    Doohickie spotted in FW

    My daughter had a few nights at Cook Childrens Hospital last week and this bike was parked in the garage.

    It's not his bike, but that's his picture in the spokes. How cool is that?

    If you're in the left line of a group ride, signaling a right turn with your right hand might smack a fellow rider in the face. That's the only time I use the old left-hand-right-turn signal.
