kziegs Friends, I'm angry this morning. (Mom, this post isn't for you - I'm okay.) I'm angry at the bike chain bruise on my calf, and at the much angrier bruise taking shape on my thigh, and at the coward who kicked his car door open in front of me and then ran, but I'm feeling especially angry about two myths about biking that I talk about a lot but that came together again this morning, so let's set those straight (again): 1) Biking is not inherently dangerous. It's not, even without helmets, and especially not when you factor in public health benefits. It's just not. BUT.
2) Same Road Same Rules is nonsense, and if you espouse that you're anti-cyclist. Period. #sorrynotsorry The roads are not the same. The risks are not the same, which is why horror stories of bikes crushed by buses make the news and much more frequent fatal car accidents do not, and why we're fighting the myth that riding a bike is Super Risky. The roads are not the same for bikes, and to assert that they WOULD be, if only bikes would follow the RULES, is false. It's just not accurate. Sometimes, The Rules are actually less safe for bikes. Sometimes following them means taking a stand against a vehicle several times my size, and why should we expect anyone to do that in the name of The Rules? We need infrastructure and education and all sorts of things to make cycling safer still and accessible to more people, but most of all what we need is to have an honest, adult conversation about the fact that the roads built for cars CANNOT be the same, in practice, for bikes. Because physics. Because science.

  •   alexbyersays Oh mama, I hope you're ok and yes to all of the above. There needs to be more education to ensure EVERYONE knows what they should be doing. 3w
  •   jprominski Sorry woman. As a new cyclist I definitely have begun being much more conscious of bike lanes and speed and things all drivers should be conscious of. It sucks sometimes to be a cyclist and to worry about cars on the road not paying attention to see you. I hope you're okay, woman. Sending out good vibes on your travels. Missing your lovely face. 3w
  •   kziegs @alexbyersays @jprominski Thanks, ladies! I'm okay, but only because I've got a low center of gravity and well-honed traffic reflexes. It just really irks me because just because I rode away, doesn't mean someone couldn't be very seriously hurt by this guy not looking; and then also, just because this can happen, doesn't mean biking is mega-dangerous and for adrenaline junkies only. Post-adrenaline coffee and breakfast is calming my angst. 3w
  •   ariellelynn @kziegs I had a similar experience at Mass Ave and Beacon a few years ago. I feel your angst! 3w
  •   orangemangolime @kziegs I get it. I feel you. I'm with you. 3w

kziegs DIY rug resizing is pretty standard for a Sunday evening with visiting family, right? #workingontheweekend #familyoperation 3w
  •   amelitajanie Exactly how are you doing that? 3w
  •   kziegs @amelitajanie Exacto knives, needle and thread. The rug was a freebie with damage on either end, and was too big for any room in our house. Also not Persian/valuable. So...we'll see. 3w
  •   amelitajanie If it doesn't work out I just a Nuloom on Overstock for a deal and I'm very pleased with the quality. 3w
