    Since you were like half a mile behind me on the leaderboard yesterday and will inevitably pass me today, surely that was a feature, not a bug.

    A couple of guys in front of me dismounted to walk...

    Specific quote:

    "Pedestrians walk into moving traffic without looking, bikes too"

    So we have walking bicycles that don't look where they're going. I believe this surpasses "astute" and moves...

    I kind of agree with this, but I think it depends on where you are riding in Arlington (and also DC). In general, in DC the traffic is going slower. There are many more opportunities for conflicts,...

    As a cyclist who is also a motorist, I have to disagree. This summer, for instance, driving along Shore Drive in Virginia Beach (where a bike lane sits right next to 55-mph traffic), I remember...

    It's difficult to communicate anything in those few seconds in a way that might not be perceived poorly, at least for such as me, so I've pretty much stopped any efforts like that.

    I do think some...

    Was this on the Custis, perhaps near Lee Hwy? Could be the same guy who said almost exactly the same thing as he ran me off the trail a few years back; we very nearly came to blows as he followed me...

    Don't get me wrong, I have bells on most of my bikes. I'll use the bell in certain situations and the voice in others. But especially on the Custis and MVT where it can be pretty bumpy, taking the...

    To many pedestrians, especially those not familiar with local trail conventions, a bell, especially a loud one, just means "get out of my way." I use my voice for this reason, but of course, that...

    Mine show up without any tagging, but it's usually only one per ride, and not necessarily the default (1st) Strava photo.

    Pre-freezing saddles I was around 5,000 miles a year; with freezing saddles, I've been over 7,000. I'm not saying it is because of freezing saddles, but it is because of freezing saddles.

    Saw one along the towpath near Little Falls Branch a few years back. That's the only one so far in the immediate metro area. Three foxes on the morning ride though, a new record.

    Nice. I think it was 2016-17 when I finally got a smart phone, joined Strava, and did my first FS. Stayed a Luddite too long.
