Surfin Surfari


I am leaving town for the third weekend in a row. It's all part of my informal gas price research project. This time I am off to Jax, to hang with my bro's (the real sibling kind) and maybe get some waves. I will try to put up some pictures, for Magnum to criticize, when I get back. I am also planning a mtb run at Hanna if the waves falter and I am still able to pronounce my name after a day in the water.

I am sad I will miss the best weekend of the year, to be a Tallahassee cyclist. Hopefully Juancho, Worm and all their crews will drink up, and race up, the slack for me.

Remember while your riding this weekend, that person not behind you, that is not talking all time, is..... me!

Ta Ta sport fans!

Is that like, "If the phone doesn't ring then you know that it's me?"
Have fun.

I think you and Magnum are very cute together.

HWB - I saw this on Craig's list and thought of you switching from roadies to MTBs.

Probably a good move.

>>>Another cyclist was KILLED last night in our great city of Albuquerque. I don't know all the details, but he was a 40 something commuter on his way home from work when he was stuck ON THE ARROYO BIKE PATH crossing Commanche. The motorist drove away and returned to the scene 30 minutes later. The exact circumstances are unknown.
CYCLISTS: YOU SHOULD BE OUTRAGED!!! THIS ACCIDENT HAPPENED ON WHAT IS CONSIDERED TO BE ABOUT AS SAFE A PLACE AS THERE IS IN ABQ - IT COULD HAVE BEEN ANY ONE OF US, OUR FAMILY, OR OUR FRIENDS.
STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS! BE MAD AND BE ADVOCATES! PLEAD WITH YOUR FRIENDS WHO ARE MOTORISTS BECAUSE CHANGE HAPPENS ONE MOTORIST AT A TIME.
Prayers and condolences to family and friends of the cyclist.

Just when I thought I could not be more fanatical about this subject, this takes it all to a new level.
I will never understand why motorists hate cyclists so much.
Last week I blocked for a guy (there was no bike lane) while I was in my car with my wife. I am sure if I didn't save his life, I centainly spared him a close call. All the while the crazed guy behind me tailgated, and talked to himself.
I can't believe that this subject is not all over the T.V. and the airwaves. What can be done to raise the awareness!?
