Interesting search results, and some bicycle articles, The Feed

Well, if the search strings used to find articles are any indication, there will be a lot of witches using Cat Stevens in their full moon rits tonight 😉 Not a lot of bike related stuff in the Feed, mostly infrastructure articles.

More reports on the MN rider killed crossing a road, still nothing about traffic controls or what the cyclist was doing, which usually means the driver was at fault because the MSM loves to tell us when the cyclist is at fault. Bike rider killed in Blaine while crossing street and Bicyclist Killed In Blaine for the lawyer take on the wreck.

More on the trial of the thing that walks like a man with a medical degree. Cyclists have a lot riding on L.A. driver’s trial I don’t see what other cyclists do has any bearing on what the thing that walks like a man with a medical degree did to these particular cyclists. If cyclists in general are on trial here, why not all drivers as well?

And other places are trying to figure out what to do about finding a cyclist in front of you on a road. Bicycles, cars need to share the road The thing that is missing from all these articles is the fact that “Share the Road” doesn’t mean for bicycles to get the hell out of the way. It means that drivers should pass safely when they come up on a cyclist that is riding slower than they are driving.

And to wind up the post, a really cool, if not very useful, bicycle. Eco Bikes: Cadillac bicycle gets half the looks of a car and full bicycle functions I wonder if it comes in pink?

And as short as it was, that’s all I have for you today.
