I've lost the subject-verb agreement in your last statement. Who brought what on themselves? The dr. who is going to jail for passing and then causing an accident while injuring two cyclists OR the cyclists who were riding in a legal manner?

It was a fragmented thought. How one can lay any blame on the cyclists for such a violent act ("...riders do bring this on themselves") is absurd. Regardless of how the cyclists were riding, agg. assault with a vehicle is an egregious response.

Blair Bridge from the patio



tiredoleshadowguy

about 50/50 tar/dirt...2700 climb feet...and i wondered why the PBR tasted so good

I thought the first bridge looked familiar, then the Notch Road sign, but Blair Bridge confirmed it. Nice ride! Been 25 years since I did that one, glad to see the road connecting SN road to 175 at Wishman Hill is still open. I'll be there in a coupla weeks showing my kids Big Rock and all the other Mad River swimming holes.

Thanks - I think the punishment fit the crime and for the icing on the cake, I'm sure a civil action will quickly follow.

(I'm in Ahwatukee - have recently started riding the Saturday morning rides with the PMBC - if you're on any of these, look for me - a blue recumbent.)

Good deal - I'm taking a week off the bike and that ends Saturday. After that, I'm on Pecos and other parts of Ahwatukee from roughly 0430 to 0530 most morning at least until the heat breaks and I can ride after work. Hope to see you out - safe riding otherwise.

Thumbs down Some people take this stuff too seriously...



The text underneath says that he was inconsolable after losing the race because the cleat on his shoe came loose from the pedal.

don't wear purple stick with black

Plantation triathlete Molli Serrano was riding through Weston with more than 30 cyclists when a sheriff's deputy stopped them around dawn, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Serrano was the only one given a $65 ticket on March 6. Her offense: riding outside the bike lane a violation the deputy said was committed by most everyone in the group. Deputy Dominic Raimondi says Serrano got the ticket because she stood out in her purple outfit. He said there were so many cyclists, he had to choose one, so he chose to "fixate" on the woman in purple.

Serrano, a cancer survivor, wears purple to bring awareness to pancreatic cancer. The group left the bike lane to pass a slower rider which is allowed by state law, said her attorney, Jonathan Ewing. Serrano, a stay-at-home mom who rides 200 miles a week with the Weston Flyers, said she's contesting the ticket as a matter of principle.

I'm glad the cops are finally doing something about these lawless hooligans.

Completely off topic from the last few posts, but I forgot to mention this when it happened.

So, last week I was at my local trail for the first time feeling really good about myself for wanting to be in better shape and have fun doing it. Well, along comes this guy who is doing much better than me which is reasonable. However, he is pedaling kinda funny. I get to looking, and he only has ONE LEG! Riding a MTB!

Much respect to that guy

I know that feeling. My first year of cycling I thought I was doing good until a couple on mountain bikes and huge tires passed me up on the paved road while having a conversation. I was riding a carbon fiber road bike.

LOL! Wrong feeling. He was starting from the parking lot as I finished, I have no idea how fast he was. That said, he looked like he had been doing this for a long time, so I bet he would have been faster/more efficient than me.

I just meant that I really respected the guy for doing something he loved, even though the odds were against him.

dig it, yeah it was at that moment that I fully understood that it is indeed the rider, not the bike.

With only one leg, he'd certainly have a weight advantage.
