do that. I wouldn't want to break any laws that would deface my fellow cyclists. By the way, CT is one of the best places to ride.

No, but see, in California you can go as fast as you like...Kristin

However, if you live in Baldwin Park, you can not ride in a swimming pool.

The only speed restriction for California states that cars withOUT drivers must not travel over 60MPH.
Choice of tickets...Brooks

A story I heard growing up in the SF Bay Area related to George Mount, a top US racer in the early-mid 70's (Olympian?). He was riding on Highway 24 between Orinda and Oakland. This highway goes through a tunnel in the Oakland/Berkeley hills and has a pretty good down grade. The story goes that George did not exit the highway and take the alternate route up and over the hills but went through the tunnel. A CHP pulled him over and gave him a choice of tickets: for riding a bike through the tunnel or for SPEEDING. Just for ego, I think he took the speeding ticket.
