    I considered the Element since so many sang its praises, but decided I'd get a Garmin 735xt watch instead that I could use swimming, running, and kayaking. I often use it as a backup for riding but...

    So I'm not the only one. Stopped working in my basement too. When winter comes and it's 18 degrees out, I'm not sure what I'm going to do; taking my hands out of my gloves isn't going to help them...

    I have a Samsung Android as well, and when I had (somewhat) similar issues, it was because I didn't wait until the phone said "GPS signal acquired" before starting. I can't get a GPS signal in our...

    Sorry to hear that; glad it's not worse.

    I feel like these lanes are some of the worst for dooring in the county, at least of the lanes I regularly travel. I always ride right on the line, or...

    "The question (should we allow bikes on Metro [during rush hour]) is being asked..."

    FTFY. Bikes are already allowed on Metro.

    Sounds like you are/will be pretty happy either way, but if you do change it, all you have to do is drop the capital E and you'd be pretty much the same. Congrats, btw. Love stories like this.

    I was looking at the BART site, and it appears that even they say that bikes are not allowed on crowded train cars.

    "Regardless of any other rule, bikes are never allowed on crowded cars. Use...

    From a related post on ArlNow on the dockless bike and scooter pilot:

    Works in San Francisco, why not here? Oh yeah, right.

    ETA that I think it is a great *idea* that will never work in practice.

    A few weeks ago on the other side of that bridge I witnessed a guy on a bicycle leaning over a bike locked to the Kennedy Center rack and rummaging around in the fishing tackle box that person keeps...

    I'm sure this doesn't need saying, but if the construction sends folks over to the I-66 bridge instead, please be careful. Not only has Trollheim been wet for days on end, but there are slimy leaves...

    I think that, because of where the curb cuts are, you'd be less likely to hit the one further downhill. The one further up the hill comes into sight a little late too; as you round the corner, your...

    Noted yesterday and this morning that they have added the "orange cones that fix everything" on both sides of the pole, so yeah, they're on it.

    Thx, Judd. Can probably help out a bit on occasion.

    Don't for a second think I'm faulting the Park Service. I'm a big fan who purchases the yearly park pass every year. (Because my $80 is going to...

    Yeah, what mstone said. I'll write the odd email every now and then, but I'm not really ever going to be a superadvocate. Just don't have the energy or disposition. That's why I give money to WABA,...

    People were posting about the root heaves on the Custis near the bridge to nowhere, but those hardly rate compared to the root heaves on the MVT near Memorial Bridge. I actually almost went over the...

    So many of us do this that it's a wonder anyone uses it at the most crowded times.

    The MVT really is substandard at this point, with the exception of the sections that have recently been redone.

    Is like with cars. You shouldn't have to check to make sure drivers are actually stopping when their light changes red, but you do; otherwise, you get dead if you go.

    I'm always aware of the tendency for drivers to lose it and go off the parkway when I ride just south of Trollheim, so I ride quickly and am ready to take (probably ineffective) evasive action. I...

    I would say my Incredibell is louder than my voice, but my voice is louder than my Oi bell. For that reason, when I ride with the Incredibell, I hardly ever use it anymore but use my voice, while I...

    I don't think you should have to, but looks like it's necessary, times being what they are. Bonus is that if there's no one there, then you don't even need to stick your arm out.

    Those are really pretty. If only I believed in fenders.

    I've seen similar in a copper color that I almost want to buy and just hang up on the wall somewhere.

    Also, our dog absolutely cowers when he hears a bike bell. I mean, he shakes like a leaf for 15 minutes. The neighbor's kids hit their bike bells in the street and the dog will start shaking on the...

    Yes it's also more than a convention where it is legally required. The point I was trying to make and did so imperfectly is that it's not practiced everywhere so is not universally understood. I wish...
