A fave for http://www.wenger-2-rad.ch/

This is a blog post to say thank you to http://www.wenger-2-rad.ch/.

On Monday morning, I noticed that I had forgotten my bicycle lock at home. Since I don’t have a lockable place to store my bike near work, I hurried to the closest bicycle shop planning to buy a substitute. When I noticed I’d forgotten my purse in the same place where I’d left my bicycle lock.

Great way to start the week.

I usually attach my bicycle lock to my bike rack.

The owner of Wenger 2 Rad was kind enough to lend me a bicycle lock for a day. Without charge. Which is great, ‘cos I already own at least 3 bicycle locks and don’t really need a fourth one to forget.

Thank you Wenger 2 Rad. I appreciate the help.

e-bike rage, i haz it

I think i am developing a bad case of e-bike rage. Two days in a row, the same two e-bikes (bicycles powered by an electric engine) overtook me (cycling on a regular, muscle-powered bicycle) so closely, I thought they’d hit my bicycle handlebar.

This morning I was waiting at a red light. A car was standing in the lane next to me. Just when the robot lights changed to green, and i started to pedal away, an e-bike hurtled thru from behind between my bicycle and the car.

Next, just 2 minutes later, another e-biker on a black and white Cannondale had to overtake me in a small roundabout; while I was entering and exiting a roundabout. Kind of risky. Cos if i had taken the next exit, we would have collided.

And I am pretty certain I saw the same two e-bikers yesterday….

E-bikes are very popular here.

Please don’t overtake at junctions, robots or in roundabouts.

OK, thx bai.
