    I fit into that category as well. More miles but almost no commutes. At the start, I enjoyed the reduced traffic on roads I had not previously attempted (McLean, toward Great Falls,...

    Personally, I don't think the pole placement is bad, but they probably should have done a touch better with the painting. Still not terrible, and better say than on East Basin Drive, where carelessly...

    Came along too late to vote, but this was the clear winner anyway. Congrats on a great caption.

    Used to do that when I was a younger runner. Ah to be young again and not so painfully slow.

    I don't much like eBikes on the trails, but I'd never even think of yelling at one. To each his own,...

    So sorry, I'm afraid that for me, this one got lost in the many, many posts this year. I enjoyed last year's "calendar"--it's up on the wall in the kitchen. Hopefully we can try again next year, as...

    You said you had your bike leash in the handlebar bag! Great, now we can't go in. We'll have to go around the long way.

    They would have altered the chain length when they did the configuration--to get rid of all the slack from no longer have a rear derailleur or needing the big ring. The dropout is visible in the pic.

    That's certainly the case, and it's a pretty clever solution. Instead of installing a rear freewheel or fixed cog, this person just kept what was there and was able set it at the ratio he or she...

    I will miss that light as well--Fairfax has way too many lights that won't change for a cyclist.

    I will also miss bombing down Cedar from Gallows/Electric with the reduced traffic that made it...

    That's 6 Strava segments; loki could have 6 KOMs! [love the username]

    I rode around the traffic island from all three directions this afternoon. I actually like it and feel it's an improvement. Other than the silly left-turn arrow coming from the west, which is similar...

    Not a strawman; a strawman would be if I took someone else's argument and distorted or simplified it in order to argue against it more easily than I could the actual point being made. I simply made a...

    "Strawman"--I don't think you understand what that term means, and apparently you get insulted far too easily. No one is going to run over the center island because the arrow is poorly done, and...

    The arrows are poorly drawn, but overall, it's no different from the little traffic islands designed to slow down traffic on places like Key. Motorists complain about those because they have to slow...

    Ah, on reread, could be. I thought that since he had been rear-ended, the car rack had been damaged or destroyed.

    If you're still looking for a trunk rack, I have a Thule you can have. It's pretty adjustable and worked for Subaru Impreza, Honda Fit, and a Subaru Crosstrek. Was able to get it to work with a...

    Way late, but I threw a few in. Saw the article on ArlNow.

    I haven't been by here much lately b/c not much has been going on, then I got logged out and could never seem to log back in. It's the...

    I've seen it in Massachusetts (Cape Cod) where two trails merge, but not locally.

    I doubt it was the MJ; more likely the press-fit bottom bracket on that Trek.

    That's a beautiful bike/color. It's rare that "surprise me" works out so well.

    Tangentially related perhaps, but I've found a really nice alternative to the W&OD through there up to the point where the trail runs along Route 9 near the traffic circle. I'm sure some others know...

    Early mornings seem to be when folk go out thinking it's cooler, but I find the humidity in the morning worse so go out later in the day (confession that I love hot weather, so YMMV). Bonus is fewer...

    I did this through 311 last year (I think; maybe the year before?) when one of the trees kind of fell over the path, leaving a tunnel with poison ivy at the end. They came out and cleared it...

    I have blown tubes like that when the bead was too far out, but not when it was too far in. My heart stopped racing, eventually, though the ringing in the ears will never cease.

    Doggo already...
