Oh my god. I love your bike commandments! Texting while riding a bike??!!

Thou shalt not ride thy bicycle on the sidewalk.

Thou especially shalt not ride thy bicycle on the sidewalk while coasting down a particularly steep hill.

(I'm a pedestrian and I have come so close to being mowed down by bicycles on so many occasions, mainly on SIDEWALKS!)

I don't ride very much any more, due to my general laziness, which is a shame since I would ride about 1,500 to 2,000 miles a summer while in my youth. I still get out every once and a while in the suburbs, but most of my experience with folks on bikes occurs now as I sit behind a steering wheel and not handlebars.

But . . .

Thou shalt take a shower for fuck's sake after thou hast done thy part for thine environment and cycled fifteen miles to thy working or studying place.

Thou shalt obey traffic rules when thou art on a narrow road with stopped traffic and there are no breakdown lanes. If thou must touch my car in order to pass me on the right or are generally obnoxious whilst the rest of us await the greening of the light, a vindictive G-d gives us the right to smite you.

And you shall take to heart the words which I teach you this day. Teach them diligently to your children . . . .

In other words, it's nice when you put a helmet on your kid--keepin' their brains inside their head and all, but if you don't wear one yourself, you pretty much tell your kid that his/her brains cease to be important after puberty.

Choose [helmets] that you may live, you and your seed!

You have to have a rule about the first rain of the year, to remind people that their brakes just won't work as fast (or at all, maybe).

And one about not even trying to outrun the bike cops!

And one about using a light at night. (I knew a guy who hit a curb head on riding at night without a light; he lost a kidney, as I recall.)

I got caught in Chem circle (do they still call it that) and had to go around twice once. Doh!

Awww, I'm missing the running of the bikes this year, having moved to Sac.

Also: thou shalt not wear a hood which cancels all thy peripheral vision

Thou shalt not smoke cigarretes while riding, especially if thou cannot ride one-handed

I admit to giving up wearing my helmet and to being one of those people riding bikes in that stretch of downtown. Forgive me my biking sins, for I have left that place!
