Nah e-bikers and electric scooters are at least one level above whichever the highest out of the pedestrian/cyclist/rollerblader group is because they’re basically motor vehicles which are inherently cool and good.

Guy ripping down the street on an e-bike? Hell yeah dude live your life.

Guy ripping down the street on a regular bike? Move over nerd get a life.

I like seeing couple ride a scooter together. There’s something romantic about two people living and loving in the city. Ever seen a two-person bicycle? Jesus christ, embarrassing.

And of course I'm in head to toe neon with Bret Hart glasses, duh. Neon fanny pack is where I keep all the phone numbers i get on my travels. Plus my chapstick.

Most of the Greenway is virtually empty. Really the Glenmore and fish creek are the only busy areas.

But if you want to cycle and do 30+ the roads are likely the appropriate place.

They really need to twin all of Glenmore

Oh if you are serious about cycling go out on the back roads and train, pathways are not for serious cycling. Commuting to work, getting to the back roads, and having a leisurely ride , yes.

Did you manage to get your charges reversed? Sounds like a nightmare.

Yeah, the merchant has finally completed reversing all of the charges, at least for me.

What a pain though! I was debating cancelling the card or just locking it, and went with locking it on the chance it was an honest error. Looks like a bunch of people did cancel, but that would have been a nightmare.

There’s a clown who drives one of those imports tuned and built exclusively to backfire as much as possible who lives or works down the street. And he literally drives down this residential road at stupid hard throttle just so he can lift off and sound like a wannabe drive-by villain down the street.

There’s stupidly loud obnoxious, then there’s…whatever this ####ing trend is in the car scene. What kind of subhuman not only thinks this is cool, but apparently gets off on driving like a ####.

Does he have a personalized license plate that begins with a “c”? We have one of those in the neighborhood. Every night in spring and summer. One of the reasons for getting A/C so we wouldn’t have to leave windows open.

I'll tell you all the Greyhound stories you want. You make a thread and I'll tell 'em all.

3 years I worked those lanes. Had to be the craziest, wildest 3 years of a young University Student's life.

Before you Graduate to the Helicopters? Its the Dirty Dawg.

And dont even get me started on 'Unclaimed Luggage Day.'

Bikes that require actual peddling are for the poor, common-folk and thieves.

There will come a day where the junkies will figure out it’s easy to steal bike batteries and recycle them for a profit. There’s gonna be a lot of upset chunkers when they have to pedal their enormous bikes everywhere.
