Wow, what a Feed

Yep, the Feed today was, what’s the adjective? wimpy, ethereal, whispy, shallow? How about nearly non-existent after filtering for motorcyclists and bull riders? Lots of motorcyclists, a couple of bull riders and one link that was still live about bicyclists.

Up in Canada, a man in a bike lane was hit from behind by a distracted driver. Despite crash that killed Kitchener man, 43, expert says dedicated lanes are still safe In this case, the bike lane made no difference in the wreck, the driver was looking at the floor with his head under the dashboard, while in motion (I won’t say driving because he wasn’t driving, just sitting behind the steering wheel in a moving car). Hit-from-behind protocol applies here, but I don’t know if the actual bike lane in question actually had an escape route or if it was next to a line of parked cars.

And that’s all the Feed that was about bicycles.
