    Today's discordant set of stickers on a car: A BMW with I [bike] Rockville , LSU alum, Feel the Bern, and a 1-Star (as in one-star general).

    The only thing that could improve it is a...

    Yep, gosling season. I had one bite me pretty hard once when I was a kid. Lesson learned. My favorite is when they hiss at you.

    Dagnammit. Now I've got that Garth Brooks song "Buried the Hatchet" stuck in my head.

    Gentrification is a genuine issue, I get that. But I don't buy that the heat being directed against these bike lanes in these specific instances is really about gentrification. This is about MARYLAND...

    I don't want to come across as celebrating people losing their jobs, but i had really awful experiences with their customer service. There's a location nearish my office but I happily went out of my...

    The women's is on universal, but the men's is on CNBC (at least that's what's listed on my system, verizon FiOS).

    That's a good point, though in this case we're talking about two very similar types of stores.

    New Conte's in Va Square

    So Conte's officially plans to open a shop 5 blocks from Freshbikes (aka a former Conte's franchise). I suppose you could see this as coincidental. It's just Hotelling in action with a shop opening...

    I know I'm consistently in the minority on this, but the counterargument is that no one lives and works right on an MUT. Thus they also travel on roads during the same trip. Furthermore, all the...

    Heard during a ride yesterday that they are closing. It's confirmed on their website. September 30. I had mixed experiences with them but sad to see them leave the market, nonetheless.

    Funny. Apparently they have trouble at four-way stops as well because drivers invariably do the little inch-up dance that paralyzes the car. Learning pains. Like the biker in the ad, I think...

    My coworkers whine about filtering and multi-file riding all the time. What needs to be demonstrated are the reasons why and how bikes aren't cars and why changing the laws aren't part of a zero-sum...
  13. This is what happens when we follow traffic laws

    Here's a little bit of awesomeness in SF yesterday. As a protest, dozens of cyclists fully conformed to the traffic laws along the Wiggle route. Guess what happened? Gridlock. I can't count the...

    Reminds me of the famous (perhaps apocryphal) story of the dead rat stuck in the Oval Office wall during the Carter administration. The GSA said it was Interior's responsibility since the rat...

    Awful. It's not hard to guess where this happened. There's a super fast downhill section near the end of the loop. A blown tire in just about the worst possible place. Incredibly bad fortune.

    Mental illness perhaps or perhaps she had a recent bad experience with someone on a CaBi and it was a case of mistaken identity. People on CaBis all look alike, you know. Definitely a disturbing...

    I did Williamsburg the year of the grizzly swim as well and it's a MUCH better run race now. They also really screwed up logistics that year in a variety of ways (late shuttles, really late bag...

    Going off on a non-sequitur here, but I'm just amazed at how many major events happened within about 200 miles this past weekend. Aside from you folks at AFC, there were two half-iron triathlons...

    Well the Iowa Republican straw poll did foreshadow our last two presidents, President Bachmann and President Huckabee.

    A small edit to this. H Street dead ends at 20th due to IMF construction (unless you use the sidewalk, which is technically illegal in this part of town). I personally would go TR to New Hampshire....

    That floating pavilion thing was just never going to..er..float. I bet the bridge goes next. Without the pavilion there's less justification for it.

    My experience so far this week is exactly what you predict. In fact just this morning about 7.25 I almost got nailed by a car at the front of the line that behaved exactly as you described. Learning...

    What do you want to use the bike for? If it's mainly for riding on roads or paved trails then those tires and front suspension -- as well the overall bike weight, no doubt -- will waste lots of your...
