    Saw it for the first time this morning; caught my attention while riding - can only hope it does the same for drivers. Seemed to perhaps be motion activated? It was on and then off and then on again,...

    Lots and lots of dangerous stuff going on on N. Adams and the north-side Lee sidewalk each morning, unfortunately. Most people are electing to cyclocross carry the stairs, which is fine, but then...

    My suggestion was simply that the sub-fora better align with what people actually talk about. There are lots of recurring themes in the general forums that could be their own.

    I personally wish that this forum would have a little more division by topic. Generally (pun intended), everything ends up in "general discussion". It's OK now where in absolute terms there aren't...

    That day is seriously one of my favorite days of the year. Bye-bye to the screaming-brake, helmetless, earbuds-in, turning 120 RPM in the granny gear and taking the whole trail going 5 MPH crowd. See...

    Yep. The M street lane is the epitome of this in my book. I rode M street home in the afternoons for the better part of 3 years. No bike lane, no problem. Traffic was either flowing and flowed right...

    ACPD had a presence at the IOD this morning - two cars, lights on, neither blocking any trail, sidewalk, or road. I thanked the officer as I rode by.

    Unfortunately, there were TV crews...

    As primarily a commuter and road cyclist, I dread the impacts that this will have on the treatment of bicycles within cities, as well. Where does the tipping point for paid bicycle parking, etc. come?

    On an MUP? For certain!

    All joking aside, remember that string of drunken / clueless driver incursions onto the W&OD a couple years ago?

    This right here is the silver lining. Don't underestimate this. At least for me, as cycling became my full-time commute, the "fun" aspect of it eroded somewhat. It developed almost a Pavlovian...

    Soooo very much agree with this. Which is why, personally, I push back against a lot of cycling "activism" that makes cycling look even more childish. Referring to the street corner sign waving...

    "Horse"? There were about 20 of them! The article says they went over the Key Bridge, so I'm sure that involved the IOD in one way or another.

    I ran up against them on M Street, with a whole bunch...

    Heard them Sunday. From the sound I would have sworn about 200' AGL (though probably not the case). A shame they only did one pass. They definitely needed at least two - one to get attention, then...
