    700 lumen helmet-mounted headlight gets their attention every time, plus the same on the bars. It's powerful enough to stop any car. Add to that, reflective sidewall strips and two taillights...

    I use a trunk bag packed tight so nothing shifts around. Don't notice a huge difference in handling with or without it. Backpacks are like wearing a straight jacket (or at least how I imagine it...

    Looks like your little bike guy ran over a squirrel and crashed.

    On my way home this evening at 20 mph, I saw plenty of wildlife. A few deer and many frogs. I think a couple frogs didn't make it...

    What am I missing at 20 mph that I would otherwise see at 10 mph?

    You are aware that "peddling" means selling. Perhaps you meant to say "pedaling?"

    Works out to 7 hours riding time per day for me. Adding in breaks, meals and a bit of sightseeing, it's a full day. Fine as long as the legs hold out and it's not too hot. I don't like sitting...

    I think a nice three-day trip would be to take the train from DC to Connellsville, stay overnight and ride back to DC. That is, if you can ride 90 mile days. ...

    Everything you say points to a health issue, not a bike commuting issue. Get it checked out by a medical doctor. Maybe it's just diet, but as others have said, it could be a sign of something more...

    Just got word the RORO service on the Capitol Limited will start on September 14. Let's hope it happens. Here's to everyone who worked on this.

    My main incentive to ride each day is Google Maps. Miles of red roads between me and work. It's usually the first thing I check in the morning. Weather is not much of a factor, with heavy rain and...

    Riding, it doesn't make much difference, as the towpath is 99% flat. It's nice having the occasional downhill at locks going from Cumberland to DC, but not enough to outweigh other factors. Wind...

    Thanks for the tip. I just sent a PM to the guy on the PGH forum to see if I can become a test rider. Hats off to the folks who have kept after Amtrak for years to make this happen.

    If and when this actually happens, I can ride from work to Union Station on Friday, take the train to Cumberland, and still have a couple hours of light in the summer to ride to a campsite. That...

    A half inch spacer between the fender stay and fork on the caliper side moves the stay outboard enough to clear without any contact. Slight bending of the stays compensates for the wider position.

    The tire clearance with 700x40 and fenders is decent. If you were running through lots of mud, you would possibly want more clearance. The fenders are PB Cascadias, with Schwalbe Marathon Supremes...

    The reporter said the call came in at 6:15 am, so the sun wasn't quite up yet. The guy was almost home from a morning ride, not commuting to work. Sad story.

    Best guess is at the two-lane portion, and the driver came around the car in front of him, failing to see the bike ahead on the right. Not saying it applies in this case, but there are lots of...
