How our mobiles became Frankenstein's monster, resulting in EZ Biker doing SOLO rides!
After a ride this weekend, with a few of my (Use to be) cycling friends; I’ve decided I’m going to be doing MORE lone wolf rides. Not 10 minutes into our ride when one of their cell phones rang and we pulled over, because they had to take the call. A short while later, another cyclists phone rang and then still another's did. I REACHED MY LIMIT and proceeded to drop the group, like a brick, advising them, I’ll no longer stop my ride because of a cell phone call! Go ahead and take your call and hopefully you will catch up with the group(?) Well, then the group turned on me and said they will all pretty much pause riding if someone needs to respond to a call. Fine, then I’ll ride by myself, GOOD BYE! I've honestly had with cell phone addicts and don’t need their company when riding.
Upon arriving home I decided to do some research on mobile phones and how they continue to be a growing (DANGEROUS) addiction! You now have all those apps that can do just about everything, including maybe even providing you with a fantasy bike ride, sex or whatever. I ended up finding TONS of articles and stories about this growing concern; to which the following story: “How our mobiles became Frankenstein's monster” pretty much hits the target on cell phone addiction.
I have since had a few calls from my so-called cycling friends, apologizing and wanting to continue our ride meet ups. Ummm, don’t call me… I’ll call you!

A1A Cyclists and support vehicles… LISTEN UP!!! :-O
Well I missed the monthly Pinkie’s ride event today. due to some other plans. Apparently the ride went well; with the exception of the event sag / support vehicle by Josh at Atlantic Bicycles. Josh posted the following statement on FB today: “SOOO who would have thought that you could get a ticket for obstructing traffic while driving behind cyclists?” Ummmm, well Josh, congratulations you have received your wakeup call concerning bicycle related events and issues on A1A, beyond the Lighthouse Point bridge, heading North. I have gotten numerous emails and discussions concerning our beloved A1A between Pompano Beach and Delray Beach Florida. In a word, law enforcement is basically PISSED and FED UP with the certain cyclists impromptu gatherings… aka Mike ride from A1A and Commercial. Yep, that’s the ride I use to do on the weekends; but it just got too nasty with anal cyclists thinking this is their exclusive road to do and ride wherever they want to. A newer cycling club, Z-Motion use to abide by the law; but even they have slacked up. NO MORE MR. NICE GUY FOLKS! Local law enforcement are watching and waiting and will ticket those riding more than 2 abreast. I guess sag vehicles are in the same boat for that assertive enforcement; BUT… honestly, there’s the right way and wrong way to do that service. I have never enjoyed having the vehicle crawl behind me, for the simple reason, they are impairing traffic! Especially when you are on a one lane road, with traffic going either way. Needless to say local cyclists; better get a heads up and pay attention when on the road; especially on A1A!!!
