    IMO, if I could get a gadget that would keep me from getting hit I would buy it today. As it stands I can wear a strobe light and dress like a clown and some jackass who isn't paying attention will...

    I see people with jackets when it's like 80 degrees and sunny. Makes me lightheaded just to see.

    Jermantown is a reasonable road to ride. There's a path on one side, in some places almost an undermaintained MUP and in others a pretty ratty sidewalk. The side with the school is better on that...

    Excellent light--it puts the light where it needs to be, so even though it doesn't have the same lumens as some of the flashlight lights, it does a better job of lighting the road. (It's a much more...

    Of course the flip side of that is--if the ped doesn't acknowledge the pass, slow down and assume they're going to start flailing around like a zombie on speed just as you get near them.

    And pedal reflectors--they're incredibly visible and distinctive for approaching cars, and hard to forget to bring along. They're one of my requirements for pedals on a commuting bike.

    If they really need a steam of drivers turning right, the smartest option would be a dedicated merge lane for the right turners after the turn, so they wouldn't have to be looking left for a merge...

    Allowing pedestrians to use anything in a VDOT ROW is VDOT's idea of a compromise. They'd much rather get rid of all crosswalks to improve their LOS numbers.

    Good catch, looks like Shimano updated them. Maybe I need new pedals (and a new bike to put them on?)

    I guarantee that having a trail as an amenity will do more for their house values than having nothing but an expressway in their backyard.
