+Ben Folsom​ and the remainder of us, Angry, Aggressive Cyclists, are becoming well known in the Raspberry PI and Twitter universes.

_We have found no evidence that ‘flashing’ your Pi2 with a xenon flash can cause any real damage, but we still don’t recommend doing it (it will crash or reboot, and this means you may corrupt your SD card). I’ve said it above, but it bears repeating, because I’ve seen some of you mention this in the forums and in comments sections elsewhere: common everyday light sources – e.g. bright sunlight, indoor lighting, angry cyclists* – don’t cause this to happen, so please don’t worry!

--------clip--------------

*Note to the paranoid on Twitter: I wasn’t clear enough here. We are referring to ourselves, not dissing you and your bike. We’re in Cambridge, and a lot of us cycle (aggressively) to and from work: we’ve been shining our bike lights at Pis for much of this morning, because they’re the brightest lights any of us own._
If you own a Raspberry Pi 2, congratulations: you're also the proud owner of an elegant demonstration of the photoelectric effect! At the weekend, Peter Onion, a veteran of our forums and of Raspberry Jams in Cambridge, Bletchley and surrounding areas (visible, costumed, in the background of ...

Three more riding days this year, but no commuting for me. 
Rain or shine I will still ride 78 more miles this year.

A fun, interesting collection of tech slides. 
Many are all too true.

I've always ride my bike for transportation and for the fun of it. I've never ridden for the ecology, but I think I will now give it a try. You know; repair, reuse, recycle.

This is my first attempt and I base it on the helmet cover +Ben Folsom​ posted a while back. I have converted an old pair of cycling shorts into a cold, but dry, day helmet cover.

Does anyone have suggestions for improvements?

On the news tonight, charges were filed against the driver but the severity was not announced. The bicyclist was a dentist out on his mtb at 6:30 am.  A second source said there was another cyclist with him who was not struck.  http://columbiadailyherald.com/news/cyclist-killed-culleoka-wreck  The driver cut a corner to the inside of the opposite lane to strike him. The road is a frontage road along I-65 south of Columbia, Tn.  https://www.google.com/maps/@35.5024238,-86.8931848,2560m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en

On some of the country roads I ride drivers will drop to the inside of a downhill, blind curve from the opposite side of the road. There has been more than one unnecessarily close call.

There looks to be a project upcoming this winter. +Steve Sulkowski you should consider sharing your build with them.
Here at Commute by Bike and our sister site, BikeShopHub.com, we get a lot of happy folks who are very excited to share how they use their bikes for tours,

I am most likely to post about bicycling, skydiving, android, linux, Google+, my photographs, and technology in general.

Currently reading the autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini, 1500 -1571, translated by John Addington Symonds, 1887.  (plus two novels)

I have created a user curated list of Google+ bicyclists at Google+ Counter.  The list's title is Plus Cyclists and you are able to add yourself if you wish other cyclists on Google+ to be able to find you.  The list is open to cyclists of all ilks.  Roadies, commuters, mtb-ers, industry, and all others are welcome.

I participated in the Introduction to Database class offered online by Stanford University.  DB-class list is a user curated list for class members.  You have the option to add yourself to it if you are in the class.
