    One thing that isn't free is Alan's email address. I will sell it to you for 5 bucks!

    Might as well post it since a bunch of y'all saw it. We(the folks headed to Sang Froid distillery from Md Meadworks) were leaving this tiny little park trail from 41st to Crittenden in Hyattsville. The good people of Hyattsville parks dept obviously expected the trail to be used by walkers, or kids biking to the sidewalk, not the sort of folks who would bike onto the street. So after the flexpost at trail end you have to jog left on the sidewalk a couple of feet before a hard right into the street and then up Crittenden. Somehow everyone else did this with no problem, but yours truly fell over. I got right up no damage to me or the bike, though once home I did notice a small bruise on my right thigh (I will spare y'all a pic) Given how my feet were feeling at that point, the bruise was nothing.

    Yes! Welcome to part of my regular commute home. I take this little shortcut in order to avoid going uphill on route 1 during busy traffic times. The first few times I did this, I did the left and then right like your group did. But for a while now I have opted to actually go right onto the sidewalk and then look over my left shoulder in order to judge when it's safe to use one of the drive-way cut-throughs to go out onto the road and continue on in the same direction.

    Heal fast.

    Default London Bridge Prize contestants 2019

    Here’s my list of London Bridge contestants. Who am I missing?

    Some of the crashes were really, really bad. Others were comical. Some were soul-crushing. Several hurt like hell. Some were all of the above. Quality and quantity both count.

    Hugs and healing wishes to all. w&w

    So Bob James doesn't win outright just because he was riding on ice with soft cushy snow to land in all winter? Good deal.

    So I managed to do an endo on a CaBi Plus yesterday on 21st street on the way home from work. Iím not exactly sure how I did it. I was going probably 8 miles at the time and used both brakes. A taxi stopped somewhat abruptly in front of me.

    The right elbow is a bit sore and the right knee got tweaked a bit again but Iím ok.

    I don't know if wheels&wings is going to sponsor this prize again for 2020, but may I suggest that we just use #londonbridge as a hashtag going forward to eliminate some maintenance that has to happen every year now?

    I've updated the leaderboard to allow either #londonbridge or #fs2020londonbridge

    And we already have 2 folks who have tagged #londonbridge - Adriana and MaryEllsworth!

    Just to point out to new participants that this is a #thing.

    The bike's fine, thanks for asking (and so am I)
