    To put a finer point on it: at least among some Americans, a bike is what you ride before you get your driver's license. Driving = adulthood. Though this has changed a great deal, and some young...

    Whoops. What I meant to say is you're legally required to hit a kid while moving. If you stop, you can't hit the kid. Clear now?

    No, it's okay, your sarcastic comment just made me think of a serious one. I have to take opportunities to be serious when I see them.

    Well, then, to get rid of that colon, we need some colon blow.

    Sure, but this discussion isn't about whether we should have mandatory stops, it's about what you or I should actually do when we encounter a schoolbus picking up kids. My motivation isn't to avoid...

    Just to be clear, there are different kinds of "electric bikes." There's a bike you pedal but has a motor to assist, which in order to pedal has to be fairly light and therefore have not much power -...

    How much torque does an e-bike have though? And does anyone ride an e-bike on an unpaved trail anyway? Kinda defeats the purpose.

    Arthritis starts at age 35!

    It's not just about cheating, it's about people with bad joints or other problems, caused by age or otherwise, staying on bikes instead of driving around and getting...

    Well, it's not just about killing kids. You can injure a kid. A small child hit by an adult cyclist going, say, 10-15 mph could easily be injured enough to send them to the hospital if they score a...

    Yet cyclists do hit pedestrians. In the case of a schoolbus, it's not the stupidity of the cyclist, but the stupidity of kids (very high). They run to catch the bus, or whatever, without looking....

    I kinda think of an e-bike the way I think of a motorized wheelchair vs. a hand-powered one. I don't think there's that much of a difference.

    Now, if you put a really powerful motor on a bike, or...

    Agree. I almost never shower after a commute these days. I think it's sweaty clothes that stink, not skin, and it's stale sweat, not fresh. So if you take off your bike clothes and towel off, it...
