    They Bike for Work

    Saw this pic of Google Street View cameras in Germany (NY Times, but article was unrelated) and thought it would be interesting to see other pedaling workers if you come across any.

    Police on bikes are actually a fairly common occurrence on the boardwalks in NJ, and I've even seen a few rolling through the state capital. As for whether or not I've felt more safe, well, that's up for debate.

    What I will say, is that in some shore towns, speed limit/cycling laws are very strictly enforced, with people getting pulled over for going 26 in a 25.

    Rider needs a Top Hat-Helmet, Black Jersey with printed shirt front and tails and gray striped bike shorts or pants for cooler days. A black with gold pinstripe treatment and brass colored side lights would be nice too.

    Not quite ready for this ride yet, but then who ever is?

    If you take "work" pretty loosely:

    Cops: Woman robs bank, makes getaway on waiting bicycle - Times Union

    Best part: "After leaving the store [actually a bank], she jumped on the back of a silver BMX bike, driven by a male, and headed east on Eastern Parkway." Finally, we are are equivalent to drivers.

    I wonder about this: "It may also perhaps be of interest to note that the great majority of cyclists are practically teetotalers.” Maybe that is relative to regular infantry getting plastered as often and for as long as possible? Is so, then any judicious alcohol consumption is considered "practically a teetotaler"? An imbibing alcoholic cycling commuter probably has a pretty short life expectancy.
