    The REI in Bailey's Crossroads probably has the best selection in the area, which is kinda sad, since even there it isn't great...like you, I've found that apparel is one area where local shops are...

    My studded tires are on my MTB, which I rode today...neither light nor aerodynamic. Made for a long ride at 5am...

    I don't know about the trails, but the roads were fine. I suppose they would've been icy, but VDOT put down more salt than there was snow.

    This system seems more complicated, so it must be better!*

    Also, my Freeze Points rank is 107 higher than my regular rank. So I may not always ride, but when I do, it's during the shittiest...

    Although it was wet and gross and I was hoping for snow rather than wintry mix, at least this morning was a good temp for rain gear. I was warm enough to be comfortable, but was able to ride at a...

    Textbook wintry mix, but as of 6am, nothing was sticking and the roads were just very wet. I was a little annoyed to have to ride on studs, but my studded-tire bike is my only one with fenders. But...

    When I left my house at 5:30am, the grass was barely wet and there was no frost on the cars to indicate the roads might be icy. Sure enough, the roads in north Arlington and bordering Fairfax were...

    Except the docks are solar powered.

    The rest isn't even worth acknowledging, as it's just Heritage Foundation boilerplate drivel. He probably just cut/pasted the word "bikeshare" into a previous...

    Probably not. Although there are restrooms in East Potomac Park, which is a slight detour from the route.



    The dotted lines are tunnels. My understanding is that the route is entirely on roads,...

    That argument probably wouldn't get you very far in Denmark. They love their royalty.

    Can't really help on the hostels themselves, but the H St. hostel would be significantly closer (just a couple of blocks) to Union Station, which has some bike storage options that might suit your...

    Surprisingly, VDOT (but not Arlington, AFAICT) was still clearing the streets, including some bike lanes, as of yesterday. I noticed this morning that all the piles of snow in the right-hand land and...

    I guess I should rephrase...their sizing charts are generally accurate, but their stuff tends to fit much more snugly than many might prefer/expect, particularly if they're used to US-fit stuff.

    Didn't the BikeDC ride have a "family" ride? I seem to remember the ride getting jammed up at Iwo Jima by about a thousand little kids and their parents with trail-a-bikes and trailers and training...

    I'd probably avoid carbon, but that's about it. Well...I'd also say go with disc brakes if possible, since the added weight might burn up rim brakes, and wider tires would probably help with...

    So, if you're not in a car, VDOT doesn't give a shit about you. Good to know. I wonder how this lines up with ADA guidelines and some constitutional civil rights issues. Plowing over sidewalks AS A...

    Castelli stuff generally fits smaller than their sizing charts indicate, and smaller than most non-Euro brands, so order a size larger than you would in those brands. So if you wear a medium in say,...

    Although the temps were above freezing, there was definitely ice on some of the lesser-traveled roads and sides of roads. Definitely warrants caution until the sun comes out.

    Just beware Castelli sizing. Usually runs a size small. Good stuff though.

    Unfortunately misses the highlights of BikeDC, namely riding on RCP, 66, and the GWMP, but I don't blame WABA for that. This is probably about as good as they're gonna get.

    This is the west side of the Lee Hwy/W&OD intersection. Looks like they cleared snow from the right turn lane on Fairfax and piled it onto the trail/sidewalk. Definitely was not like this yesterday....

    You should get the points just for the mind- and ass-numbing drudgery of riding circles in a cold parking garage.

    Fairfax did the same thing...but the worst part is they did it in front of all 3 schools along my commute (Haycock ES, Longfellow MS, and McLean HS). While these schools do seem to have high car...

    I considered going that way last night, but thought going downhill on the Spurt (since that's what we're calling it now) would be easier, but gravity was not helpful. Also, the cleared pathway up to...
