    I'm OK with a shorter route - this hasn't been a big riding year for me either.

    Registered, and costume started.

    Technically, Dr. Teeth and Floyd Pepper are Muppet Show characters, not Sesame Street characters, but I think Muppets are close enough.

    The only time I ever got mugged in the bad old days of New York was across the street from Macy's Herald Square in the middle of the day. Sometimes crowds can obscure illicit activity.

    I clicked through an article on ArlNow to Amazon's HQ2 job listings and noticed that one of the things they tout is:

    "Bike-friendly access

    I hear the cool kids can be spotted at Columbia Island on Thursday nights.

    My former colleague (and former Secretary of the Air Force) Deborah James was hit by a right-on-red car while out walking near here home. Perhaps because she is a VIP, the driver was cited and she...

    Love it!




    The Velo Chevra has spread further still, Baruch Hashem! That's W 10th & West Streets in Manhattan.

    As you have astutely pointed out in the past, each fringe community has its own vocabulary, customs and traditional garb (some with actual fringes!). I'm just saying that this forum understands Rapha...

    You do realize that 99% of the forum readers do not get your references, right? Though I must say, this is one of the rare circumstances in which I can claim to be part of "the 1%" :)

    Outside of devoted cyclists, many people consider cycling to be a seasonal activity. Twenty-five times per year means going for a bike ride about every weekend during the nice weather part of the...

    Of the listed options, I would choose #6 Heart of Fairfax Trail (HFT) so we can call it the "Horrible F*ckin' Trail", or #7 Dogwood Trail (DT), so we can call it the "Dogsh*t Trail".

    #1,...

    I agree that Quincy could use a PBL from Custis into Ballston. Interestingly, the county's repaving plan (the page to which your post links) omits Washington Blvd. to Fairfax Dr., which is a critical...

    Dasgeh, thank you for helping me reach a higher level of enlightenment and recognize the body shaming implicit in my previous posting.

    I now know to avoid complimenting my wife's appearance, and...

    Tell her, "Honey, I made that mistake because you look so slender and petite." It won't get you a jersey but it might get you back in her good graces :)

    It's like the Air Force One designation. Whatever synagogue the mayor is attending gets designated Temple Emanuel. ;)

    I have a car, a rack and a gravel-capable bike ... and a music gig that's not going to get me home until 2 AM the night before. Hmmm, I gotta think about that.

    Bravo on this fallacy of relevance. Sea level rise and coffee both involve warming liquids, but that's about as far as the similarity goes.

    I don't understand what point you're making. Is it that...

    Climate scientists, unlike economists, recognize that they can't predict the future precisely and so they give ranges. You have to plan as best you can within the precision of the forecast. I will...
