    From my experience, the group probably has no idea that they're blocking the trail. The reason they're probably on the trail like that is that they're in a ready-to-move position. Usually when I come...

    Poyntonification of Clarendon Circle

    Curiosity killed the cat and I wanted to have a little fun, so I made a mock-up of what the Poyntonification of Clarendon Circle would look like based on a diagram of the Poynton traffic set-up:

    Was the bus driver behaving improperly? Yes. He was clearly trying to get the jump on you passing through the intersection. Was the bus driver breaking the law? I think so because he cut you off...

    It's not, though. Drivers are not instructed to honk at cyclists as they pass them on the road, although some do it out of being a jerk while others really do think it's helpful to the cyclist. Of...

    I wouldn't expect WABA to get involved in this because it would mean that they were officially condoning/supporting an illegal activity. I think this would work better as an unofficial guide much in...

    Hmm, do I spoil it?



    ...it's a fake. It's an interesting GIF, though, but you can tell that the cars/people have been duplicated (does everyone travel in packs of 4 identical cars?).

    Going out on a limb here

    Okay, I'm going to throw this out and see if it catches. Perhaps this should go onto another thread, but I want some sort of resolution that we can reference.

    Alaska Trip with Biking around Anchorage

    I will be there. I didn't realize I had forgotten to say so, though. I'll bring stuff from my Anchorage bike ride (at the very least a worn-out map) for those who are interested.
