Riding Safety  - 
 
A man who works in my office building just stopped me in the hall, pointed at me and in an accusatory tone, stated: "I see you riding your bike around town. I want to congratulate you on your safety measures: you are very safe!" #awwshucks

We just have to hold our ground and be polite. When the gas is over five bucks a gallon we will be the ones laughing .... Wait ... I am laughing now

Riding Safety  - 
 
Although this is not a route I usually ride, I will be even more alert next time I take the Eastbank Esplanade. There are increasing numbers of homeless camps under the bridges now, and it'll only go up as it gets warmer. Homelessness is a sad situation on the rise in Portland and probably in the rest of the USA too.

I passed a tent set up on the White Rock Trail under the Forest Ln bridge. I assumed the owner is homeless. That trail is usually pretty well used, so must've been a bit of a desperation place to pitch it. Last couple of nights have been very cold and icy, so I guess nobody was trying to use the trail at night.

+Aixe Djelal  Thanks. You and I both, it seems, might appreciate something like a wireless shutter cable on the handlebar. Problem is, close to zero demand means zero supply.

It's the same growing problem here in Washington, DC.

Here's Portland band Buttercup on a local TV show. My hubby Matt is the guitar player and singer in striped pants and the skeptical rabbit t-shirt.

We should talk about the dummy driving the gray car in the fog. Who does that?

Cycling up the center lane on 4th Avenue during evening rush hour. This is a much safer and faster option than either the left or the right lane from which everyone seems to be turning. #helmetography
