Defiant or just stupid?
Tuesday, Feb 01, 2005
Driving to work on 280 this morning (at normal I-280 speeds) I watched a woman in the emergency lane, pedaling away on her tenspeed, headphones on and colorful hemp purse over her shoulder.

Cupertino and Sunnyvale have as many bicycle lanes as anyplace I've ever lived. Why tempt death pedaling 5 feet from vehicles travelling eight times your speed? Besides, the first highway patrol car would land her in the back seat and her bicycle in the trunk.

If you like it, please share it.
