fmylife.com Today, whilst driving past a cyclist, I thought it would be funny to make him jump by blasting my horn right behind him and then driving off. I guess he thought it would be funny to catch me up, yank off my wing-mirror and hurl it through the open window, at my face. FML

The University community's first bike shop opened in 1896— owned and operated by Clement Bainbridge McKennie, a 4th generation Corner merchant. His great-grandfather was Clement Pynes McKennie who at 21-years old had founded not only the University Bookstore but Charlottesville's first newspaper as well, the Central Gazette (1820). The bike shop was located in the 1300-block of West Main Street, just beyond the railroad trestle (which was installed when the road was dug out beneath the railroad tracks in 1901). The new bike shop signaled a nationwide boom in cycling in the 1890s that had been made possible by invention of the "safety bike" in 1885. UVA students even formed the "University Wheel Club" in 1896.
