    I would like to re-emphasize the seemingly innocuous "puddle". be it winter or midsummer puddles can conceal a myriad of dangers.

    This past summer I had a rather serious crash at walking speed-...

    Other than the fact that it was a statement included in the page linked in the OP...

    ** quote pulled from another thread..

    Many times in these threads there is a great deal of advocacy for "cyclist education". Rather than simply dismissing these individuals as self destructive...

    I guess you've kind of answered what I just asked in the other thread I created to address this issue, which, for me, is a separate issue than the "come from behind issue" of the OP. If you don't...

    While I understand the desire to expand the definition to include some of the devices you mention, especially with regards making our streets and cities more people friendly and less auto centric, I...

    Looks like ILTB beat me to it but I will add a voice to the chorus. Yes, you are right I do have issues. I have issues with those who claim the moniker (self identify) as "cyclists" and presume to...
  7. Define: "BICYCLIST" or let's at least get clear on the concept!

    BICYCLIST: ??

    For me it's simple: A "bicyclist" is a person riding a bicycle.

    When I advocate for cycling I advocate for "people who ride bicycles" NOT for any exclusive subset, who may deem...
  8. Wow. In my previous post I reference an old...

    Wow. In my previous post I reference an old elitism I found intolerable in the old League of American WheelMEN.

    I guess it still exists when it comes to advocacy today. I prefer advocacy that...

    The quote below comes from the link in my original post. In a "rural" setting almost 4 times as many accidents occur at non-intersections but that only makes sense doesn't it?- I mean, fewer...
  10. I'm sorry but I have to take issue with this...

    I'm sorry but I have to take issue with this constant drumbeat of "maKing riding on the street seem more dangerous than it is."

    They are simply taking the means by which most cyclist/auto...
  11. Your 3.8% figure is based on some pretty...

    Your 3.8% figure is based on some pretty interesting statistical manipulations that significantly reduce the "odds" of a rear end collision. The overall figures include categories like the "weird",...

    Ah, I see. So only those of us actually concerned about getting killed on our bikes should worry about a rear end collision. That's cool. :rolleyes:
  13. Well, so much for that "irrational fear cyclists have of come from behind collisions"

    Safer Streets? Yes, Please! | Bicycling Magazine


    40% REAR END COLLISIONS.
  14. Well, good luck with that! Genec rides in the...

    Well, good luck with that!

    Genec rides in the San Diego area, where I am currently riding and I'll let him respond because he has more experience in this area. but actually it's surprising to me...

    (bold mine)


    I don't understand why you say you "could not disagree more" and then go on to say "cycling...should be much safer" and add the caveat of other nations with more strict lability and...
  16. I won't belabor my point any more than this but...

    I won't belabor my point any more than this but look at your post. Who are you quoting? The Phantom Copenhaginista? All I ask is if you "reply with quote" respond to what I wrote and if you add a...
  17. Actually, you did quote me. When you hit "reply...

    Actually, you did quote me. When you hit "reply with quote" what I have written appears as a "quote" in your post. I have no problem with that. My issue is that you then, in your response, put...
  18. #1...

    #1 ) Please tell me where I state that "taking the lane is risky most of the time(itals. mine)"?

    #2 ) There are so many variables at play in your statement: "that honda fit is far less likely to...

    Huh? "Interstate with semi-trucks inches from you"?? Are you supposedly quoting me there? Or are you extrapolating a meaning from what I wrote and applying it?

    I don't know what you weigh but a...

    Cool. You're back. Almost makes me want to come out of hiding myself. Hasn't been the same without you.

    Haven't visited in here for a while but got homesick for some New England bike ride stories- and you guys did not disappoint. Great pix!

    I am so far out of Metro Boston these days but will post a...

    The two cities I bike in the most are Boston and NYC. Though they share some similarities they are quite different. I find getting around NYC and Brooklyn a bit more fun than Boston. The...

    I couldn't agree with you more that this could happen anywhere.

    But Dot Pride aside, and I say this as someone who has ridden there a lot, worked there and knows plenty of people who live there...

    I would say this is an example of what to watch for in densely packed urban areas with poor infrastructure for every day traffic- which is not entirely unique to Boston or parts thereof but certainly...

    Hopefully, my previous post did not in any way add any fuel to the "blame the victim" fire.

    As you so kindly bolded (thank you) this bike rider did nothing wrong.

    The fact that they put it on...
