Thumbs up Were you riding on Hewett at 6:30 4/25/13?

This is a long shot, but...

You: riding peacefully along with a child on a trail-a-bike, WB on Hewett Blvd. Thursday, 4/25/13 at 6:30 pm., making me envious.

I've been trying to think of a way to mount my computer so it shows up in the corner of the frame when my camera is running. The way I have my camera mounted now, I can see my brifters at the edges...

Terwilliger & Condor

That notorious Terwiliger & Condor intersection is really only a problem if you are northbound on Terw. in the bike lane. The angle at which Condor intersects makes it hard for drivers entering...

I thought I picked up on several questions that seemed to hint at wanting answers specific to off-street "bike paths". I wish I could remember all my responses, but in the comment area I recall...

Another prime example of the kind of "separated infrastructure" we DON'T need. Granted, I live nowhere near here so what do I care, but from your description it sounds like the typical sub-par "bike...

Question Panniers grinding away racks (and frame!)

Has anybody else had a problem with Ortlieb (or similar) panniers grinding away your rack? I noticed mine were actually grinding away my frame and rear derailleur cable housing as well as the rack! I...

Heh, indeed. I've caught myself citing ORS by number on occasion--but my jacket is "pewter". You left out fixie-riding, skinny-jeans hipsters flipping off drivers while cruising through red lights...

obliged?

I don't think "obliged" is the right word to use here. Police always have discretion concerning which infractions they will cite and which ones they will overlook. It may indeed be a "bad" move to...

Angry Impatience + mode bias

Sorry, I just have to rant a little today due to the fact that I had three separate drivers who felt the need to drive fully into the oncoming lane to pass me this morning. Not that that's bad,...

similar gauntlet out west

I thought the old adage was "two wrongs don't make a right...but three lefts do!"

I have a similar stretch on my way home: Cornell road between Murray and 143rd. Only instead of side streets,...

Thumbs down Not an improvement

This is what happens when we attempt to put motor vehicle throughput above all other roadway concerns and/or attempt to placate/appease impatient motorists.

I do NOT like these "permissive left",...

You can even see in the sample pic that there is a van in the bike lane. Did he sneak in somewhere and pull up to his delivery point via the bike lane? Is he just turning the corner? Either way, he...

woo-hoo!

Rock Creek Blvd. is a great way to get from points west (174th/Laidlaw) over to the Rock Creek Trail and Cornelius Pass Rd., but this signal has always been a problem. I used to think that the signal...

There is no legal obligation to do this. According to most, including law enforcement, bicyclists are "obligated" only to stay out of the way of drivers. And to stop at stop signs. Ask most anyone...

With no witnesses, your story will not be believed, while the driver's will be entered in the police report as fact. Rest assured that the cop believes with all his heart that you are an idiot. You...
