    On your 1 and 3, I'd think the SmartTrip card could be charged for the time between when the bike was put into the locker until it is removed (i.e., the same SmartTrip has to be used to get the bike...

    I have been commuting on the upper MVT for many years, and this is the worst I've seen of the water seepage, which makes sense given how relentlessly wet is has been. It won't take a drought to make...

    It looks to me like freezingsaddles.org keeps the climbing statistics from the first time it finds the ride. I have an ELEMNT Bolt that gives me too much climbing credit relative to Strava (maybe...

    But not all. I was riding through the tonier section of the Wolf Trap area north of Route 7 the weekend before Halloween and saw a large flock of big black birds of death gathered alongside the road...

    I was scouting routes like this around the detour today and saw the sign on the trail-block fence set off the trail says the detour will start February 18, not 11. Any more updates we should know...

    You don't need to wait for a new bike, all you need is a new front wheel. If you go dynamo, I recommend the Busch and Muller Luxos U headlight. It has the brightest standlight because it has an...

    The crew working on the Lee Hwy redo in Rosslyn was placing jersey barriers on the trail just past the IOD heading to TR Island. I diverted across Key Bridge because they were swinging the things...

    When I was a mountain biker, I used to carry a thing called a pocket chain saw that I got from a camping supply store. I think it would have made shorter work of the log than the machete.

    I think your problem is that these replica reindeer antlers fail to capture key aspects of the original design. They would be more accurate if each was rotated 90 degrees from their current...

    Maybe, like with travel teams and house leagues in youth soccer, we need two levels of team competition. "Freezing Saddles Sleaze League" teams are open to all participants and follow the rules as...

    If Strava segments are assigned identifying numbers in order of establishment (which I think is the case), to prevent "gaming the game" you would count only segments with lower numbers than a segment...

    How about a prize for most Strava segments ridden at least once during Freezing Saddles? It would be technically feasible. Also, people can add segments at any time which would give the game a bit...

    rcannon100 contends that Arlington's confusing street names were a Cold War tactic to delay or prevent a Soviet invading force from reaching the Pentagon.

    They were there again today at ~7:00 am. Working on the overhead wires, it appeared. Kind of a surprise coming over the rise behind the sound wall.

    I can't prove it scientifically, but from observing my own Raynaud's, it seems to be triggered most by the combination of low blood sugar and cold rather than just cold alone. Another excuse to stop...
