    The conclusory statement that the protected lanes are safer is unproven. It's logical, to be sure, but should not be stated as a fact. The only fact is that they felt safer to women, and that's...

    I yell pretty damn loud, and it's saved me more than once. If others feel they can't yell as loudly, then they may need more than a bell.

    The rent had to have been ferocious. I used to patronize them at their old location. The wrenches were great about helping me get small parts that other bike shops couldn't be bothered with, like...

    I dunno. It's so chaotic that drivers have to be careful and drive slowly. I think order and smooth flow lulls drivers into driving too fast, and on mental auto-pilot.

    The stretch of RCP between Calvert and Pierce Mill has seen a few high profile security issues in the past, though mostly a decade or more ago. I often avoided it more because the trail was so...

    There are many people who ride that route. I did it for 8 years and still do on occasion. Most riders just stay on Beach Drive all the way to where it connects to Broad Branch, then pick up the RCP...

    That's how I broke my finger on the old Indian River Inlet bridge on the Delaware shore. It was closed to car traffic until it could be torn down, so we cyclists were jauntily cruising down the...

    So I watched the news this morning about Chain Bridge being shut down and saw, in the background of the shot, a cyclist coming down the hill toward the Bridge and stopping. Does anyone know if they...

    Wimps. I saw a grand total of 5 riders on the CCT this morning. On the plus side, it did allow me to belt out many a stanza of "Baby Shark"

    Don't cheap out. You need rugged if you're going to wear it every day, and what is the point if you're not?

    I stopped to patch someone's tube this morning. They'd never seen a tube before. And they asked if I used the same pump to fill the tube and the tire.

    We are generally speaking a self-selected community of safety weenies, arguing over safety weenie minutiae. Needless to say, I'm very proud.

    If it's fall, it must be time for the light wars to resume.

    In the DC area, people more often than not respect the bike lanes (yes, I know that there are many, many counterexamples, but in general they do). In NY, no one respects the bike lanes.

    Never did that. I found pretty much any bike would fit in the trunk of a Crown Vic, which is what every cabbie drove in the 90's and early aughts.

    I've seen no evidence that cyclists' judgment in assessing traffic situations is any better than any other modal users. I think any notion that situation X will be okay if we just have more...

    I don't mind the debate, but the core principle, in my mind, is that cyclists are simply not a sufficient modal share that this would create an issue. If half of all traffic were bikes, this would be...

    To the rider who peppered me with questions about the L Street cycletrack and my helmet cam before excitedly exclaiming this was her first time bike commuting in 5 years, I repeat: That's awesome.
