So anyway... I have a t-shirt with block letters on the back that read POLICE. Since I've been wearing that, I've enjoyed a much wider berth on the road. Life is good and I'm not doing anything...

I did consider the fact that there are some people who have severe disdain for the police - but I figured the hatred and disrespect for police was much, much less than that of cyclists.

No disrespect intended but your police friend was wrong. However, if you claim to be a police officer, you can be in legal trouble. A T-shirt saying ANYTHING is protected by the 1st Amendment.

I bought a new t-shirt that reads POLICE on the back

It's black with white block lettering. People give me a wider berth on the road. No more close calls with sideview mirrors. Eleven rides so far, all between 20 and 50 miles. Funny how that works....

101.33 miles yesterday. My knees are killing me today. I rode from Downriver Detroit down to Ohio and back. I was nearly hit by one of those crazy idiots driving a gravel truck near Point Mouille....

Knee Pain will be the end of me

Over the past couple of months I've read everything I could find on post ride knee pain. I deduced quite easily that I suffer from iliotibial band syndrome. I've tried adjusting my foot position on...

72.27 miles this morning. I rolled out of the driveway at 1:30 AM and made it back home by 7:30 AM. The wind was bit bothersome heading down to South Monroe but was quite welcome on the return trip....

Back to my old routine - 45 miles to start off the day. I need to reconnoiter a few new routes though. No one had anything decent in the downriver area on mapmyride.com. I'll keep hunting. I'd...

Patience and continuous challenges - that's the ticket. Pick a more difficult route, ride it for a week then pick a harder one. Repeat as necessary.

52 miles this morning. Dogs were barking madly and chasing after me in four different places along the route. Fortunately I ride faster than they run. One was a pit bull. That was a bit unnerving.

If I don't get in at least 100 miles per week, I feel like a slug. And hey, today is only Tuesday and I've already met that goal. Maybe I'll hit 200. :)

I love riding my bike. Nothing else...

You have to be crazy or just flat out stupid to ride a bike on 287. That's tantamount to pedaling down the interstate. I ride past that area almost daily. I take a short 1/8th mile hop along the...

I wear sunglasses made to protect firearms enthusiasts. I also wear clear shooting glasses on night rides. One close call is all it took for me to wear them religiously.

I dig having eyesight.
