No, no, we've got this covered.
Just in case you need to shop around:
Biking at a steady 15mph consumes energy at the rate of about 22 miles per whopper (with cheese). My commute is 30 miles (RT) by car (Corolla, avg 36mpg), and 43 miles by bike. The GPS estimates...
It's not too late to go all Mad Max.
or you can just take to the river.
WABA sent out an action notice for the WB&A trail (which is great), but it needs some editing (not terrible, but not great). Since the email is slow, I'll post my edits here in bold.
If I could find a boat anchor for under $5, I'd offer it to the leading person who's last on their team (currently Peter DeNitto).

You: The SUV blowing through
Me: Singing "Yo, stop sign" in a tad-operatic voice
I... I'm not sure why I did that.
Giro Alpineduro boots after their first commute. The soles are quite grippy, which is more than I can say for most cycling shoes I've tried. The 47s fit well even though Giro claims it's equivalent...
With two commutes, I've managed to get half my point total from last year. Gonna have to pace myself to keep the bar low.
If you select a size and width, it jumps up significantly (up to 25 gbp for 700c).
Hm, no, that's not it. I'm really not sure what Schwalbe tire it is. Any guesses? The Marathon Winters are going for $76 a pair.
They lack a model number, but judging from their description it's the Winter HS 396 (as opposed to the Marathon or Ice Spiker models).
Hi, I'm Ron.
I'm a researcher over at the Naval Research Lab. I'll be competing for the spot of Team Boat Anchor, as my ~45 mile round-trip commute from Greenbelt takes about 3 1/2 hours,...
Another week of this weather and you won't need a bridge to cross the Potomac.
Looking at the forecast, I guess we're waiting until Monday or Tuesday for it to clear.
Never strap your child to the roof of the car. It ruins the gas mileage.
Did you read what you quoted?
Heh - those were my only warm parts last night. Less time outside will help to. Between being out of shape and JBAB closing the Firth-Sterling exit, I was in the saddle for 2 1/2 hours. You started...
Brrr. Kit failed to do its job on the way home (by which I mean it didn't keep me warm, not that I was arrested for flashing). Aggravating factors: 12 degrees cooler, a lack of sunlight, and a bit...
It's a dangerous hobby.
Woot, almost the same as me. 5'11" 155lbs, 21.5BMI. Aiming for ~145lbs (max college weight), or 20.2BMI.
First commute of the year, and first ride ever in 'kit' (bib tights, jersey and jacket, but clunky boots since my cycling shoes are too vented for this weather). Ride was good, clothing was... OK? ...
I wore through half a rim and several sets of pads before learning this. I started cleaning my rims every time I oil the chain (with different rags, of course). That tends to be every 200 miles or...
I've been betting against the rain whenever the forecast called for <30% chance of precipitation, so I shouldn't have been all that surprised when the skies called my bluff last night.
Starting off at 6pm, it rained on and off for the first 12 miles before becoming blustery and cold. A hot bath, warm clothes, and mug cakes make the world a better place.
Coincidentally, I named...
