    Excellent. And if you do need auto-type coverage, Better World Traveler's Club is a bike-friendly alternative.

    Good luck Josephine; I do not envy you.

    Excellent. I know we sometimes feel like second-class citizens, but that's not too bad, really. Kirby Road in Fairfax was washed out by the same flood and is still closed and will be for a while.

    Columbia is awesome. Learned about it on a Spoke ride and, like you, I find it a better crossing than at Washington.

    Mine got all sprungish immediately, but both still work. It's a soft sound, but then I'm a soft-spoken, gentle sort of guy.

    I've been taking S. Four Mile Run Drive (and Arlington Mill Drive) more often lately. Having to beg to cross using the trail is going to entrench that behavior.

    I can slow down. You can slow down. Some of us have mad skillz. You can't get everyone to slow down. Someone will run into it or someone else avoiding it. You can say it's that person's fault if you...

    Appreciate that info since I was planning to drop by after work. I don't think the email I had received stated when the sale would be over or move would happen.

    BicycleSpace on K is closing and they're having a consolidation sale. Not sure of the details, but ya'll should support them if you need stuff. I'm sad to see them go. Their mechs saved me a few...

    Saw a driver almost use the trail at the upper Marriott entrance Friday afternoon. Maryland plates. We're gonna need more bollards. :rolleyes:

    I looked more carefully today and it is on the edge of the line going up from the curb cut. So, it's sort of out of the way going west, but eastbound it would be less so since the curb isn't guiding...

    Ten years straight for me now, with my first day at work here being the only time I drove in.

    I suppose, technically, that the day after my knee surgery when I got dropped off was sort of...

    Mr. Happy must be very strong for his size because those Jersey barriers are completely gone now.

    Interesting, I had mentioned on your strava ride that it might be loose, but it doesn't really look it. I suppose it could be from a worn chain or ring, or maybe a bit of debris getting between the...

    They already have about three quarters of the width fenced off, such that you really have to slow down or even stop to not hit tourists at the bottleneck. Not that I'm complaining if it keeps the...

    PA Ave. at the WH to be closed for seven months, starting Wednesday. They say you can still cycle through on the sidewalk, but it's not really worth it with the pedestrian traffic. I've never found a...

    I noticed today that it started flashing right when a pedestrian started crossing--not before, but right as he stepped into the intersection. It really should start a few second prior to crossing.

    If a Lumberjack uses a bicycle but does not record it on Strava, does it count as a ride?

    So I got three (3!) emails from DC 311 saying they were closing this ticket and they couldn't find the problem. It's only been 15 months, and one of us "fixed" the sign already, so no doubt they...

    Though you don't need it at the moment, clear fingernail polish is a good alternative when you can't find the color or temporarily until you do. Keeps it from corroding at least. I always keep clear...

    I too am bad at bunny hops uphill. Downhill fine; uphill I'm likely to mistime it and make it worse.

    Yes, they did this yesterday between the morning and afternoon commutes. I never minded the westbound lip, but eastbound always made me worry about flatting, though I never did.
