Folders are hot!

The ugly ripple effect when a major retailer closes its doors.

Bicycle insurance: Idea whose time has come? With more folks, especially Gen/pick your letter/ers, relying on bikes only for transportation, maybe so. If it does happen it will tell us something about a major demographic shift. Insurance always runs the numbers first.

From a cop: Bicycles have a right to the whole friggin’ lane. Dave Wiens is coming to the Marin DirtBowl! Not many cyclists have gone head to head with Lance Armstrong and emerged the winner. Dave Wiens, the standout Leadville 100 retired pro, can make such a claim. Although it’s certainly a distinction in his long and glorious career, it’s far from his signature accomplishment, and Wiens is a generous, modest and exemplary representative for the cycling community. Be sure to join Wiens, the Marin County Bicycle Coalition and the NorCal High School Mountain Bike League for a big fundraiser ride starting 10:30 a.m. Feb. 7 at the golf course in San Geronimo. Don’t worry, you won’t miss the typically boring, overhyped football game where the commercials outshine the onfield “entertainment” — unless, like me, you want to. has more.

The Perfect Crime: If you’re out to kill someone but don’t want to serve any jail time, all you have to do is make sure they’re riding a bicycle at the time. What could be easier!
