    I've recently started doing Tai Chi at a local church. Proximity to others is greater than other destinations -- work especially. For this event I arrive early, change shirts, do a typical...

    Good point. The likelihood of fatality is a lot less. But you might be every bit as liable if something did happen.

    Yes exactly... no matter how short I get it cut, my hair does a nasty spike on the front.

    Several posters have recommended some gel product... would this really work?

    Actually.... to be quite honest... my current living arrangement is rather like a camping trip. I used to look forward to camping trips to get away by myself. But a few years ago, everyone left home,...

    That's a valid point. If I never wore a helmet, the state of my hair today would be the least of my concerns. In fact I would probably have no concerns right now.

    Helmet hair anyone?

    Because I ride everywhere I need to go, I often end up at some concert, class or other event and suddenly realize that my hair has gone rather vertical.

    To counter this, I now wear a cap under my...

    I use an Android phone to read. I use it to read on the bus or anywhere I have to wait. I rarely read at home these days... except for a paper edition of the New Yorker.

    Just wondering if there are others out there who volunteer at bicycle-related organizations.

    I've volunteered at the local bike collective since 2009. Over those years of recycling old bicycles...

    Glad to see you are involved as a volunteer. Volunteering is very much part of bicycle culture. We all like to work together to make things a little better.

    Yes... that's my guideline too and I try to avoid the high alcohol brews you often find with craft beer. If you can hold that line, riding is pretty pleasant w/o being dangerous.

    I'm pretty sure...

    Drinking and riding

    For some reason, this is a side effect of bicycle culture here.

    Lots of people are attracted to a recent phenomenon where bars are situated right off bike trails...

    Glad to hear you are Ok. But having half your town flooded is a total disaster. I recall a couple of bad floods here and life was a torture until the water subsided.

    Sidewalk riding is legal here if you proceed at less than 8 mph. However, the safety issue and nuisance to pedestrians still holds of course.

    I'm confused. If you slow down too much you'll eventually slow down and then fall down... at least that was my impression of fixed fear riding.
