    For clarification, last year's race just crossed the WOD and did not run on it like it apparently did yesterday. The course ran sideways up the hill that was "painted" green last winter. Apparently...

    This happened last year as well. Why is it incumbent on racers in a school sponsored cross country meet to dodge outside obstacles? Last year cyclists went through interfering with runners when a...

    The solution for everything is more enforced rules for automobile drivers and no rules at all for cyclists.:rolleyes:

    No wonder everyone loves us!

    Well, if they keep the parking and get rid of the bike lane, there is still that strip of asphalt between the parked cars and the other lanes where the original bike lane was. And ... it's too...

    They don't need bike computers. All they need to do is check their Strava accounts.:rolleyes:


    (The main point is that many cyclists would consider the 15 mph speed limit on the trails--even in...

    Why should cyclists follow the detour signs? Are cyclists no longer allowed on Lynn?:rolleyes:

    Umm... unsafe passing is illegal for automobiles on roads and at least potentially could be enforced. (My comment isn't really about tickets being issued by cops versus cameras, but enforcement of...

    Oh, if only we could have automated technology that would send tickets to cyclists that pass dangerously on the MVT. It would improve safety. Then we could expand the system to ticket less unsafe,...

    We are Borg. You must accept all points of this discussion. Resistance is futile.

    Hmmm... How do you think the location of speed cameras is determined?

    I don't have a problem with automated enforcement in principle, but in practice it seems to focus more on revenue than...

    From Streetview, the sharrows appear to where a (fairly substandard) bike lane would be. If that is where they want cyclist to ride, they should mark it as a bike lane and take width out of both...

    Some random thoughts:

    1) If we, as cyclists, are empowered to determine whether a sidewalk is a reasonable place to run, why shouldn't drivers be able to decide whether we are as far right as...

    Sorry, can't make it. I'll be chaperoning the kids at the Outdoor Lab. I'll hoist a cold one in your honor. If I get hauled away to jail for drinking on APS property, you know who I'll be blaming.

    My commute is now about 9 miles/45 minutes (depending on route). It's faster than bus/metro or walk/metro and I won't consider driving.

    I just checked the Deore front shifter pod (M-440) on my hybrid. The front derailleur is not fully indexed. While a major pull will shift gears, a minor pull will move the derailleur slightly to...

    My comment was based on geometry more than frame material. I found on longer rides I prefer my touring bike over more aggressive bikes.

    This depends on the length of the rides. A light, stiff, aggressive bike would be best for short hill rides, but might pound the crap out of you on longer rides.

    I don't really see the point of the bike box here. If going straight, I would wait behind the cars. There is rarely a long...
