The view on my evening commute. Mustard flowers came out this week in NorCal. What's that "ice" and "snow" thing you easterners are talking about?

Mountains in california get cold. Here (100ft elevation valley near coast) we get a half inch of snow every 10-20 years. Usually a few weeks of below freezing overnight temps every year, though.
Used to be we'd get week after week of rainstorm November through January, but droughts make for great cycling weather.

Is Assembly Member Chu actively trying to get cyclists killed, or just ignorant of the fact that red leds exist?

Problems with this bill: it's based on victim blaming, not data; it mandates a blinking light, when evidence isn't really there that blinking is safer than solid; the reflective clothing mandate is poorly considered; and of course a blinking white tail light will be dangerously confusing when red is the normal rear light color for vehicles.
Existing law requires that a bicycle operated during darkness upon a highway, a sidewalk where bicycle operation is not prohibited by the local jurisdiction, or a bikeway, as defined, be equipped with a red reflector on the rear that is visible from a distance of 500 feet to the rear when ...

Assembly Member Kansen Chu, good grief. Introduced that bill the same day he was sworn into office.

I just started using mine for the kid - it's really smooth, but yeah, I can see how it would be tough to lock up and such. Now, if he would just keep his darn helmet on! :)

I'm hoping this bill dies in its first committee...  (California)

Is it cheating on Rule #7 when it's grit from rain and roadwork?

Introduction
Dear people adding me: If we've never met face-to-face, you don't have any posts I can see, and your 'About' is empty, I'm not going to add you back. I only add people that I know or seem interesting in some way, and I'm likely to add you to a circle based on what I see there...

If you're adding me to a circle you're creating, perhaps you should create the circle empty, share a post to that circle, then add everybody to it, so that there's something for people you're adding to see?

Anyways...

I live in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, Northern California. I ride a bicycle for transportation and recreation. I'm involved in bicycle advocacy, in particular as a member of the board of the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition. I'm a linux server system administrator at Sonoma State University. I really like beer and whisky, and even do a bit of homebrewing. I'm into food, especially tasty food and locally grown food. I post most often about bike stuff, but about other things, too.

Eaten there only a few times, but have had to-go or delivery a bunch. Food is consistently very good. Obviously fresh ingredients. Nothing fancy, but all good.

Have always had a good experience when getting food *there*, but the *to-go* experience is very hit or miss. A few days ago, ordered togo: fried rolls, fresh rolls, beef onion roll noodle bowl, and combo seafood soup with a substitution. The first three things all came fine, but the soup had rice instead of rice noodles and no meat at all. Broth, veggies and rice. Not much of a soup. Everything else tasted quite good, but the whole point of going there was getting the soup. Basically, if you order anything to-go that involves them needing to write down something more complicated than "C7", you'll want to carefully double-check that you're actually getting what you ordered. Personally, I'd rather not deal with that kind of hassle and will be very reluctant to return.

Food is *okay*. There's several better Mexican places nearby. After the second time that eating there gave me an unpleasant digestive experience, I haven't been back, and I plan to never return there. Go to El Rancho Taqueria around the corner, instead. Or Cafe Salsa in downtown Cotati.
