  1. Surgeon Generals Warning: Bicycling next to canals can lead to embarrassment, wet underwear, and the good chance you will be pointed at and laughed at.

  2. the good path is always narrow and difficult?
    choosing the narrow path is always fraught with danger?
    it is easier for a biker to ride down this path than it is for a camel to squeeze through the eye of a needle…

  3. Apartment for lease:
    Great location
    Utilities Included
    Triathlon Training out your front door.

  4. Tired of all the whining from the bicyclists, the mayor finally said, “Fine, here is your bloody bike lane!”

  5. Hey, looks like youth ministry: stray to the left, you’ll get hit by a car and the parents won’t care — at least their kid is safe! Stray to the left, you’ll fall in the river and your pastor won’t be there to pick you up.

  6. It’s not original but I thought it appropriate:

    “A bicycle does get you there and more…. And there is always the thin edge of danger to keep you alert and comfortably apprehensive. Dogs become dogs again and snap at your raincoat; potholes become personal. And getting there is all the fun.”
    ~Bill Emerson, “On Bicycling,” Saturday Evening Post, 29 July 1967

  7. Finally Matt Hoffman was awarded with his own Boulevard.

Because it made the people feel a little funny inside their tummies, they decided to make his lane extra-wide.

  8. Further proof of Big Oil’s commitment to promote using fewer non-renewable resources.

  9. Governor Schwarzenegger’s prototype Wide Outside Lane with Soft Shoulder at the bottom of Lombard Street near Ghirardelli Square.

  10. It’s true the right-wing fundies have a way to tell if you are pomo – it called the Trial by the Straight and Narrow. One Bike – One Bus – One Chance! (Training wheels provided if you confess that you are “recovering”)
