Well I thought it would be fun to do a similar thing for cyclists So here it is: The Bike Code

I'm sR+!% bR/F/T rE/R/T/P raR4 ld+mi so++ vP21/C16 c+/ m++% bb+ rSH rFE/AL rPR rFG rGL i!, myself. Let me know if you have any suggestions on how to improve it!

Wow... you sure you're still not thinking in geek speak?

I can't read or interpret any of that goobedy gook, nor do I have any inclination to spend more than a quick scan to do so.

What kind of bike code doesn't have a category for leg shavers? Geeze! I'd think that would be the first cut? You need to work on this some more.

A hybrid, that was quite poorly suited for it, actually: suspension seatpost, for God's sake!

Now, it wasn't quite a thousand miles, but closer to that than to a mere century, so I'd thought I'd round it up a bit.

Trainer! I always thought the fuss about training was overrated...just ride to work every day.

sR/M+!...% bM/F0.5/T/2T/0.5T2/KT2/kkk/KKKKK/H/R/1U rE/R/T ld++ so+f/- vT14/C18/R12 c+/c/-/RAIN/BRRR m++%@ bb+ r?@ *SB gR/BP/>GH/AH/V+/DIY

Let's see...
F0.5 = fixie half completed
0.5T = trail-a-bike
2T = tandem
KT = child trailer
k = 12" kids bike
K = 16" kids bike
1U = Unicycle
so+f = like riding with my family
g category is proposed for gear.
R = Rack
BP = Backpack
>GH = I'm working on a generator hub
AH = Air horn
V+ = Visibility is important - reflective tape, LD1000 tail light etc. (as opposed to V+++ if you are mechbgon or V-- if you only wear black while riding at night)
DIY = Do it myself when fun and practical (as opposed to DIY--- = pay for a bike shop to change batteries or DIY+++ = light system noted below)

Better run this all by moxfyre for approval before adoption! After trying this, I think it would be a lot quicker just to have a conversation with someone eh!

I'll have the automatic encoder/decoder up soon... I swear I'm adding your additions tuolumne, and I'll be adding something about shaved legs too, to keep RG happy.
