I just thought, since we are fair folk (and we all drive sometimes), that I would like to mention that probably 99% of the drivers I deal with (except that they still can't read a speed limit sign, something I have been able to do since I was about 5 yrs. old) are careful and courteous to me when I'm riding that strange two-wheeled thing. (Is he really serious, out here with us on the actual street?)
You know, with the comments I used to get at work (You don't ride all the way; You should stay off the street; You've lost too much weight; Cycling causes prostate cancer), I know they are really envious.
I'm going to give them a good reason to change.
