    I've never had a cell phone, so no. But if I did I'd have no reason to use it while driving or riding.

    One of my coworkers recently got a bike and started riding. He lives near me and started asking questions about commuting to work. One day this past week he had his wife drop him and his bike off at...

    Sure there are. I ride in an area where taking the lane is rare... cyclists must never impede/upset the almighty motorists seems to be the mindset. When people see or hear how I ride they often tell...

    Lower traffic volume can make any road more comfortable. You might want to look for that.

    I too would try both options several times. I find it very invigorating riding with traffic... and...

    Bright socks/shoes, leg bands, pedal reflectors... along with the aforementioned assertive lane position. The sooner drivers detect pedal action, the sooner they KNOW you aren't going 50 mph. And the...

    And I enjoy reading everyone's legal opinions and practical suggestions. No "problems". It's nice to hear what others do in, or think about, certain situations.

    I think of this more as opening a...

    My question wasn't "what is legal", as I know the laws… and what I'm presently doing is legal. And while following the law is not my ultimate concern here, it certainly does factor.

    Sometimes I do...
  8. Nice Wide Shoulder, turns into Right Turn Only Lane(s).

    So I've been using the right main traffic lane instead. There are three lanes in each direction, 50+mph traffic. It's been going well, drivers change lanes or slow down as required, no real issues....

    Does anti social motorist behavior contribute to the impression that they too don't deserve consideration or respect in terms of their right to share the network of roads? Seemingly it does not.

    Isn't the giving the finger considered an acceptable, or at least tolerable, form of communication in some area's? (Usually high density metropolitan area's)

    You flip someone off, they flip back,...

    Better still, how often does a cyclist who didn't stop and confront a driver get shot?

    Seriously. Flip off all the drivers you want. As long as you keep moving and take measures to keep your...

    Never. I think the person giving the finger almost always looks like a bigger ass than the person he's giving it to. I don't want to be that person.

    I have no experience with that bike, but I will say the frame is quite elegant. I also like the red.

    Function and fit is of course important, but I also have to love the "look" of my bike... and...

    I want the couch potato's who eat junk food to pledge to not use insurance when they get ill because of their choices. That'll save us lots more than your plan to make helmetless riders pay more.

    Like you, I also used to try to avoid the night rides on my commute. Then, after riding it a few times with proper lights and reflective gear, I found this:

    So silly to be arguing which vehicle can brake faster. Better to practice and discuss techniques which reduce the need for maximum braking in the first place. If you're counting on a maximum braking...

    "Chicagoans, would you pay $25 Registration Fee?"

    No, because it will never happen.

    Honest question: Why not have a mirror extension on an angle, or a convex spot mirror, to cover some (or all) of that blind spot where you're just relying "primarily on judgement"?

    If you had signaled he may have just thought of something else to yell at you for. Using the law as a reason (inaccurately) just made him feel more justified.

    Another appropriate term for certain frequent posters would be "recreational internet forum confrontationist". To each their own when it comes to what's fun I suppose!

    Some? How many is some? Every other guy? One in a million? Got any statistics or studies to back up this claim? Or is this assertion just based on conventional wisdom? ;) :lol:
