    yeah, I bought an extra set of those for a second bike, it wasn't all that much. (don't have any of them any more, youngest kid is on a 26" bike. :D )

    Yeah, I gave up on the WOD more than a month ago. So far I'm managing to find enough low-volume/bottom-tier local trails to get some miles in, but they are painfully boring and unpleasant miles. I'm...

    It's questionable for all kinds of reasons. But this is a time to be safe and not take any chances, innit? I mean, every time you bike you breath a molecule that was once inhaled by Julius Caesar,...

    It's a ridiculous ask to have DOT people out putting up cones so people can play outside right now. I'm sorry, I don't believe that the sidewalks anywhere in the region (that is, not desirable...

    There is already plenty of room for people to spread out, even if they simply don't like the room that's available. I don't understand your apparent fixation on making sure everyone can have an epic...

    Or, if people can't figure out any place to ride than the W&OD, they should just not ride and take a walk instead. The parks are closing specifically because people aren't dispersing, and instead are...
