Indisputable proof that second-hand smoke kills

The Surgeon General affirmed today what many already knew about smoking. Second-hand smoke kills and there’s no debate. The Surgeon General also testified that smoking sections do no good and said that, “Smoke-free environments are the only approach that protects nonsmokers from the dangers of secondhand smoke.”

I hope this means that some day soon, all states will ban smoking in public and the world will be a better place for cyclists and everybody.

Carrying the Minicard

card pouch I was dismissive of the minicard when it came with my new credit card. Like, “huh, what’s this lame thing.” But then I started carrying it in my Timbuk2 pouch and it’s very useful. I attached to my key ring, can get water and snacks on the go, have it for an emergency, and it’s my ID.

Saluting Jeannie Longo

Jeannie Longo, 1996 Olympic time trial

France’s Jeannie Longo-Ciprelli, the winningest female bicycle racer of all time, extended her legend over the weekend, taking both the French elite women’s road championship and women’s time trial championship, at 47!

They’re her 50th and 51st national titles. Can’t find any stories about it in English, but the French blogosphere took notice: La Flamme Rouge: Absolument incroyable. Le Blog de Sohra: …au fait, bravo à Jeannie Longo qui a 47 ans a signé le doublé (course - contre la montre) au championnat de France de Cyclisme. Belle preuve de longévité!

Above is Longo taking time trial gold at the Atlanta Olympics, where she also took silver in the women’s road race.

Portland Bike Trails

We rode the nearly complete Sweetwater bike trail in Portland on Sunday. We were almost lost until we met a local that showed us the way back to town and rode with us through the Hawthorne district, Mt Tabor neighborhood, and more.

When it’s complete, the Sweetwater corridor will offer a 40 mile loop to a town that’s already as bike friendly as you can get.
