Weekly Cycling Roundup, 4/11/16



7 Things To Know This Week.

  1. It can’t be, park rangers using radar guns to catch speeding cyclists? No wonder my yard was covered with snow in April, hell is freezing over!
  2. Although my yard was covered with snow Saturday, spring has really sprung and it’s time to wipe off the dust, and snow, on your bike and get a fresh tune up to start the season.
  3. Bet you didn’t know not a single American has been killed using a bike share.
  4. Using bicycles to patrol dense urban areas where traffic congestion sometimes occurs is effective policing.
  5. Make sure your AAA membership is up to date, AAA launches roadside assistance for bicyclists.   If it includes towing, my Plus membership has 100 miles of free towing, I could do a self-supported century ride with AAA as SAG.  Genius, right?
  6. Tour de Trump (yes, really!), is another oft-overlooked failed venture of the real estate tycoon in 1989. It was going to be very, very, very big!
  7. AWESOME, a mountain bike trail for adaptive cyclists! Just AWESOME!!
