Bev:Just a note for those of you who live in the North Park area, friends of mine were mugged at gun & knife point last night (near University & Texas). They were 15 feet from their front door just stepping out to pick up somthing from the shop when a car pulled up beside them, 2 people jumped out (one with knife, one with gun), yelled "get on the ground, give my your purse", and got away with everything (wallets with addresses, house keys, car keys, Iphones, etc...) I know it probably happens fairly frequently, but it is much more a reality when it's people you know. I am very loosey goosey, lacksadazacle, never thinking that something like that would happen but it does. Stay sharp, stay aware!
mike_ballard:What time did this occur? I assume this was reported to the police?
- Ride single file (in most cases). If you are going to ride two abreast, do so in an area where it can be done safely and without compromising other cyclists or other drivers. NEVER EVER ride more than two abreast. We all hate road-hogs when we are driving our cars, and there is simply no reason to have to take up whole non-bike lanes when riding in a peloton on city streets. Everyone has a right to the road, cars and cyclist alike. Let's not incite road rage.- Come to a stop when the sign or light says STOP. No short-cut "fake" U-turns to avoid a light. Stop.- When passing other cyclists, call out "on your left" when at an appropriate distance from other riders. Give them a chance to yield the road. They will comply. Just let them know that you are there.- Never, ever, pass a cyclist on the right side. Never. Ever.- If you are out for a training ride and need to ride at high speeds, the place NOT to do this is on shared bikeways that include roller skaters, dog walkers, and other, rookie, cyclists. We all need to get in good workouts from time to time. Choose your routes carefully.- Wearing a Spandex club jersey does not give you the right to blow people off the road or abruptly cutting in front of a passed cyclist. Never. Ever.- Look up from the road immediately in front of you from time to time. You'd be surprised at how much fun you will get if you are not grimacing all the time with your sole intent on speed competitions (either alone or in a peloton). You'll live longer and might afford a less experienced cyclists to enjoy their ride, too.- Get in the habit of acknowledging other cyclists that are SHARING the road with you. If they say hello, say hello back! They might not have the fanciest, lightest, bikes or that really cool Spandex outfit, but they are your cycling brothers and sisters. Say hello - FIRST.- If you don't like the way someone is riding near you, tell them IN A NICE WAY HOW THEY CAN IMPROVE. No barking. Never. Ever. A little education, delivered in a calm voice, goes a long way. The rookies are usually terrified being out in traffic. If you share with them the right way to ride, they will likely share this with someone else and look up to their more senior cyclists for offering good advice instead of disdaining their behavior. Sort of a Golden Rule thing, you know?- SHARE the road, courteously, safely. Is it really that hard?
