Open letter to the driver who struck a doe on this stretch of road, 1st October 2010, 6 p.m.

Open letter to the driver who struck a doe on this stretch of road, 1st October 2010, 6 p.m.

In the days when Nelson fought the battles of the Nile, Copenhagen and Trafalgar, the “C-word” - which no naval officer dare write in full - was “coward”. The word we replace with this euphemism in our own unenlightened times was then merely a wholesome and functional anatomical reference. Then, it clearly did take some gumption to sail a vessel of wood, rope and flammable sailcloth straight at the rear of an enemy fleet. Now, it seems, we are afraid to venture out far into the countryside without hermetically sealing ourselves in glass and steel. Only thus equipped dare we sally forth in our glorified, high-speed battering rams, sycophantically unhinged in our pursuit of dominion over all that lives.

Thus prepared for battle, hunched over the steering wheel of your BMW, or Mercedes, or perhaps it was a Range Rover with a wheel-base so wide that it scraped the hedgerow on one side, and straddled the white lines on the other, you struck a three-quarters-grown roe doe on this portion of road at 6pm on Friday 1st October. No doubt you were in a hurry to get home from work, or perhaps you were hoping to drink off some of your aggression down at the pub. Almost certainly, you had been driving too fast. Perhaps you hadn’t heard that an 85 year old woman had been ploughed down not a mile a way the previous week. Or perhaps you simply didn’t care. Hitting something when you are sealed inside a car is just the same as inadvertently squashing one of the good guys in a computer game: it’s unfortunate, but you deal with it in a state of detachment.

You didn’t stop.

I rode up and found the deer minutes later. She was skittering about in the middle of the road, as though the surface were ice and her hooves unable to gain purchase. I dropped my bike and ran up to her, and she lay still across those white lines. Two cars pelted past without stopping, as I dragged her to the grassy verge. When I laid her down, I saw at once why she was unable to stand: her femur was fractured – a sheer break – and the leg hung useless, at a crazy angle. Someone kind stopped behind me, and called the R.S.P.C.A.

It is the extraordinary courage of the deer in those next few minutes which was so impressive. She lay there, quite obviously summoning all of her willpower in order to remain conscious. At times, her head slumped to the grass, and her tongue lolled, but her eyes were alive and watching me all the time. Then her body began to go through paroxysms of panting. I thought – and half-hoped for her sake – that these were her death-throes, but in fact, they were physical evidence of a summoning of courage and strength. With a lurch, she hauled herself up on three legs, and dragged herself into the thorny hedge, where she could nurse her pain away from human interference.

Clearly, it is not important to you – what the vet was compelled to do when he arrived. It is important to me, however, that you should confront what you are. It is just possible that you cannot be blamed for hitting the deer; we’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. What are we to make of the fact that you did not stop to check that she was dead? Why did you make that decision? Did you not think it important? Were you more worried about whether she had necessitated a trip to the panel-beaters than you were concerned to succour her in her suffering? Were you just in too much of a god-damned rush? If two people had not stopped and called the vet, she would have lain there terrified in the middle of the road, until she was struck by some other monster clad in steel. Or perhaps she would have made it to the hedge by herself, and lain there for days, slowly dying of thirst, pain and starvation, until the circling crows came down mercifully to peck out her eyes. This was the decision that you made when you drove away: this, you thought, was best for her.

There is, of course, another possible reconstruction of your motives: you couldn’t face what you had done. Is that a more charitable assumption? Is it really? Poor diddums, driving away in your nice upholstered car, shedding a tear for the little deer you squashed on the road, not daring to look in your rear-vision mirror in case it was still alive and the sight should touch your heart. You are one of many, of course. People do this sort of thing every day. That is why our roads are littered with road-kill, one or two corpses every hundred yards, and every one of the killers too tender-hearted to get out and drag their victims to the verge. People will say it is excusable, but deep down, you know what you are.

You are a c - .

