As it so happens I just got back from riding pic related, got in two hours after work riding singletrack and gravel in the dark. Was fun, but I have to confess I'm a total wuss when it comes to rock drops and ruts at night.
While out today I passed through the valley where a pumpkin patch is located. On one side there was a giant truck with a sign saying to enter from other side of valley blockading the road because a bridge at the bottom is condemned and barricaded. Sure enough while riding down that road I encountered a woman in an SUV who must have gone into the ditch to get around the truck confident the sign and truck was a ruse. When I was exiting the valley there was a constant stream of cars kicking up a huge plume of dust.

FAQ >Why do people ride a recumbent? Comfort. A recumbent is extremely comfortable, since your whole back is supported, your vision is undisturbed and there is no strain on any part of your body. Also, depending on the type and model of recumbent, they are more aerodynamic then uprights and thus also faster.
>Why are velomobiles so expensive? They are cheaper then high end carbon bikes if you compare the building hours-to-price. If you use one to replace your car, it will save you money in a few years of usage. If you're to poor to afford a new one, buy a second hand one, they go for about 3000e, but I've seen them for 1000e.
I'm not a bent rider myself (reasons). But on an upright bike, when my heart rate goes above 150 for extended periods, I tend to dip my head down periodically to help blood flow to my brain. Do you think the prone rider position of a 'bent gets more blood flow to the brain?
>Why does the US, and California in particular have such shitty public transport? is it american greed and capitalism?
