Tuesday rides, commuters and Denmark

The Tuesday rides are getting mighty swift. We need some newbies to slow us down and bring us back to our senses. (Written pre-TIS e-mail flurry.)

And on another note. . . the 14th Street bridge in Atlanta is being rebuilt at a cost of millions of dollars and it does not include bike lanes. What are the planners thinking? They obviously must be paying less for their gas than the rest of us. Perhaps they should visit Copenhagen and see what bicycling has done for that city. You can see it here:

And it rains and snows a lot in that city. The summers are short but the days are long.

And on another note... On my way to school today I passed two people on bikes who were obviously on their way to work. One was on the wrong side of the road and riding in the grass to avoid the oncoming traffic. I'm sure we will be seeing more people using bikes for basic transportation in Griffin. We need to be working to make our roadways more bike friendly.

And on another note...BRAG will be here in our city Sunday, June 8..Several thousand cyclists will be staying at Spalding High School and hanging around looking for something to do. Is the Sock Shoppe open on Sunday? Think they would be up for group ride?
