    I've been behind one. The first half anyway. He could hear me fine, called out "on your left" and he held his line while we passed him.

    I was kind of surprised to see a guy sitting up, no hands...

    They're grasping for that I think. I've never been there, but the percentages they state don't sound like a "bike city" to me either.

    But it sounds a lot friendlier to bicyclists than places that...
  3. I would guess a too close pass was involved,...

    I would guess a too close pass was involved, whether the cyclist swerved or not. You've got to swerve pretty fast to make up a few feet as a truck passes you at 45mph.

    No one is hysterical as far as I can tell.

    Now, about that shoulder. The picture I see doesn't show a shoulder. It shows a foot or so of space...
  5. Indeed. I really don't think there's good enough...

    Indeed. I really don't think there's good enough information to say what happened. I have my guesses, but there's so little information.

    The moral of the story is to equip your bike with a bomb...

    What? I'm not sure what you mean, exactly, by that statement, but I think law is supposed to be applied to everyone. Which I would see as fairness. There's even an amendment about equal protection...

    Is your cyclist 1' wide?

    6' 7" without mirrors, unless it's an oddly narrow year.

    Also, 6' 7" is closer to 7' ;).
  9. Closer to 7' with mirrors. If he were on the...

    Closer to 7' with mirrors. If he were on the edge of the shoulder his shoulder would be something like .5' into the lane. So, 7 + .5 + 3 = 10.5. It is indeed possible.

    So the rider either...

    Interesting. I hate when things say "shoulder" when referring to extra road to the right of the fog line. If it's not several feet wide it's not a shoulder. You couldn't pull a motorcycle over...

    Why does their age matter? People don't get worse at lying as they get older.

    The OP's point is absurd, but you kind of make it for him with some of your comments. Ride where you need to, but if the lane is so wide (as if these exist) that you can share it with plenty of...

    Is it really that hot in Baltimore? We'll get ~100 with high humidity, and it's miserable, and you can heatstroke doing strenuous things. But the worst that happens to me is I get tired and change...

    Not to my knowledge, I believe all gatorade has sugar. But there are salt tabs, and those shouldn't offer any significant source of food for small organisms.

    They probably stop in front of the wal-mart because that's the point of interest. If they stopped 10 minutes away that would be silly.

    I suspect that what's missing here is just a pedestrian...

    I agree, but that just reinforces my point. I don't think it's an unreasonable decision on her part. I think the city puts those transit users into an unreasonable situation.

    There are a lot of risks people take with their kids that, in large populations, result in deaths. Crossing the street, driving, living in a rural area, feeding them, feeding them nuts and peanuts,...

    SRAM. Shimano doesn't fit my hands very well. Too big and fat. That's not ergonomics it's a friggin' kitchen table.

    There are group rides that don't use pace lines? Boring!

    My wife expects and appreciates an honest answer there.

    I think people's relationships do vary quite a bit. Just like people do. It's taken me a long time to appreciate the fact that everyone is...

    The trouble is, when somebody loses on this it's the guy on the bike. And when this battle ends (if it ever does) it's not gonna be motorists being banned from roadways.

    So, I tend to be a little...

    The basic power people will use here is to say "ESPN, if you don't fire him I won't watch your programming." That's as close to "others have the right to choose not to associate with them" as it...

    But the spectator is at just one point in the road. If you spot that you'll assume it's a food or bottle hand off and not cheating. You'd have to have multiple spectators observe it at multiple...
