    While many were commuting on the congested trails and roads on DC/VA/MD, I was riding on Skyline Drive, where I saw three groups of cyclists going in the other (generally downward) direction.

    I read a comment from someone once where he said he practiced shallow breathing when the air was bad. I don't think there's any basis to this whatsoever, but you have to pretend you're doing...

    I'm going to shoot to be at the intersection of Chain Bridge and gravel at least by 6:30. Not sure if that's early enough, but if I miss folks, I'll try to catch up, assuming I can figure out whether...

    Yes, I'd add a Surly Tugnut to that before riding unless the axle were all the way forward in the dropout. In the one pic, it looks like it has been all the way forward before, judging by the paint...

    Just to be OT for a change, I'm home today and am going to try to make this. If you see a dude loitering on an orange Masi near Chain Bridge when you bike by, he's not up to (especially) nefarious...

    Just looked through old tickets, and I saw the Pixies in 1989. 1989! So yeah, 28 years ago. Old indeed.

    I also apparently saw the Jesus & Mary Chain once, but this is news to me.

    Cycling is more efficient than driving or walking.

    Cyclists get to eat more without gaining weight than otherwise sedentary people.

    I assume the Rosslyn Bikeometer heard the news before it was posted here and that's why it died. Good luck out west.

    I can't draw a straight line with a ruler so I know better than to attempt Strava art, but apparently I can accidentally ride to create a stylized, disfigured Disco Stu.

    The title to my ride on Strava had been "Went to see a man about a horse," an old blues euphemism that I meant to be a play on words.

    Judd is just being Judd and confusing people for fun.

    It's better, but it wants to slip off the larger cog under load so it's set to work with the bottom 8 cogs instead. Will need to find a good quality 9-speed mech for it to work on all cogs. Since...

    So yeah, no SRAM stamp on any kind on that random out-of-the-bin chain. In my present mood I'd take the chain in and drop it on the counter as a free return, but since I doubt I'll remember which...

    Also, assuming the pads aren't completely gone, you might adjust the brakes via the adjusting barrel to get them a little closer to the rim (if you haven't already). That should get the lever feel...
