    XPOST: Stop signs in PDX

    The other post: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.ph...15#post1854915

    The original link: http://bikeportland.org/2006/05/11/p...int/#more-1275


    I'm guilty of the slow&go through stop signs around town but I feel that laws are in place, to some extent, to protect me as a cyclist.

    What gets me is that if I get caught rolling a stop sign, my punishment is ultimately going to be steeper than the kid who ran one and t-boned my wife this winter.

    Stop signs=Slow-n-go
    Red Lights=track stand practice

    I am a known scafflow however and have even been known to skech a ride or two and on Wednesday this week I caught an 8-block draft @30mph behind a Tri Met bus on Killingsworth

    You bad Snake!

    Just for fun, one could try that drafting thing on a road bike in Montana, behind a bus coming down from Lolo Pass on Hwy 12. Of course I was 19 and immortal when this happened, but experiencing 60+ MPH for about three miles was rather exhilarating. Of course I wouldn't advocate this for someone who has discovered that they are no longer immortal....... but if sanity should slip away for a few minutes........

    She don't care!

    So you're saying she can't find this site, or better, doesn't care to?
