Have a good one!



  1. Guess what? I just totally had the road rage and ended up looking like a totally idiot, which I remembered I am. Someone sorta crowded me in a lane, and I got right behind them at the red light really close to their car so they could see my bike face in their mirror. My bike face mostly involves squinting like I’m mad and sometimes shaking my head.

    Anyhow, when the light turned green, I totally rear-ended them, and made this scary road rage noise that sounded like “oooof!” Nice. Next time I’ll stay back a couple of feet.

  2. While biking in Minneapolis this past summer, I rear-ended a car too. I was using the bike lane on Portland Avenue when a car pulled into my path from the adjacent parking lane. I braked hard, but nevertheless made a light impact with the car’s rear half. I was unhurt, the driver was gracious about the incident, and perhaps you can find solace in knowing that you are not the only person who has rear-ended a car with a bike.

  3. I had a nice ride with a couple local riders. I’ll post about it on my blog soon. They were more experienced (and definitely thinner) than me, but were cool enough to slow down enough so that the fat guy is able to keep up! I think I might riding in groups!

  4. Nice! I hardly think you are a fat guy! That’s really cool that you discovered that it’s fun.
