    My commute is 52 miles, round trip.

    I wouldn't mind living about 10 or 12 miles closer to work.

    Absolutely. Best to ignore them, but some folks tune in to watch their antics. Heck, El Diablo (or whatever the French word for devil) guy at TdF has been sponsored for years.

    It's what happens AFTER the red light changes to green that keeps me from hanging around to give thirty extra distracted motorists a free shot at me. If I run the light I get to operate in a nice...

    I'm not sure what you're getting at. Where there's a bike lane, I use it. I've ridden in cities with more bicycle infrastructure and it is fine. For myself, I'm quite pleased with the routes I ride...

    They also repealed the ordinance that made it illegal to ride with no hands. I had forgotten about that one being on the books. I've been an occasional skofflaw for all these years. :)
