    I think map apps have a low resolution map of the world internal to the app. GPS units with detailed maps of the US have a couple GBs of storage to hold the map data. For a map app to not require a...

    This may not be helpful if you need a map and are not on wifi. Or if you absolutely have to surf the net without wifi.

    I'm afraid that article does not compensate for exposure rate. If the average person (over the entire population) spent as much time commuting on a bicycle as commuting in a car that would be a...

    It don't matter if they don't think the same, only that they vote the same. But then again, we don't have a parliamentary system.:rolleyes:

    Well, do you slow down for guiltometers when you are on your bike?:rolleyes:

    I just noticed the speed gauge on the CCT. When you accelerate to 20, a white light goes on. What happens at 25? ...

    Umm... The speed limit through Westover proper is 30, not that it should be. (I think it is under VDOT's control.) I don't think the ACPD can arbitrarily change a speed limit by placing a...

    So, to get the change we want, we need to elect the candidate from the party that is the same party of those with a desperate lack of experience that current head County government?

    Gee... Maybe if they had class sizes the same as when we were kids, we wouldn't have these problems. (Test scores were higher back then, weren't they?)

    If I'm not mistaken, the percentage of drunk dead pedestrians and drunk dead drivers is higher than the percentage of drunk dead cyclists.

    washcycle has a discussion of statistical issues.

    Actually, that wasn't my question. Mstone said that he saw the solution as sufficient infrastructure so that e-bikers would choose not to ride on trail and, instead, ride on on-street, presumably,...

    Drinking while biking means only one hand on the bars. This is very dangerous.

    From what I understand, bunny hopping is key to a skid stop. In any event, no matter how badly you try and fail to reposition your pedals while stopped, I don't see how this can result in a flaming...

    Seeing dcv's demonstration today, it looks you use your clipped in foot to raise the back of the bike, then you rotate. I don't think I can get the leverage with miniclips to lift the rear of the...

    I would think repositioning the pedals would be difficult with platforms alone, but I have miniclips. Since I'm lazy, I've also developed a technique of sort of hop starting, pushing off the ground...

    Well, hipsters like me can't afford those fancy cycling shoes.:rolleyes:
