    Sounds like you are/will be pretty happy either way, but if you do change it, all you have to do is drop the capital E and you'd be pretty much the same. Congrats, btw. Love stories like this.

    I was looking at the BART site, and it appears that even they say that bikes are not allowed on crowded train cars.

    Works in San Francisco, why not here? Oh yeah, right.

    ETA that I think it is a great *idea* that will never work in practice.

    A few weeks ago on the other side of that bridge I witnessed a guy on a bicycle leaning over a bike locked to the Kennedy Center rack and rummaging around in the fishing tackle box that person keeps...

    I'm sure this doesn't need saying, but if the construction sends folks over to the I-66 bridge instead, please be careful. Not only has Trollheim been wet for days on end, but there are slimy leaves...

    I think that, because of where the curb cuts are, you'd be less likely to hit the one further downhill. The one further up the hill comes into sight a little late too; as you round the corner, your...

    Noted yesterday and this morning that they have added the "orange cones that fix everything" on both sides of the pole, so yeah, they're on it.

    Thx, Judd. Can probably help out a bit on occasion.

    Don't for a second think I'm faulting the Park Service. I'm a big fan who purchases the yearly park pass every year. (Because my $80 is going to...

    People were posting about the root heaves on the Custis near the bridge to nowhere, but those hardly rate compared to the root heaves on the MVT near Memorial Bridge. I actually almost went over the...

    So many of us do this that it's a wonder anyone uses it at the most crowded times.

    The MVT really is substandard at this point, with the exception of the sections that have recently been redone.

    Is like with cars. You shouldn't have to check to make sure drivers are actually stopping when their light changes red, but you do; otherwise, you get dead if you go.

    I'm always aware of the tendency for drivers to lose it and go off the parkway when I ride just south of Trollheim, so I ride quickly and am ready to take (probably ineffective) evasive action. I...

    I don't think you should have to, but looks like it's necessary, times being what they are. Bonus is that if there's no one there, then you don't even need to stick your arm out.

    Those are really pretty. If only I believed in fenders.

    I've seen similar in a copper color that I almost want to buy and just hang up on the wall somewhere.

    "Wheeeeeee!"

    Checked first to make sure no one was coming, and also that the lip wouldn't flat me.
