    Arlington Loop Bonus Routes

    I know most of the roads out there, but haven't really correlated them wineries. The ones I'm familiar with are off of 522/Hume Rd, and Naked Mountain (although I think that one is defunct.)

    You'll have to give me a bus-loading lesson some time :)

    Since you appear to be getting pretty comfortable navigating around away from the bike trail, you might want to think about just biking down to the W&OD from Annandale. There are several quite safe...

    Mt Weather is mainly for the climbs. It's pretty but you're pretty much in the trees, so you can't really even see down in the valley very much. You do get to be creeped out by riding past the...

    I got one. Got a good deal on some Bontrager tights I would never have bought otherwise too. Used them today.

    Hi. Just saw the PM, sorry. The marking at the end of the crank arm by the pedal hole says 172.5, so i'm guessing that's the size.

    Yep? I actually almost put this on a bike last week, but then made the current one work. The FSA crank is still new in the box, original plastic wrapping and everything :)

    Hmm, you'd almost have to do a Strava art thing to make it 150 miles one way.

    This one is kind of a "greatest hits". I skipped Mt Weather to "keep the elevation down" :)
