    Given the fact that the water level is now up to the underside of the boardwalk just north of Slaters, I'd say a new, higher trail might be in order. When they build it, maybe they could make it out...

    Just to clarify, I did not mean to mock newbies in the above so no offense meant. BTW, the drive/bike option is about as good as it gets for a bike commute. Flat. Scenic. Varied. If I were you I'd do...

    Go to Crazyguyonabike.com and search the journals. It will tell you everything you'd ever want to know. Here's what I know: I confirm that the hills in the east are brutal. The winds on the plains...

    It is astounding to me what lengths politicians will go to to avoid a simple solution that might cost them votes. Just raise the gas tax in 5 cent increments every other month for a couple of years,...

    I disagree. The extra weight at the speeds and the terrain you will be riding is worth the increase in comfort. I have a bad back and my experience with Cannondale road bikes is that they have a very...
