    There are almost too many great climbs in MA and NH to list here. But certainly the loop around the Kancamangus Highway gives you some great climbs and vistas. In Massachusetts Mt. Greylock gives you...

    Just realized today that I have managed to get through what's turning into Boston's snowiest coldest winter ever and never had to take the bus. Mostly because the city was shut down when the storms...

    So, the other day I've got a minute to kill and I try to upload a picture of my bike parked in Boston and a little post about my studs handling the ice and a snarky comment about parking. It never...

    Plodding along in the Boston tundra. My usual route on the bike path is under somewhere between 6-8' of snow and ice so I'm doing my streets route, which is lined by 12' piles of snow at some...

    Still doing my daily commute from Newton into downtown Boston. No more bike path, too bad because I could avoid cars entirely if the path were plowed consistently. Instead it's a streets route as I...

    Just checking in with the Boston crowd. I'm still managing to get around by bike these days but its a challenge.

    The grid lock downtown makes it really tough.

    People who don't wipe off their...

    I would like to re-emphasize the seemingly innocuous "puddle". be it winter or midsummer puddles can conceal a myriad of dangers.

    This past summer I had a rather serious crash at walking speed-...

    ** quote pulled from another thread..

    Many times in these threads there is a great deal of advocacy for "cyclist education". Rather than simply dismissing these individuals as self destructive...

    I guess you've kind of answered what I just asked in the other thread I created to address this issue, which, for me, is a separate issue than the "come from behind issue" of the OP. If you don't...

    While I understand the desire to expand the definition to include some of the devices you mention, especially with regards making our streets and cities more people friendly and less auto centric, I...

    Looks like ILTB beat me to it but I will add a voice to the chorus. Yes, you are right I do have issues. I have issues with those who claim the moniker (self identify) as "cyclists" and presume to...
  15. Define: "BICYCLIST" or let's at least get clear on the concept!

    BICYCLIST: ??

    For me it's simple: A "bicyclist" is a person riding a bicycle.

    When I advocate for cycling I advocate for "people who ride bicycles" NOT for any exclusive subset, who may deem...

    Wow. In my previous post I reference an old elitism I found intolerable in the old League of American WheelMEN.

    I guess it still exists when it comes to advocacy today. I prefer advocacy that...

    The quote below comes from the link in my original post. In a "rural" setting almost 4 times as many accidents occur at non-intersections but that only makes sense doesn't it?- I mean, fewer...

    I'm sorry but I have to take issue with this constant drumbeat of "maKing riding on the street seem more dangerous than it is."

    They are simply taking the means by which most cyclist/auto...

    Your 3.8% figure is based on some pretty interesting statistical manipulations that significantly reduce the "odds" of a rear end collision. The overall figures include categories like the "weird",...

    Ah, I see. So only those of us actually concerned about getting killed on our bikes should worry about a rear end collision. That's cool. :rolleyes:
  21. Well, so much for that "irrational fear cyclists have of come from behind collisions"

    Well, good luck with that!

    Genec rides in the San Diego area, where I am currently riding and I'll let him respond because he has more experience in this area. but actually it's surprising to me...

    I don't understand why you say you "could not disagree more" and then go on to say "cycling...should be much safer" and add the caveat of other nations with more strict lability and...

    I won't belabor my point any more than this but look at your post. Who are you quoting? The Phantom Copenhaginista? All I ask is if you "reply with quote" respond to what I wrote and if you add a...

    Actually, you did quote me. When you hit "reply with quote" what I have written appears as a "quote" in your post. I have no problem with that. My issue is that you then, in your response, put...
