Saving the World with My Free Spirit and my Diamondback!

April 6, 2012

Rode to work...

And it was RAD!  My max speed was 31.7 mph.  How do I know this you ask?  Because my incredibly awesome hubs bought me a GARMIN!!!!  Now I have the same cool gadget as him (mine is actually way cooler) and can use Strava and be cool, just like the real cyclists ( : 

I noticed something today that I think needs to be addressed.  This is for the motorists who think that cyclists are taking up space on "your" road and who freak out at the sight of one of us and make dangerous moves.  You don't need to exaggeratedly swerve into oncoming lanes just to get around us.  All you need to do, is pay attention.  That's it!  Now, if you're in an unnecessarily large vehicle, like a Hummer or one of those pick-up truck with twelve wheels on your back axle, please try your best not to hug the bike lane... But everyone else, just paying attention is all we need you to do. 

That's my gripe for the day.  Well, that 10 minute hill... Nope, I'm gonna leave it at that.  No complaining! 

Happy Cycling! ( :
