    Me too. I bit the dust twice. Once walking my bike on the bridge you referred to and once riding on the bridge just to the south. Saw plenty of smears in the snow/ice where others had fallen....

    It is astounding to me what lengths politicians will go to to avoid a simple solution that might cost them votes. Just raise the gas tax in 5 cent increments every other month for a couple of years,...

    I disagree. The extra weight at the speeds and the terrain you will be riding is worth the increase in comfort. I have a bad back and my experience with Cannondale road bikes is that they have a very...

    I haven't done the tour but I would recommend the Bon Ton Roulet. That area of New York is beautiful. Other options include a point to point ride on the Erie Canal. (I did Niagara Falls to Albany...

    Lifetime brake pads

    Use your breaks only occasionally particularly if your ER and hospitalilzation insurance is good. If you're really easy on them, brake pads can last a lifetime.

    Saw a Cabi northbound of Lynn nearly get right hooked by a BMW turning east on I-66 ramp. Absolutely the driver's fault. Learned a few minutes ago that a cyclist was struck in front of my office...

    I'd like to hear from one of the police officers. Why are they ignoring dangerous infractions? When car traffic backs up do they get an earful when the go back to their station at the end of the...

    I've had a Morton's neuroma for several years. Typically these are caused or aggravated by tight shoes. Mine came on after my doctor put me on statins and the nerves in my feet went haywire. (It's a...

    By not doing anything (in either the car or bike incident) the police officer is sending the message that it is okay run the red light. This is worse than not being there at all.
