    I would have needed a break after that to recover from an hysterical laughter induced oxygen debt.

    My commute used to be a forty mile trip in mostly along a two-lane highway with very little traffic at the time of morning I rode (2:30-4:30 AM). There were always a couple of drunks heading in from...

    When the terrorist in the pink/red car next tailgates you on a descent, which tire do you want to have go flat, the front or the rear? Prathman gave you the answer.

    My wife plays a banjo and is considering bringing it along with us next month as we ride down the West Coast. I guess we're going to have the campgrounds to ourselves.

    I'm not sure how to put this delicately, but you don't know what you're talking about. Sub-prime loans were precisely the loans that lenders were NOT required to make to any "portion of the public". ...

    Gee, and they gave him that nice contra-flow lane there next to the median.:eek:
  7. If you want to go the law enforcement route, then...

    If you want to go the law enforcement route, then you're going to have to prepare that field. The Lane County Sheriff's Department, while flush with new jail funding, is still light on patrol funds....

    Geographic features can create predictable wind changes both in direction (eddy-effects) and in time-of-day directions, and the west has these features in abundance. I generally take advantage of...

    Jan's got a bit of an agenda there. The article he references that reviews various studies comes to the solid conclusion that there isn't much evidence that target fixation, or the moth-effect, is...

    When I briefly moved to Lubbock, TX in the '90s, I had a conversation with a salesman from whom I was purchasing a couple hundred grand of equipment regarding the local housing market. I was...

    Does that mean the locals' aim is very good or very bad?

    Did you also find that some of those too-close-for-comfort passes weren't really all that close?

    Since this thread is destined for P&R anyway, I might as well take this one on.

    You must be young. The college debt issue is not due to hordes of families failing to plan for reasonable college...

    I forgot about those nutty MHL's they have in WA. Although they are written to apply to all cyclists on their roads, I wonder if they could withstand court scrutiny for nonresidents. It may be tough...

    I guess I'm lucky. I usually manage to find the humor in the situation. I'm also more than a little arrogant, so I pity them for their poor behavior.

    I have ridden after motorists to chat them up...

    If the video is to be believed, there are all sorts of different rules and regulations for riding bikes that vary by community. Other than which sidewalks one may ride upon, which people really...

    Maybe his currently disdainful attitude towards his local police is the result of several interactions in which he gave them the benefit of the doubt and then some. Of course I'm blowing smoke and so...

    The most common, and most likely to lead to injury, error I see on the part of new cyclists (and we have a lot of them around here) is riding too far to the right. If you can get people to understand...

    Is distracted driving the greatest threat? Not to go all ILTB, and I do consider it to be a substantial problem, but has anyone generated any reasonable estimates of the carnage it is causing? I...

    Not all miles are created equally. Do you prefer flatland rides? Stick to Salem for that. We've got some gentle hills around Eugene, but our best stuff starts fifteen miles out of town and gets MUCH...

    I live in the bum capital of the nation. Okay, maybe not the capital, but we do have about ten times the ratio of homeless/housed as the national average and they all seem to pass by my house daily...

    This is basic stuff. If the lane is not wide enough for a motorist to safely pass a cyclist while staying in the lane, then the cyclist should not invite such a pass by gutter-hugging. A substandard...

    Attempts at such bans do crop up from time to time. The one in Colorado was struck down last year. There is an attempt in Misery going on right now. I don't think there is as much citizen support for...

    Twenty feet of asphalt for two lanes and a double yellow center stripe meant that the road had nine and one-half foot wide lanes. I was descending at about thirty-five mph with another cyclist in...
