    Something similar happened during the Tour de France a few years ago. During the final spring on one of the stages, a rider went down and split his head open. His blood was pumping so fast that he died within minutes.

    Boo. Riding along niagra some turd in a bread delivery van almost killed me a couple times. I am riding next to the parked cars and he drives up so close my whole body cleans off the side of his van. There was a stop sign immediately ahead so I got in front of his van and started yelling at him. He starts yelling back non-sensical barely-english garbage saying I should ride closer to the cars get off the road etc. So I get back on my bike and keep riding, and he was just about to do the exact same thing, so I just took the whole lane and kept moving left and right to keep him behind me. Eventually he jumps up onto the sidewalk and narrowly passes me on my left. I have his license plate number and the bakery that he works for. I only had the plate number but a lady that was driving behind us told me the name of the bakery which was nice of her.

    Don't buy bread from Olympia bakery.

    As I was riding in this morning I witnessed the idiocy of 2 cab drivers crashing into each other in the middle of an intersection. I could not contain my glee as I stopped and watched the 2 drivers yell at each other. Was it wrong to be happy in the misfortune of others?

    I was gonna say Silversteins but the Olympia guys are bad too. It is a sad state of affairs when you hear of something like this and get a flashback of your own experiences with similar road users. But hey...at least the restaurant/bistro got fresh warm bread...no stinkin tree hugging cyclist will stop me from my daily rounds...kind of like mailmen.

    Nasty. I'm pretty sure I almost hit one of those olympia dudes in the summer as he was unloading/delivering. Now I sort of wish I had

    except that you usually see a lot of mailmen on bikes, toting their 50lbs of letter which always amazes me.

    speaking of narrow misses, i saw a guy on the weekend try to pass a street car that was going so fast he went through an intersection then came within milimeteres of hitting some pedestrians crossing on the other side; they actually had to jump out of the way. i couldn't believe how fast this guy was going. it's times like these that i remember what my dad said when i was 16 and asked why i couldn't just drive any time i wanted: "becuase it's not a car that you're getting into, it's a 3000lb guided missile. it's like driving a loaded ***".

    Two days ago I tightened up the slack on my chain.
    Now whenever I skip I can feel the cog loosening.
    Does wearing happen over time? eg. thread slack?
    Or do I just need to re-tighten my lockring?
    These are Miche hubs.

    Get that tightened ASAP before you strip it out! ride really hard and fast towards the bike store and then jump off the bike or use a brake or something to slow down so you don't apply any backforce to the cog, then get keith to go at it with a lockring wrench like a gorilla.

    It was a weird weekend. I didn't wear my helmet for a long ride, something I don't do more out of habit than anything else and I can barely count the number of times I was crowded over, almost doored, blatantly cutoff by five cars in a row and barely missed some stealth meat pylons.... Maybe someone is trying to tell me something.

    Without explaining my situation at all, I have determined that Olympia bakery apparently does not have a manager and the owner does not have a phone number. If I do not recieve satisfaction I may just have to go after work and let the air out of their tires to keep them from jumping up and down off the sidewalk.

    I am full on loving those new crosswalk countdown timers!!!!! Takes all the guesswork out of hitting the intersection at steam. I imagine it'l make life alot easier even more so for the leg brakin' crowd in our midst.

    Is that that sort of dull beeping I am hearing all the time now? Or do you mean the chirping and bells thing at some of the majors?

    yeah, those timers are sweet, I hope they start putting them up outside of the downtown core too.

    underneath all the walking signal lights downtown there's now timers that count down until the light turns red.

    They are sweet. Though on a sociological level I find it somewhat disturbing that the onus is on the ped to get across the street on time. I mean if the light is green when you step out..... how long could it possibly take someone to cross? Even factoring in the elderly, I still think it's the drivers' responsibility not to mow people down....even if their path is somewhat obstructed. What if masses of peds carried air Zounds and blasted a motorist when they sat in a crosswalk or were trying to turn right through an intersection without waiting for it to clear in the same fashion cagers blast horns at everyone in their path? I wonder if they even know how disconcerting it is, because I don't think they know how loud it actually is outside the car. While it's a cool feature for us cyclists, I think it'll just fuel the cagers' sense of rightful dominance on the roadways. For me though the ped will always be allowed to walk in front of my car.
