the line.

I don't know how you guys do it, way too many zombies and unconscious drivers out there bumbling around. Be safe.

I bike for exercise and don't like tangling with cars. I used to live near miles of service roads along "concrete rivers" and other bike paths. Now I live near 2 state parks so I got a mt. bike and only have to avoid trees.

I thought there was still too much sand on the road for bikes?If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. ---Samuel Adams

This goes both ways, don't be dumb out there on your bike either. 9-10 my big ol work van isn't gonna stop fast enough and I'm going to fair much better than you will.

Yeah it works both ways,I watched a kid on a rice rocked try and pass 3 cars on a solid yellow and almost got killed by the car coming the other way.
Unless you ride all year round and just about every day and only mode of transportation is a bike.. pedal or otherwise ...you are a "cager" too.

I almost got taken out 3 times in a half mile, by the same minivan!
This happened a couple of weeks ago. The last time she actually bumped my rear fender when I stopped to take a left. I jumped off the bike and Daddy (I guess) got out of the minivan and started to get in my face.
Good thing a cop just got off from a detail and stopped when he did. I was in an "Old School" frame of mind..."Liberals are not like most Americans. They are the biggest pussies on Earth, city-bred weaklings who didn't play a sport and have never been in a fight in their entire lives. Their mothers made excuses for them when they threw tantrums and spent way too much time praising them during toilet training."-Ann Coulter
