Seriously now, why are you riding the wrong way against all the traffic? It's people like you who make the rest of us law-abiding cyclists look bad! It's great you're riding your bike, I love to ride mine too, but please don't make up your own god damn rules. You expect every other driver, cyclist and pedestrian to figure out what your new rules are that you just made up? So why are you riding the wrong way?

Here's a little piece that was a real eye opener... We were discussing homosexuality because of an allusion to it in the book we were reading, and several boys made comments such as, “That’s disgusting.” We got into the debate and eventually a boy admitted that he was terrified/disgusted when he was once sharing a taxi and the other male passenger made a pass at him. The light bulb went off. “Oh,” I said. “I get it. See, you are afraid, because for the first time in your life you have … [Read more...] about How Sexual Harassment Feels for Women
In the summer of 1962, nine miles of the autobahn in Freiberg, Germany were closed for Frenchman Jose Meiffret to set a new cycling speed record. His bicycle was setup with a 130-tooth chainring (and 15t cog to equal 225 gear inches), equipped with wooden rims so they won't overheat and weighed a hefty 44lbs (20 kg).

I was hanging out with a couple friends the other day and I half-jokingly said I think everytime someone gets a notification on Facebook, a little bit of dopamine is released. Then my friend Adam Davis, said that we like Facebook because we make it about us. Then he started to break it down...
