A man caught trying to have sex with his bicycle has been sentenced to three years on probation.
This is the bicycle in question. And as you can see, it is quite...um...attractive.
Is it hot in here, or is it just me?

The actual show was in a tiny building and elbow to elbow with cycling fanatics. Lots to drool over. From what we saw at the show, touring bikes are back in a big way (or maybe they've just been hiding out in Oregon). Lots of cool custom racks and beefy touring frames. Vaughn and I ended up mostly ogling from afar (and actually, a lot of the fanatics had ridden up on bikes that we ogled outside), as it was nearly impossible to get into the booths to talk with the builders. But it was the journey that made it super fun… great weather and great riding around the cycling mecca that is Portland. I’m pretty sure the New York Times will be contacting Vaughn and his wonderful family for their next piece on Portland’s cycling lifestyle ;)

- Install bicycle lanes on Alaskan Way in Downtown Seattle (when Alaskan Way is
- Install bicycle lanes on Delridge Way SW.
- Install bicycle lanes, shared lane markings, and signs to improve the connections
between Capitol Hill and the UW Campus.

Seattle PI reports:
A West Seattle bicyclist is recuperating after someone shot him with a BB gun late Thursday on his regular commute home in what appears to be a random attack.
The BB pellets hit Peter McKay, 46, with such impact that one penetrated his left lung, releasing air into his chest cavity, and the second just missed his aorta and spinal cord.
