If the title of this post drew you in because you care about Vehicular Cycling or Cycle Driving or any of those crazy notions about roads being shared without special paint or lanes or infrastructure, you are in for a real disappointment, despite the fact that bikes and roads and cars are nowhere near mutually exclusive.

Peace :)

Steve A has strange worries, how he gets a cement truck and dog poop mixed up is beyond reality: Birds fly.

Dog Fart! Welcome back, man! You haven't commented here since early days... although Steve's comment made sense to me. Birds fly? What? I love you, man.

OMG ... I have had this same experience.

Also, wow! You are able to control concrete trucks with the power of your mind (and your soothing, soothing, relaxation-tape-narrator voice)! Awesome!
