    So, the gate at the 41st St S turn had been lumberjacked open on Sunday--thanks, I was prepared to do so myself. Coming back up, a guy in front of me tried the S turn anyway and fell over on the...

    Someone had posted about the 41st St S-turn having water lines going over it--sorry, can't find it now. Before, the gate had been opened so you could just ride straight up the hill, but someone has...

    Was caught by surprise with this while running on Sunday. Note that if you're the kind of person who does this kind of thing, it's easy enough to get around on foot. In fact, people were fishing from...

    Oh, that's the place with the beehives I believe. So cool.

    Welcome back (though we've never met, I remember your posts).

    And someone please give this man a better title than "Very Senior Member." "Venerated Cast-Iron Stalwart Senior Member" at the least.

    This is what annoys me. If we're not going to clear our walkways, fine (although if private citizens have to do it, why don't governments?), but it really is ridiculous to plow the snow onto the...

    This one kinda hits home a bit. I go through that intersection every now and then, but go right, turn right again on OD, and take the first right into the neighborhood. I don't proceed if there are...

    I bought panniers and was going to try them, but the rack is only on one bike, and I only use that bike when it snows. Can't (won't) put a rack and panniers on my road bike, which is what I normally...

    I'm sitting it out this year so that I can engage in other outdoor activities I love without feeling like I'm letting team members down, but I'll say hey when I see the ankle bands around.

    I wouldn't call it a war. Just different ways of doing things, and if we talk about it long enough, being cyclists, there'll be a ... skirmish.

    I carry the laptop in a Banjo Brothers waterproof backpack. Carefully situated there among all the clothes, it's cushioned enough unless I get run over.

    Anyone have any info on the car that went up the Custis below the S-turn and took out a lightpost? The car clearly came down the I-66 ramp, hopped the median, went through the Lyon Village rear...

    The trail is fine for toodling along, but it would in most cases not be safe for a cyclist (and especially a group of cyclists) engaged in a training ride to ride on it.

    I'm not that fast, but...

    Then you'd have a mountain bike.

    I do find the 33s a bit squirrely in loose gravel, such as the brief downhill on the towpath just south of the beltway. I generally find that if I hold on loosely...

    25s, that's mental for that distance. I mean, can be done, sure, but doesn't seem worth the hassle dodging all the rocks and muck when 33s will go right over and through them.
