Keep at it a couple of weeks, and the soreness will be forgotten. A couple more weeks, and 3 miles will seem easy. It took me two weeks to go from fear and loathing of the track to eager anticipation. Now, I'm not quite addicted but I do get the shakes and become irritable if I miss a track day.

I wanted to rehab my knee so that it wouldn't hurt if I ran on it, and in general bulk up so I began weight lifting. Now that I'm getting the progress I want there I'm reintroducing running as an off-day exercise. Feels good to get back into it, just wish it wasn't winter and could run on an outdoor track where I remember my splits from my track days.

do a search on here and you should pull up a bunch of results. Else just ask in the wine thread.

Some dumbass pedestrian steps out from behind a big truck to jay-walk while the traffic is mostly stopped. The cyclist misses him by mere inches, thankfully the pedestrian jumped back almost immediately. What happened to look both ways?!?!




Why is it that cyclists just throw their bikes where they want, so you have climb over it, seriously sometimes you can't exit a train station, without climbing over 50 bikes.

Copenhagen has more km bike paths than any city in the world or some shit like that, even though I was almost hit by two cyclists on the same stretch of side walk two days in a row, there's a reason why we have side walks, bike paths and roads separately.

90% of all cyclists have never driven a car and have next no knowledge of basic road traffic laws, so they believe they can do what ever they want, driving against the traffic on a one way street, go through red lights, drive on side walk, park their shit leaning on cars, cycle while, texting, eating, listening to music all at the same time, they apparently can't read signs that say NO CYCLING in public parks, right of way, indicating etc. etc. etc. I just want to slap them and throw their bikes in to the harbour.

If drivers did shit like that they would get arrested with in 5 minutes.


The four things that pisses me of the most in traffic is.
  • Cyclists
  • Mothers with their trolleys
  • People who stop for no apparent reason, right in the middle of everything
  • People who don't keep right on the motorways etc.

Tokyo is the home of the bike ninja; riding in the wrong direction at night with no lights or refectors wearing a dark business suit, umbrella and cigarette in one hand while texting on a cellphone with the other. I am not joking or exaggerating in any way, I’ve seen it (barely) several times.

Also pedestrians here are soooo slow it seems like there must be diazepam in the breakfast miso soup and they walk in big mobs all trudging along at the same snail’s pace. Get out of my way you stupid fuckers. It actually takes more energy to walk that slowly because you can’t lever your weigh with momentum over each step you have to take a slight pause. If I had to be amongst them every day I’d go postal for sure.

  • Cyclists, (motorists, pedestrians, people in general)
  • Mothers with their trolleys (Check)
  • People who stop for no apparent reason, right in the middle of everything (Check, especially in doorways or the top/bottom of an escalator)
  • People who don't keep right on the motorways etc. (Check)

Naah motorists just run over and kill cyclists and then squeel I didn't see him and get let off!

It must be a cultural thing but most places in Asia I've been where there are a lot of bikes it seems that motorists, cyclists and pedestrians co-exist quite happily. Can't say the same about western countries, in Denmark I felt that pedestrians and cyclists hated each other, the Netherlands was similar although probably not as bad.

What's worse in driving down a semi-rural road in Florida and there's a black guy in dark clothing walking on the side of the road. Holy crap guys, wear appropriate clothing. If I'm ever traipsing around the artic, you better believe I'm wearing some dark clothing.

The Danish road traffic laws are set up, so it's always the drivers fault, if the hit a softer road user, even if the cyclists runs a red light and you are the fifth car entering the intersection on green, the worst part it's bye bye license, it you hit one in that situation.

Hate is not strong enough and the funny part is, that cyclists hate other all other cyclists especially when they are walking, the other day someone knocked another cyclist over, on purpose.

I had a woman yell at me while I was crossing a cross walk, the funny part was, that she was on the far side, so it had passed two lanes of traffic before I got near her and apparently it's was my fault that she had to brake. laugh.gif

That happens a lot here, too.

We have those and worse, we also have the same on tuned mopeds, there's nothing like walking along at night and the only thing you can see and here is the noise of a two stoke engine doing 60mph and then it passes you no lights, black clothing and it's on the side walk / wrong way down the road and then people wonder why so many young people die in traffic accidents.

Yeah, wtf is up with pedestrians who think they don't have to look both ways on a one-way? There could be bike-salmon, there could be somebody reversing for a parking spot, there could be a 90 year old man driving the wrong way. Just look both fucking ways and don't step out in front of somebody.

As an occasional after-dark bike commuter (well...in the winter I guess leaving at 5:00 makes you an after dark commuter), I want to punch fucking joggers who go out on the path wearing all black. Didn't their parents teach them anything? Wear something light and/or reflective if you're going to be in a poorly lit space after dark. Or get a damn blinky light for your shoes or something--its not like you are against running with electronics since you have some earbuds in your ear cranked loud enough that you can't hear anyone else sharing the path with you.
I guess by that metric I also want to punch cyclists who ride on the lakefront path at night in dark clothes with no lights. You can get perfectly awesome knockoff knog blinky lights from deal extreme shipped for like $5. I keep a pair on my commuter bike that I have permanently attached by looping a bunch of thread through a hole I drilled in the plastic--sure someone could still steal it, but they would need something sharp and it hasn't happened yet (and if it does, I will still have gotten 2 years of service out of a $5 set of lights).

Man...I think I just hate people.
