Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I'm guessing that the stated reason was something relating to vagrancy or similar. I'd be like, "I'm not a bum - do you know how much all this **** cost?"

They'll pass a law that says other citizens can sue you for cycling.

New* wheelset day:



*Replaced rims, nipples, and rear DS spokes.

Also once again have foot pain from a new set of shoes. And a fairly large bruise developing on my left foot below my ankle from my crash on Sunday. My feet really must hate me.

Clickbaity title of an email which somehow avoided my spam filter: "Did you know your body is full of toxins?"

I thought, "Must suck to be a cannibal, then."

A few years ago a member of the Montana state legislature introduced a bill to make it illegal for people to walk on highways outside of town limits where there is no shoulder. Interestingly, he owned a Harley dealership. The bill went nowhere, but it did garner him publicity.
