    Welcome to the fold! It's nice to see another Alexandrian (and even Maryland connection) on here. At times the forum can seem as though it really is just about BikeARLINGTON, but there actually is a...

    No that is a great suggestion. The Silver line wasn't open when I started this thread, but it is something that we could take advantage of to avoid some of the most congested, cross-street riddled,...

    It is great, but that's starting to stretch my ability for a door-door ride.

    Thanks for the tip though.

    I ride up there a bit too. I have a variable 110 mile loop that goes north from home and uses a mix of road and trail up to Lake Needwood, then I continue up to Mt. Airy, then turn west to Urbana,...

    I've done some searches on RidewithGPS, for westward road routes past Dulles, but not much comes up. I agree that Leesburg seems to be the limit of bad suburban sprawl, but it just seems crazy that...

    Dump trucks. They get paid by the load, so they will not slow down for anything. Even if that anything is you. They also seem to *think* they know exactly how wide their trucks are and despite being...

    Great story, but we have a long way to go before we even have civilized driving in some areas of the city.

    This morning on Suitland Road near the water tower at SFC, I saw (from my car) another...

    The Mount Vernon Community School in Del Ray is a pretty darn good school form what I hear. All the neighbor kids go there. It's also bi-lingual, so your kids would learn Spanish as well as English....

    To be thorough, I think I'd start with the highest point in each state.... You could do representative climbs, kinda like the spreadsheet below. It would be easy at first, but would ramp up quickly!...

    I saw it just this week! I did a clockwise Arlington loop ride before doing some laps a Hains Point between 6 and 8pm. I got to the Rosslyn area just as it was getting actually dark and some idiot...

    How about a U-lock to the head? That would solve this problem too. Who does he think he is? Some sort of counter-culture warrior out to beat the cops? He's just an asshole.

    Wait...what? ISIS has spaceships now?? Damn, they're more advanced than I thought. That's scary.

    Yeah, I'm really only talking about the roads. Dark MUPs and joggers are their own can of worms that I really don't want to open, because I don't think this forum needs another fight.

    But I think...

    It's dark = lights

    This is the wrong crowd to write this to, because I know none of us is suicidal and lights have been discussed ad nauseum. Usually the problem is that people's lights are too bright right? Anyway I...

    I destroyed a 10-month old rim the other day by hitting a pothole along that mucked up section of Maine Ave. The construction has absolutely killed any sense of a safe or fun ride in that area. It...

    Thanks. I really don't see it happening, but it doesn't hurt to try.

    Fortunately it was only a $500 bike and not something much more expensive. Oh well... people suck.

    Hi all,

    My sister-in-law's Specialized Vita (named Velveeta naturally) was stolen yesterday from behind her house near Philadelphia U. If you happen to know anyone up there or check Philly...

    Hi! Thanks for asking the trail users for input.

    What exactly does the snow clearing plan entail? I'm assuming plowing. But since many of the snowfalls around here are of the dusting -> 2 inch...

    Thanks for the clarification. I have in fact seen cars turn right on red from the center lane, so if you want to report that at the next meeting please do. There's no sign to say "NO", so people...

    Also, related to the IoD - I thought the off-ramp from 66 was going to have "No Turn on Red" signs installed?? When is that going to happen? I didn't see any this morning when I drove through there....
