    Okay, so I also had a similar MTB bug bite me like 1.5 years ago...here's my take:

    I did the 50 mile version of the MoCo Epic and holy shit it was hard...not as hard as Mountains of Misery, but...

    I take metro+bus about twice a week. But I'm pretty lucky (well, "lucky". We certainly pay a premium for our location) in that I live next to a stop that has extremely high train frequency (Eastern...

    I would be the same way if I only had one bike. Having multiple has been nice in the sense that I can tinker without too much fear, which has been really good for learning new skills. So somewhat...

    This adds like 8 miles to my 12 mile commute, but I'll probably try to hit it at least twice if the weather cooperates.

    I'm traveling with my bike up to NYC next month for Red Hook Crit. The selection of Northeast Regional trains with bike storage were pretty limited (the bike-capable trains mostly seem to run at...

    Ah, but with coaster brakes you can fool untrained onlookers into thinking you are a master of the fixie skidzz. They're like the clip-on bowtie of the bike world.

    Brooklyn Bridge is, on paper, such a great bike connection, but holy shit it's probably the most frustrating place I've ever ridden. I'm staying right next to it on the Manhattan side when I go up...

    I just switched my gravel bike over to moto-style when I did the 1x swap, and I'll do the same on my road bike the next time I have the bar tape off. Makes sense for me because I do ride a...

    My only experience with hydros was a mountain bike...It had Shimano M355s, which I think they are on the lower end of the hydro spectrum. They weren't a revelation or anything, but I never had any...

    March 2017 Road & Trail Conditions

    So...with the exception of a couple spots on the RCP trail, pretty much everything I hit this morning was clear (looks like DCDPW plowed the Chain Bridge sidewalk). The C&O went from an ice rink into...

    I think you're mostly right, although there are lights that I'll jump to get ahead of cars for what I'd say is best described as "safety." For example, on a road with two lanes in the direction I'm...

    Sweet! I don't do a whole lot of group rides, but I am going to try and get back in shape this spring/summer using gravel rides to try and mix things up, so this may be good motivation. I'll PM you...

    I've only ever tried the CCWNS courses on my fixed gear, so I go slooooooow. Less because of traction and more because my fixed gear is a track bike with lots of toe overlap. But I'm just generally...

    I initially felt silly for keeping my studs on, until I got to the RCP trail at the Lincoln, which had some extended icy spots. Rideable without studs, but I appreciated the extra stability. Things...

    Slightly off-topic, but was this a gravel ride (I'm assuming so given the relation to DK200 and all the gravel tires in the photo)? If so, post the deets?

    If the trails are even as remotely bad as my sidewalk, there's no way I could ride the 12 miles to work. It's only 1.5 inches deep, but was like walking though wet cement.
