Since I've become pretty lackadaisical about generating new posts here on the Bike Nazi, I thought I'd post some links to previous comments that have returned to my attention recently.
One recurring issue is turn signals. Lots of motorists seem to not be aware their car has turn signals, or are too self-absorbed to think it important to signal... or let's face it, with cellphone in one hand and coffee in the other, it's just not possible to push the little thingie. Previous commentary on the topic HERE.
Granddaughter Mackenzie is 7 now. I recently upgraded her to a pretty nice little 24-inch Kona bicycle. She loves it. (Although the reality is, a 7-year-old has a lot of entertainment interests and distractions; sometimes it's hard to coax Mackie to go riding with me if a favorite movie is on, or if she's absorbed in a game on one of the family "devices.") I've been fondly reminiscing about the Summer of '11, when 4-year-old Mackie and I rode to 92 playgrounds around Boise! More info can be seen HERE. (That will always be one of my fondest memories!)
The Tour de France is underway right now. (We Americans are once again not interested, since Lance retired, and then fell from grace.) A few years ago I posted about the Tour de France Diet... and about how your food options are considerably more varied if you ride a bike regularly. (Since I love to eat, and I have two excellent cooks in the family, that is a considerable incentive for me to hop on and ride.) Read it HERE.
