    I ride self-supported double centuries with a bit of cheese on a bagel, one Clif-type bar and a can of magic (sugary, caffeinated soda, drunk with thirty miles to go). Usually, I won't eat breakfast...

    You should see the ones my son gets. He earns spare change tutoring people in math and computer science.

    Having lived in a city where the cyclists, for a brief one decade window, did follow the traffic laws perfectly (imposed by a large contingent of bicycle cops), I agree that motorist will hate...

    Although I assume the OP lives in/near Brookings, Harris Beach is open year round. I've used it in January, February, March, May, June, July, September, October, November and December. (I wonder how...

    What is this nonsense about motorists thinking? Of course motorists don't think. They merely react according to their training. Currently, we don't train them to obey the law. In fact, we discourage...

    I often ride from Eugene to Davis, leaving the coast at the Russian River, during March. Many times I have only one or two days with rain (and the associated headwinds). It's a bit of a crap-shoot...

    Two years ago when my wife and I were in Seattle to pick up a new tandem (and ride it 400 miles to get it home), she mentioned to the shop owner that she was having some wrist issues similar to the...

    Wow, I've had totally opposite experiences with the companies you have successfully dealt with.

    There aren't many cycling-related companies that I consider poison and just won't deal with anymore,...

    I agree that going before Memorial Day or after Labor Day is the best time. Also, unlike the inland valleys, the weather is often quite cool on the coast (relatively speaking) during the summer. The...

    If you're going to hit the coast, go ahead and jump onto hwy 1. Don't try to ride in from the coast on hwy 128 or hwy 20. Stay on hwy 1 to the Russian River and then come east, either in the hills or...

    Driving as a right? Since when? Even Scalia won't be able to shoe-horn that one into his "original intent" doctrine.

    Driving is a state granted and state regulated activity. Privilege is the...

    As someone who lived in Davis from 1980-2000 and Eugene from 2000-present, I've got to object to this. This so-called green loop was nothing more than a plan on paper that was basically a grad....

    Ah, but the devil is in the details. Since the grey bike route is "just" a bike route, the cops won't do any patrol work there. So, as you roll along Washington St, choose between the under water,...

    I guess it depends on things like what you consider long distance, how much you value reasonable rolling resistance, how flat-averse you are and what terrain you plan to ride on. Personally, I don't...

    It's not the lack of shoulder or the curves or even the fact that most of it is up-and-down. It's the fact that the motorists who travel on it are generally hateful of people on bikes. This is a...

    On nights with a high likelihood of drunk drivers being out in force, like X-mas eve, our local cops often arrange for a judge to be on call to issue search warrants in the event that a suspected...
