    I'm sure the forum overseers here will have a fit if I didn't state now that: a). this story is fiction and b). readers should never try these tricks at home. With all due respect forum moderators, this story was posted for mere entertainment, not suggestion- it's just that I can't resist any story where a bicyclist is the hero. While the first part is rather violent, the story shows the protagonist's dissatisfaction with violence as a solution to his problems in this fictional world. Oh, and it is written by Bob Fishell.
    Story
    Urban Cycling Vocabulary
    Foreplay The efforts of a cyclist to locate and trigger buried sensors under the pavement that will cause the traffic light at an intersection to turn green. Like the real thing, occasionally there is no result from this activity, despite most sincere efforts.
    High A lateral position on a street more toward the center line. I.E., If you look like you are leading a funeral procession of slow moving cars, you are probably positioned too "high."
