‘Twas Gil Lig, and the slimy trolls did mire and ramble…
I am hoping they start installing stations along key parts of the bike trails. I think that could rapidly extend the system. It isn’t hard to go from downtown to Antrim Lake in 30 minutes using the Olentangy Trail.
10 miles in 1/2 hour = 20mph avg. on a CoGo bike? I don’t think so.
It’s a nice bike ride as well. I led a group there last month with the easiest route I ever planned: bike path to Groveport, then Lithopolis Road to the brewery.
Yes, I heard it’s soylent green. Delicious!
I heard the taste varies from person-to-person. /futurama
The last Tara Reid movie I saw was the Uwe Boll opus Alone in the Dark. Her method for playing a scientist was to wear thick-framed glasses.

It takes a certain level of skill to pull off the self-aware, ridiculous b-movie thing. If not done ‘correctly’ it just ends up being a big pile of suck.
Very true. The company responsible for this mess, The Asylum, had a much more riff-worthy knock-off with Transmorphers (aka Terminators: Fall of Man). Here’s a review of that one.[/url] As Joel and the bots said, “They just didn’t care.”
I’m still waiting for a Richard Cheese booking.
My bad movie group has this tagged for a riffing session on Sunday night.
My End of the World Bike got me where I wanted to go, in less time than it would have taken to walk, and for a lot less money and agitation than making multiple stops in a cab. I did not turn an ignition key or drive myself bananas trying to park. Nobody yelled at me that my bike was destroying civilization. When I was done with my End of the World Bike I parked it in another bike share station. The whole experience was rather simple. I believe this is the point of the bike.
Averse is also a pretty strong word, and I wouldn’t consider myself bike-averse. What I have in my basement at home is a mountain bike frame with no wheels. There’s no point in getting it out of the basement.
I actually rode a friend’s bike last week for a quick errand (first ride in 6-7 years) and it was a lot of fun.
Vocabulary lesson learned. It’s the 6-7 years time away from cycling I was referring to. Welcome back to cycling. Now only if there was a program to provide bikes for rent in downtown. : )
Sorry, I meant ‘averse’ as in reluctant to get your bike out of the basement. My mistake.
Walker himself doesn’t ride a bike. He’s a walker, not a biker. :-)
Damn me for having my opinions.
edit: That was impolite of me. I apologize (but it is a useful product for the intended use). The polite reply is that if one needs to go point to point, the better option is to bring one’s own bike. CoGo will be in its infancy, and I’m sure adjustments will be made to fine-tune the program. Even at this initial stage, a decidedly bike-adverse Walker could think of scenarios where the program can be useful to him.
Again, I apologize.
