Some Bicyclists Have A Death Wish

Before I get a lot of hate mail, this post is aimed towards “some” bicyclists that seem to be not very smart… not all bicyclists. Every so often I take Manchester Ave between El Camino Real and Encinitas Blvd in Encinitas, California. As a driver, I never look forward to this stretch of road since there are many blind turns (see below) and barely enough room for two cars. I worry about a car not taking a turn well and hitting my car in the process. There is also absolutely no shoulder on this road either.

RoadEvery time I’m on this road, usually during the weekend, I see many bicyclists on it too. Yes, I know bicyclists have just as much right to be on this road as I do, but there is absolutely no room for both a car and a bicyclist! As you can see from this picture, there is no bike lane either.

When I see a bicyclist on this road I wonder if they have a death wish. If someone hasn’t died on this road it will happen sooner or later. There have been many injuries and I’m sure there will be many more.

There are other roads to take to and from the ocean in this area, sure it will take longer to cycle, but isn’t exercise the point? So the next time you, a bicyclist, wants to take this road, I hope you think again. It’s not worth your life!

I took this picture on afternoon in Del Mar, California. All that is missing are the kids!

Kids, Please Listen to your Parents

I posted this today on Facebook, thought it needed to be on the web too:

Attention young people… PLEASE listen to your parents when it comes to limiting your sun exposure AND using UV protection! Like you, I didn’t when I was your age and now (like many others) I’m paying the price. When you are my age you don’t want to be dealing with skin cancer (or the possibility of it) which is not fun can lead to death. I know you think you will never make it past 30, but you will. Learn from us!

First Sunset of the Year

I took this picture right around 16th street by the beach in Del Mar, Ca on 1/3/2010. The San Diego area has the best sunsets I have ever seen!
