Bike Your Drive!

The Race Card: Who would you be more afraid of?

As Bike Commuters we ride through different parts of the city in various neighborhoods. In my commute, I travel through two extremes in the standard of living. I first ride through a middle class neighborhood, then go through a super low income neighborhood and end up in an upper class neighborhood.. In my ride, I often see all types of people, white, Latino, and Asians. With a mix of people that I see, I’m not quite sure who I should be more cautious around…the white folks, the Latinos or Asians?

What about you?

Should you be afraid of this guy?

Or this guy?

What about this guy?

L.A. Ranks #4 in Road Rage

We are #4! That’s right, the city of Angels is more like the city of road ragers. Although I can say that I had very few altercations with motorists while riding my bike, it is when I drive that I tend to see the lunatics.

To be truthful, I can tell that my patience level really decreases when I drive. But when I ride my bike, road rage goes out the window. So there you have it, another reason to ride your bike to work. No road rage!

Here are other cities that made the list:

1 Miami
2 New York
3 Boston
4 Los Angeles
5 Washington, D.C.
6 Phoenix
7 Chicago
8 Sacramento
9 Philadelphia
10 San Francisco

They’re called Knickers…not Capris!

Hoss MTB will be introducing a new line of Knickers by the end of the month. Here’s what they told me…

The Ponderosa Knickers will share the fit and many of the features of the Ponderosa Shorts (see www.hossmtb.com), but in a 3/4 length design. The Knickers will be available in sizes Small through XXXL, in black, grey and beige.

Hoss will be sending me a pair to test out! I can’t wait, woohoo! I’ll post pictures once I get them.
