    I didn't notice it either so I can't hold that against him. From the page he was looking at, there is no indication that it's the old study, and no link to the full study. It would be an easy...

    The only time it's happened to me, I stopped pedaling quickly - about a quarter turn or less - and coasted to a stop.

    For 20-30 I just add a windbreaker or cycling rain jacket to what I wear at 35. And a beanie or balaclava. Under 20, thicker gloves and heavier outer layer.

    OK. I was just pointing it out FYI since I thought you might be interested.



    I don't recall chastising anyone for their choices. I respect your choice to not ride in traffic, since everyone's...

    I take your point, and I did consider that evening that the sign is designed to send it back as much as possible (I tend to over-think things alone at night on the bike). But it also occurred to me...

    But the light reflected by the road sign, in the fog, traveled twice the distance to blind me as it would from my headlight to someone near the sign. If it blinded me from that distance, then...

    A mag-light, mounted right on top in the center furrow has a big problem with back-scatter even though it's dim compared to the LED headlights. I'm looking through the beam and can't see beyond, and...

    I don't think that Skye misrepresented it all that much, at least not from a reading of just the abstract.

    Be that as it may, there are a couple of other bits that I see as useful. In these...

    Plausible, but to me it doesn't add up. 35 years, plus however old someone would be to buy their own shorts, say 18 or 20, that would be 55 years old. Lots of people 55 or older use the internet,...

    I don't see how formation of social identification is possible through such a limited bandwidth medium. Something of that nature does happen with internet forums, but I suspect that there's a lot of...

    The helmet light is fine in a fog, as long as there's some separation over the line of sight. I'm forward leaning so the light is mounted well back on the helmet and angled up relative to my eyes....

    Wow - it's unexpected but judging from this informal unscientific survey there is a cluster of oldest shorts about 34-35 years old, which seems to be the limit on them.

    I blinded myself the other night, which kind of helped frame the whole problem for me. It was on the Greenway trail, in some heavy mist/fog and some rain, late and cold enough that there was...

    I'd be staying home, anywhere in the Northeast. Too unpredictable, too much storm.

    Two possibilities: freewheeling with his hands loosely on the hoods implies downhill, possibly a false flat. And the sudden release of a deceleration can feel like a surge.
