Where it all began in 2003 - Dallas, TX.  The start of the Dallas event in 2009.

SA- it is peoples, not people. He is sensitive about it. And he has a whopping 39 posts- probablyRead More about bike riding.

Peoples- with an S- my comment was to VDMS, not you. She is so against our local hospitals forRead More medical care- i was just giving her an opportunity to arise from her crypt.

As a motorist and a cyclist, I think that the bottom line is common curtesy. That being side, commonRead More curtesy is a bit of a misnomer; not common at all. I have no idea what spawned the local "war of transportation", but cyclists and motorists tend to push each others proverbial buttons. Unfortunately, the results can be tragic.

Cyclists have a right to ride on the road, a right that goes way back before cars hit the pavement.Read More And I totally agree that there needs to be a lot of common courtesy between cyclists and motorists. But however you phrase it-- ride somewhere safer is the same as stay off the road. People who ride mountain bikes love to ride mountain bikes, but a lot of us love the roads and quite a few use their bikes as transportation. That goes back before people started commuting with cars.

I think this is great! Cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians ALWAYS have the right of way, noRead More matter what! People need to remember we share this world for the short time we are on it. A little patience and courtesy go a long way. :-)

1. Obviously you have an ax to grind, on top of that you're lumping ALL "motorists"Read More together. 2. Only the life of a govt worker/politician and in particular law enforcement has value. The life of a typical citizen is highly expendable - you're obviously very naive. The US is a police state, the average citizen exists merely to provide tax dollars to the criminal govt employee unions and as target practice for the police. 3. The "system" couldn't care less if an average citizen on a bike was run over by a Mack Truck. Well, unless of course the prison union can make some money off the resulting carnage. Oh yes, there's a hater here alright - and the hater is YOU!!
San Diego closed its streets to cars and let bicycles take over, let's do this in Temecula, Temeciclovia anyone?
V.W.D.S. August 12, 2013 at 02:11 pm
I would not support this. We are NOT San Diego. We are NOT Riverside. We are Temecula and IRead More seriously do not want bicycles taking over ANYTHING. Pedestrians, yes. Bicycles, NO!! Nothing but bad experiences to report with rudeness and arrogance of cycle riders. We already shut the streets down for parades and for Rod Run. We don't need a cyclefest you suggest.
Rick Peoples August 16, 2013 at 09:56 am
These open streets events include walkers, roller bladers and others if you don't want to cycle. TheRead More idea is to get people out of cars and reconnect to their community. No one likes rude and arrogant people, whether they are cycling or driving, agreed.

wish oh how I wish Wineries and City of Temecula itself invested in a SAFE guarded Bike Path to theRead More Rancho California Rd (down to the wineries). One that is away from the cars themselves , along side the road, but inward. With a barrier between the Cars and the Road. It is TOO dangerous to bike between wineries due to the WINE BUZZ. What that would do for LOCALS.... Increase health value, and a draw for more Local involement.

Thanks Rick for your article. What you saw at UCSB is the result of 3 things: the 1960s design ofRead More campus that separates motorists from pedestrians and bicyclists, the nearby student housing in Isla Vista, and work of an Associated Students Bike Committee that carefully spends student-assessed fees on safety and facilities. Studies show that students who bike or walk to school perform better than those who are driven or bussed, so everybody benefits. Check out www.bike-santabarbara.org for bicycling visiting info.

Kudos to everyone who built that system. And we have a very active Temecula Bike Train to encourageRead More kids to ride bikes to school with an adult leader. Maybe we can get them to start cycling early and keep cycling all the way through UCSB and beyond. I truly believe young people see bicycles, walking and public transportation as the future.

Please widen wine country roads and give the cyclists space to stay off the road and stop competingRead More with vehicles traveling 55 mph. It's insane when they ride 3 and 4 abreast, on a corner, with drunk winos too busy texting about the fab grenache to watch the road.
Rick Peoples April 24, 2013 at 01:30 pm
That's a great idea. Not just a wider road, but a separated bicycle lane starting on RanchoRead More California Road in Old Town all the way to Wine Country. Imagine riding through the most beautiful part of Temecula without trying to avoid the traffic doing in excess of 70 mph a few inches from your elbow. It would be great for tourists, and great for local families with kids. Right now, it's not recommended unless you go very early in the morning before the drinking starts, and in Temecula, that's pretty early.

Does anyone else have to wait for "approval" before they can comment or is it me?
SPB April 26, 2013 at 05:47 pm
better wear 2 just to be safe!
SPB April 26, 2013 at 06:08 pm
i think its everybody. I've had posts sit in the "approval" purgatory for days beforeRead More being posted. I come to this site maybe once a week as opposed to my former daily level because not being able to contribute to conversations has made a large part of this site pointless.
