A nice small Feed

One of the nice things about a small Feed is it limits the number of dead people I have to read about, and on a Sunday it’s even better because there are a bunch of lifestyle articles about bicycles so a small Feed means even fewer dead people.

They don’t have many roads in AK, but this guy got hit one one of them. Biker injured in Tudor accident From the pictures and the description it appears the rider may have been running a red light, or maybe the SUV was. But they blamed the bike for the wreck, anyway. So, don’t run red lights, if the light won’t change treat it like a stop sign and wait until traffic clears to ride through it.

Don’t ride drunk because even if you are in the right when you get hit you will be wrong… Bicyclist injured in car/bike collision The article doesn’t say what the mechanism of the wreck was, just that the cyclist was blamed because he was intoxicated. So, don’t drink and ride, or let anyone spill their beer on you while you eat. Smelling of an alcoholic beverage may make the wreck your fault.

A Nevada town can’t eliminate teen-agers but they can ban typical teen-age behavior. Silver City targets violators of skateboarding, bicycle ordinance Can’t ride your bike on the sidewalk, but it isn’t safe to ride it in the street. Hobson would be proud. And it isn’t legal to ride a skateboard in either venue.

The Beeb says there was a bike wreck and if the Beeb says it it has to be true. Cyclist badly hurt in hit-and-run So be looking for a black sports car that is missing a passenger side mirror…

Another RAAM story from the lifestyle section. Cyclists on 3,000-mile Race Across America to pass through lake area next week RAAM is fun to watch, but intermittent. Lots of waiting for a few minutes of excitement.

A guy a few years older than me rides a bike around Illinois. Challenges met, and just in time for birthday cake

And more on Governor Goodhair vetoing the safe passing bill. Governor slams door on cyclists I hope his hair asks for a divorce… 😉

And that’s all for today. It’s 93 Fahrenheit in the office right now, I would feel cooler riding my bike.
