    Have you been to a race? There are plenty of racers who aren't skinny.

    My point is that if we ban people according to the danger they pose when maxing out their ABILITY, and we think ebikes...

    The policy discussion is about whether to allow ebikes on the trail, and if so, what the assist should be limited to. Bikes can go as fast as the user gets them going.

    We've gone over why speed is better set at 20mph (to keep up with traffic for the inevitable times when ebikes are on roads; also, it's super easy for an adult to clear 20mph even on a CaBi on a...

    I disagree that the trails are not designed for ebikes, or at least beyond the fact that trails aren't designed for bikes, really, or designed for the volume they often see (and are likely to see as...

    The question is what are you studying. In this case, it's not "do ebikes make any given rider faster" but "would allowing ebikes on trails* increase speeds of all bikes on trails." The reason...

    But they studied who was using the trail. It's irrelevant _why_ they were using the trail.

    Snow had covered the Custis & TR Bridge this morning. But as a benefit to the cold, it was not slick at all - just squeaky. Easy peasy to ride on.

    I'll probably still take Key Bridge home,...
