I am updating after a long time

It’s been a long while since I’ve posted anything. I’ve come across a bunch of articles that I wanted to talk about but just never got around to writing anything about it. Mostly because I’ve been busy lately but that really is just an excuse for my laziness. Maybe I’ll start a “links of the week” post.

Anyways, what sparked my motivation to finally write a post was this article from NYTimes.

Almost everyone has heard the news of the NYC Critical Mass violence. Almost everyone have been a part of or seen bicycle violence. It’s ridiculous but even I have had my fair share of tussles with drivers in Philadelphia. I actually hate all of the drivers in Philadelphia, myself included. But as the article pointed out, drivers are only learning to cope with the increase in bikers. It’s something new and they don’t know how to handle themselves. The same could also be said about the bikers. Many of them are inexperienced when it comes to city biking.

Hopefully bikers and motorist will be able to co-exist soon. I’m sick almost getting hit.

    The problem is that the majority of the streets, even in Philly, were not and still are not being built to accommodate bikers. When I’m driving on a two-lane street with cars on both sides and traffic right next to me, having a biker taking up part of my lane is frustrating and troublesome.
