Over at our other site, MtnBikeRiders.com, I do a weekly article in which I call the segment, “Thursday Tech Tip.” Basically I address any issues that most riders will experience. But I know what you’re thinking…”that’s a mountain biking website!” Well yes it is, but unless I’m dealing with suspension and linkages, it all still applies to your bike.
So if you’re interested in learning on what today’s Tech Tip is…just CLICK HERE!
There are quite a bit of bike commuters in the Los Angeles County area. The bike commuter that I have the utmost most respect for is our friend Russ Roca, he’s the Eco-Friendly Photographer that rides his bike to all his photographic assignments. The dude doesn’t own a car and he uses public transportation as much as he can. Oh and check this out, his girlfriend, Laura is a commuter too! That’s right she rides 4-5 days a week. Russ and Laura are good people, Moe and I met both of them at the Urban Commuter Expo in Pasadena.
This morning, rather than getting out the Big Red Bike. I pulled out our Tandem bike and attached the Chariot Trailer Bike. My daughter Breanna and I(she’s the one that took the picture) will be racing our tandem next weekend at the Mt Sac Fat Tire Classic. So I figured what a great way to train for the race and ride to school at the same time.
I was really bothered by the “Dumb Driver.” So I decided to see about clearer images from the video I took. After playing with the videos and taking screen shots, I finally got a clear shot of his license plate and his face. I’m making a copy of the video and photos and sending that over to the Fullerton PD. Now if I see him living in the area, I’m giving him a copy too with a note saying that its been sent to the PD.
