    The riverside lane of the CCT was a nightmare, with black ice and packed snow for long stretches. I was very glad to have studs. Below Foundry Branch, it was also unplowed and fairly treacherous. The...

    About a half inch of snow on the DC section of the CCT. Might be suboptimal on skinny tires, but those on gravel or CX tires will have a fun ride. Unless, like me, you're riding north into the...

    I had some issues getting my gravel tires to seat after a puncture a few weeks ago...putting the tires on and letting them sit by a furnace vent for a few hours made a big difference. But to avoid...

    I guess maybe if his Garmin device doesn't have BT and he has to manually upload rides? Like you, I turn on my Garmin, it auto-connects to my phone, auto-uploads the ride to GC when I'm done, then GC...
