Firstly- I’ll be damned if mendocino chardonnay doesn’t go swimmingly with frozen potato blintzes! Who’d 'a thunk?
Secondly- Isn’t presidents day great? a day off to goof off in the rain. Now if we can only get a president who is worthy of the holiday( if the economy is in the tank…bomb Iraq!)
Thirdly- Has anyone had an actual run in with the law whilst MUNIing? I ask because the laws regarding unicycles in oregon aren’t crystal clear. Is a unicycle considererd a bicycle by law where you live and can you ride where bicycles are prohibited? There is certainly a fundamental difference between uni and bi, but will a judge see it the same way? I have communicated with a lawyer from the BTA (bicycle transportation alliance) here in stumptown, but all he said was that there has never been a case on the books regarding a unicycle disobeying bicycle laws. He advised that I take the safe route (cringe) and obey ALL bicycle laws. using the urban model as an example, The way I see it, This just can’t happen. A uni is simply NOT a bicycle. We cannot keep up with the flow of traffic in an urban environment, therefore, we cannot ride in the street. Paradoxically, we ride faster than pedestrians, there fore we cannot ride on the sidewalk. In the parks, does a unicycle create more damage to muddy trails than the boot of a hiker? Personally, I think not! So…If anyone has had any experience with the local law/ magistrate/ posse/ lynching mob, PLEASE SHARE!!
