car drivers do not look before they open their car door... it is their duty... it is the law... it is not part of their nature there needs to be a PSA campaign educating drivers of their need to EXPECT cyclists these are different times new variables around us
and cyclists... be cautious when riding do not ride in the DOOR ZONE watch for people opening car doors!
I am trying to cuss less... there was a time where I rarely cussed I always thought there were more creative ways to express yourself somehow over the past few years I have degraded myself to sound like a drunken sailor... even when I am not drunk
FUCK CANCER! CANCER SUCKS! FUCK CANCER!
my friend and strong Clydesdale competitor Brian Fults has cancer I just registered for an event to lend my support for Brian and the extensive cost of his cancer treatment if you know Brian... if you hate cancer... maybe you want to do the same and lend your support
I delivered The Washington Star it was an afternoon paper while in contrast The Washington Post was and is a morning paper I have never been a morning person morning deliveries never worked for me
yes... I delivered newspapers on my bicycle I had a Raleigh Sprite 5 Speed and a back up Sturmey Archer 3 Speed with a red frame by a British manufacturer that I can not recall each bike was equipped with a milk crate attached to the rear rack with a bungee cord
it seems like a different time a time closer to the '50's than the '70's a moment in time not at all like today
the Washington Star vanished out from under me the paper and its circulation disappeared and took my afternoon job with it
shortly after that I witnessed a change less kids and more adults delivering newspapers
similarly, I cut lawns cutting lawns was a job done by neighborhood kids that too changed over time adults with landscaping jobs taking over those tasks
