    It's sad that he died, but it seems he was actively seeking his Darwin Award.

    I don't use lights in the daytime unless it's foggy or rainy. I've gotten comments that my hi-viz vest is visible for a mile out, so lights wouldn't add anything except extra battery charges.

    That was a fun video to watch. I wish cell phone use while driving was banned here in PA. The best they could get through was banning typing on a mobile device while the vehicle is in motion. So it's...

    Upper 40s today with gusty winds in the forecast for this afternoon. I took a small detour on the way to work to drop off some urine samples at the veterinarian's office and pick up some arthritis...

    I wouldn't leave my bike parked anywhere for a week that wasn't inside of a locked buiding.

    Mostly 35-45mph arterials, with some 25mph neighborhood streets mixed in. I've ridden on 55mph multi-lane arterials, but it's very stressful.

    I haven't needed any serious repairs. My LBS charges $60 for a "basic tune-up" (lubing everything up, adjusting cables, etc.) and $75 for three years of unlimited basic tune-ups.

    Foggy this morning so I had my lights going. It's amazing the number of gray cars that drive in fog without their lights on. Further proof that people just don't think.

    I'd ride in the right tire track and watch my mirror for cars. Unless traffic was light, I'd find other roads to ride on. Narrow + 50mph != fun ride.

    Slight headwind, but other than that a very enjoyable commute. Lower 40s, cloudy skies.

    My bike is feeling very slow the past week or two. I think it needs a good washing.

    Since helmet use is not compulsory in most (all?) states, I don't see a problem with this. If non-riders see ads without helmets, they may start changing their opinion on how dangerous bicycling is.

    Nice brisk ride in this morning. Very gloomy looking outside, but they say the clouds should start breaking up by this evening.

    I don't notice a change in driver behavior this time of year. It's when school starts up in September that the drivers get crazy again. They stay crazy until the weather warms up in May.

    I'm the same. I rode home in snow once. It was simultaneously fun and scary. I almost went down in front of a car, and my eyelashes had half an inch of ice on them when I reached home.

    Got to ride home in some light snow last night. Drove in this morning due to an inch on the ground and gusty conditions. I really need to get a snow bike.

    Forecast was for snow, but I said screw the weatherman (after the forecasted downpour and ice turned into a light drizzle yesterday). Rode in with a 20-30mph headwind, but temps in the low 40s. Good...

    We'll get there eventually, at least in the bigger cities. More bicyclists on the road will lead to more public support for them. The number of drivers who actually want to cause harm is very small.

    Really wishing I had ridden today. They were calling for ice in the morning and heavy rain all day. It was drizzling when I came in and it's currently cloudy with no precipitation. :bang:

    Good to see. Magnatom usually is really picky about driver behavior and seems to enjoy the confrontations, but on that occasion the van driver deserved what he got.

    Yeah, Facebook pulled it down because of the homosexual hate speech (which violates their terms of service), not bicycle hating.

    Mid 20s when I left the house. Rode into a rare northeasterly wind this morning. It's probably the wind that's bringing the storm in late tonight. Forecasters are saying it will be all rain for us,...

    PatrickGSR94 - I wonder if they were looking for a street and weren't sure how close it was. That might explain why they were hesitant to pass.
