    I had this problem with that brand of lock--it was like the tumblers themselves got out of alignment. A couple of times, it took upwards of 20 minutes to coax them back into alignment. What worked...

    Yep. If you can put on both parties, there are two deductibles instead of one.

    We can advocate, and they can fund if there is money for it. Here, it appears there is not. I see no reason to doubt the claims that there were significant cost overruns in non-optional work. ...

    Without the tunnel, the route will go through a park, onto a PBL for a short block to the intersection at a busy street (Wisconsin Ave.), then continue in a PBL for a long block to the Woodmont...

    I get the anger at the supposed bait and switch, though I recall the promises less than absolute. I'm not for making this a hill to die on, though. The price tag is pretty steep for avoiding one...

    It would be hit or miss. All buildings with parking garages are required to have bike parking on the first level, but it's not required to be open to the public. Some will have two racks, one...

    WaPo Style guidelines

    The Washington Post does, in fact, have guidelines discouraging the use of the word "accident" in crash reporting.

    None of it makes any sense. There are tens of thousands of electric bikes in NYC right now, largely piloted by poorer workers who are subject at any time to having the police confiscate their...

    There are many websites that offer a variety of often somewhat contradictory advice on commuting in general, and winter commuting in particular. I would check those out, and then not go wild buying...

    The conclusory statement that the protected lanes are safer is unproven. It's logical, to be sure, but should not be stated as a fact. The only fact is that they felt safer to women, and that's...

    I yell pretty damn loud, and it's saved me more than once. If others feel they can't yell as loudly, then they may need more than a bell.

    The rent had to have been ferocious. I used to patronize them at their old location. The wrenches were great about helping me get small parts that other bike shops couldn't be bothered with, like...

    I dunno. It's so chaotic that drivers have to be careful and drive slowly. I think order and smooth flow lulls drivers into driving too fast, and on mental auto-pilot.

    The stretch of RCP between Calvert and Pierce Mill has seen a few high profile security issues in the past, though mostly a decade or more ago. I often avoided it more because the trail was so...

    There are many people who ride that route. I did it for 8 years and still do on occasion. Most riders just stay on Beach Drive all the way to where it connects to Broad Branch, then pick up the RCP...
