Davis was my "token" double. I'm pretty much done with those. But it was a great ride and I'm glad I did it (even though I could barely walk the next day). If you're thinking about doing a double,...

No; the problem is that christ0ph revived a nearly year-old thread (date of the OP is 11-11-10), and the original article from the same day is now archived. It's available, but you have to pay for a...

You don't say (and I'm not going to guess) what qualifies as dangerous or boring for you, but I would suggest trying Google Maps bicycling directions. There are lots of different ways you could get...

Knee warmers, mostly, but I just got some bib knickers which I'm looking forward to using. I have leg warmers but never use them; if it's cold enough for full leg warmers, it's probably time for...

This is a false (and dangerous) assumption. Another law merely gives lawyers more to argue about. Laws don't make cyclists any safer; behaviors do.

In the case of this particular law and its...

While I generally favor things that "support" cycling and aim to improve safety of cyclists, I do not support this law. I think it is unenforceable as written, and will only lead to more, not less...

You may be missing the point.

I don't dispute that motorists (and pedestrians, and crawlers) can, as individuals, also engage in a variety of behaviors, some nice, some not—idiotic behavior is by...

I totally respect that, your honesty, and your desire to rise above the fray. I probably *shouldn't* think about those things, but it's hard not to. Thanks for posting this.

Definitely.

The behavior of this group is not "like motorists". Like *some* motorists, maybe. But not a semi-organized group of motorists who announce plans to engage in this behavior monthly....

Yeah, lots of these pro cyclists are pretty good with wording that sounds like a denial but isn't really. In the Yahoo! article there's this:
