“If winter lasts much longer I’ll have to start undoing stuff just to fix it.”

I suspect some of us would be willing to drop some bikes by to work on.

Poll-curious?

I stand corrected. (I also didn’t know that Green Party wasn’t on the form, although it can be written in.)

First place I registered to vote was actually Wisconsin, where you do not have to declare affiliation or lack thereof!

I’ve been wondering if the polls would come back. It’s a great regular feature to check out other cyclists viewpoints – thanks erok, for starting them up again.

If “oversleeping” was one of the choices, I’d have picked it.

Too Cold and Too Hot should be separate categories. I definitely don’t like the heat, but cold doesn’t bug me.

equipment to help ride in the heat include friendly en-route gardeners with hoses, poorly set sprinklers, and those water spray things at various playgrounds. And you don’t have to carry them with you :D

Hmm, it appears that I can take the poll more than once. Does that mean I can also vote more than once?

@jeg – First place I registered to vote was also Wisconsin. After many, many years here in PA, I still think it is weird that I have to declare a party affiliation in order to vote in the primary.

swalfoort, that was explained to me this way: if you don’t register an affiliation for all voters, one party can organize and vote for the least electable candidate of the opposite party. So it ensures that only “party members” have a say in which candidates their party puts forward. Easily foiled by simply registering for the wrong party, but for some reason nobody does.

That could all be made up. I had some very creative teachers who tired quickly of my “well that’s dumb” opining in civics and history classes.

I registered as “R” long, long ago. Since then, the party has moved so far away from my views that I now qualify for that statement. Certain races are decided in the primary (Pittsburgh mayoral is the most notable), so sometimes it does matter.

[x] Don’t remember when I couldn’t. But many things I don’t remember. What was the question?


Mick

I occasionally try to teach a mid-20’s friend who still doesn’t know how to ride a bike. I’m very interested in hearing from folks who learned as adults.
