Daily Roundup: Weathering the NorCal storm

In Bicycle Commuting, Daily Roundup on October 16, 2009 at 7:43 am

BikeRadar was at Biketoberfest in Fairfax, Marin County, last Saturday too. Great report from Gary Boulanger, the “US editor” with the French name. More than $14,000 was raised for advocacy causes, and a superb time was had by all. You can’t beat October weather in NorCal.

Most of the time, anyway. From the Bay Area, where we’re visiting, check out the links re Tuesday’s mondo typhoon. Ten inches of rain in the Santa Cruz Mountains! People were asking me if it felt like home. I told them that 10 inches of rain in Seattle would be spread out over two months and the sun wouldn’t show the entire time. By Wednesday the sun was back out and things were drying out in 70-degree temps.

Check out the cyclist who almost got crushed by a tree (thanks to Cyclelicio.us for the pointer)

And tell me how this cyclist lived…

Have a great weekend! Ride safe!

  1. That collision on Haight — wow! I had originally heard it was a 7-11 truck.
