    Ryan Leech Commuting

    Kinda a good video, so I thought I'd post it:

    Ryan Leech Commuter - YouTube

    It's Ryan Leech talking about commuting.

    Reach for the U-lock more and the car keys less.

    And practice that Stationary Lateral Fence Jump every day!
    I don't rattle.

    I found myself watching that wishing that I lived in a more urban area. Is that weird?
    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)

    I think I'd have cable locked the rear wheel, but maybe Vancouver has a lower theft rate. I know of one bike rack (at the library) not counting the not fastened to the ground one at the Y. Heck seal it and he bike(s) on it with a pickup truck. Nice bike lanes and MUPs. None of those here either. I've got to move. The first stop he did a better job of that 80% of drivers do here.

    nice vid. building up an urban road/light trail bike now. fenders, racks, panniers, storage for a beefy lock. for the next several months, that'll be the most riding I'll be able to do.

    You can come ride my commute with me in the Seattle area, CB. I don't think you'll be wishing for very long

    That was a nice video, good find. But I have to say I kept hoping to see him jump a fence or bench or something...

    Reminds me of "When are they going to get to the fireworks factory?" from an old episode of the Simpsons.

    It's a good video, but I'd love to see him redo one like this (although possibly more law-abiding):

    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/5ug4L4Xnwuw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    I believe the message at the end is "Cyclists meet many obstacles" or something similar.

    (and your opinion of the above video will likely depend on your attitude towards helmets, although after watching it I can't really argue that the dutch are doing it wrong.)
