    Same etiquette rules as airplane seatmates. If friendly conversation isn't reciprocated just take it as a polite hint it's the other person's "me" time.

    I'm friendly and outgoing, but at times...

    I pass an elementary school and see a few regulars during the nights parts of the year. I think the simplest would be the '"half rear bike" that attaches by bar to the main bike making it a...

    If I have a choice I much prefer to find a dog loose or unleashed along side his owner than running all over a street or trail on a 20 foot extend-o-leash.

    I love dogs and have only had one...

    Definetely agree. But it's funny - I rarely run into bad behavior on my commute. I do a lot of two lane (each way) bike routed streets, and the occasional driver that does the "zoom around and...

    If someone harrasses me and I catch up to them at a light I have my phone out, circle them and take their photo/video ensuring I get their plates, faces and all car details. I do this and don't say a...

    I agree. Jerk is too much, and will have the affect of those wanting to ride and learn correct VC to forget it - lest they be labeled as so.

    I was driving and a lady on a bike was hogging, (err...

    eBay and deal hunting cuts down on a lot of that.

    I got an under the seat bag for $8 with shipping on eBay.

    Here's my general route,

    I've been playing with Google Maps Bike route in Denver - mapping my commute from downtown to Southeast Denver (and back)

    The problem with designated bike paths is that they're usually MUPs, which end up being populated by walkers, dogs, kids and rollerbladers. Again that's a problem for cyclists - When I walk I'm...

    I live in this area as well. 13th/14th can get busy during rush hour - it's a city street but used heavily during commute times.

    While it is three lanes I've found people get a little bit...

    Money. I like saving it and spending it on travel. Creates far more memories than an auto would.

    The health benefits are a great side effect.

    I've been to Amsterdam and I think the "shared space" concept is touted a bit too much.

    Smaller/quiter streets are of course easy to share with cars and scooters, but most busier streets have...

  18. Taxing vehicles (including bikes) based on weight.

    A common response to those to propose taxing cyclists for use of the roads is "Sure - go ahead and bill me for whatever use my 15 lb bike and 155 lb body incurs."

    ok at least that's my...

    I have an iPhone, which I love, and would never strap it to my bike.

    Maybe in a clear pouch inside a backpack to face backward, - but I wouldn't subject it to the elements and abuse.
