    If a Lumberjack uses a bicycle but does not record it on Strava, does it count as a ride?

    So I got three (3!) emails from DC 311 saying they were closing this ticket and they couldn't find the problem. It's only been 15 months, and one of us "fixed" the sign already, so no doubt they...

    I had never ridden Kirby Rd. past the Marie Butler Nature Preserve to 123, but knowing the road was closed so there would be little car traffic and I might be able to ride up the hills without...

    Though you don't need it at the moment, clear fingernail polish is a good alternative when you can't find the color or temporarily until you do. Keeps it from corroding at least. I always keep clear...

    I too am bad at bunny hops uphill. Downhill fine; uphill I'm likely to mistime it and make it worse.

    Yes, they did this yesterday between the morning and afternoon commutes. I never minded the westbound lip, but eastbound always made me worry about flatting, though I never did.

    I've done this several times. No problems so far. Also, SteveO said they've never had a bike stolen at the valet at the Nationals game. That said, I always ride a beater bike, just in case, and I...

    I think these ramps can be a good time. Since the zig-zag was done at Four Mile Run near the airport (up to the Potomac Yard Trail), I don't think I've ever done the airport loop without going up and...

    We've had this discussion before. If a driver hits you in the crosswalk when the hand has started blinking, you will be considered at fault. Which is total BS, but that's what it is. Fine for you,...

    Good thing I can afford my own beer then.

    Actually, not that opposed to it. Just looked at the site and it's just from Lorcom to Vacation. Doesn't affect the zoom-zoom at all. My bad.

    I get ya. It's not like I'm going to oppose them. I just think it's easier to go from the bike lane to the travel lane, like Scoot says, without the bollards. The folks on the Sunday rides I do do...

    Maybe it's just me being selfish and my type of riding, but I actually wouldn't want PBLs on Military. With the downhills you can go as fast as the cars, and I think it's safer to have more space...

    I suppose due to our writing in, they have now put an orange cone that fixes everything on top of the hole in the pavement.

    And not really a cone, but a larger barrel, so they must think it's...

    I joke all the time about the "orange cones that fix anything" mentality we have toward infrastructure problems, but now that we're a third-world country, we can't even afford those. A sinkhole is...

    I use that right turn lane all the time, in a car, to go from Arlington to Arlington. I could survive without it, but when I cycle that way, I don't feel that the right turn lane endangers me any...

    So cool they have bike racks. I did a ferry ride from Jersey City to Manhattan last year and you just sort of lean your bike against the gunnels, outside. I didn't realize they weren't going to raise...

    I have started dropping off the curb before this; took the lane once this week also to avoid it, but don't feel I'd survive long doing that every day. No way a recumbent or kid-trailer-whatever-bike...
