    I was riding westward on the W&OD early this morning. Soon after I crossed the new bridge, I came to a barrier at Little Falls Street with no indication of a detour. How is one supposed to continue...

    I remember that they created a lot of noise, and in a few places there were a lot of dead ones on the ground, but I don't recall any falling on me.

    A couple of years ago, I got a ticket for not coming to a complete stop while heading east on Buckeye Drive to turn right on Ohio Drive while doing the Hains Point loop. Thankfully that particular...

    It's off topic, but how is one supposed to make a left turn from a protected bike line on the right? I usually leave the PBL earlier and get to the left, but this requires me to know the PBL well....
