Marin Mountain Bikers call foul as they are demoted in County discussions 
Cut out of the Loop?
Read this article from the Marin Independent Journal to make your own opinion. (Also See the video from the perspective of some passionate riders)

You have to check out the super-heated discussions in the comments section. If you thought Mountain Bikers were evil...see the hatred unleashed upon them by "road bikers, pedestrians, and equestrians".

Peace on the trails is all I want because it reflects the proper harmony that we look forward to seeing in our outdoor ecosystems. And environmental protection is always Paramount, always.

Illegal Trail Rats make us all look bad... 
The ecosytem is much more fragile than appears.
Allegedly two individuals were using an illegal trail in Novato and committed the cardinal sin of mountain bike riding. While roaring down the trail they ended up heedlessly scaring two women on horseback that were peacefully and lawfully using the trail.
Subsequently the scared horses reared up and one of the women was majorly injured. One of the horses was so scared it ran off. The kids tore through the scene with no respect. The women pleaded for help but the young riders rode off. These youngsters were very bad, and they left a "man down" on the Trail. Never do this please. Deplorable actions, the kids need to come forward so all Karma can be rectified. Check the video of the chopper rescue.

Tour of California starts this weekend 5/14 
Is Levi racing?
We need to elevate this race to "Tour de Calfornia" status.

Just ran into the new Google Maps Street View Car in Sausalito! 
It's been pimped out with sweet graphics
I am so stoked that I finally had a meeting with the Google Maps Street View car/bot. It happened this morning on my way to Work in Sausalito. I tried to get a picture, but of course my camera had no room on the SD card...AAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHH. The driver (cool asian dude) was nice enough to slow down and give me a good look of the rig. He gave me the cartographer nod too. Being a mapping/GIS dork I get really excited when I see this kind of technology in action. The sensors were consuming and organizing massive amounts of data before my very eyes. I can't wait to see this data updated to the google maps site, maybe I will even see my stupid grinning mug :)

To SMART or not to SMART? 
That is the question.
The endless Catch 22 scenarios that have plagued the SMART project continue on. This editorial from the Marin IJ is the latest chapter.

Going Green and riding electric bicycles made in Sausalito 
Popular themes at the Marin County Fair

Pi electric bicycle company, out of Sausalito, rocked the Marin county fair with their locally brewed technology. I was down in Santa Cruz this last weekend and I saw this woman bicyclist going over twenty mph UP a hill on her Electric bicycle. It was like a schwinn ten speed on steroids! Check out Pi bikes when you get a chance. The beauty of the Pi bikes are that they are built sustainably with 60% recycled metals, etc. sourced correctly, and assembled in the USA with only a fraction of foreign made parts. Putting even more green power into the overall ecological/carbon impact of the bikes construction and operational life cycle.
