WATCH OUT DOOD!

I was reminded again today how dangerous it is for bikers to ride on public streets...

The road was totally blocked w/ cop cars, ambulances, fire trucks, wreckers, and a lifeflight helicopter... I actually had people (not just the one village idiot, but MULTIPLE PEOPLE) ask "Is the road closed?" "Did somebody get hurt?" "How do I get home?"

Point is, the obvious was not obvious to these people. Most astonishingly, they were "trapped" and only knew one way home! :confused1 Dood! This is the same logic, or lack of, that some people use while driving! Scary t!

Just remember who/what you're dealing with out there!

When I can, I try to hit the beltway instead of riding through Pearland. Just don't like 518 esp with the new medians, I don't feel safe riding next to them....assuming thats where this all went down?

35 actually... but could have just as easily been 518.

Everybody but the guy who came up with the median idea thinks the medians are horrible... "But so what if its more dangerous, we can plant trees there and beautify the city!!" And that is the mentality of the city administration...
