That's just sad...I was warned about the Gulf, and the South when I was on my Tour...Turns out to be a nationwide issue, despite that law. Glad he survived.

Highway deaths are up also according to the news. For the under 20-set, it's up something like 18-19% up.

Care to guess the root cause? I'm guessing it's cellphones and texting.

I counted about half-a-dozen or more incidents of people cycling up the street I live on while talking on their mobiles. Stupidest thing I've ever seen.

'Course, I live in the boonies (as WC can attest) so me riding down the road on my phone (txting in the last case) is less of a problem than someone in the 'hood.

This happened on a road I normally commute on. Watch for doors.

Bicyclists on phones are bad enough, but it's the scooter riders on phones here that really get me.

Since I ride at night and it has been epically cold the last month or so here in Los Angeles I haven't ridden in almost 2 months. Not even the rollers (which I rather despise.)

Decided to gofor a spin last night and it was windy in every directino I headed. Even downhill. My throat was burning the entire time. Only managed 22 odd miles... But it's a start.

It's warming up a little so I might start riding more.

Dood. You have NO bidness saying 'epically cold' and 'LA' in the same post.

*I* have no bidness saying 'epically cold' either for that matter. Not when there's AK inmates, IA inmates, and other people that actually DO live where its 'epically cold.'

HTFU Buttercup!*

I'm fixin to go do the Mt Weather loop. 3.5hrs of rolling hills with a fairly decent sized hill (I refuse to call it a mtn after living in CO and Sandy Eggo) in the middle. You may have heard of Mt Weather as the site for Congress' bunker. I'm not taking pics or stopping 'cause the security guards get awful jumpy when you do.

It may get to the mid-40s today. Mostly cloudy. ...so screw it! I'm dressing in a layer or two of wool and calling it good.

No "good" TV at the hotel.
Guess I'll have to just wait out my cold.
The Marriott, Residence Inn wifi is so lame I can't stream MotoGP except while sitting at the desk. And even then it stops and starts. This has been the case for all of this brand of hotel I've stayed in here, Everett and in Wichita. I plan to avoid these in the future. A week from now, I'll be moving back to the Hilton. Much better wifi.

Geez! Sounds rough, compared to the Corporate Lodging options I used to stay in.
