Friday Fun - Cynical but still Fun

Business first before fun, remember that this Saturday night when you go to bed to move your clocks forward so that you make it to all of your races ON TIME. Now on with the show..

Busy week, Google unveils their Biking feature on google maps but still trying to see how this will change anyones riding habits. And at the rate Denver is going most of the downtown streets will have sharrows and now your neighbor will feel safe riding on those streets.

Sounds like some idiots/rednecks tried to harass local cyclist Danny Summerhill. Maybe if the road he was on would have had a sharrow painted then everything would have been different. If that's true then lets all hit our local Home Depot this weekend and get some white paint and get painting.

Less cynical, a new website launched this week, http://www.peopleforbikes.org/, they want you to take their pledge. The site is backed by the Boulder Bikes Belong so you can assume that you pledge will help them fight in congress

I am for bikes. I'm for long rides and short rides. I'm for commuting to work, weekend rides, racing, riding to school, or just a quick spin around the block. I believe that no matter how I ride, biking makes me happy and is great for my health, my community and the environment we all share. That is why I am pledging my name in support of a better future for bicycling—one that is safe and fun for everyone. By uniting my voice with a million others, I believe that we can make our world a better place to ride.

Now on to the more "fun" part... I think these two videos are related
