    So, when driving, do you alter your route to avoid stop signs? There is some evidence that the legal status of Delaware stops impacts cyclist route choice - when its illegal riders are more likely...

    Good catch. But a 6ft sidewalk, instead of a 10 ft MUT. Though I think that is still wider than the existing sidewalk. The area adjacent to the new retaining wall by the health dept building looks...

    So what do you think of Le Col?

    It seems I now have a voucher for 50 pounds sterling for them (as do some other folks here, I gather). Never heard of them before. I am thinking of getting some leg warmers and similar.

    I rode the PBL west bound on the way home. Figured a Friday evening would be a particular challenge. Lots of pedestrians, if still not enough to render it unrideable for me. There was one cyclist...

    No way to reserve the bike, but the app still showed the bike at that location when I was right there, and after I walked away in frustration. So, no, that is not what happened.

    Momentum = mass * velocity right?

    So if a bike weighs say 35 lbs, with a rider weighing 165 lbs, and delawares the stop sign at 9MPH, that is 200*9 = 1800.

    That's a talmudic quibble. No one is proposing legalizing rolling stops for cars, as there is no particular problem it addresses.

    But if you want to suggest it, go ahead.
