    A system so complicated that various smart peoples come to different numerical conclusions. Only around DC could this be. Glad I'm just here to ride my biek.

    It is plowed by Arlington, yes. Any downed trees are also removed, and they do it pretty quickly. Leaves are another issue. I have never seen Arlington remove them (except when they are removed in...

    Not the place for a full review, but wanted to comment that, while I love this light as my handlebar/secondary light, I don't think it would be bright enough or extend far enough out to be the sole...

    I appreciate the suggestions for cut-off beam lights. I picked up a Busch & Müller IXON Core IQ2 from Harris Cyclery. (If you can't do the LBS, Harris seems to me about as good as you can do; thank...

    Used it coming back from lunch today. It's been so long I forgot how nice it was as an alternative to the rest of Pennsylvania. Timing was perfect on 19th--hit it just after the light changed...

    I rode through there yesterday afternoon. The ramps were fun, but the rest of it, through the KC area, isn't really going to be any good for cycling if there are more than like 2 pedestrians about....

    I have never ventured outside the Beltway in that area, but inside, Great Falls and Balls Hill are okay, Westmoreland is good, and Churchill is a neighborhood thoroughfare with a low speed limit....

    For those not covered by the optional death and dismemberment plan, Churchill Road is a nice alternative to Old Dominion from Balls Hill. And it turns into Old Chain Bridge Road in McLean at the...

    Last year's rules were fine. This year's rules will be fine. Ima ride my bike.

    That said, I wouldn't advocate for making it too difficult for newbies to join in, since that's ostensibly one of the...

    Rode through here yesterday. Since I kinda refuse to do any detour that involves putting cyclists on a sidewalk, I just went back down Glebe, right on Mount Vernon, right on Four Mile Road, then...

    Excellent. And if you do need auto-type coverage, Better World Traveler's Club is a bike-friendly alternative.

    Good luck Josephine; I do not envy you.

    Excellent. I know we sometimes feel like second-class citizens, but that's not too bad, really. Kirby Road in Fairfax was washed out by the same flood and is still closed and will be for a while.

    Mine got all sprungish immediately, but both still work. It's a soft sound, but then I'm a soft-spoken, gentle sort of guy.

    I've been taking S. Four Mile Run Drive (and Arlington Mill Drive) more often lately. Having to beg to cross using the trail is going to entrench that behavior.
