Life life aloof

I originally did this post in 2014 – I was undiscovered then and received no likes at all I see. Maybe this time – nudge nudge (smile)

Life and Random Thinking

Yestflintstoneserday I drove up the valley to Kelowna.  I really notice the difference between the drivers here and in Kelowna.
In Penticton, my usual complaint about my fellow citizens is for them to stop dragging their feet and drive! I am not an aggressive driver, and my daughter would probably say I toddle since I usually drive about the speed limit. The frustration is the number of people in Penticton who drive the BELOW the speed limit EXCEPT on side streets.

stop sign I wish people would just crawl along on side streets but some people in my neighbourhood, pound on the gas pedal regardless of the number of yards to the end of the street, and the requisite semi-full stop.

In Kelowna, the drivers are all in rush, they drive along intent on riding on the bumper of the car in front of them. They drive like they are in…

  1. Well I broke the zero count for this post David! You’re talking to the wrong guy,I don’t own a car and haven’t driven one in over 20 years,….and never will. I get around by bike only.
    It’s a win, win, win scenario! Great for the wallet, great for your health and great for the environment!

      Thanks Wayne. I love that you are a cyclist like myself. You are right about the wallet and owning a car absolutely. Would you buy an ecargo bike? Absolutely correct about speed and populations also – I agree completely. Take care my friend. – David


      • I don’t think so David,E-bikes are for people who normally do not ride bikes.

        I ride bikes a lot but I enjoy the ebike experience. I think ebikes can give seniors who are not strong enough for regular bikes the freedom to return to cycling and climbing hills. Some ebikes are used for delivery using cargo bikes. I think ebikes can also be used by security personnel to quickly respond in crowded urban situations. I miss riding my regular bike though, the threat of rain never deterred me when I rode it exclusively. I hope you have a smooth week. – David
