Yes, I am. Because that's what I do. I do expect people who call themselves hikers to actually hike. No, it isn't "hiking" if you drive all the way there and then walk up a hill for a few minutes. Get /fit/ and get /out/ or go home, pleb.

underground highways with a local tunnel lanes cut and cover and express tunnels drilled by tbm below
get rid of hov lanes they are communist
more school buses
upgrade the old spanish trail into a trench highway to serve uptown
convert the red line into a monorail
negative tax incentives for surface parking and positive tax incentives for structured and underground parking
expansion of the houston pedestrian tunnel network
creation of more pedestrian bridges between office buildings downtown a la +15 in calgary
create a green belt at conroe in the north, beaumont in the east, west columbia in the southwest and columbus in the west
fill in the rest with transit oriented suburbs served by suburban train lines and upgrade national highways in the developed areas in controlled access highways with proper intersections
give incentives for the construction of high rise mixed use buildings near transit nodes

the city is unsalvageable and should be demolished

News from the Province! The Province notes that the prices of both the SSE and DRL have soared beyond there original projections (to the surprise of no one surely.

Scarborough Subway Extension:
>The Province is Committed to a 3 stop extension

Western Extension of the Crosstown to Pearson:
> The Province proposes the extension be underground instead of at grade or elevated

DRL:
> The province proposes the line be delivered in a way that would make it independent from of Line 2 (i.e. no using Greenwood Yard). The exact details are unknwon although maybe the DRL is built with Overhead Power instead of third rail?

Yonge North Extension of Line 1:
> The Province proposes the plan continues in conjunction with the DRL.
>>
>>1304742
DRL is gonna be like the eglinton line i bet. Just a tunneled LRT. Could use the eglinton yard i guess
>>
>>1304820
That's a possibility even though LRT is hilariously unsuitable for the DRL. Its interesting they refer to Line 2 as outdated, however what they mean by that is anyones guess. Hell what they mean by "using a different technology" for the DRL is a mystery. It could be an LRT, it could by another RT style line or something entirely different. I am under the assumption that the Province has no idea what its talking about and its inflating and complicating these projects as a way to not have to build them due to increased cost.

It was all in one go without sleep, yes, though I finished late at night/early morning the next day, so it wasn't technically one day if we're being literal.

Similar to your pic related with a drop handlebar clamped into it so I can rest the bike's top tube on the stand and not clamp it in. However, I usuelly just hang my bike's saddle on my barbell on my power cage. I'll take out my stand if it's something more involved like a bb overhaul or whatever.

I have the PCS-10. It's solidly built. The only thing I have that even remotely resembles a complaint is that when you loosen the clamp in the back that allows you to rotate the bike vertically, the two plastic pieces sometimes stick together and need a little encouragement to loosen and rotate. Other than that it's a great workstand.

why do cyclefags hate drivers so much when drivers hardly, if ever, notice when bikes are on the rode?
31 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
>>
Speaking as someone who has been riding motorcycles as well as bicycles for decades, I can tell you all that the main reason drivers end up colliding with cyclists or motorcyclists is that while their eyes 'see' them, their brain does NOT 'see' them. This is a *driver training* issue; they're taught and trained to 'see' other motor vehicles, but not enough attention is paid to training them to 'see' and 'acknowledge' motorcycles and bicycles.
Of course this deficiency in their training is then exacerbated by some cyclists riding like the Rules Of The Road don't apply to them and/or not having situational awareness.
Personally, having spent so much time riding motorcycles on the roads in all different conditions, as well as bicycles in all different conditions for so many years, I pay attention when riding any two-wheeled vehicle at least as much as I would driving a car -- and when I'm driving I'm always aware of two-wheeled vehicles in my vicinity.
Really, though, I hate to tell you all, but if you're on a bicycle, *you cannot expect anyone to give a damn about your personal safety except yourself*. Think and act at all times like *nobody sees you*, and NEVER assume that they *do* see you. *THINK* about what you're doing before you do it.

My favorite thing that I love to hate when riding a bike? Four-way stop intersections, and drivers that clearly have the right-of-way, yet *insist* that I go first anyway. I literally put both feet on the ground, point at them, and *wave THEM through the intersection*. Don't let drivers make the Rules Of The Road confusing for anyone, ever.

>being this autistic
I yield the right of way to cars if they have the right of way, but if they wave me through and there's no other cars coming, I wave to them as a thank you and I go. If you do anything other than this, you are a massive autist. And not the good kind of autist.

>If you do anything other than this, you are a massive autist. And not the good kind of autist.
Screw you.
>he trusts drivers way too much who don't even know they have the right-of-way
I'd rather have the car go first rather than take the chance that they think the opposite and just hit the gas thinking it's their turn. Fuck your insult, you're out of line.

You take a bus, and board it on stop A, leaving on D.

So, A --> B --> C--> D.

How many stops are left untill you reach your destination?
2 stops left, since neither B nor C are of interest, and you leave at D, putting the emphasis on the interaction you have with each stop; or 3, making D the third stop, following a purely mathematical logic?
>>
Seven.
>>
There are either:

"3 stops left" --> in this case you measure the distance in sections between stops, so: A --> B = 1 stop, + B --> C = 2 stops, + C --> D = 3 stops in total.

or

"2 stops before we get off" --> in this case you count the number of stops you pass without getting off the bus, this is an easier way to explain it to an impatient child.


Just saying "2 stops left" means that you get off at C.


You could also call the whole trip from A to D a "journey along 4 stops".
