Cycling Committees, Jobs, and Clowns

Hi everyone. I’ve been a little lax in posting lately mainly due to fatigue. Not from biking, unfortunately, but from interviewing for a couple jobs the past few weeks (I start a new one tomorrow) – I pretty well over-prepare myself for stuff like this, so I’ve been sleepy a bunch this weekend.

The great news is that the new job is with the same company, so I still have the great 7 km commute to work. I can’t wait until I can commute in shorts and a t-shirt again. I miss the feeling of wind against my body that doesn’t threaten to freeze off important parts! Haha.

Thanks to BikeToronto.ca who has let Toronto cyclists know that the Toronto Cycling Committee is meeting tomorrow:

Monday, February 13, 2006 at 7:00 p.m.
Committee Room 2,Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. West.

Next week will also see some sub-committee meetings.

A humourous thing that I came across in January reading about cycling issues in New York City (which I don’t believe I posted here) is about the Bike Lane Protector Clowns. That link goes to a great Village Voice article, and Martino recently posted a video about it, which reminded me of it. My favourite part is that their clown hats are little orange traffic pilons.

I’d love to see a bunch of clowns biking Toronto, shaming bikelane parkers (my personal pet peeve is WheelTrans buses always parked on College St. just west of Bay) into moving!
