    This is a great start, and covers most of the main concerns we've seen over the last few years. I especially appreciate that they recognize that moving vehicles have to be a higher priority than...

    MVT Thursday, about 10 AM

    Apologies first, to the fully lycra-fied rider who was apparently drafting me when I had to slam on my brakes Thursday AM between Gravely Point and the bridges. I tried to catch up and be cool but...

    Do you think they'd accept the constructive criticism that we need drive side pictures?

    The original deadline was 2010, actually, as set in the bike/ped master plan of 2005. (Didn't happen for a lot of reasons, only one of which is "they didn't try to make it happen".) As of about a...

    Actually, in two places on the MAME site they direct people to park in the garages. There's no mention of street parking, and I'm pretty sure the church self-regulates who can drive up and park...

    Contour stuff will quickly go out of stock unless someone buys their patents and starts production. I kinda wish they would because their mounts were awesome, but they would have to take on GoPro,...

    I've never had a rim failure like this. Other factors have caused rim damage or loss before I've had to worry about wear and tear.

    Other variables beyond thickness may come into play. Smooth road...

    An ultimatum like that could happen at any time with no change in outcome. It won't.

    Looked to me like the GPS guidance they showed was for Whitehurst Freeway, not Water Street. GPS doesn't do well with elevation differences or slight displacements, so it wouldn't recalculate or warn.

    I agree about larger tires at lower pressure. The Trek 7.5 should be able to handle some pretty big ones. Also I agree with padding for your hands.

    My concern is not just what it means to cyclists and other vulnerable road users, but the message it DOESN'T send to drivers.
