Interesting Tidbits on Biking

Supposedly the State of Georgia passed a law authorizing a new “Share the Road” specialty license plate for cars. I think it’s a neat idea. I’ve been thinking about getting an Amateur Radio Tag (and license) just because the fees are smaller. I figure the $250 I save on the tag over the life of a vehicle is nothing to sneeze at and makes it a good excuse to study for the exam. But, if I’m going to do that I would want to get the highest FCC license you can get so that I get the elite callsigns. I don’t have time to study for that, so it might be a while. Supposedly they won’t start making them until at least 1,000 are ordered, but I haven’t found any information on ordering them. Anyway, as long as my car looks nice, I hesitate to put decals and stickers on it. A license tag, however, seems like a nice place to promote a cause.

In other biking news, I read an article today about a bike messenger in Canada who won the right to deduct extra food expenses as “fuel.” Supposedly he uses more than 4,000 calories a day. Here is a good link or if that fails, just Google for “Alan Wayne Scott vs Canada”.
