Book Description

 October 19, 2012
365 is the number of days you can ride your bike in Chicago or any other city. This book covers all of the important things your 4th grade teachers left out about using a bike through all four seasons including warm, cold, hot, windy, snowy, sunny and rainy weather. Explore how to find the right bike, how to take care of it, and “the art of gear” for winter riding. Ride away with tips on how to ride safely and efficiently, including how to carry groceries and other items.
Taught by Dan Becco 773-784-6542
He has been biking 365.25 days a year for 14 years in Chicago... and counting. Throughout this time, he has learned valuable tips and tricks, purchased countless useful (and useless) gear, and has assembled a bible’s worth of knowledge for eager cyclists.

I remember Dave G's book had a diagram of where a windshield is most vulnerable to a U lock.  I though that was a literary dick-move.

I'm failing to recall many specifics, but definitely remember being a little surprised at DG's advocacy of swinging a lock at a car in response to a driver's aggressive behavior (I'm blanking on specific circumstance put forward in this example). 

Sometimes I do the "drinky drinky" sign and point to the motorist.

I use to say "I love you" to drivers, but if it had a tone of sarcasm it wasn't too good.  Now I gesture with the "call me" hand sign. It is probably confusing to drivers but at least they do not get angry and just sit there and think, perhaps, what is with that? which I think is fine. Making a driver think is good.

I've never swung at anyone with a u-lock, but in the case that I might be holding one while a car has purposefully put my life in danger by way of threatening maneuvers of their vehicle, I would not feel like a dick for using said u-lock to smash their window nor would I call anyone else a dick under similar circumstances.

That's revenge, not self defense.  Not the way of a peace, brother.

No.

Thank you for the reminder that there are people out there who feel entitled to their violence.
