    Without my iPhone, my Garmin won't instantly upload my rides to my account when my commute is over. I would have to wait until I'm on wifi. Unthinkable!

    The Capital Crescent Trail is taken over by peds and slow riders on any nice weekend. Workdays is not an issue. I don't have any video myself, but you get the idea.

    Black is good if you want to blend in with the crowd. Maybe it is less attractive to thieves, although it hides dirt better, which could make it more attractive.

    I ride along a river for my entire commute and it's pretty darn flat. Helps that there is a canal for part of the way. Here are the stats from my Garmin from this morning:

    I prefer higher volume and lower pressure, with fenders. The GAP is is great shape, but you will definitely benefit from more comfort if you are putting in long days on the C&O. Traction is not an...

    No easy answer. If the ground is saturated from previous rainfall, and then it rains again, I can take a couple days to dry out. If it hasn't rained in some time, it can be fine the next day. I...

    Last summer I rode from Cumberland to Connellsville on Day 1 and back on Day 2. Aside from my legs being a bit more tired, the gradual uphill climb on Day 2 was more draining because it never lets...

    I'll be up there the week of June 15. PM me if you are around. I will be riding from Woods Hole across the Bourne Bridge to Myles Standish, so would be interested in your route.

    A faster bike won't necessarily make your commute more enjoyable, and could actually make things worse. If you are passed on a slow bike, at least you have an excuse. If you are passed on a fast...

    I might yell something or shake my head, but never a physical confrontation. No telling where that will lead.

    Move 10 miles away from your work or get another job that is farther away. That way you'll have a longer commute.

    That's not a blowout, that's rim failure. Hard to tell from the photo, but the rim looks pretty old. Check the other wheel carefully. Time for new wheels, which can be a good thing.

    I remember someone saying they left their car at Great Falls park. I think you pay the annual fee, which isn't that much, and let them know how long you'll be gone. Could be an urban myth, but...
