    I've been using it for a couple of years, but probably can't be considered "casual" since I do join their challenges.

    I'm a daily four-season commuter. My most direct route is just under ten miles, but I would say that 90% of the time I am adding milage to get a 25 to 30 mile round trip commute. Most of my...

    My first question is what do you consider a "fair" distance and in what type of weather? Most days I commute about 12 miles one way. I almost never need to hydrate in the morning and can get by...

    Actually, I don't believe the governor has yet signed the bill and it certainly isn't in effect yet, so it's not quite the law. As far as being cycle-friendly, the Virginia legislature is not. They...

    VA just amended the distance to three feet in the most recent legislative session. I do not believe the governor has signed it yet and I don't think it would go into effect until this summer.
