    Are you still curious about banana guarding? Lavender t-shirt slinging? Prize managing? Figuring out which comes first: Table folding or table unfolding?

    All these (and more!) are the exciting...

    What about bells? It will be like cats--so folks always know when a Freezing Saddle participant is coming.

    This page from Bikeyface's new book reminded me of this thread, so I thought I'd share it here. I particularly enjoy the pothole monsters hungry for bikes.

    Has anyone else had a chance to ride the detour? Curious how it is working for folks.

    GREAT POINT. Please start appropriate thread for discussion.

    This is all good info, and just for fun, here's a blog I wrote last winter where I crunched weather NOAA data for the last three winters to show how many rideable days there are in the colder months,...

    You: Still definitely Steve...

    Yeah, seems like there is. I feel like the information about why someone might not be in a bike lane might be useful to curious drivers. BA had someone tweet at us asking about the position of a...

    This is definitely important, too. Seems a slightly different problem, but also related to education and awareness.
  15. Definitely classic, but a little too tongue in...

    Definitely classic, but a little too tongue in cheek maybe? But the same idea, get someone to realize that there are legit reasons to depart the bike lane, including what scoot says, too.

    Klizzotte, you're hitting on a lot of the points I've thought about, too, from the signs being confusing to most successful interventions.

    And DMV would be great, but I think for most of us...
  17. Hey! Why isn't that person on a bike in the bike lane?

    Has anyone ever seen a fun and friendly visual that would answer the question in the heading -- the "Hey! Why isn't that person on a bike in the bike lane?"

    I have had a few aggressive driver...

    Found along the Custis Trail, near Quinn St on the downhill side at around 7:00 pm on 7/18.

    Curiously dry despite the rain, so check your bags if this sounds like it...

    Are you great at high fives?

    Do you appreciate making people's day by giving them free things?
    Are you mildly pleasant after consuming coffee early in the morning?

    If any of this describes you even a little bit, Bike to Work...
  23. Anyone out there biking through colder temps than they did last year?

    I'd love to do a short profile on a new-ish winter biker for BikeArlington's newsletter-- just a few questions that shouldn't take more that 20 minutes of your time. Fun and glory await!
