Have learned that riding a bike on public roads gets harder and harder every year both streets and multi-lane highways. Signs, stupid drivers, traffic cops, speed traps, hidden photo radars. What will be next brilliant invention to protect the safety of general public from the potential(?) law breakers? I might spend more time practicing piano in my cozy room than riding for the coming summer. Here I find endless freedom of expression any how.

Maybe we should be recognised and registered as a legitimate persecuted minority. Maybe get some religious or minority exclusions like no tickets on Religious holidays or a cop cannot touch you or he will defile your holiness. I am sure we can think something up. one of my patients set up an upright fag end and called it his GOD and no one could touch it because he claimed religious exlusivity - Until i told him he was full of Bullshit. he laughed and agreed and admitted he was winding staff and psychiatrists up to get his own back. i didn't say anything and he kept up his charade and game for ages. Have to think something up. Put a Voodoo doll or shrunken head with pins on your tail end keep people back. junie

Take the country roads. Nice scenery and very little traffic. Stay out of the city if you must and off the highways. We always do the country roads while north.
