    Who else will be at the next East Wesley ride (February 10) besides me? I don't want to be the only idiot out there freezing his fanny.

    The fates are conspiring against me whenever a East Wesley ride is planned. But due to previous commitments I won't be able to make it. But I think it is great that a number of the people who live on East Wesley are protesting the construction . Keep up the good work and I keep looking out for a ride I can attend.

    A number of residents in the E. Wesley Road area have these signs in their yards. MT is right. Many folks in that area DON'T like the idea of screwing up a perfectly good road.

    Here's a brief news clip from the Garden Hills Town Crier.

    The work on the East Wesley project was stopped for the second time last Friday by the Mayor, as the Atlanta Bicycle Campaign has continued its pressure to make the project accommodate bike lanes on East Wesley.
    On Saturday, the Civic Association received through Howard Shook a one-page sketch from the City Engineers that showed a redesign of one section of East Wesley that illustrated a possible compromise that would put two four-foot wide bike lanes on the street.


    Maybe these bike rides on East Wesley and the complaints of the residents are getting through to the city officials.

    Luckily I wasn't the only idiot at the East Wesley ride.
    It was a "warm" morning ~30F (windchill ~22F).
    I saw Josh and Tommy at the ride. Any other BF folks there that I didn't see or haven't met?

    This may be bad news for East Wesley and may be an indication of what will happen to many other roads and streets in the city of Atlanta.

    February 13, 2007

    Thank you very much for your concerns and interest during the development of this project. As you are aware, we have been working diligently to develop plans that take into consideration the expressed needs of the East Wesley community as well the needs of those who utilize this road for bicycling and other mobility purposes. However, we are of the opinion that the need to achieve aggressive traffic calming is paramount for the East Wesley corridor. Therefore, the department of Pubic Works will be implementing the construction of the project as originally designed. We remain sensitive to the need for alternative mobility throughout the city and propose an alternate route for those that choose to use bicycles to traverse between Peachtree and Piedmont along the East Wesley corridor.

    If you have any questions concerning the construction, please feel free to contact Greg Holder at ghholder@atlantaga.gov or (404) 330-6208.

    David E. Scott, P.E.
    Commissioner
    Department of Public Works
    City of Atlanta
    (404) 330-6240

    Nine people who live in the E. Wesley area have already emailed Commissioner Scott (in the last 6 minutes) about this decision. (I'm on their email list)

    Go ahead folks and rip him a new "you-know-what".

    Aggressive traffic calming my ass! Here's a progressive traffic calming plan for this city, how about writing a few speeding tickets. How hard would that be. (yes I've had a few beers tonight)

    It is awesome, I just need a good day off to really shake her down. Onto another subject, I have made arrangements with the Thinking Man Tavern for a viewing of the final stage of the Tour of California on their big screen projector. This will be on Feb 25 from 5-7pm, who wants to come?

    Sure thing, I'll post it on the website and mention it to the group.

    BTW, the new ITC website is up... http://intowntouring.googlepages.com

    It's still a work in progress, so this isn't an official announcement.

    Josh - is there an official notice for this? I can post it on the Sorella forum too.

    Edit: not a notice about your shake down of your bike, but for the Thinking Man Tavern event.

    Feel free to put the word out, lets see if we can turn the Thinking Man into a "biker bar".

    Hey! Good luck at the Tundra! We want a full report! Tip from last year: don't slow down to chat with the course marshals during the race. They really don't care where you bought your booties.

    Okay. I didn't fall. But, I did just give up and stop, put a foot down and picked up my bike to turn. Chatting with the guys at the turn the whole way. Came in DFL, but at least not a DNF.

    I'd rather have a million DFLs before a DNF or DNS...I got a 24:20, so I figure about a 23:50 if I don't fall, plus I was a little injured. I'm HOPING I can break sub 23 minutes
