The Seattle Times (I'd ignore this if I was you.)

When I was a kid I had a paper route, delivering the Seattle Times. How's that for a post that has nothing to do with 50+ cyclists? (Although sometimes I used my bike to deliver the papers.)

I had stuff thrown at me while cycling 35 years ago. 20 years ago someone sprayed me with a supersoaker. I haven't had anything thrown at me lately, but I was yelled at and flipped off this summer. Hence, the politics of cyclists versus hater/harrassers hasn't changed much over time. How's that for a statistic of dubious merit?

I love cycling and feel good about myself when I do it. That's my political rant.
