Someone removed 16 storm drain grates in the bike lanes along Springfield today (or last night) ... it was reported to the city and they have been able to recover them from below ...

A charity ride in North Carolina for The MS Society was marred last weekend by tacks strewn across the paths used ... http://www.witn.com/content/news/Tacks-scattered-along-charity-bike-route-cause-flats-for-cyclists-443619513.html

Maybe it's not paranoia since it seems like there are people out there to hurt cyclists?


ok that is a bit much, a toddler could fall in

One of these days they'll consider adopting a new design for curbside drain covers. Whoever thought of the current design led a sheltered life as a teen.

Well that us a pretty silly video, not like any cyclists don't own a caw....
Maybe some of these hard workers lack the skill needed to ride a bicycle.... is that maybe the problem?
