Did you lose a bike?

I got a call from a good customer this morning. He said he's got a fixie that he found in the road last night. It's silver and has drop bars. If you think it's yours, get in touch with me- bozeman.bike@gmail.com. Then get a lock, mmmkay?

Seems suspect.

Idaho Stops Coming To Montana?

Says Robin Hamilton, sponsor of HB68, which would legalize Idaho-style stops: " I think it’s going to die. The cycling community didn’t show up at the hearing to support it."

Huh? Mr. Hamilton, next time you introduce a bill that directly involves Montana's cycling community maybe do a Google Search for cycling groups in Montana and maybe send out a couple of emails. I found out about this from someone on Twitter who's in Portland!

Ok, so now that I've got that out of the way, HB 68 is an attempt to emulate a law that Idaho has had on the books for 27 years. Under the law, bikes are allowed to roll through stop signs (provided it's safe...duh) as if they are yield signs. Essentially, this legalizes how most people ride, and I'm fine with that despite my normal position that the fewer special rules for bikes, the better. As far as I know, they are not attempting to include wording that allows cyclists to treat red lights like stop signs (as in Idaho).

Anyway, here's the original bill (pdf), and a list of representatives, so you can find yours.
Send out some emails, show our representatives that yes, cyclists do give a shit!

Sorry, you are not tough

You are not tough.  At least not as tough as this Mountain Dew machine located in the Amtrak station in Havre, Montana.
