As a solo tourer or commuter, I don't feel at all guilty if I hold up a few cars on narrow roads, as I don't have a choice but to be on those roads. Especially since I'm using the roads for their...

As much as the bright lights were a problem for me on the busy Burke Gilman Trail, it's a trifle compared to when motorists have keep high beams on because I'm not a car, while they approach from the...

I thwarted another coal roller last summer on my first day of a bike tour, just before my first big break. As always, I have three metal water bottles. And as always, I controlled the lane when...

I'm much the same way. I'm extremely weary of waiting like a car to turn left. It's such a vulnerable spot to be. I've seen a few cars get rear-ended while they wait, which tend to be minor fender...

Just like all other cash fines, it's fundamentally unfair. While $600 might be quite a deterrent and/or penalty for most, for many it wouldn't have any effect. It doesn't seem right how one person...

Absolutely perfect riding. Nothing wrong even in the slightest. The lane isn't wide enough to share, so what difference does it make?. What, exactly is the problem? I do not see one.

Did you even read any of the articles? It doesn't seem like you did. We should feel bad because as of just a couple of years ago, a delivery person could deliver on a free or extremely cheap bike....

Let me ask to this: how would you feel if you were one on the fastest cyclists on the city and your delivery turf was a fifteen block radius. All of a sudden, unless you have an e-bike that costs two...

I feel bad for the "real" delivery cyclists, the ones who delivered because they just wanted to be on their bikes. Now they are forced to be on e-bikes. Before, if you were a fast cyclist, you could...

It makes things so much more difficult to assert our legal rights when even fellow cyclists are against us. Especially when they don't understand the fundamentals of lane control. A cursory search...

You didn't refute a single point. First, when there's no shoulder, it negates the FARP. Go ahead and look at any state's MVC. Every one I'm aware of carves out a list of exemptions, one of which is...

I carry three metal water bottles. If someone tries to intimidate me, I pull it out, hold it to the side and let them take a hard look at it. Still trouble? I'll hold it in a ready-to-throw position....

If it were me, I'd survey the best rail trails in America, including some that will be a part of the GART. Rail trails rarely go beyond a 2% grade, so almost any bike will work, in theory.

I have a few examples from personal experience. It was snowing hard as I rode home. I was on a road with two lanes in each direction, traffic was light to moderate. To pass me would have been easy....

Good article. They're right about geography being a major factor for if a bike share will be successful in a particular city. When I lived in Seattle, it completely flopped. Too hilly for those...

Actually, no. I couldn't care less about what the law says. I care only not hitting pedestrians, my personal safety, and not usurping someone's ROW. That's it. I'd argue that cyclists have a moral...

If I'm within twenty yards of an empty intersection, there's no way I'm stopping, even if someone else technically beats me there because of the benefit of a motor. If someone's already there, I'll...

I regret not doing my upper body. My thought was that all of those muscles degraded at the same rate, so at least I wouldn't suffer imbalances. My thought being that if I increased the mobility of my...

I still can't figure out the wind, about if it hurts more than it helps. To me, it seems like headwinds slow me down and cause much more anguish than whatever I gain from tailwinds, both with...

This is a good point. Being efficient off the bike makes a real difference. In the mornings, I can really pay off because of traffic and wind, which are both lighter the earlier you get. If you...
