I recently put together a video about unsafe crossings on the Charles River Path in Boston. If you ride on it, you know these intersections.
Has anyone taken delivery on one of these yet? If so.. can you report on it?
It's not the bike. My first performance high racer was a Saber. It was a fast bike. Easily + 3 mph averages over my road bike once I got fit to ride it.
I'm 6'4", 180 lbs. 700C Corsa is a great fit and a fast bike with great handling and a solid road feel.
From the ride orgnizers:
"Correct, baa.org wants all cyclist to depart from Hopkington/Ashland line by 715am. We just learned about it this week. We will work with their request, our start remains...
News from MassBike is that Marathon start line area will be cleared out at 7:15 instead of the customary 8:15. Not sure how reliable this info is. Road closure schedule seems to be the same as last...
Careful what you wish for!
I am using my cargo bike this weekend to deliver donations to the Occupy Boston protest in the the financial district. If you have a cargo bike and the time and energy to do it, contact people where...

'bents are fantastic if you have a bad back. They're fantastic even if you have a good back.
Sounds great. Is there a podcast version available?
Me too. South Street, Needham has that rumbly chip seal on the last bit - not so glassy a road no more. It also seems to be a car/bike battle ground. Usually going out via Central these days. But...
I thought this wasn't supposed to happen until tomorrow... May 21....
I ride on MUPs a lot. I find it much safer to pass where there's space, without a verbal or bell warning. My experience has been that most of the time, "on your left" or my ringing bell cause...
Just got back from doing this solo on the 'bent. Thanks y'all for posting about this ride! The trip out was...meh..... a bit of climbing and head wind. But the ride BACK! SO much fun. If you time it...
From the timing of this, I would think that the ride out to Hopkington is not closed to traffic quite yet, but then the ride back probably is. Does that sound right?

Finally got my long-tail up and running and used it on a job today:
Put this together today. Can't wait to load it up:
After the laughter subsided, did they allow you to take the Swift on the train? Or was the laughter the kind that just says no?
Admission: I don't ride the trike in wet stuff, or snow ... suited as it is to those conditions. Ergo - sans-fenders. But it's a fantastic cold weather rig... although maybe a degree or two colder...
Handy plow attachment. Removed before photo was taken.
Winter gear. That funny triangle thing? That's my nose....
