    Yes, I see your point. I can see that speed limits are most practical on routes that simply bar certain types of transportation (e.g., no pedestrians walking down Wilson Blvd, no bicycles on the...

    I see you point, but I guess I'd say there are rules, and then there are norms. To me, the value in a speed limit sign is the norm that it communicates -- that it isn't OK to go as fast as you please...

    Apologies if this has been stated already, but "remove the point cap" refers to eliminating the limit on the number of "team points" an individual rider could contribute in a week, is that right? So...

    I don't agree. I'm not a hater. I've been riding here for 20 years. I think ebikes make speed limits a good idea. if we're going to allow vehicles capable of going nearly 30mph on MUPs, vehicles...

    Chris, like you, I'm just baffled by the need for different speed limits for various modes (scooter, e-bike, pedal bike) and settings (trail, street). What do you think is their reasoning for a such...

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I'm a bike person so I'm willing to drop $300 on a weatherproof cam that takes looping footage, but only if it's dependable, since I would be using it every day. I've...

    Bike camera recommendation?

    I saw a mention of bike cameras in a recent thread. I searched for the topic, but only found threads that went dormant years ago.

    I'm interested in a not-too expensive camera that won't go kaput...

    Yes, Peter White Cycles has them, and other online retailers do too. I use a B&M Ixon IQ, which is battery powered, and doesn't require a generator hub. It uses AA rechargeables, but you don't need...

    Bike headlamps with cutoff patterns are just great. I really encourage everyone to give one a try this winter. Not only are they better for fellow trail riders, they are better for their owners as...

    Carmel is also famous for having over 100 traffic roundabouts. The longtime mayor there sounds like a force of nature.

    Yes, that was me. It's a Crust Clydesdale fork on a old budget Trek "mountain" bike. Unloaded, the handling is no different than a normal bike, just a little harsh because the fork is so stout. The...

    It'd be nice if it was harder to pick, but that still took effort and skill. Not a 5-second Bic pen job, a 4 minute, burglarious tools job.

    My experience was similar. I can't recall if the registration question was how many miles do you ride a week, or how many miles will you ride? I want to think it was the former, and I said something...

    Yes, that is the nature of a PBL. The level of parking turnover isn't trivial; the more turnover there is and the more the PBL is used, the more potential for collisions. How frequently pedestrians...
