It might be interesting. But don't forget that you'll be listening to propaganda being spewed by the lackeys of the bloated Prius-mongers!

I've always been sympathetic to critical mass. It's too bad violent idiots like this insist on undermining their own support.

Maybe a lesson can be gleaned from it. Being too self-righteous is...

Welcome aboard.

I suppose we could translate your screen name, roughly, as 'traveler01'?

We're glad you joined up.

And we're glad you discovered, or re-discovered, the joy of bicycling.

Well...it would seem to me that the math wouldn't be hard at all. But getting numbers to do the math with would be a pain. You'd need to know things like how much force you applied to your pedal for...

I'm not the one to recommend a bicycle or other equipment.

But as for riding your 35lb child, the answer is a definite "Yes". Of course you'll want to be more 'deliberate' in your movements and...

It Can Wait!

This post is not really meant as a rant. It does have an entirely different purpose. But I'll start with a mild rant simply for the fun of it.

I'm an AT&T DSL subscriber. I have been for about...

Here's one that bothers me.

A line of cars is coming up behind you. The first guy in line passes you properly. Fine.

But all of the rest of the cars are following each other too closely and...

As a matter of fact I have a brother-in-law who's a very definite roadie. We're on good terms. But I can only remember one time that we tried to ride together. That was 25 years or so ago.

Yes......

It just had to be that way, didn't it?

You can 'gauge' just where the water is falling and where it's not. But more often than not, it seems, it'll throw you a curve ball.

I also don't wear much bike specific clothes. I always carry a pair of padded leather finger-less gloves because I'd really like to wear them. It makes riding more comfortable and there's also the...

I'm thinking that your clothing is not waterproof. And I just know that I wouldn't be comfortable in a November rain without something sorta like flexible armor.
