City crews cut off a square bollard at the entrance to an MUP leaving a jagged 1/3" square sticking out of the ground. If you didn't know it was there it would be very easy to run over. Now that the snow is melting I should go take a pic of it and have the city grind it flush with the ground.

Do you live somewhere without streetcars? These tracks are often running in a regular traffic lane, and when coupled with bad drivers, pedestrians, and trains flying around eachother can make for a very dangerous time for a cyclist.

Yeah, I've never seen one before in my life. I didn't know they laid the tracks right in the traffic lanes, I always assumed they either had a dedicated space where no other traffic was allowed (like a raised median or something) or they didn't require tracks.

Reminds me of the time I was touring from Canada into Alaska. It was caribou hunting season so the hunters were out en force.

On the Canadian side of the border typical hunting attire was jeans and flannel shirts. Crossing the border into Alaska everybody was decked out in full camo with all kinds of accessories and special gadgets, because they were led to believe that they needed all that shit for a successful hunt by advertisers.

It isn't a whole lot different in the bikeing world. Casuals are led to believe they need a special outfit to ride their bike. I see it on the MUP all the time. Some 65 year old couple on a 30 minute ride avging 8mph wearing lycra shorts and jersey, probably because thats what the guys at the LBS told them they needed.

The girl in >>647109 might be wearing some cheap generic shit but the fact remains that she spend more to ride her bike then >>647186 who is just wearing everyday cloths and avoided spending any money on cycling specific clothes.

I think you're getting too hung up on the word 'expensive'. Even if she spent $10 on the whole shebang it was an unnecessary expenditure for a total casual.

>You're an idiot and have never shopped for these things ever

I love how complete strangers like to make these major assumptions about others based on a couple of lines they posted on an anonymous website. It shows a lot of intelligence.

Therefore it was more expensive for girl 1 to ride her bike than it was for girl 2 because girl two didn't drop any cash on a dedicated outfit.

Makes sense to me not sure why others have trouble grasping this.

I'm pretty sure that >>647186 was making another point than what you concluded. What that point is, I'm not sure, but I'm basing this on the fact that he posted a posed model photograph of a girl who probably doesn't even know how to ride a bike.

>implying that owning gear means you use it 100% of the time without fail no matter what, no exceptions

She's clearly out there for exercise only and wants to be comfortable. When I go on long bike rides (50-100 miles) I wear appropriate gear. If I'm commuting or going to the store or going to hang out somewhere, I wear regular clothes. I do always wear a helmet, though, because I enjoy my skull's lack of cracks and would rather wear a helmet and not need it than not wear it and smear my brains on the pavement when I finally run out of luck and have a statistically-probable severe accident.

I ride a road bike, bro. But if you're gonna commute, you better get some tires that work in real world conditions, not only on a track.

Do you actually know what you're talking about? I was riding at the beach today with 2.1" cruiser tires and the front still washes out on thick sand. In some places it gets bag enough where it completely covers the road and the curb. You're going to wash out on that stuff. The difference between 23mm and 28mm is marginal. In some ways the skinnier tires are better because they can cut through the sand. Other times fatter tires are better because of better traction over a larger area. Middle size tires are like the worst of both worlds for sandy roads.

Why does your town turn the roads into beaches in winter?

Because it rains and the sand washes onto the road/path?

Considering that sometimes I cycle on roads near the beach, yes. It has been windy recently too, so double yes.

It's a natural process of the elments.
All beaches started off as ancient bike path but were broken down by time and the elements.

He has the look of a child thrilled with a new toy in the photo. I think that photography is a great tool for humanizing people since it can be used to capture small glimpses into the reality of the world, the tiny moments that people forget to hide. It's a great feeling to remember that everyone is human at their core.

This.

The only bit of actual cycling kit I wear is a clearance jersey, just so I have a pocket for my key that isn't in my pants. I also wear a cycling cap because my normal hat doesn't fit underneath my helmet correctly.

Meaning we can casually dismiss the humanity of others. Feels great.
