Two days ago, on 101, in the daylight at 8 a.m. I had to honk at a woman in a beige Kia who clearly was reaching down to pick up something on the floor of the passenger side of her vehicle. Several times she violently wove into the "pedestrian/bicycle" lane. It would have been bad news if there had been a bicyclist there, all because she had to pick something up while driving. And we all know how that ended for the bicyclist on 299, who was also a parent. I will take Jen's advice to get more involved in conversations about infrastructure improvement so that we all the right and freedom to ride bikes and run safely. Until that happens, I encourage all bicyclists and runners to take extra care. Because you never know when a woman in a beige Kia will drop her lighter and need to fish around for it, at your expense. (You know who you are wake and bake.)
I would really LOVE to have a long and slow commute on my BICYCLE on a trail adjacent to the 101 corridor, so that I might live to raise my kids and see my grandkids.
F the cars...I want ride my bike to Eureka, safely......
It's all about the meth. Get rid of the meth and you've calmed 80 percent of the problem.
I would wiff fermented vomit if it meant I could safely ride my bike from Arcata to Eureka and not be at peril for losing my life by some idiot who veers into the skinny little bike lane that is now what we are expected to ride on. As gas rises and rises in price, this trail will be essential to people who need to get to work on their own power.
People abandon and beat and abuse usually because they were treated this way.
Your expression of acceptance and love healed this situation. We can all do only what we can do to create peace.
Love one another.
I;m surprised the bud loving NCJ even reports on this activity.
Once again, I emphatically state, marijuana cultivation and sale does not, I repeat, does not lead to criminal activity and exposure to children.
