Feathery frost coated the car’s windows this morning.
Newspaper? I have no idea how that newspaper got shredded. I’m just lying here.
The truth is that any fair assessment of the relative risks and dangers on our streets would conclude that drivers are far more dangerous to the general public than the less than 1% of San Diegans who travel regularly by bike. And yet cyclists are the one who are tarred with the “scofflaw” meme.
A worthy read, especially its last two paragraphs.
I rode my bike through the snow to work today — bragging rights, baby!1

My January Bicycling Accomplishments
- I biked to work every day I worked in Hillsboro. That’s not as many days as you might think. I travelled nine days, had one day of holiday, and took two days vacation.
- I replaced my tires, after nearly 2,000 miles. I don’t know if that’s a good distance, but after inspecting the old ones and finding a bunch of embedded glass flakes and even a bit of wire cable, I figured it was time.
- I started a spreadsheet to track every day’s mileage. As a result, I get a cool chart.
|Distance||Time / Bike|
|179 miles||Biked in January 20141|
|179 miles||Biked in 20142|
