    I am not proud of choosing to be car-free, but I am often filled with gratitude that I made that choice. Every time I ride in someone's car and we enter a parking lot crowded with people trying to...

    Maybe you could try a rain cape. I have no experience with this particular one, I just found it with a web search, but it's a good example. There are other brands available.

    I suggest this as...

    Motorcyclists often wear earplugs, the kind that are sold for a couple of dollars in any drugstore, while riding. Even inside a full-face helmet, wind noise can be deafening on a motorcycle. The...

    I would not reply to the e-mail or call the number listed in it. It could be a fake, even though on the surface it doesn't appear to be one. Since the police department has a contact page, I'd use...

    It's not just one city, I discovered. There's a link on the site that takes you to similar programs in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and a few other California cities.

    Since this thread is about carfree vacations, that would be irrelevant. But I'm sure you could look it up if you wanted to know.

    This is interesting. I was looking up some information about Amtrak and saw this link on their site. It seems at least one city is now promoting car-free travel.

    Actually, there is a best helmet...it's the one that fits your head best. Helmets are generally made to fit specific head shapes, and you have to find out which ones fit yours by trying them on. Even...

    squitrdad, I'm curious to see what facilities you finally end up with. Please let us know what the final result is!

    You could just punch a hole in the flyer and use a small rubberband to secure it on the end of a handlebar. No risk of damaging anything that way. That said, if I found a flyer on my bike it would...

    You might look at the bike parking at Palo Alto Caltrain Station (Bikestation Palo Alto - Bikestation | bikestation.com). I personally haven't used it but it seems to be a pretty well-furnished...

    I'm dubious about that claim that they will have to learn to drive sooner or later. I have known many adults who never had a driver's license, even though they could have. All of them got along just...

    I also have no idea why that thread was closed; I saw nothing out of line in it, and whatever disagreement it contained was mild compared to what I see in other subforums which don't get "moderated"...

    I believe that is as it should be. LCF exists because we needed a place to talk about these social, environmental, and cultural issues that are indirectly related to bikes. If that were not the case,...

    I'm accustomed to forums where you are not allowed to bump old threads; in one forum, even a thread that's just a month old is off-limits for new posts. The topic there is one where information is...

    I'd like to see more threads about urban/suburban planning that incorporates and encourages human-powered transportation.

    And I like discussions about the less tangible benefits of riding bikes...

    After not having driven for nearly 6 years, I had to drive 3 times last month (rented cars, I haven't owned one in many years). I discovered that I really hate it now! I would much rather use my bike...

    Oh, I understood what you meant. I was just pointing out that it's still extended enough to create a forward-leaning riding posture with the S bar.

    I don't think a 5'2" rider would need to bring the seatpost down unless they had a short inseam for their height. The Brompton I rode had the saddle roughly level with the bars and it fit me well...

    I'm also 5'2" and I have ridden a Brompton which had the S bar. It fit me and my riding style very well. But I'd say you need to also consider your personal preference in riding position. I like to...

    Dedicated bike lanes alone are not enough; they need to be well-designed ones. Where I live we have a lot of dedicated lanes, but many are narrow enough that they actually result in more close passes...

    I don't ride while intoxicated, but I'm not really a valid sample because I don't get intoxicated. My father was a severe alcoholic, and what I witnessed growing up caused me to decide I'd never...

    You're never going to change people's behavior by complaining about it, as I'm sure you already know. People who ride on the sidewalk even in the presence of an on-street bike lane are probably doing...

    It's pretty rare for the rider to not separate from the motorcycle in a spill unless it's at very low speed. I don't think I've ever heard of anyone sliding with the motorcycle still between their...
