I slow down and roll through most stop signs.
All cool if other people donít. But I will call anyone a liar who tells me that they come to a complete stop at EVERY stop sign they encounter.

Are you kidding me? I am framing my first bicycle speeding ticket. If I don't have one by the time I am 70, I am going to make it a mission to get one. I hope I can get the cop to pose with me.

Simple?

Whenever I ride out of the door zone, someone will claim I'm going to die because the DOOR ZONE goes WAY OVER THERE!

Slightly funky bass line.
