As if this blog did not have enough scary things linked, I found something truly terrifying while I was just wandering around my usual haunts on the Net about the place I live. Someone Has Died on Texas Roads Every Day for 13 Years and 13-plus years since day with no Texas road deaths That’s right the last day that nobody died on a Texas street or road was before I got hit by the
insane homicidal maniac drunk and stupid truck driver.
Up first is a salmon ninja cyclist severely injured in the most deadliest state in the US to walk or ride a bike. Cyclist seriously injured in Pinellas Park crash Everyone knows I bend over backwards to give a cyclist the benefit of the doubt about the narrative, but really there was so much wrong in this one that even I have to call the victim stupid on this one. None of my regular readers would have any problems avoiding this wreck as I’m sure all of you have lights and ride with the flow of traffic either in bike lanes where available or taking primary where you need to. Even so infrastructure would have prevented this wreck.
Lifestyle from CA. Claremont Mourns and Honors Cyclist Killed in Crash
Continuing on the theme from the opening paragraph… Overall traffic deaths are down in Oz, but people not protected by light armored vehicles are dying at an increased pace. Almost 10,000 NSW drivers caught speeding And buried in all that verbiage is the news that the number of people killed riding bicycles doubled last year, with significant increases in pedestrian and motorcycle deaths. Once again as in the UK we see that cars are getting safer while drivers are getting worse (fewer killed inside cars with more getting killed outside them).
And if you’re in CO and want to watch someone build a bike while you have tacos and a cervesa you now have a place to go do that. Jason Rogers, the man behind the food at Oskar Blues, talks tacos and Cyclhops I’m wondering if both sides are expected to be profitable or if one is supposed to subsidize the other. But food and bikes is a natural pairing, because one definition of a cyclist is an eating machine with/on wheels. 😉
And those are all the links about bicycles I could find today, forget giving me fits.
