Daily Roundup: 3-feet-please legal test, Texans with broken shoulders, Kidical Mass returns, and more

In Bicycle advocacy, Bicycling, Mountain Biking, Obama Bikes, Rider Down on June 12, 2009 at 7:54 am

DrunkCyclist updates a Biker Down thread and legal test of 3-feet-please in Arizona. This is one to watch. See comments section as well. Key line: “He may not have meant to do what he did, but he is still responsible.” riffs on USA Today piece on Google’s move to put bike paths on Streetview. And reports on the Pedalpalooza kickoff.

Why can’t Seattle have something like Pedalpalooza? How come Portland gets all the cool bike events? I’m so jealous…

TechFlash: The cool thing about the iPhone is… if you want to bike it rather than drive it, there’s an app for that!

The Stranger: Dan steps out of his sheltered view of life and discovers what a real bike path looks like (these are coming to Portland as well and should have been on Stone Way North in Seattle before the city caved to business pressure…but I digress). Kidical Mass returns tomorrow!

What you get when you talk trash about Obama: Right winger Texas Gov. Rick Perry broke his collarbone trying to ride a mountain bike. What is it with Texas politicians and mountain bikes? Bush spent 8 years in office riding like a banshee and did squat for the status of bicycling, mountain biking and alternative energy. Perry goes around talking about seceding from the Union and takes a header… wait a minute! Doesn’t Lance live in Texas????

To be fair, Lance supported Obama and still broke his shoulder.

Rick Perry talks about his accident. I have to hand it to him, he did the right thing. He protected his bike with his body.

Some kind words about mountain bikers in The Aspen Times: “Mountain bikers are nearly all courteous, and quietly move through the trail without disturbing other humans, wildlife or the trail itself, under their own power….”

Have a great weekend! Now get out ‘n RIDE!!
