    I was coming in here to post how wonderful and invigorating my (late) morning commute was... what a bummer to find a hit and run instead!

    I've got to echo the halo imprint thing... it does take about an hour to go away. I've been using them (full and headband) for rides up to an hour and they do keep my eyes from stinging, even when...

    But you can't call it that or all the messengers will show up and kick all our butts.

    Last one I did involved easter eggs and Mapei jerseys, and was put on by someone who went by "Spud". Fun times.

    I'd bet on a cyclist. I've picked up people's panniers before - one had gov't ID and gov't issued cell phone in there. If your wallet was in there someone will probably find you.

    it's raining bikes. I pulled this basic SS/FG from the Patuxent by my office today. Rust on the spokes, rusty gunky water pouring from every hole. I suppose the tubes and tires are still good -...

    For your situation it sounds like a bike that's designed to be pretty upright would be the best fit. A disc-brake hybrid would be my choice, plus chain guard, full fenders, and a rack. I personally...

    Thanks!
    It's really hard to know looking at Maps... I'll have to throw in some Rt 197 or 198 to get over to Main Street, and I know both of those stink because I drive on them.