EBC Brakes DP31666C Redstuff Ceramic Low Dust Brake Pad

Low dust EBC Redstuff is a superb pad for fast street use and targets high HP imports, muscle cars and prestige european cars. EBC Redstuff ceramic pads reduce dust emitted by OEM pads by approx 80 percent. Redstuff pads also reduce rotor wear so that rotors and pads last longer whilst delivering great brake performance. For optimum lifetime in track use EBC still recommend drivers to upgrade to their Yellowstuff or even the new Bluestuff range but if fast street is what you need, EBC Redstuff Ceramic is the pad to choose.

Finally took the new Birdy bike down and added oil to the Rohloff Hub today after a long delay. Pacific cycles is really crap. They have no documentation with their products and the online PDF downloads are a joke. I wonder how can R&M accept these kind of standards of products with their name on it.

Took it for a spin around the block, but the saddle isn't comfortable. I think I'll change it to one of those Ah Pek fat ass saddle later. Understand it's much more comfortable.

The brakes are nice, good stopping power, but in reality, not much different from a good set of V brakes. The Rohloff hub is nice, gear change is quite smooth, but frankly, I know nothing much about it except that internal gears are relatively lower maintainence. Swapped out the stock front and rear suspension, seat post, pedals, handlebar, kick stand and seat post clamp.

I think there should be a few other changes before I add more stuff on the bike for touring. We'll see.

EBC Brakes USR7087 USR Series Sport Slotted Rotor

Super quiet sport slotted brake rotors featuring the new EBC narrow profile slot pattern which helps cool brakes and de-gas brakes under load and speed but eliminates air noise. Coated with black zinc finish Ultimax sport rotors are complete with bearing cups where fitted as OEM and are sold and priced in sets for either front or rear. The price you see is for two rotors, one left one right. Another great feature of slotted rotors is the way they maintain flat and parallel pad wear and avoid the record grooves or galling common with non-slotted rotors. This improves pad contact and braking throughout the life of the rotor and pad set.

Biking for Three - 078/365

Biking for Three - 078/365

Saturday was a better day for us. After swim class in the morning I took the two older kids out for a long bike ride. I set up the trailer bike for the boy and attached the trailer to that for the little girl. (You can't really see her, but there is a happy 4yr-old in that trailer. We did about 8-10 miles on the new rail-trail that opened last year, which we can pick up in just under a mile from our house. It was warm and wonderful we had a great ride. We turned a few heads with my double-trailer rig as well.

I set up the camera on the tripod in the driveway. I used a small aperture to maximize the depth of field so that we weren't out of focus. Then I opened it up until the shutter speed was fast enough to freeze us with just a small trace of motion blur. It was a little tricky to fire the camera from the bike and then navigate in a circle, double trailers and all, and up in front of the camera exactly ten second later. I took a wider shot and then cropped it down to better the composition. It was nice to be out on the bikes again on a warm spring day!

bike gears not shifting - Shifting



After bouncing from foster home to foster home, Magdalene Mae is transferred to what should be her last foster home in the tiny town of Silver City, New Mexico. Now that she's eighteen and has only a year left in high school, she's determined to stay out of trouble and just be normal. Agreeing to go to the prom with Bridger O'Connell is a good first step. Fitting in has never been her strong suit, but it's not for the reasons most people would expect-it all has to do with the deep secret that she is a shape shifter. But even in her new home danger lurks, waiting in the shadows to pounce. They are the Skinwalkers of Navajo legend, who have traded their souls to become the animal whose skin they wear-and Maggie is their next target.

Full of romance, mysticism, and intrigue, this dark take on Navajo legend will haunt readers to the final page.

Shifting: The Double Lives of Black Women in America

Based on the African American Women's Voices Project, Shifting reveals that a large number of African American women feel pressure to com-promise their true selves as they navigate America's racial and gender bigotry. Black women "shift" by altering the expectations they have for themselves or their outer appearance. They modify their speech. They shift "White" as they head to work in the morning and "Black" as they come back home each night. They shift inward, internalizing the searing pain of the negative stereotypes that they encounter daily. And sometimes they shift by fighting back.
With deeply moving interviews, poignantly revealed on each page, Shifting is a much-needed, clear, and comprehensive portrait of the reality of African American women's lives today.
