Copied from the Arvada police dept. FB page.

A cyclist was riding in a designated bicycle lane traveling west when a vehicle struck him from behind. The cyclist suffered serious bodily injury.

Through our investigation, it has been determined that the vehicle drifted into the bike lane because the driver was texting. The driver has been charged with careless driving resulting in serious bodily injury and texting while driving.

Writing or reading a text message takes your eyes off the road for about 4.6 seconds. At 40 miles per hour, that is enough time to travel the length of a football field.

This terrible tragedy serves as a stark reminder to NEVER TEXT & DRIVE. ‪#‎textingkills‬ ‪#‎donttextanddrive‬

DayGlo crossing. At some of the intersections divided by a curb in Portland, there are narrow breaks at that allow cyclists to cross - you see this on designated bike routes. This allows bike traffic through but it keeps the motorized vehicle traffic to a minimum. It works pretty well! #helmetography in #pdx

Here's Portland's famous Darth Vader bagpiper (unmasked) on an electric unicycle at the Bicycle Transportation Alliance's Bike Commute Challenge wrap party tonight. #portland

Trying to slow it down but it's a GIF!  No matter how many times I watch it, it still looks the same.

What a bike shop should be. What this place is NOT: A glitzy, corporate bike shop, with a lot of clothes and low end bikes and poorly trained mechanics. What this place IS: A friendly neighborhood bike shop, with guys who are real mechanics that ride bikes each and every day. These guys will happily fix the flat on your kids sidewalk bike. But they are equally adept in running new hydraulic brake lines for your high end mountain bike. Bonus, they speak fluent Campy as well. They usually have a good selection of good quality real bikes in the shop, both new and used. Yeah, it looks a little scruffy right now, but they just moved from a smaller shop. This place is larger, and the will have more room to server their customers

Glad to have this business near by. Saves me trips to the post office. Why wait in long lines to ship things or to get stamps. It's convenient, right next to Weaver St. Market in Southern village. The owner and her staff are friendly, and have helped me ship packages all over the world.

I have been taking our two cars here for years. They were the only place that would fix problems with my wifes old Jetta without always wanting to replace lots of expensive parts. This is not one of those places where you take your car in for an oil change, and all of a sudden they find 3 'issues' you need to address right away. They follow the manufacturers suggested maintenance schedules for your car, so taking your brand new car here, instead of the dealer, will still get 'by the book' maintenance, and it will not cost an arm and a leg.
