    I have found a bell to be much more effective than shouting at pedestrians when riding on MUPs, but sometimes I have to do both. The main problem is joggers wearing earbuds and listening to music,...

    Flipping the bird did not cause the incident. The pickup truck driver caused the incident by (1) deliberately passing the cyclist too close and honking, (2) pulling over to confront the cyclist, and...

    I think the OP handled the situation great, both during and after the incident. The only mistake he was made was flipping a bird, which is something I and most other cyclists can sympathize with. I...

    My commuting pace depends on a number of factors -- the weather (primarily wind), how tired my legs are, and my weekend riding plans. Most days, I commute at what I would call "tempo" pace -- that...

    This has been my most challenging summer (and year) for bike commuting yet, mainly due to the weather. Like most Eastern states, NC had a colder and snowier winter than usual. Summer has also been...

    Finally a somewhat decent day for bike commuting, with "only" a 30-percent chance of afternoon storms. Very humid and warm, but it felt good to be riding. My commute started out great with all green...

    I've been using an on-line site, My Cycling Log, to record all of my cycling mileage, bike maintenance, etc. for years. The site has had occasional short-term outages, but appears to have gone kaput...

    Are the bikes set up the same? You can't really compare the fit unless the saddles are set up the same in relation to the crank -- that is, the saddles on both bikes should be the same distance...

    Gorgeous weather this morning, with coolest morning temps in months (upper 50s). I was running late so I kicked up the pace and got just as sweaty as if the temperature was in the 70s. Felt good to...
