    Looks like the sample listing from Steve did include the 10 base points -- otherwise, a 1-mile ride as shown above won't tally to "20 points".

    Mile 1 = 10 points
    Mile 2 = 9 points
    Mile 3 = 8...

    Wouldn't 5 miles ridden, in your 2nd listing, net the rider 50 points? (ie, 10 base day points, plus 10+9+8+7+6 "per mile" points)

    I like the plan! I agree that the "front-loading" of higher...

    Agreed... I suppose because the apartment contractor did this as part of that project, perhaps it didn’t receive the same attention as a county repaving would’ve? And perhaps the county would have...

    Hows the width clearance? So far I have only driven a car beneath that new bridge -- but it seems very narrow for bikes + pedestrians simultaneously?

    Joined the 5:30am setup team. Will we get a guidance/instruction email (who to meet with upon arrival, etc) prior to that morning, or just show up at the plaza and find someone official-looking? -C

    I’ll add that I’ve been very happy with the Spokes crew at Quaker Lane... they’ve done all the work (that I can’t or don’t want to try) needed on my ebike (since the makers Vintage Electric Bikes,...

    OMG the new pavement looks like nirvana! Smooth as silk, beautifully wide. I expect that 2 block stretch will be a tiny slice of bliss!

    Hi Justin -
    I didn't do a ton of research before buying my ebike... I test rode a few models (at Spokes -- all were bottom-bracket models) and then went with my early favorite (found online, from...

    I dithered last winter about whether I should join or not, because it was my first winter ever attempting biking, and ultimately I missed the cutoff to sign up. But I used BAFS to motivate me to try...

    Judd, you're welcome to take a spin any time!

    I think I saw it listed in one of the few-and-far-between fine-print signs? I'll check on tonight's ride home.
