Apart from family, what could be more important than wine and bikes? Of course, there might be the odd rant about other topics on here too...

Bike lanes

I wish I'd had a camera on the commute to work this morning. Taking up the bike lane and part of the next lane beside it was a cop car - and the cop was in a deli... Would have made a great shot.

I'm not a t-shirt wearing "one less car"-snearing commuter, but it really pisses me off when cars park in bike lanes. There's only a 14 miles of bike lanes in Manhattan and not only do the cops not care if you park in them, but they'll do so themselves while they pick up their donuts! But they'll be bussing in plenty of cops on the last Friday of the month though to pick up any cyclists that bemoan our lot at a Critical Mass ride.
