    Congratulations. And I second the 'extra points' for being a good grandson.

    I'd go car free at the drop of a hat. But I have a wife and kids who just aren't so much in love with biking.

    So I'm...

    75 MPH? What? Do you have winter hurricanes or something?

    I'm pretty well known for tackling tough weather. But I wouldn't-a gone out in that. Not on a bike.

    You've got guts.

    Still, I...

    It's probably just. I'd be inclined to want a lengthier sentence. But the man apparently admitted to the police on-scene just what he'd done. He plead (pleaded?) "Guilty" at trial.

    If he tried to...

    I like the classic Schwinn. I also like winter riding.

    But I'm not sure I'd choose that bike.

    Still, good on ya for not letting winter put a stop to you.

    I think that anyone who claims that studs are not a good idea is simply wrong. Or being too picky. Maybe they're not strictly necessary. But they...

    One of the things that bothers me the most when following the story of a motorist who kills a bicyclist or ped (plus even run-of-the-mill murders) is the fact that we hear the perp's version of...

    Why don't you go to Amazon and look up Frogg Toggs rain pants?

    They're quite inexpensive. They're also very, very light. They'll pack up into a small package. Though you'll no doubt want to dry...

    It is a nice story. And I can identify. My own story has some similarities.

    As a boy I had bicycles and I rode them. But I wouldn't say that I was a serious bicyclist. I did it without giving it a...

    I'm treated reasonably well. But it's more 'benign neglect' than approval. If anyone is wondering if more of us should be bicycle commuting, then they're not making it obvious to me. And no one...

    Yes, it's a powerful image. It also makes me sad.

    We're, figuratively, nearly choking on cars in this nation. And most of the people around us seem to be nearly unaware that anything is wrong. And...

    Street sweepers for bike lanes???!!!!

    Why, China's beginning to sound like a pretty nice place.

    Part of my commute involves a paved break-down lane that's as good as a bike lane to me. They...

    I've heard the theory that we're named "Freds" after that fellow who rode around the world. But I don't quite believe that that's really where it came from. (Maybe...I'll admit....but I have doubts)...

    One thing I'll inject: some of us have more flats than others. I can't explain why that might be. Though 'riding style' must surely play a part.

    If you're a 'frequent flat' type, then you've no...

    I don't think I can add to the list. I've seen plenty of entries that, I agree, are hazardous.

    I'll reiterate though, for those who aren't familiar with winter riding and are considering it, the...

    At least not if you're trying to get to sleep and trying to avoid nightmares.

    I'm no authority and I've never tried heated insoles or socks. So you gotta take this with a grain of salt.
