Re: To JC Bikers Who Ride on Sidewalks...

From NJ Dept of Trans:

Q. Can I ride a bike on the sidewalk?

A. While riding a bicycle on a sidewalk is not prohibited by New Jersey statutes, some municipalities have passed ordinances prohibiting bicycle traffic on certain sidewalks. This prohibition is usually posted. It should be noted, that sidewalks are for pedestrians. Riding on sidewalks can cause conflicts with pedestrians and, like wrong way riding, can lead to crashes since it places bicyclists in situations where others do not expect them. Except for very young cyclists under parental supervision, sidewalks are not for bicycling.

Sooooo....I can dig bikers hopping on the sidewalk if there's construction (or what else)? But, those who use the sidewalks as bike lanes must secretly acknowledge in their heart of hearts that they really shouldn't be there.

And they just LOOK dumb, like wet noodles or ditzes. They go 5% faster than walkers, and as a bonus, they're way more likely to get hit in intersections. Stupid.

They can wait behind me if I'm enjoying some music while walking on the sidewalk. Well, because they're dummies, and dummies have to wait.

Stop it.

I'm tired of turning a corner and almost being hit by one of you. And, surprise, no one can hear your bell or your voice if they're talking on the phone or have earbuds in.

Funny thing is, you're barely moving faster than if you walked because you're always contending with pedestrians.

If you're too SCARED to ride on the street without a bike lane, then do everyone a favor and sell your bike, then you won't have everyone quietly wondering why you're such a moron.

Thanks!

Have fun, but when I was in my 20's it was hard to find people to play with who didn't think it was going to be their career. I knew I was much better at my dayjob than I was at drumming. Maybe it's easier now that we're old(er)!


I forgot about Metropolis. Guess it's worth a shot. Anything is better than the nightmare that is Craigslist.

Hey, I WAS one of those 20 year olds. Now I'd just like to turn an amp up past 1 with some other thirty somethings.

Musician's Resources in JC?

I'm one of those aging Gen-Xers who wants to break out the guitar again and find some people to noodle with, but there don't seem to be any local sources to find other musicians downtown. Any suggestions? Practice spaces?

BTW, this is purely weekend warrior type stuff. Any serious aspirations to make it in the industry left me a decade ago. Thanks.

Just get a refund from your credit card company. If you payed any other way, you may be SOL.

Yes. Closed, with a sign on the door that said they are filing for bankruptcy. We just had a class there Monday, and there was no hint of them closing.

It's sad. Mr. Joseph was so good with my son. He'll miss going there.

Notice the bent, "Pet-Free" Zone signs? These are the people we're dealing with: lowlife trash that assert themselves by destroying public property.

They really have to wake up. I hope they will become warmer people with the inclusion of a child.

To summarize Taqueria:

-Pretty good, authentic, Mexican food.

-Owners, who on their bad days, truly disdain their customers.


I've never gotten the sense of warmth from the place, and though I'm a child of the 70's, it feels like shrine to the owners' lost youth.

The male owner can be a particular asshole. The last and final time I ate there, he couldn't understand the pronunciation of my name, even after I told him clearly twice--he just rolled his eyes, shook his head, and walked away.

That's when I decided I was done with Taqueria.
