    we've got similar laws here, if you are over 18 and have your G1 (first step of getting the driver's license here) your bike is considered a vehicle and you need to ride on the road, i'm sure if you're casually riding and are slower/uncomfortable on the road, than you can still ride on the sidewalk though
    any relationship that matters - a friendship, a family, a romance, a band - anything - is a perilous and fragile thing because along with all the amazing experiences and creations that can come from something so intimate and exhausting comes the possibility for things to crumble and shatter or whither and die. when that happens, it's easy to forget what was precious amidst all the disaster. we should always carry our history with us but never let it bury us.

    Downhill racing looks gnarly. Adrenaline much?

    Did 120.0 miles today! It was NOT intense. So boring. By far the longest, straightest, flattest, least scenic highway I've ever ridden on. Never doing it again, but it was awesome. Had a shrimp sandwich and a Corona right by the beach. 8)

    Oh man, 120 miles, that's crazy, but a good workout. How long did it take you to do that?

    About 3.5 hours there and 4 back. It would have been a lot faster had I done it with someone at my fitness level. The dude was totally toast on the ride back, had to slow up quite a bit. Then again, maybe I would have been too sore to ride today if I would have pushed myself. Then again, maybe if I would have been too worn out to ride today, this wouldn't have happened:

    That seems like a ridiculous distance to ride a bike! I don't even like driving 120 miles. You, sir, are a bicycling machine.
    I like my boards like I like my women, big, loose, and fast.

    Bikes are so much fun. I almost never drive anymore unless I have to go somewhere far(20+miles). I commuted through my first Minnesota winter last winter. Sucked for the first couple weeks but I got to like it. I rode 1500 miles last year.

    I ride an 11 year old specialized hardrock that I converted to single speed with the old surly single speed kit. It's not the nicest bike in the world but I'm not riding my globe in the salt/road muck that eats chains and spokes.

    I feel like doing that when cyclists around here ride RIGHT outside the bike lane, in the road, blocking traffic! Bugs the hell out of me!!! There is a BIKE LANE, USE IT!!

    Come on guys. Yes, there are retarded cyclists on our roads. That is not what this thread is about.

    I bike smart and follow all the rules, but I encounter motorists who don't know what they **** they're doing every single day. Want to hear some of my stories? Didn't think so. I don't want to hear yours, either.
