Think of it as tax equalization. You're not using as much gas and aren't paying your share of the road tax. I'm waiting to see how they tax pure electric vehicles. Maybe they'll have to get odometer inspections when they get their yearly tags.

I've got a very flat hour-long loop at 'recovery day' speeds that y'all would probably do fine on.

I'm heading up to SW Va for the Mountains of Misery. I aborted last years double metric attempt at 86 miles, 11k' of climbing due to a knee injury. I'm signed up for "just" the Century this year. Looks like a great time!

In my book 'hill' is a 4-letter word.

Have a great time!

Even the pros aren't immune

Nor does it seem to be an American thing.

Hope this isn't 205

Cyclists hogging the whole lane!!!
































The bicycle lane/non thru traffic portion of the road that is. Scoot to the 2:35 mark. I hope they got the tag number off the video and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Apparantly, the driver was arrested.
Oakland police found the vehicle Friday morning and alerted the Berkeley Police Department. Berkeley police examined the vehicle and a further investigation led them to Jack London Inn, located at 444 Embarcadero West, in Oakland, as a possible home for Medaglia.

Officers contacted him late Friday afternoon at the inn. He was arrested on suspicion of possession of heroin, felon in possession of ammunition, violation of probation and felony hit-and-run.

The riders, both of whom were wearing helmets, had abrasions from hitting the road but did not require hospitalization, according to Greenwood.

Looked like the lead rider almost had a colonoscopy with the cars mirror.

The lady in the silver Subaru was a no-show on the road today.

No overt assholism, cause for the most part, we were out far enough (and riding against what little traffic there was) to avoid most people.

Got a few waves and a few honks (good honks) too.

I stopped by my local shop today to see if any of my components came in for the Venge today but no luck.

I did however complete 19.54 miles on the Mtn bike so all in all it was a GREAT day!

Important hint for all y'all:

If you're driving at us cyclists (from either direction) and honk, we don't particularly give a rat's ass.

...but its an especially big 'fail' if you're honking coming at us.
