I took Frankenbike along to visit Texas Tech in Lubbock. Look at the photo and you tell ME why I did a little riding on the sidewalk. Fortunately these "B" items were very localized and did not extend onto campus. Speaking of which, they've got bike lanes all over campus, combined with "Share the Road" signs. What does THAT combo mean? On the other hand, motor traffic ran about 15mph so I just went with the flow, other than telling my daughter I spit on the TTU bike lanes (I think it's the ChipSeal influence).
And yes, I rode very slowly on the sidewalk. On the way back, I just rode north until I saw a road without bricks. I don't like riding on bricks. Come to think of it, they're not fun in a car, either.
Subject Matter Mostly it's about local transportation cycling, as it exists in the here and now. It's got a smattering of other gratuitous toy recreation thrown in to keep y'all a little off balance. For those that don't know me, toy recreation means English & Italian cars, aircraft - and downhill skiing.
