How do they handle entering and exiting that central bike lane?

This woman is oddly creepy, but starting at 1:00 the video show the
approach from the Washington side. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oB61GrLiX3M

Indeed creepy. I always wondered what the fun is for a recreatinal ride
on that kind of roads with cars buzzing by left and right. Would drive me crazy.

Lou


Well as far as the bridge, it's a way to get between Washington State
and Vancouver BC. I assume the point is for her to go for a ride around
Vancouver. Maybe she's going crab cakes in Stanley Park...


I think the bridge goes to Vancouver WA, not Vancouver BC.


Yeah, I was mistaken. I was thinking of Vancouver Island.


No bridges going there either :-)

Nice ferry from Port Angeles, WA. It feels like an ocean voyage. I did it
on a bike tour -- you lash your bike to the rail. Speaking of islands and
ferries, this is a fun little ride on Bainbridge Island:
https://cascade.org/rides-major-ride...-details/route The
bike herd piles on to a ferry and then rides up and down a bunch of little hills.



I took the Victoria to Port Angeles ferry as part of a bike trip that went
from Vancouver to Cictoria, then through the Olympic peninsula, across
Whidbey Island, and up from Snohomish back to Vancouver. Great fun.


It's like a 90 minute ocean voyage. A long time ago, I had a week-long trial in Port Angeles during the summer, and after court every day I would ride up parts of Hurricane Ridge. Very pretty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqPcULMjMTE Small towns are weird places to try a case -- a distant cousin of one of the parties was left on the jury. Everybody knew everybody.

How do you deal with "everyone knows him, he's a good boy."?


Peremptory or strike for cause, but if the whole venire knows a party or parties, then you could move it to a different county -- but this was a small commercial dispute and certainly not worth the effort. The distant cousin was a distant cousin, and if he got bumped, someone dreadful would have gotten on, IIRC. It was no big deal, just an oddity of a small town civil trial.

-- Jay Beattie.

I was on a jury where the trial was for a man who tried to rape his 15 year old daughter. On the second day they made a deal with the judge. It was pretty plain to them what was going to happen when the entire jury was about to turn into a lynch mob led by an old black lady.
