    We're also guilty of the pack mentality. I see bicyclists who become emboldened as soon as they get in a pack--lashing out at cars, blowing stop signs, getting into verbal altercations, because they...

    Awesome, thanks! Jake, the skinny brewer at Salem Ale Works last night wouldn't shut up about the Commons. His beers were very, very good too, so he clearly knows how to handle a rouser. Pretty cool...

    Why the rolling eyes? I hope your friend learned his lesson. I've been stuck behind several texting drivers at stoplights who had no idea that the light was green. And once, both of the drivers up...

    :roflmao2: Irvine is probably in the top-2 cities in Southern California as far as wide & plentiful bike lanes go. This'll be a piece of cake for them.
