This is a shameless attempt to save the the most advanced civilization in
history from imminent self destruction by eliminating carbon emission,
dependence on foreign sources of fuel,obesity, hypertension and diabetes.
Cycling accomplishes all those things at once and helps us develop a better
understanding of ourselves, each other and our relationship to the cosmos.

Oh, horse puckey!
I like to ride bikes, have been doing it all my life.
The rest of that crap is just a fringe benefit,
and the blogosphere gives me a chance to share my interior
monologue with virtual rather than imaginary friends.

I'm really not making this stuff up!

I'm travelling for a few days and can't get this tablet thingy to manage photos so I hope your imagination is active (no gratuitous pictures of girls on bikes). I actually thought that nut I ran into the other day was it. Today I'm in South Haven and found something stranger. I pulled up to a stop sign, the street terminated there and there was a right turn lane,a left turn lane and one lane for oncoming traffic, with me?
Ok, I'm gonna turn left, so I approach the intersection on the right side of the left turn lane. A car approaching from my right had stopped first, signaled a left turn so I yielded.
So, you got it right? After crossing the intersection he should turn left into the lane for oncoming traffic. He doesn't. Instead he makes a hard left, cutting through the right turn lane, behind me, through the left turn lane,across the double yellow warning stripes before entering the correct lane in the middle of the block.
He didn't look drunk, seemed to just make that decision. I got nothin'. Baby strollers walking dogs while texting on the MUP make more sense.
