Man jailed for intetionally driving into cyclist

One of my friends alerted me to this article in the BBC News about a man who intentionally ran into a cyclist using a bus as the weapon! I guess the road rage is only getting worse as the automobile world ages.

If you ask me, I dont think 17 months jail time is not enough justice. I hope the cyclist sues the pants off this guy.

Biking on Abandoned Rails

This is a subject I have thought about before but never put much more into it besides an initial thought. But some other people/places have gone much farther with the topic. The folks over at Biking Bis had a nice post about the History of Railbiking.

This picture is from the Railbike Tours, Inc. website, where you can purchase a railbike or tour etc. Seems like a great idea doing the railbiking as another method of avoiding too much contact with automobile traffic when biking. But the mere hassle of trying to get permission from the rail owners makes this seem a bit prohibitive.
