  1. What cycling gear have you stopped using and why?

    I used to always wear cycling gloves, but a couple of years ago I decided it was just too much trouble especially if my bike trips had a couple of stops.

    Likewise I used to wear a cycling cap...

    I suspect this is a brilliant plan! If you can prove the service is working amazingly well for a small segment, you can make that service a "gotta-have" for other neigborhoods. Especially if there...

    It is starting to make a difference here too. When I first moved here, the word on the street was that Des Moines was dull and Iowa was bleeding talent. Nowadays, thanks to a forward-looking city...

    Well, if a cell phone is a gadget, I'm a gadget person. There are so many things I use the phone to do... almost nothing bike related... but. I started playing violin recently. I have an app that...

    I would expect to open that box and have a lawyer's head pop out.

    Cutting poor service isn't really that difficult to do. The bus company can even revert to some form of "on call" business... but often there isn't much demand.

    I'm really confused about...

    I saw this article a while back and it seemed like the "no dime spent" trick was that the routing had changed. Basically, you drop service where no one would ride a bus and increase service where you...

    My only gadget are dynamo hub lights. There's nothing like leaving home in the morning knowing that you can ride home whenever you feel like it without having the remember those damned lights.

    Yeah, our city started regular trail clearing a few years ago and it's remarkable how many riders you'll see in the winter. Not necessarily all winter, but on many good days, there are lots on the...

    There are a couple of things that seem to favor Montreal. As mentioned the wider streets seem to help. But... my understanding is that Quebec has a stronger infrastructure than English Canada. Bike...

    Aaron, sorry to hear about all this. Sometimes it's hard to keep a good attitude. It seems like everything is falling apart (don't ask how I know all this :))

    But somewhere in there hopefully you...

    Yeah, if I need to travel, there are lots of rental cars available here at rates that are pretty low. So if I was traveling to, say, a smaller urban center... I'd rent a car. Bigger centers (like say...

    Where I work you can pick up bus passes for $15. I use these a lot in the winter especially if we get a lot of snow. It's a great perk for me, but my employer has more room to grow without needing to...

    +1 A great event. I managed to complete the 50km route on my Panasonic tourer... apparently the only dynohub in the pack. Those hills are certainly steep. Thanks Robbie, family and friends.

    If you work in the "e" business as I do, I can tell you there is nothing better than getting completely away from it all.

    Nowadays they are just distracted by their phones. But yes... mostly things are better. I think most would agree.

    That puts some nice even digits around the climbing. Next time we do this route, remind me I can always shift off the big ring :)

    Minneapolis shares a few features of Canadian cities. Those extra parking spots have all the usual issues -- need to be resurfaced, eat up a lot of real estate, look unsitely -- but in northern...

    bikemig, the ride we do to Maffit Lake has 1,100 feet of climbing. Today's ride seems much more. You could always extrapolate from the degrees of aching in your quadraceps tonight. Nice photos. Is...

    I thought the guy reading the newspaper was a little suspicious. No one reads a paper on my route. It's strictly cell phone or a book.
