    You are so diligent Ted. I have never ridden 50 States with an official marshal. Did it one year following Eric Guilliland (sp?). Didn't have to look at my cue sheet for 20 miles. (Then I lost track...

    The ONLY way to see the city. Just do it. It takes all day. It's hard. It's worth the effort. Plus you get to go the pizza and beer party at the finish with a couple hundred other bicycling nuts who...

    This has been going on for the last couple of months. Bobco85 is right. The glass is nearly always on one of the trail bridges or underpasses where glass can be smashed against a wall. I don't know...

    Morningside is another wonderful Virginia suburban road with a ditch for a shoulder. You have to take the lane.

    I ride through tunnels whenever it feels safe. It's probably safer than going around a traffic circle.

    This is not an argument. This is abuse.

    Oh,..., you want the MVT for an argument.

    Now that I think about it, the next cyclist who passes me and calls me "Sir" is askin' for it. (Except I couldn't catch them if my life depended on it.)

    Last night, I gave unsolicited advice to a non-cycling woman at Gravelley Point. She was there with four kids who were about 4 or 5 years old. They came to watch the planes. She was pointing up at...

    I thought the same thing when Nelle Pierson used the statistic a few times. Then on my 15 mile ride home I counted. I did this three days in a row. Until I saw 100 cyclists each day. 24, 25, 24. Hard...

    The city has done nothing to provide safe accommodation to MVT users during construction at Canal Plaza. Add in the garbage trucks blocking the trail at the nearby hotel and you have to wonder how...

    I also wiped out on this bridge years ago. Tore my left arm to the bone and dislocated my left knee. As bad as this section of the trail is, it used to be much worse with an additional switchback...

    There is a man that I call the Trash Walker. He picks up trash every morning on his walks north of Old Town. So the news isn't all bad.

    I have a similar problem mounting tires on my Bike Friday. The worst is mounting Schwalbe tires. There is a trick. Once you get part of the tire on, pinch the "on" part down into the well of the rim....
