Urban Cycling / New Cyclist to DC
« on: August 10, 2008, 03:59:21 pm »
i pick up telegraph by hayfield high school and come down until i merge onto king's hwy then pick my way over to the mvt.

sometimes i just bike over to franconia metro and ride the bus to the pentagon from there. i may try getting off at king street - never thought of that before.

gallows is bad. i used to ride that way to catch the w/o and d into georgetown. very nasty inside the beltway.

mlt, where are you getting off that you are two blocks from the mvt? king street? chrystal city?

i live in kingstowne - my commute in is like mad max training; however, i go during the very early hours, clip in and out the garage about 530 before traffic gets ridiculous.

the problem with the mvt is that near the mt vernon terminus it gets really windy and you are better off on just the parkway.

the w o and d is excellent. when i lived in fairfax that is how i commuted to graduate school at georgetown.

Like new REI Novarra Express rain gear for sale. Only worn about six times. Very good condition.

It also has pit zips and zippered pockets, a double zipper on the front also has a velcro flap. Shock cord draw strings at waist level. Also the back of the jacket is cut a little longer so that rain doesn't get down the back of the pants.

Gear Talk / Novara Safari Front Rack? and Fenders?
« on: August 26, 2008, 09:22:27 am »
I could not resist picking up the safari at $660, even though as my wife points out i have one ass and six bikes.

What front rack works with the disc brake and what fenders are any other safari riders using?
