    I've only heard of the goon ride (not very positive), never ridden it. That time of year, I suspect the weekday rides are mostly on. Definitely HP...

    Sept - Oct is a nice time to ride in the DC area. Welcome! You might want to bring some bigger tires if your bike will fit them, since having some...

    I fixed it again. Wait, I see a trend. Honestly, the bike won't make any measurable difference. Tires will. But I'm not discouraging you from...

    The Zone looks like a great spec, but surprised they are calling it a race bike with 420mm stays and 72-73 HTA. OTOH, that means hopefully room for...

    Just to throw out there, have you considered wider range cassettes and some road wheels for the cx bike as an alternative here? A SRAM XD 10-42 with...

    This argument makes no sense to me. If I had an e-bike and could average 28mph, I could work out in Leesburg without making my commute much longer. ...
