  1. I ride on the left side of an unprotected lane in...

    I ride on the left side of an unprotected lane in the presence of parked cars. Most drivers give me three feet although I do note that I am more likely to be buzzed with bike lane markings than...

    What makes you think that my mode choice is irreversible and therefore my preferences do not matter? (Even if my choice is irreversible, why should my preferences not matter? This doesn't seem to...

    I think you misunderstand. The unsafe infrastructure I am referring to are the general travel lanes. Sorry, but I don't want to ride on a PBL down Fairfax during rush hour. Nor do I want to ride...
  4. Sorry, but I ride in the unprotected bike lanes...

    Sorry, but I ride in the unprotected bike lanes on Fairfax, Wilson, and Clarendon. Well, I'll take the lane going downhill on Clarendon from Courthouse, just because that should be marked with...
  5. I was riding in the unprotected bike lane before...

    I was riding in the unprotected bike lane before and a car can easily pass me in the general travel lane. Afterwards, I am in the general lane and the car cannot pass me. This is true of Veitch,...

    Bah... The only thing an orange bike is good for is deer hunting.
  7. As I've said repeatedly, now the general travel...

    As I've said repeatedly, now the general travel lanes are narrower and do not support cars passing without having to leave the lane. This makes taking the lane less safe than before. Further, it...

    I'm pretty sure that these are two separate groups of cyclists being ticked off.

    You know, if you just used shift levers, none of this would be a problem.:rolleyes:

    You will also note that the paint on these PBLs suggests that a car making a right turn cross the PBL at 90 degrees rather than encouraging the car to merge with the bike lane and then turn right...

    Don't let those BMI Nazis get you down. It's very difficult to get out of the "overweight" category when you have developed massive thighs from biking.

    Also, tall people are discriminated against...

    Of course, often a set of chainrings cost more than a complete crankset.

    This means drivers can proceed behind a pedestrian before the pedestrian reaches the far curb. It also likely means that a driver on the opposite side can proceed in front of a pedestrian if the car...

    I view that as more of the standard under DC law. It assumes that drivers are paying attention. I think the Virginia standard is to not enter the street unless you can safely get across without...

    I woke up this morning and what did I see? Snow flurries.:rolleyes:

    I would merely point out that calculus is not required to find the area under a straight line. All one needs is mere geometry.

    Back in the olden days, the cache of all rides, correct, discarded, edited, or whatever, was discarded every night and refreshed with presumably corrected rides. Wait until tomorrow to see whether...

    I have had that problem before. If you didn't have such massive quads getting it out afterwards would be easier.
