    Default Cyclist on Van Dorn Street on my AM ride to work

    Wears a White Kask Mojito, all black, no blinkies, no reflective gear. Rides a RB with clip on aero bars. He makes a R on Eisenhower Ave. Anybody know this cyclist?

    Why? Are you thinking of getting him some reflective gear?

    More important, can you ask him to ride on the King Street Bike Lane on lordofthemark's behalf?

    I just might give him a taillight yes but everybody is on Van Dorn. Dump trucks, 18 wheelers and this cyclist is on it like it was a quiet country road with NO SAFETY LIGHTS on. Forget the laws, COMMON SENSE plays a big role here. Makes cyclists look like idiots for those motorists that are around this guy at that moment.

    I only see him from time to time. I use the pedestrian lane on Van Dorn. Hes on the road then he makes a R on Eisenhower. I go straight. He rides down Van Dorn alongside those dump trucks and 18 wheelers. Not sure if he has no common sense or hes Clark Kent. Maybe no common sense.

    Before I saw the mention of a right turn on Eisenhower I thought OP was talking about the Van Dorn bike lanes and I got really excited. So disappointed.

    Also I thought a mojito was some kind of drink.

    You would be correct. A mojito is a mulled-mint cocktail originating from the island 90 miles south of Key West. Perhaps the rider made a Cuban very unhappy at the bar, but how the OP could know this, I can only make up a story about.
