  • Thank You, Stranger In a Car! /  illuminateLA
    the car behind me slowly pulled up next to me into the 1 lane leaving plenty of room between us just as a car door opened right in front of me and into my handle bar It scarred the crap out of me and even though I was far enough left to not be hit I had a few inches between me and the open door I swerved to the left yelled and saw that the car that was next to me was also swerving over to his left to avoid me For a second I saw my right handle bar being clipped by the door me being flipped into reverse thrown in front of the car that was just passing me and being run over Phew Just an imagination If I would have been just a couple inches over to the right my ride would have ended bad If the car next to me would have squeezed me I would be possibly in the hospital now if not dead If the driver of this white vehicle reads this post I want to send him a quick Thank You Thank you for keeping your distance between us Thank you for keeping your eyes on me and reacting fast as you saw that door swing open Thank you for not squeezing me and honking at me when you saw that I took the lane Thank you Stranger in that white car on Thursday night on Burbank Boulevard Photo from www labreform org Burbank Blvd has no bike lanes but this was the only photo I could find that shows an accident in the door zone Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on Facebook Share on Google Share on Linkedin share via Reddit Share with Stumblers Tweet about it Subscribe to

  • The Rights and Duties of Cyclists – This video is GREAT! /  illuminateLA
    Posted 31 Mar 2008 by Enci in Everything Bike Metro No Plastic Utensils Thank You Recycling in Action at the Cactus Gallery 5 Comments Add Yours Zane Selvans 03 31 2008 16 09 1 Cyclists fare best when they behave and are treated like vehicles This is true but we have a lot more control over how we behave than how we are treated Preventing unsafe passing by controlling the lane is unfortunately not really possible Discouraging would be a better word I think 99 100 times the driver behind you gets the hint but every so often some yahoo decides to buzz by frustrated at being held back by a bike And then what are we supposed to do 1 100 of the time may not sound like much but it s once every couple of days of urban biking for me which is way to frequent to be comfortable or safe If only we all had helmet mounted cameras like these guys and could record and report the license numbers of the above mentioned yahoos Fred Camino 04 02 2008 09 12 2 Wow Very good video I have to admit often out of fear and just not knowing whether I had to right to or not I don t ride as if I m another vehicle I usually find my self riding as far to the right as possible and cheating by using sidewalks and stuff this video has given me a lot more confidence to just ride my bike on the street as if I was a car Miss Havisham 04 04 2008 01 18 3 Blogadena Pasadena Bloggers Picnic Softball Snark You are invited We don t have to see eye to eye We don t have to agree Let s meet up Sunnyslope Park

  • No Plastic Utensils, Thank You :-) /  illuminateLA
    utensils At the fair When my friend shares her lunch On film shoots they serve everything in plastic At Gallery opening parties At Theater opening parties I use my utensils all the time and now I bought three more so there is one in each of my bags The set includes a fork knife a spoon and a salt and pepper shaker in the cover I filled the pepper shaker with hungarian paprika Yum Whenever I use my camping utensils I wipe it clean with a wet paper towel or wash it in the bath room and I put it back in its cover and in my bag for later use I eliminated many many plastic forks from reaching the landfill or the ocean and I hope you will be inspired to do the same I carry the utensils on my back on my bike wherever I go Get these Boker Snac Pack utensils and show all your friends that you have solutions for more sustainable ways of living Let me know if you have other ideas on how to live a more sustainable life Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on Facebook Share on Google Share on Linkedin share via Reddit Share with Stumblers Tweet about it Subscribe to the comments on this post Print for later Bookmark in Browser Tell a friend Posted 28 Mar 2008 by Enci in Sustainability Action or In Action That is the Question The Rights and Duties of Cyclists This video is GREAT 3 Comments Add Yours Presley 03 29 2008 18 24 1 Nice post I live in the Bay area and have collected plastic debris from the San Francisco Bay for years Plastic cutlery is very common It s a bit deceptive cause most is made of dense plastic that
