    Am most curious about the bike tree. Are those old destroyed bikes on there? They seem to have water bottles, so perhaps it is just a tree where folks stop and hang their bikes up to take pics.

    By the way, 100 miles of 90% single track with 9,000 feet of climbing is not Hains Point. For a normal person, I'd say you really need to build up to it, but you are Judd Lumberjack so I'm probably...

    First you need to go mountain biking on a mountain bike. You ride a 58 on a road, right? If so, you'll fit mine, which is a large hardtail 27.5. We need to get out sometime so you can try it. I'll...

    Me too. Although I've fallen into the trap of "after this bike, and the other bike, there's only one bike left."

    So now there are six.

    I've had good luck with BB7s myself, and have preferred mechanicals since my old MTB with hydros leaked and I replaced them with BB7s. However, I'm looking at a winter road bike with Shimano BR-RS...

    I totes meant to go that route last week when I had the gravel bike, and I totes forgot. With luck, I'll keep forgetting until it's done.

    They probably aren't (freeway), and it seems insane, but I tried it once just to be like the cool kids. Going downhill, timed right, and you can be off that pig before car drivers even know you're...

    Eastbound Washington Circle in DC is a perfect example of where I'll Idaho a red after stopping and yielding to get ahead of traffic so I can get through the circle without getting crushed. That...

    I sent an email. (And don't tell anyone, but in the winter, I routinely hit the Rossyln Bikeometer twice each direction.)

    Spout Run ice rink had almost completely sublimated by yesterday afternoon. As of this morning, just one, easy-to-avoid patch.

    Of course, it will melt some today and refreeze tonight.

    Yes, the Spout Run skating rink was not suitable for either riding or skating. Too much ice for the one and not enough for the other. You could maybe get by on a mountain bike, but I ended up...

    I think that's about right for the MVT. Other than some trails in Arlington, people are usually just happy if VDOT doesn't plow snow onto the trails. Which they usually do.

    You are still riding a bike, aren't you? Will the Garmin create a windshield for you too? ;)

    Working from home today, but love these updates b/c I think tomorrow is going to suck, with anything on the ground freezing hard. I may take Lee Highway the whole way in to the city.

    My phone lasted through the Hains Point 100 pretty easily with Strava running. However, yeah, I don't want to mount it on the bike, so a Garmin would be good there, yet I feel like streetsmarts in...

    The Phase IV detour is going to be a PITA, no matter what. It seems like it might steer folks right over to the park for BTWD though.

    Is <2 miles from me, so generally I'd be in, with it hardly even counting as a bike ride. Hardly even worth getting kitted up. Could show up in jeans for optimum mockage.
