  1. I biked 75 miles yesterday, longest ride of the year, without feeling tired

    I haven't gone far on my bike this year so far. My average ride length was 10-15 miles and I only did a few. But yesterday I rode 75 miles without a hitch. Didn't get too tired or sore at the end. I...

    It really wasn't that bad napping on a park bench. First of all, I was far away from New York City, in a suburb. It was also daybreak, statistically the lowest crime rate of the day.

    Have you biked more miles than you drove?

    In the past 3 months, I have biked many more miles than I drove. I averaged over 100 miles a week on the bike and 30 miles driven per week. I last filled gas in June.

    I was responsible for a dog being hit by a car years ago. A dog unleashed in a yard chased after my bike. I sped up. A car going even faster came up behind me. The dog was in the middle of the road...

    It seemed like the cop that responded was on edge, since he approached pretty fast with lights flashing, and there were 2 cops in that car. By talking about going to the ATM, maybe the dispatcher...

    Looking back on this, it's pretty easy to understand the criminal's thought process. He's most likely a drug addict looking to get money to buy drugs, so he uses bolt cutters to steal a bike and then...

    I was walking around Philadelphia at 6 in the morning yesterday when someone approaches me on a bike and says "50 dollars". I ask what he wants, then he says "Bike, 50 dollars". It was a Trek...

    It's pointless to wait at a red light if there is no cross traffic. Because bikes can pull further forward towards the intersection and can see if there's cross traffic for a longer distance than car...

    It's best to lock it to a parking meter. The meters themselves are nearly impossible to remove.

    The tree will eventually grow wide enough that a u lock can't fit around it.

    Oh yes, I forgot to mention that I always pay attention if I'm turning right and a bike is in the shoulder. I'd wait a few seconds for them to pass so I don't right hook them. When parallel parking,...

    Has cycling changed your driving habits?

    I noticed that I tend to coast to a stop for a long distance if the light is red, rather than stay on the gas only to hit the brake 500 feet later, and no one else seems to do that. I sometimes stop...

    They should have bicycle hooks in each train car where you can hang your bike vertically. 5 bikes can fit in the space for 2 passengers. Most trains wouldn't be at 100% capacity so the loss of 2...

    I can trigger the gates to exit a parking lot by riding my bike over the loop. It always amazes pedestrians who see a bike triggering the gate to move up.
