    Just as an FYI, the "Ride to Provide" takes place in that very location on Saturday at 0900. It just might be something to consider, in terms of leaving before 0900 if at all possible, or joining if...

    That's such a bummer.

    That being said, I would like to think any ding to your metal or carbon bikes should push you one step closer to buidling wood bikes, and that I think is worth celebrating!...

    I like the idea! For this instance, in case it is not know, the trollheim refers to the long wooden boardwalk section of the MVT just south of Roosevelt Island. Though between drivers piloting their...

    This morning commute was great. I rode a bit with some guy riding into town who complimented the disc trucker, which always makes me happy. Had a nice tailwind heading south. And it was beautiful...

    I measure from the bridge going over to the island up to the start of the ramp over GWMP being 0.17 miles, which is really the stretch in question, I belive (basically the start of the parking lot to...

    I know I'm (mostly) alone on this, but I just couldn't disagree more. I think the multiple options (on trail/thru parking lot) simply confuses things and makes things more dangerous. I think part of...

    I realize that they are looking for comments directly to them, but thought I'd start some thoughts here at least. To that end...

    I would prefer that they shift the south parking lot west, to cover...

    Sometimes I wish bike companies would advertise on TV. And even make cyclists look as normal as car drivers. I can't think of any TV commercials for a major bike brand, and if they are, I think it...

    Is it just me, or does the majority of the R-B corridor in Arlington appear to be sinking? Not that this is technically in Arlington, but it's close...

    Yes on this! I especially like using a longer Torx screwdriver for this. I got one at the hardware shop in Westover for a couple of bucks. Bascially the interior brake pad adjustment requires the...

    Awesome job! I'm just curious, are you going to DOT? Is it not easy to just take NJ from Eye st all the way down? Just trying to undestand the exact route and see if there's an easy way if you don't...

    I'm guessing this is a paved road/trail question, but if not there is always the option to take the Custis to Quincy -> Miliarty -> Chain Bridge -> C&O -> back to MVT via any of the bridges.

    I also think, at the risk of painting with too broad a brush, that we are generally a convenience society. For most people in most places, driving is by far the most convenient mode of transportaion....

    In case you hadn't seen yet, Ohio Drive is now closed to cars (not sure how long this will go on due to Cherry Blossoms, but my guess is a few weeks?). Anyways, I rode around the cones right in front...

    Yep, this is the way I go. 4th is pretty low traffic and often very wide. It also has a nice bike lane entrance into the Penn cycletrack.

    Yea, it's pretty crazy that you can get a $750-800 Shimano 105 complete bike off nashbar when the 105 groupset alone is probably like $450-500. Now that I write it like that, it seems that I have...
