    Love it!




    The Velo Chevra has spread further still, Baruch Hashem! That's W 10th & West Streets in Manhattan.

    As you have astutely pointed out in the past, each fringe community has its own vocabulary, customs and traditional garb (some with actual fringes!). I'm just saying that this forum understands Rapha...

    You do realize that 99% of the forum readers do not get your references, right? Though I must say, this is one of the rare circumstances in which I can claim to be part of "the 1%" :)

    Outside of devoted cyclists, many people consider cycling to be a seasonal activity. Twenty-five times per year means going for a bike ride about every weekend during the nice weather part of the...

    Of the listed options, I would choose #6 Heart of Fairfax Trail (HFT) so we can call it the "Horrible F*ckin' Trail", or #7 Dogwood Trail (DT), so we can call it the "Dogsh*t Trail".

    #1,...

    I agree that Quincy could use a PBL from Custis into Ballston. Interestingly, the county's repaving plan (the page to which your post links) omits Washington Blvd. to Fairfax Dr., which is a critical...

    Dasgeh, thank you for helping me reach a higher level of enlightenment and recognize the body shaming implicit in my previous posting.

    I now know to avoid complimenting my wife's appearance, and...

    Tell her, "Honey, I made that mistake because you look so slender and petite." It won't get you a jersey but it might get you back in her good graces :)

    It's like the Air Force One designation. Whatever synagogue the mayor is attending gets designated Temple Emanuel. ;)

    I have a car, a rack and a gravel-capable bike ... and a music gig that's not going to get me home until 2 AM the night before. Hmmm, I gotta think about that.

    Bravo on this fallacy of relevance. Sea level rise and coffee both involve warming liquids, but that's about as far as the similarity goes.

    I don't understand what point you're making. Is it that...

    Climate scientists, unlike economists, recognize that they can't predict the future precisely and so they give ranges. You have to plan as best you can within the precision of the forecast. I will...

    I was surprised to see the authors admit they don't have any data on how many cyclists are using the lanes being studied. Drawing conclusions from the number of crashes without knowing the usage of...

    As is often the case, SteveO and I disagree on our preferred trails. I find Columbia Street to be a bad choice for riding - very narrow with frequent two way traffic, poor sight lines due to hills,...

    Hopefully you will find it should be spelled with an "l", since the rest of us can't seem to stop spelling it that way :)

    For my East Falls church to Rosslyn commute I primarily use three routes. Which one I take on a particular day depends on my mood.

    1. Custis all the way to W&OD

    #1 & #2 resonate with me - I exit my office building on N. Kent between 19th and Wilson and the east ends of both 19th and Wilson are harrowing to ride on.
