    I wouldn't call it a war. Just different ways of doing things, and if we talk about it long enough, being cyclists, there'll be a ... skirmish.

    I carry the laptop in a Banjo Brothers waterproof backpack. Carefully situated there among all the clothes, it's cushioned enough unless I get run over.
  3. Car crash on trail below Custis S-turn?

    Anyone have any info on the car that went up the Custis below the S-turn and took out a lightpost? The car clearly came down the I-66 ramp, hopped the median, went through the Lyon Village rear...

    The trail is fine for toodling along, but it would in most cases not be safe for a cyclist (and especially a group of cyclists) engaged in a training ride to ride on it.

    I'm not that fast, but...

    I feel this deserves more likes, but perhaps BA readers are not of that period.

    I have never owned one of their records, but that song does come into my head often in MTB or gravel situations...

    Correct, of course--I was being a bit facetious.

    Then you'd have a mountain bike.

    I do find the 33s a bit squirrely in loose gravel, such as the brief downhill on the towpath just south of the beltway. I generally find that if I hold on loosely...

    25s, that's mental for that distance. I mean, can be done, sure, but doesn't seem worth the hassle dodging all the rocks and muck when 33s will go right over and through them.

    I have a bunch of different shoes and shift around all the time to alleviate different pains and pinch points. I find this true for running, cycling, even work shoes--that if I wear the same shoes...

    For all the angst about front lights blinking on the trail, and I get that some of them strobe too much and sometimes I do have to resist getting annoyed, yesterday morning the sun angle was so low...

    Yes, Lake Fairfax Park has nice looking camping. If mountain biking or using a gravel bike, it's doable via access near the Fairfax Ice Rink off the W&OD. (Also accessible from Great Falls,...

    I fit into that category as well. More miles but almost no commutes. At the start, I enjoyed the reduced traffic on roads I had not previously attempted (McLean, toward Great Falls,...

    Personally, I don't think the pole placement is bad, but they probably should have done a touch better with the painting. Still not terrible, and better say than on East Basin Drive, where carelessly...

    Used to do that when I was a younger runner. Ah to be young again and not so painfully slow.

    I don't much like eBikes on the trails, but I'd never even think of yelling at one. To each his own,...

    So sorry, I'm afraid that for me, this one got lost in the many, many posts this year. I enjoyed last year's "calendar"--it's up on the wall in the kitchen. Hopefully we can try again next year, as...

    You said you had your bike leash in the handlebar bag! Great, now we can't go in. We'll have to go around the long way.

    They would have altered the chain length when they did the configuration--to get rid of all the slack from no longer have a rear derailleur or needing the big ring. The dropout is visible in the pic.

    That's certainly the case, and it's a pretty clever solution. Instead of installing a rear freewheel or fixed cog, this person just kept what was there and was able set it at the ratio he or she...

    I will miss that light as well--Fairfax has way too many lights that won't change for a cyclist.

    I will also miss bombing down Cedar from Gallows/Electric with the reduced traffic that made it...

    I rode around the traffic island from all three directions this afternoon. I actually like it and feel it's an improvement. Other than the silly left-turn arrow coming from the west, which is similar...

    "Strawman"--I don't think you understand what that term means, and apparently you get insulted far too easily. No one is going to run over the center island because the arrow is poorly done, and...
