Just got back the other day from riding Quebec City. The riding was great and the weather perfect, for me that is. I encourage anyone looking for a new city to ride to consider this one.

What do people think about fat tire bike racing for the next Winter Olympics? I think it should be considered.

"By the way, if you think 30-car pile-ups are an argument against driving when it comes to urban planning, think again.  I mean, look at all the money changing hands here!  Police overtime, towtrucks, insurance companies, auto repair shops...  This isn't an "accident," it's a freaking bonanza!  This is why those poor hapless bike advocates need to stop arguing that bike infrastructure makes sense because it's "inexpensive."  Uh, don't you get it?  Inexpensive is no good!  Get the granola out of your ears, for chrissakes.  When you build a highway a lot of people get rich!  Politicians, contractors, supply companies...  Meanwhile, who's getting paid when they slap some green paint on Prospect Park West?  Nobody, that's who.  It's a few gallons of Benjamin Moore from Pintchik, big f**king deal.

No, if we want some bike lanes we better start pushing for some multi-billion-dollar projects, like maybe a 200-foot wide bicycle superhighway from Staten Island to the Canadian border.  See, a lot of people would stand to gain from building a great big shitshow like that--and that's when the bribes start to flow and the politicians get their asses in gear.  Then, before you know it, you've got the green light, and 50 years later ground has been broken."

Okay not a happy thought, but hey we know what to put on the Christmas wish list....
