Black pavement is so pretty!
It was a tough morning. We missed you two, but hope to see you soon!
DBB and others - tire info is really helpful with condition reports.
Wow. I've seen them there a lot but never behaving quite this boldly. That had to be just a little disconcerting. Great video though. He or she didn't seem fazed at all by the blinky.
The Eads St. bike lanes north of 23rd Street were a slushy mess yesterday and may be unrideable today. Not sure about the other Crystal City bike lanes. FMR was great yesterday but with lots of wet...
Four Mile Run Trail along Glebe Rd.
There are now a couple of patches of hard ice that extend for about 8-10 feet almost all the way across the trail on the part of FMR that runs alongside Glebe...
I rode from Pentagon City to the FMR trail and Shirlington last night via Hayes and Eads St.
All of the bike lanes were clear and mostly dry and ArlingtonDES had removed or smoothed the pile of...
Sorry, just saw your note. I'm back home now. Was outside shoveling.
Shirlington area report: Just rode to Shirlington Village. S. Arlington Mill Road and the trail alongside it were wet but clear. The trail had been brined before the snow, so I think all the other...
Post Prez day coffee? I'll be heading to Best Buns around 9:30 -9:45 this morning on cross type tires. Will report back on conditions.
Wait a minute - didn't you two come by car???
I counted about 16 of us at coffee club this morning. Not bad for a morning of zero(?) degree F wind chill.
I have an early morning appointment and probably won't be able to get there until close to 9, but will be there as soon as I can be.
Will see you there!
I've had a long week and have decided to head straight home tonight. Have a great time tonight, though. Bluejacket sounds like an excellent choice.
Shirlington location, lol. Just kidding.
I'm sure someone can come up with something better located. Or, you could save the beerneuring thing as an excuse to go have a beer again at another...
If I can get off from work in time, I might try to join you for at least part of this. :) Please don't wait for me at all though.
. . . ummm, that might have been a certain forum member. :o You seemed to be enjoying the day too - "It's best time of year," I think you said.
As mentioned above, i'm now trying for Friday, March 27.
I've abandoned the April proposal, so no need to comment further at this point about the April date. Thanks again for all the feed back...
Thanks for all the helpful feedback!
Nothing is definite yet, but I'm trying for Friday, March 27.
Update: I'm now talking to Cap City about Friday, March 27 as a possible date.
Will edit this post again later to let everyone know if that becomes definite.
I just did a google search on riding in wind and an article in Bicycling backs you up, Will, suggesting one riding alone in a crosswind use a slightly easier gear/higher cadence. Interesting.
Bridges can be really tough sometimes. My tips would be to choose a better bridge to cross on (e.g., 14th Street Bridge has nice high railings on both sides), and to ride in a slightly higher...
That's REALLY funny, lol. I'm the biggest scaredy cat of all of us!
Your competitors appreciate that you use up all this time. ;)
