- I ride >100 miles/week, because I enjoy it and because my knees will not tolerate any more long distance running (s/p 8 marathons). Riding up a 7-8% (or more!) grade is quite the workout.
-I stay in the bike lane, ride single file, wear extremely bright kit (hi-viz yellow/green), and I ride as if I am completely invisible to cars. I do ask drivers to please not drive in the bike lanes. If there are no bike lanes, I stay over to the side as much as possible, however cyclists do have a right to be there, and ask that you please give us the 3 feet of clearance as per law.
-I obey all, and I mean all, traffic rules. Yes, I stop at stop signs, traffic lights, etc.; just because I am not in a car doesn't mean I can ignore them; they are for everyone's safety.
-I do not try to ride on busy streets during rush hour; here in AZ (especially in the summer) I am out on the road by 5:30 AM, and am generally finished with my 50-60 miles by 8:00 AM
-I am not a "Lance wannabe," I wear kit because that is what you need to wear to reduce chafing, reduce wind resistance, carry essentials, pedal efficiently, and protect your head.
-I also drive a car, and I fully respect the rights of motorists. There will always be a few assholes anywhere...

losing an away game tends to be a pretty crappy experience, particularly when dealing with fans. The MMB went to Purdue in 1979, and UM lost that game (couldn't score from the goal line with time running out), and that game just sucked with the purdue "fans" really going after us as we marched away form the stadium. I had the great fortune of being in the MMB and seeing UM beat the buckeyes in Columbus 1978 and 1980, and the fans were actually nice to us as we were leaving their stadium.

That was exactly the time I was there for grad school- didn't even bother going to the games, but then the grad experience is entirely different from undergrad, especially coming from UM. Tulane recently finished building Yulman stadium, a 30,000 seat outdoor facility on campus.

Went in without reservations on a busy night, they offered us table service in the bar area. Fine, no problem, my wife had been a waitress in her youth, we understand. But what they did was get the hostess girl to wait our table, or at least tried to; she was obviously pissed off to the extreme that she should have to wait a table, and proceeded to do whatever she could to ignore, abuse, disdain etc., we couldn't even get served water. Eventually I asked for the manager and politely expressed my desire to apologise to the young lady for inconveniencing her. We declined having our meal comped, but it remains the only time in 30+ years I have ever not tipped a server.

Oh and btw- the admission to Westminster Abbey is totally worth it, even if you are not a history buff the place is fascinating.
