    First ride back from vacation. Boy it was hot. Supposed to get up in the 90s today. I'm not looking forward to sitting next to cars belching hot air from air conditioners.

    Another nice ride in. Much cooler today, but a stiff headwind still made me sweat.

    On a related side-note: glueless patches are worthless.

    Every so often someone "rediscovers" this faulty design. I can easily see pedestrian collisions, right hooks, and jams caused by bikes waiting to "turn" left.

    Leaving aside the red light jumping, it seems there are two schools of thought:

    #1 . Don't re-pass unless the road is accommodating (cars can pass safely without waiting for an opening). Pull into...

    Not commuting related, but a groundhog has decided to take up residence in my vegetable garden (inside the fence - who knew they could climb?). I filled in his hole (which he wasn't too happy about)...

    @dru_ - according to him, the bicyclist was treating the red lights as yield signs, proceeding through when clear (illegal in every state including Idaho). It was this behavior that directly caused...

    It's definitely an improvement from the previous incarnation of that road and should get more people out on bikes. But in the end, it is just paint, and nothing is stopping a distracted motorist from...

    It's interesting to read all of the opinions on this. To provide further detail, while my co-worker isn't a cyclist himself, he makes every effort to pass safely. He was not gunning it to get the...

    Ouch!

    I bet the driver won't underestimate a bicycle's speed next time. Looks like a classic left cross.

    As far as how a cyclist can prepare for this...make yourself look wider by swerving left...

    He said that the cyclist should have pulled into the line of cars when the light changed instead of filtering up on the right side. This is what I do as well, unless the filtering can be done without...

    Already 75F when I came in this morning. Forecast to hit 90F this afternoon, chance of isolated t-storms.

    Already a bit hot this morning. 64F with 78% humidity and no wind. I'm going to be extremely sweaty coming home if temperatures hit the forecast 88F.

    Got a bit wet on the way home yesterday, but still a good ride.

    No ride in today because I forgot to do laundry. I'd probably clear out the office if I wore the same bike clothes again.

    Got a little damp on the ride in. Heavy showers expected on the ride home; I might need to affix some pontoons to the bike.

    OP - I'm glad that you're getting back out on the roads. It would be very hard to overcome fear after being in a serious collision.

    Your reasoning was sound, but the driver behind didn't interpret...

    Too bad she didn't hit the truck.

    Another very humid ride in for me. We did gain two more fair-weather bike commuters at work. Maybe they'll start seriously thinking of adding showers.

    I like the change, especially the "traveling...at less than the normal speed of traffic" provision. Hopefully other states adopt similar language.

    That is horrible. I'd rather be on the road than ride in a bike lane like that.
