King County Police have notified the City of Lake Forest Park that they will begin patrolling the
Burke Gilman Trail, this Saturday, for speeders and other bicycle violations.

There's actually a speed limit here on bikes? The question is, if bicycle riders are able to break
the limit, how could a fat-assed, doughnut-chomping cop on a mountain bike, loaded with battle gear,
possibly catch up to them?

Maybe they have two, one who measures speeds and radios ahead to a second? A bit of overkill,
perhaps. They also probably count on most people just stopping when told.

What catch some freak dressed up like a clown in queer gear... runnin' red lights... blowin' stop
signs... trainin' for his/her next race on a multi-purpose trail. I've got my money on the "doughnut
chomping cops". It's about time the Lance Armstrong wannabees... got what they deserve.

I believe for most of the B-G the speed limit is 15MPH. However, if you're on the SRT extension and
happen to be heading into Redmond, you'll also notice a posted speed limit sign of 10MPH. I remember
seeing one of those "Speed Limit 15MPH - You speed is XX MPH" radar units placed eastbound on the
SRT just as you're heading into Redmond.

Some of the bike cops around here are far from slow.
