    Very well stated. I could go on about this for pages, but I won't. You've done a good job of saying what needs to be said.

    In the OP's situation, I probably would have made exactly the same choice. As others have pointed out, that's not entirely logical -- you can certainly have a serious crash without cars around. But...

    I agree. The only reason I signed up for Facebook is to keep up with my online friends who have drifted away from the bulldog group. But it's just not the same.

    If I bought this horn, I'd have to buy a GoPro too. Because there would surely be some, um, interesting reactions. Then I'd want video editing software -- it would end up being a pricey horn. But...

    Combination bike horn and light

    I'm not ready to plunk down $65 for this product, but a dual-tone horn would be really useful for urban riding. The unfamiliar sound might confuse people, which might not be helpful. But at least...

    Rude?

    If a cyclist has crashed and is lying on a relatively narrow portion of a MUP, would it maybe be a good idea for passing cyclists to get off their bikes and walk past his prone body? Yes, there was...

    I see cargo bikes used for delivery in Manhattan. I also see parents transporting children in Bakfiets (not sure if that's a generic term). They are usually on a MUP -- I don't know how much they...

    Why fewer women than men cycle in the US

    According to the UK Guardian, anyway. I don't have children, and I don't have knowledge of what life is like in the Netherlands, so I don't have much to say on the topic. However, I do see this is...

    A hover board would be very useful at times.

    I think I know the video you mentioned -- I didn't post it, but I did see it. NYC does get a bit crazy at times.

    Passing articulated buses

    Does anyone deal with the extra long articulated buses? They really scare me -- well, all buses do. I've googled and read about blind spots. I keep finding the advice (re trucks) that if you can't...

    Cyclist made my day
