    I've seen it in Massachusetts (Cape Cod) where two trails merge, but not locally.

    I doubt it was the MJ; more likely the press-fit bottom bracket on that Trek.

    That's a beautiful bike/color. It's rare that "surprise me" works out so well.

    Tangentially related perhaps, but I've found a really nice alternative to the W&OD through there up to the point where the trail runs along Route 9 near the traffic circle. I'm sure some others know...

    Early mornings seem to be when folk go out thinking it's cooler, but I find the humidity in the morning worse so go out later in the day (confession that I love hot weather, so YMMV). Bonus is fewer...

    I did this through 311 last year (I think; maybe the year before?) when one of the trees kind of fell over the path, leaving a tunnel with poison ivy at the end. They came out and cleared it...

    I have blown tubes like that when the bead was too far out, but not when it was too far in. My heart stopped racing, eventually, though the ringing in the ears will never cease.

    I'm not sure if Twitter is the cause of everything wrong with the world or is merely a symptom of it, but it is surely one of the two.

    Today I Learned that if you have a tire that won't seat properly, you can overinflate it and the bead will (may) pop right into place.

    Tons more cyclists on the roads, including lots of kids and families, but he's right about the vehicle speeds. Other bad motorist behavior (passing too close, horn blowing, not yielding the...

    I've been pulling off the trail lately when I get a drafter. Bonus was extra distance during Freezing Saddles.

    Wintry Mix(t)es caught them for about 10 minutes once, but then SteveO uploaded all his rides and they pulled away again, so it was a bit of an illusion.

    I would not say it's been a failure. I...

    I mentioned that a lot of their language was vague to the point of uselessness. That and enforcement of traffic laws; I always mention enforcement since it seems we've largely given up on that.
