    This summer. Their new location is bigger and has a cafe. Of course, the cafe only opens at 8am and closes at 4pm weekdays so I'll likely never stop there for a coffee or a beer. And access from the...

    I don't think Steve was implying that. LOTM was the one who says he doesn't look behind him (and I understand believes that this shouldn't be required if you signal). I'd agree with Steve on this...

    Honestly, I think the games are what make it fun. The leaderboards maybe get people to go out when they "shouldn't" (or maybe really shouldn't) but the games are great. Even from the sidelines.

    Thanks, guys. Yeah, FS has been very positive, which is why I've kept doing it even though I haven't really played myself since burning out year 1 :-). I do really want to see it keep on, so I hope...

    Hey folks - it's probably not time to begin bickering about rules yet, but I wanted to give a heads up that I'm not going to be able to do the scoreboard this year for FS. Between work and...

    Glade is a wonderful road, yes.

    I've ridden Lawyers. It isn't great to the east, but I rode it a couple times when the trail was snowed under and it didn't feel unsafe.

    @Tania, let us know how the CCT trail (Purple Trail) was between W&OD and Twin Branches (wet/dry). I'd like to ride it tomorrow up to LFX if it hasn't started raining, yet, so that might be a good...

    Good point on the course being in better shape on Saturday. They do have that off-camber hairpin turn that gets pretty sloppy after a few races have gone through.

    Most people acknowledge my calls by waving, so I'm pretty confident the problem here isn't me. And that's 2 people in 13 years of commuting, so not too bad. Given the ingrained cyclist expectation...

    You should always look behind you before you change lanes. If you hit someone changing lanes, it's at least as much your fault as theirs.
