MTB Cycling Molina Greenway

As it is not normal for me lol, I get up an hour before the scheduled start time route, at about 06:03 in the morning. The reason for the early start (some would say have been raised before, but I floor normally raise half an hour before or 16 minutes, so it is a lol madrugón An end!) It is that I wanted to give a surprise to my community on the route we were going to do, and that surprise was to prepare sandwiches cocoa cream to make the most enjoyable and pleasant route. But I had no dough (bread sandwich) or seasoning (cocoa butter), so I had to approach the nearest gas station to buy these food items.

Even having risen early, I saw that if I started to make the sandwiches in my house, I would paste rice. So I decided to toss in a backpack so extra elements (earth, spice and knife), as the elements that I usually accompany any route (bag camelback, nuts, bananas, etc.), with the idea of ​​preparing Poza snacks in the Mula river. This brought me fond memories of my childhood and early years of MTB in Topbbacolleges.com, when there was the “Camelbak backpack” of 90 euros and we went out with our backpack full of snacks and bottled water, and nothing happened, no were dying we’ve become very foodies !!

The Bicycle Day: In Memory Of The First “Trip”

The bicycle, in a cardboard to soak LSD. Image of YttriumOx in Wikipedia.

The relationship with the bike is entirely coincidental: it was riding a bike on April 19 when the discoverer of LSD confirmed its potent effects. A curious story.

In 1938, Albert Hofmann, a chemist at Sandoz in Basel, working with active components of medicinal plants, particularly of ergot (a parasite of this cereal fungus). Ergot, massively ingested in contaminated rye bread, in the Middle Ages caused the fire ergotismo or San Antón, that causes gangrene and hallucinations; It has also been linked to ritual uses in Greece, used for respiratory conditions, to induce abortions and to stop bleeding after childbirth. All this, of course, before the advent of modern medicine.

Zaragoza City Council included in its rider ordinance the possibility that bicycles could circulate on the sidewalks “exceptionally”, a measure that has proved controversial as has the opposition from the Aragonese society (in particular the Pedestrian Sidewalk association arising on account of this issue). Pedal cyclists ‘ association, meanwhile, did not seem to be excited about this possibility, and has been shown against sometimes. You know that this blog we feel that the bike is better on the road, by many factors.

In any case, the judgment is based on the current traffic law still specifies that the bike is a vehicle and therefore your site is on the road. The rules of a municipality, whatever, can not contradict other laws or regulations of higher rank, and therefore certain points of the zaragozana ordinance declared void.
