Santa Fe campus of St. John's college from 85 to 87 for Frosh and Soph
years. Had some fun times riding up the hill to campus. Maybe there
is something to reading all that Greek stuff about creating the
just state, civic responsibility and The Good. Maybe we can blame
reading Kant and the categorical imperitive. When you think about it
the catergorical imperitive (i.e. the Golden Rule in philosophy
speak)is pretty similar to the eco statement that we need to analyze
technology by asking the question 'what if everyone did this'?
On the other hand, we know that Johnnies are just plain Nutz. ;)
...and you have to be a little unusual to ride to the grocery store in
February in Minnesota, too.

busy street. One of my cycling friends in town (an LCI) told me I
should wear Terry women's cycling skorts and otherwise try to look
female on the bike. Lauren says when she looks feminine, motorists are
much more accomodating. Yet another reason for men to shave our legs.
I'm slightly built so I could probably get away with it.
Lauren (not Lauren Cooper in this group) is a serious atheletic road
cyclist, but I've also seen her putter around town wearing long skirts.

seems that they are more intrusive, the feeling of being threatened
for attack is increased because it's a girl on a bike instead of a guy.
I suppose it might depend just on where one is riding.
