  2. Weekend of October 20 - where to ride with my daughter?

    My wife is heading out of town with the younger daughter for the weekend of October 20th. I'll have the older one and I'm trying to plan a ride. I think her range is probably 30ish miles on the day,...

    Perhaps this thread and this strava route from said thread might help?

    Annapolis to DC isn't the greatest ride. The River Trails is gorgeous.

    Those bollards are unquestionably bad, even if one is generally (gasp) pro-bollard. It's too narrow and too steep there.

    Another option - ride an Xtracycle with kids on the back all the time. You can borrow mine and my kids any time. Once you do that for a while, riding your regular bike will feel like cheating.

    That's clearly an instance of needing a special "Badass Jump over a Truck" button in addition to a regular horn, which is also a brake pedal.

    Even better - the horn is a second brake pedal. Pressing the horn is exactly equivalent to pressing the brake. Name a situation where you would need your horn but pressing the brake is a bad idea.

    So I'm pretty sure the BB on the longtail is the original. So 7400 miles frequently hauling close to 400 pounds (bike + rider + kids + cargo) seems like a pretty good run for a BB. I'll ask the Bike...

    I've never heard BB clicking. Unless I'm hearing it and mistaking it for something else.

    I'll have to check - this might actually be the first BB change, and at 7400 miles, so probably expected.
