billd:She taught you how to enjoy the rip tide? Impressive when teaching a self described poor swimmer.
bikingbill:OK, so Rose Canyon bike path is nice.But WTF is with Rose Creek? I rode it for the first time in a decade (San Diego Randonneurs ride on Saturday), and it's still crap. The section neat the soccer fields still has the bumps and holes I remember from the 1990's.Really?

The section neat the soccer fields still has the bumps and holes I remember from the 1990's.Really?The whole section between Mission Bay Park/De Anza Cove and the crossing over Mission Bay Drive near In and Out has been abandoned, more or less. The northern end of that segment is full of trash and homeless people--probably the trashiest homeless camp I've seen in San Diego, except maybe for parts of East Village. At least it was a couple of weeks ago when I last rode through there--might have been a beach/creek cleanup day in the interim. And as you say, the bumps on the Southern segment are pretty bad.You know the City of San Diego has a deferred maintenance backlog...I doubt the resurfacing of that path is a priority.
Ever since the combat with the cities of Rancho Palos Verdes and Palos Verdes Estates began over the installation of a few signs (more NIMBY agitation over this than over the federal class action lawsuit alleging gang behavior and city complicity, yo), I’ve been testing the theory that local residents dislike cyclists.What I’ve found is that for they most part, they do not. At worst the don’t care. At best they actually like us. The Lunada Bay Boy on Mom’s Couch and his NIMBY vidiot-recorder who are making such hay with their hatred of cyclists are a tiny slice of nastiness and venom in otherwise pretty nice bunch of folks.
Greg believes that a vigorous, active lifestyle plays a HUGE role in the general health and psychological well being of every individual. We live in an automobile dominated, convenience food world and, unfortunately, physical activity is the first thing neglected. As a society, our reliance on burning fossil fuels to drive the kids down the street is disturbing. Aside from the obvious ecological costs of our passivity, the lack of physical activity is costing us BILLIONS in increased health care obligations every year, warns Greg. His hope is to inspire others to get up, get out and get moving.It is his goal to direct attention to these pressing issues by combining an extreme physical challenge with innovative, cutting-edge green technology. "I would really just love to remind everyone about that bike in the garage. Dust it off and get out there and ride it - You'll be amazed at how great you'll feel".
Most who survey the statue dedicated to local icon Bill Walton see bliss and a bike, a local icon with arms stretched wide as if to embrace the San Diego he loves.The 1,200-pound, bronze tribute immortalizes the man involved in 52 local charities and counting, a person who pours immeasurable time and money into helping thousands rather than resting on the comforts an incredible basketball career provided.Organizers offered the $200,000 piece of art as a permanent gift to the San Diego International Airport, a pitch-perfect location to greet residents and visitors. The Airport Authority’s Art Advisory Committee – and try to wrap your mind around this one – said thanks, but no thanks.Why would you want something honoring one of the most giving, selfless San Diegans in history positioned so the more than 20 million annual passengers could see and celebrate it? Why would you want to showcase life-affirming lessons from a person who refused to wallow in the potential shallowness of a sports past, choosing instead to use the resources and platforms a game provided to tirelessly aid the city you serve?When the statue was unveiled in May, Mayor Kevin Faulconer told me Walton transcended sports: “Bill is part of the fabric of San Diego. He’s a living legend here with all he’s done.”
sd_mike:Anyone else here have an amateur radio call sign? Mine is KM6GCB.
sd_mike:I may try to work something out with my bicycle and/or motorcycle. We'll see... for now I seem to have ended up carrying my HT everywhere I go. So, you got your license in NY or NJ then? Cool! I still don't have a base station, but I'm content with my HT and eventual nicer antenna for my apartment.
gottobike:OK... blasphemous statements complete. (Sigurd, you can put me on time out now if you like.)
sd_mike:I shall be getting married on November 30 at the San Diego County Administration Center in the morning. It also looks like I will finally have a job again soon at the DMV.
gottobike:I'm very interested in amateur radio from a bicycle. Any recommendations on getting started? Especially simulation software for SDR?Now... my following comments may be considered blaspheme by some so please close your eyes if you would be offended.If providing battery power for a radio, wouldn't it make sense to go all electric? Like an electric bike? (warned ya, close your eyes)If that seems logical, then wouldn't an electric trike make even more sense? Like maybe the 2017 Raleigh Tristar IE? (no peaking)Note that this trike has capacity for 2 batteries and should be stable enough to rig an umbrella for shade. (ok, safe to at least squint now)I look at a trike as a bike with room for a shack in back. Now if they just made an electric trike with a Nuvinci CVT.OK... blasphemous statements complete. (Sigurd, you can put me on time out now if you like.)
gottobike:I'm more interested in understanding the technology than actually using it. Any tips on getting started with building a base station radio that could be transported via bicycle (or, maybe a trike... electric... CVT)?All the best rides for you guys.- GTB

sd_mike:“Because auto traffic is so heavy, drivers of cars pulling in and out of parking spaces – or fighting to beat another driver out of an open space – will be additionally distracted by more bike traffic. Families attempting to ride together will be dangerous obstacles, with attention on each other, not on cars.”That sort of attitude is beyond disgusting. It is the "you be careful out there" sort of "warning" that is generally given by those that cause the danger to help separate themselves from the responsibility of their own actions. Same thing happens with schools - "it is too dangerous for Billy to walk/bicycle/anything but ride in a car because of all those dangerous cars", ignoring the fact they are one of those dangerous drivers. Seems to me that LESS people competing for parking would be a good thing, no? Cars take up the bulk of the space as it is, yet no complaints about how much space parking takes up.
fjl307:"“My opinion as a member of La Jolla Parks & Beaches is no to DecoBike,” said Realtor Bob Evans. “I don’t like the space that it takes up, and don’t like the advertising in our parks and beaches area that comes with it. If there is a demand for bike rentals in La Jolla, then I would rather see it filled by local merchants.”"Says the realtor who I'm pretty sure has advertised on MTS bus stops and on city-owned park benches.
Smorg:Was riding home after bike-o-rama tagging when I passed this scene: I really don't get it. Why do the postmen and the delivery truck drivers like to park in the bike lane so much even when there are places nearby where they could pull into and be out of the way? (So what if they end up blocking a driveway for a few minutes in the middle of the day when the residents are either staying in or had gone to work? Isn't that better than blocking the bike lane on a designated bike route?)
