    I RODE A BIKE!

    20175

    Not a long ride. It was tiring and my right foot is the one I push off with, so having that leg still weak from surgery and months of not being used makes it tough. But I...

    That is the ugliest dog you've ever posted, rcannon100.

    Non-biking update: Gremlin 2 got whacked in the face with a soccer ball again. Teeth seem fine.

    Recovery update: I WALKED TODAY! Not very far, but this is the first time since March 8th that I've walked without crutches or a boot. It's an exciting day. I'm probably 3-4 weeks out from starting...

    Now you're making me miss Dave and extended arguments with someone I largely agree with.
  7. First, yes, absolutely. Second, though, it's...

    First, yes, absolutely.

    Second, though, it's much more complicated. Speed cameras and automated ticketing can't be attached to a driver - just a car. So automated enforcement penalties can only be...

    Wherever Dave is, I hope he's laughing at the ghost bike they're going to put up for his ghost bike.

    I sent another letter to the Mayor, my councilmember, and the at-large councilmembers, asking...

    Melbourne is an absolutely lovely city with tons of bike infrastructure and no hills. It suffers greatly from the state's mandatory helmet law, however. The bike path that follows the Yarra River...

    Sorry, not a stupid question at all. Leading Pedestrian Interval. It's when the pedestrians get the walk signal before cars get the green - gives pedestrians (and in DC, cyclists) time to get out in...

    I love it. The ridiculous $5000 super-niche bikes of today inspire the more reasonable bikes of tomorrow. And really, unless you live in a flat world, riding a fixie is finding the middle ground...

    Bikes go on the LPI, including Barnes Dance. Cyclists should go walking speed and yield to pedestrians.

    I hear you. But I fear that the people with real political power won't be hit hard by this, while those who have very little could have their lives destroyed.

    Before we do this, we have to increase public transportation so that people who lose licenses have other options. In dense areas you can survive without a license. In suburbs and beyond, you can't.

    DSalovesh. He hadn't been active here in a while.

    For many of us in the DC bike community, this was the last straw. Dave was a tireless advocate and a good friend. Local advocates have been begging for a road diet exactly where he was killed for...

    Saw on Twitter claims that bystanders said the driver was doing 70MPH when they blew a red light and hit the cyclist. Stayed on the scene, so that should be maybe a $100 fine.

    For future reference - if you do a lot of walking in your bike shoes, the Giro Rumble VR might be the greatest shoes ever made. The soles aren't as firm as serious road shoes, so they're not a good...

    At least with Shimano, the brake bleed kit is something most people should be able to use successfully. The process is a little weird - it helps to have a friend who's done it - but it's not terribly...

    A whole new brake? Sounds like your shop doesn't know much about hydraulic brakes.

    Yes, this happens to me whenever i change the rear pads on the longtail. It's really tough to do without flipping...

    I got a reply from Brianne Nadeau (Ward 1), though I suspect that's because she already knows me from our talks on Safe Accommodations.

    I can't be bothered if no one knows how to spell.

    The family and I will be in Dinant (in hopes of finding where this French last name came from even though my grandfather's family was British for generations) then Brussels for a few days this summer...

    Recovery going well. Next Thursday I expect to be weight-bearing in a boot. Then another 6-8 weeks and I can walk unassisted.
