...and I had heard good things about Asheville, NC

No way I'm ever going there, now. This behavior reinforces my stereotypes about the south and makes me worry about being as far south as DC.

Firefighter charged with shooting at bicyclist

The cyclist was riding on a 'Level III' road 'best for experienced bicyclists used to riding in traffic.' maybe we should include 'and being shot at' in the Level III classification.

Transit Mash-Up

I guess I missed the boat on this one, but transit mashups are pretty dope. I was trying to put something like this together for my bike times. I figured it would have all these spindly arms sticking out where I could get the most speed up on major roads or bike lanes, while it would shrink back in some neighborhoods that were hard to navigate or had lots of stop signs....
In other news.... The neighborhood got a great walkscore. I guess I could see that coming.
