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.

Feeling Safe?

   I thought I would share this link to the NY Times Op Ed pages.  A biker locked his bike in several locations throughout NYC and used different methods to "steal" it while in plain view.  He used a hacksaw, a pry bar, bolt cutters and an electric grinder at different locations.  Despite  pedestrians passing constantly, he was never confronted or questioned by anybody until a cop "busted" him on the fourth attempt.

It's really pretty disturbing that nobody brought it to an officer's attention.
