    I'm a fan of the platform-type hitch racks. We have step through bikes in our family and the hanging-by-the-crossbar doesn't work very well. I got a 4-bike sportrack type on Craigslist for $120 I...

    Water also moves debris around. So maybe it was next to the curb where you wouldn't ride through it before it rained. The water moving along the gutter moves the debris out onto the street where...

    I ring my bell well before I approach/slow down to let them know I'm coming. Most people don't signal early enough, just kind of pulling up behind someone then saying "LEFFFT" in a grunt as they...

    Sorry no HP laps or likely Happy Hours for me, but I'm on schedule to put in at least 5 more bike trips this week. My 11-12 mph pace on my Dutch Bike is not helping our speed, sorry.

    I just did some recon by car and my bike commute is still socked in with snow (W&OD Herndon to Pacific Blvd). Hopefully it will be gone enough to ride tomorrow.
