    Starting a long group ride to FairWinds, deciding you can't keep up in the face of the bitter (IE not so fair) winds, bagging it and heading to a much closer brewery, and finding a group of FS...

    Sorry, I thought this was for a reindeer game, looking back I see Steve O actually proposed this as part of the main FS scoring.

    Bizarrely, Strava won't record what beer I drink somewhere, if its actually a brewery and not just a bar, etc. Beerneuring still works though ;)

    That is the same argument you made before. We are going in circles. This is getting silly. Most people don't live near trails. People settle for getting places by taking the lane on 25MPH streets,...

    I am one of the posters who thinks Class 3 ebikes should be on roads. I don't however think they should be ridden on roads by the kinds of riders who find riding on a road like Quincy or Key at...

    Wait, not everyone had arguments about Rawls and the veil of ignorance late nights in the dorm? I guess these days the young people argue about privilege (but see Rawls!) and identity instead.

    And to reiterate, I don't have anything against people riding class 3 ebikes on the streets. In fact, given what car drivers tend to do, I would not get upset if they ride at 28MPH in 25MPH zones...

    I am skeptical that someone who is afraid to ride these particular streets at 20MPH (because on a class 1 they can) really should be riding them at 25MPH. I just don't see that. As HOZN points out,...

    TLDR version

    Its scary for someone riding a class 1 ebike at 20MPH to ride in a road with a motor vehicle going 30MPH.

    Its okay for someone walking at 2MPH with their child or dog (or a frail...

    No, it's also about streets like Quincy, with a speed limit of 25mph (and a door zone bike lane, which, being in the door zone, necessitates swerving into traffic often). Or Key, with a 25 mph speed...
