2 down, 7 to go

You can tell the riding season has started. I had a 15-minute ride home from work and in that span of time two people tried to kill me.

The first one pulled out on the right hand side right in front of me. Luckily the lane to my left is open and I swerved and missed. I stayed in the left lane and not even five minutes later some other lady went from the right-hand Lane all the way to the left hand turn lane slamming her Brakes in front of me causing me to darn near lock them up but at least she waved and said she was sorry. I wonder if that's what she would have said to my kids at my funeral.

Be careful out there. Always be on the lookout. And please, if you haven't, take the BMR course. Your behind will thank you.

Ok..I was NOT home-schooled, but that is neither hear nor their.

Ya gotta love those non-self induced adrenaline rushes!

I had someone on the fourlane (no median) the other day cross from their side, into my left lane, then a bit in my right lane, went to the shoulder on my right, then looked like they were going to swerve right back into my lane.
It just turned out to be a very unothodoxed way to make a left.

I really only like pooping when I want to.

We are in the middle of a major interstate reconstruction. Somewhere around 10 years now. There are new drivers that don't even know what it was before and way too many people have had enough, and think they have the right to do whatever it takes to cause our area to be a dangerous place to ride cycles. I'm still waiting for an outcome of a hit and run on me 3 years ago, I don't need another one to follow.

It's getting so that you have to ride with spare underwear.
