    I was once riding behind someone on the GG Bridge ringing their bell loudly every 3 seconds...It worked, but it was way over the top. I was riding behind him, so I got the benefit of it without...

    I occasionally do one-legged drills on a stationary bike at the gym and they are really, really tough. I doubt I could bike with one leg more than five minutes or so and I'd have to be in an easy...

    Interesting story. Awhile back, when I was having a bout of back problems, I was prescribed Tramadol (for a few weeks, before I wound up getting an epidural injection, which helped). I was talking...

    I should clarify what I mean by "assertive about their rights." I do not mean engaging in bad behavior toward pedestrians. I mean that cyclists should assert their political rights, at city council...

    Only hit by a car once and it was over 15 years ago. I was stopped at a red light and started up after it turned green. Right then, some cops came up from behind and turned on their sirens right as...

    In California, I believe it is illegal for pedestrians to be in the bike lane on the road, unless, they are on a road that does not have sidewalks. I looked this up awhile back because I was so...

    As people get older, they develop more health problems. Some are related to too much exercise, some related to not enough exercise, some due to diet or injury... For cyclists, I think you have to...

    I wear lycra, ride my road bike and generally look like a roadie, except I have a backpack on. It is a Camelbak, so they might think I am just out for a long ride and need lots of water. But, I...

    I really like the Exposure Diablo light. I did a lot of research on lights last year because I wanted something that would help me feel more confident riding at night in the winter. I found...

    Maybe I should say it is not very safe for me to do intervals on the road. I tend to push myself to the max when doing intervals, then recover, then push hard again, etc. When I'm pushing hard, I'm...

    The more time you spend on your bike, the more I think it pays to get a good fitting at your local bike shop. It really helps to have someone take measurements while you ride a trainer. I think this...

    My bike is mostly made up of carbon fiber and aluminum - never head anything rust, despite having to leave it outside daily for over a year (while at work). Before this bike, the commuter was...

    The first :10-:15 minutes in the morning= warm up on a MUP. After that, I think I am around 12-18 mph, though that is an estimate since I don't use a cycle computer or Strava. I am ten minutes...

    I usually have some coffee in the morning before I ride to work, with almond milk and stevia. I have a regular coffee-maker, no special devices for coffee... I spend too much $ on bike stuff & have...

    I ride a carbon fiber road bike to work and have to lock it outside. Granted, it is in a safer area than a college campus... I use a U-lock on the frame and a longer cable through the wheels. I...

    I really like the idea of doing a better chain lube once a week, maybe on the weekend, and making sure I get each link - that will help.

    I like riding my carbon road bike to work for a number of...

    Thanks for the good ideas! One of my lights charges by USB and takes 5-6 hours (niterider), so sometimes I go to bed before it is fully charged. I could charge at work, but I am usually very busy...

    Overall, I tend to be pretty cautious and I think this bothers some people. If I need to go on a sidewalk to get to a bridge/tunnel/MUP path, I walk my bike.
