I went on my own and tracked 30 miles. :) But I was ready for rain — I had my butt-saver and put my cell inside of ziplock. :)

Since there is no bicycle intimidation law in PA and the city cops are less than helpful, the best we could do is to report him to yellow cab, but they too have been less than helpful in the past. I dunno – I’ll let it be your call.

For those not on the ride; the cabbie in vehicle 1000 came up behind us as we rolled up to a red light and started blaring his horn while his female passenger yelled derogatory comments at us. The rider immediately beside me was very startled and almost wrecked as a result. I (as is habit) responded & tried to get his photo. He was a small framed African-American about 60 years old. He definitely has anger issues.

Is “Pittsburgh Cab Company, Inc” the same as “Pittsburgh Yellow Cab” ?

The last time I was buzzed by a Yellow Cab, I sent the description of the incident, including vehicle number, to joycelee@pghtrans.com at 1210 am; I got a response at about 0830 from that address copied to GDelk@pghtrans.com, JCampolongo@pghyellowcab.com, and jarmstrong@pghtrans.com :

Thanks very much for letting us know about this incident. With the information you gave us, we can track who was driving the vehicle, and will bring the driver in for counseling. We appreciate your taking the time to write us. Concerned citizens like you really do make a difference.

Not sure if it does in fact “make a difference”, but it seems like it can’t hurt? FWIW, Campolongo apparently is Vice President of Yellow Cab: http://www.pghtrans.com/contactus.cfm?pageid=40

Alternatively, cabs in PA are regulated by the Public Utility Commission, so you could just file a complaint directly with the state: https://www.puc.state.pa.us/consumer_info/transportation/motor_carrier/limos_taxis_movers/taxi_complaint_form.aspx

Don’t know if that’s me. Did get your message on Endomondo to check this out. So, goodness, I’d like to, but I think this runs too late to work for me. 8-11 and I would’ve been sold. May ride a bit at the start and head back, dunno.

Much depends on when my wife’s car is ready at the shop, and how Sunday shapes up in terms of other plans with the kiddies.

Anyone have a .gpx for this ride? I don’t need it but would like to have it, so don’t go out of your way. Only if it is convenient.

I saw that I could download it from ridewithgps if I was a member but I use another site and prefer to not join.

Thanks.

Sorry, Stef, just noticed your question (I was on “All neighbor ride” nad then some final preps for 3 States ride). http://ridewithgps.com/routes/3122861 — for 100 miles (actually 96).

PS I’ve managed to ride 100 (went back over HMB-EFT) and then, after waiting for people I rode another 26. So total 126 (a little bit over 200k).

Passed a pair of cyclists in PMTCC jerseys on the Island going back towards town past my house around 2:30, as the wife and I had just finished loading up our bikes onto the rack and were pulling out to start our own afternoon adventure. Figured it had to be part of the 3 State crew! Was gonna give a friendly honk, but wasn’t sure that would come across as proper etiquette.
