More oil sheens spreading in the Gulf. Obsession with dirty tar sands. Reports of BP marketing spending. It’s been a rough week, which is why this little tidbit over on The Adventure Life made me smile.

Feel overwhelmed and helpless in the current state of fossil-fuel dependent affairs? Hop on your bike. The economically, environmentally and fashionably sound choice.

    <<<<<<<<<<<This one needs to stay on the side of the road, because it can't possibly keep up with the speed of traffic BECAUSE the road was, in fact MADE for THIS ONE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    Sorry, but that's how it is. Be safe, stay out of the way of cars. If you want to ride side by side so you can TALK, stay off the road and go to a coffee shop. Sometimes when you are toodling along in your own little world and you are in the way of traffic going MUCH FASTER than you are, you cause a very dangerous situation, especially when there is oncoming traffic in the lane the driver needs to use to pass you. If there is a curve or a hill or sun in our eyes, we can't always SEE you, and you don't even know it! THIS is why people get hit on bikes. Also, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER turn to look back at the car approaching you from behind. You will nearly always swerve into it's path.

    Interesting view…but I can't seem to agree with you entirely. I'm pretty sure that the people driving the cars that are indeed going much faster also lose sight and control when they are hitting other vehicles…not to mention 'toodling' along to their music…I would have to say that the biker is more aware of their surroundings than someone driving a vehicle and perhaps if you happen to see a biker peek back to double check that YOUR vehicle is approaching YOU should be just as cautious as they are being. Remember…your way isn't always the right way.
