    The Foothill killer plea deal is nine years in the state pen (he might be able to see his dad there). Somehow bragging about reckless driving in social media wasn't a wise move.

    Sounds like maybe he wanted to sober up before turning himself in.
  3. This competitiveness is all kind of stupid...

    This competitiveness is all kind of stupid because one doesn't know which rider has ridden further (or harder) at the point of contact. For all one knows the individual you're going to pass on King's...

    I have noticed that much cycling clothes/equipment has reflective material that I don't even expect was built in. For instance my SIDI Megas and Mavic helmet have this quality. I think the reflective...

    I agree with Dunbar on the traffic island creating a hazard--too often things get done to our roads w/o considering possible effect on cyclists...

    I guess I don't need to wonder about where DiabloScott's heart will be buried or ashes spread someday in the distant future...

    The thing that's so unbelievable to me that if he'd stayed retired after 2005, none of this would have come to light. Some people just can't quit when they're ahead--a lesson not to get too greedy.

    I like the HW9 descent a lot when there are no trailing cars but hate it when there is traffic behind me. I probably ride in more aggresively than I otherwise would in attempt to stay in front of...

    If you consider Santa Cruz part of the Bay Area the Bonny Doon descent from Empire Grade was a blast (I haven't done it in 19 years--the pavement quality was very smooth then, but I don't know about...

    Wow, I read in the Merc about a couple of middle aged guys from the UK in Yosemite who had trained for a El Cap climb and probably have to return home disappointed. Sounds like you're in a similar...

    Let's hope there's now some movement in the case. Usually the kind of people who are willing to run from an accident have the friends they deserve--i.e., friends willing to turn them in for $10K.

    I'm with Carfree's analysis of the video. If it was me on the bike I would had been furious that someone would have been willing at a minimum to scare me witless rather than pausing for five seconds...
  13. I've watched the video of the left turning car...

    I've watched the video of the left turning car about 10 times now. It's almost impossible for me to understand this. Is the driver's brain programed to stop, turn head left, look for "car" or...

    CFO at Amazon during its IPO. A uber-wealthy woman who sounded very accomplished and balanced it other ways. Why is it that the people who die like this so often seem like such impressive and...

    Ok, I usually roll in the high 30s on that part of Skyline. At those speeds you're so vulnerable--I think it would take at least a quarter mile to safely stop a bike. Since that part of the road I...

    I can't really understand what happened from the article. Is there a better written story somewhere?

    I consider the stretch between the King's stop sign and Tripp as the most hazardous part of the whole descent because of potential left turning autos (and some bicyclists) from King's onto Tripp....

    The area of repairs starting at Manuella only goes no more than about 1/4 mile, it's very nice, but my hope really is that the new payment will eventually (and soon) be extended all the way to the...
  19. I think what's happened the past 20 years or so...

    I think what's happened the past 20 years or so is that pretty decent bikes have been commoditized. In 1987 I spent $2,000 to get a good bike and in 2011 I spent $2,000 to get a good bike (one frame...

    Good story as at 41 he's the oldest man to win a GT. Impressive since he suffered a concussion in the TdF as well as a serious blood clot in his leg. For you climbing wanna bees, I read that he's...

    An insurance company will "take care" of a repair but then try to collect from the other party involved in the accident. In a auto on auto claim the insurance company will invoice the other party's...

    If the matter is with a collection agency right now aren't you leaving out some details? (In fact, how could it even go to any agency?) What documentation did she give you for the initial claim? You...

    Perhaps the repaving goes from Manuella past Tripp to at least the King's-Entrance Way "Y" intersection (the Stop sign on the King's descent).

    This sounds good to me, I was feeling that...

    I don't mess around with tires. I probably toss them too fast if anything like a moderate tear or imperfection (like baseball umpires with balls). Even if it tweaks my "green" karma, my feeling is...

    There a line from "Tom Thumb's Blues" that goes: Don't put on any airs when you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue, because the cops don't need you, and man they expect the same.
