    It's funny to see how many people at work looking at me amazed with "you rode in today?!?"

    There were thunderstorms last night, the ground was a bit wet in places, but the temps were cooler and...

    I'm going to advocate something different, and it's not for everyone, but if there's a store near you that you can try a couple out, don't overlook recumbents, especially for commuting. For me, the...

    Sorry to hear about your accident, that sucks. A friend of a friend was killed a few years ago in similar type of accident (large truck > low, convertible) that all but decapitated the driver. :(

    For me, it's not about evidence, because as you noted, that's pretty hit or miss. What I think having a visible camera does is make those people who have a bit of a conscience that might actually...

    Good observations. We clearly have auto sickness in the US. :( I might have to move back to Germany (I would in a heartbeat if the job opportunity was there).

    It's been consistently above 100F here the last 3 weeks.

    I have a basic cycling computer on the bike for instantaneous speed. It has other functions, but that's pretty much all I use it for.

    For logging routes and keep better track of things, I use...

    It seems to me that if a city/county is going to go through that trouble, it would be more effective to put up signs about how to share the MUP. Some kind of diagram showing peds to stay right, bikes...

    The parallel with drinking and driving is disturbing, when it comes to personal responsibility and the level of impairment.

    As of today, I've already exceeded my total miles ridden last year. Almost all of my miles are commuting miles (716 as of this morning's ride).

    Hope to still break 2k this year.

    A better article.. Someone post this to the WaPo one. :) The title alone should get the point across.

    You haven't been riding very long? The weight of the bike has less to do with how much it gets blown around than does the profile and cross section. Also, once you learn a bit about strategic...
