    I've kept up with my riding at least, if not my posting.

    In April, I first tagged along down to central Illinois to ride the 300K with St Louis Randonneuring. The terrain there is flatter and...

    This last weekend the weather was beautiful (at least compared to what it had been) and I got in not one, but two rides for March. Actually, I coordinated with a randonneur friend in Madison. He...

    Sometimes things that I've ordered can take a while, but it is an entirely volunteer run organization...

    I certainly like the idea of connecting point-to-point permanents to create a network, even if not across the entire country.

    In fact, I recall not to long ago on the perm owner's mailing list a...

    Got my ride for February in on Sunday with a 210K.

    I'm really noticing how my relative inactivity during the winter affects performance. In fact, that seems to be a bigger issue than just...

    Wow, Joe. That screw in the tire looks grisly. Glad there wasn't severe rim damage and that you could finish the ride. Love seeing the Japan pictures, too. Makes me wish I'd have picked up...

    Sticky: January's 200K

    I got mine in on January 1st with my 200K permanent. Average temperature was about 15 degrees F, which seems like a heat wave compared to the -9 "feels like -27" right now. Glad I was proactive.

    I ride a Bern Macon EPS with the winter knit liner designed for it and a thin fleece cap underneath. I'll supplement with a balaclava, goggles, and/or face mask if needed. It has kept me more than...

    Like many that have already posted, most of my day to day destinations/basic needs are within 5 miles, but I have no problem going much further if I happen to have a reason to reach a destination...

    I very much agree with you on this point. I wish more governments did as well.

    I agree that signals need to work for all road users, not just automobiles. One of my pet peeves is traffic signals that don't cycle unless a motor vehicle triggers the sensor.

    I mostly agree, but also think a move to a more "complete streets" ideology is important. Using available right of ways, this often means taking space dedicated to on-street parking and reallocating...

    This isn't entirely accurate, though 6v 3w has been the standard for a long time. Though most dynamos are designed to output 6v 3w, wheel size is a factor. With Schmidt, for instance the Son 28 is...
