Community Volunteer, 09-15-2012

Joan Martin, a member and active volunteer with Tahquitz Creek Yacht Club, , on site for the monthly clean up of the Tahquitz Creek Wash.  I also met the Chief of the Poop Police and his trusty Poop Scout Dog who noses out the target poop sites.  They both have to remain anonymous as they go about their stealth duties.  DNA samples are taken along with photos of the perp poopers.  The civil disobedient poopers time for punishment is coming as the evidence of these crimes is gathered....
Today's ride: 19 1/2 miles, Hermit's Bench, out-and-back, .

Bike Parking Taipei Style

Just got back from a week in Taipei.  They have the best public transportation system I have yet experienced and bicycles play an important role.  The U.S. could learn a lot from the Taiwanese about moving masses of people efficiently.  More Taipei bike photos at: .
