General Discussion / March on the East Cost
« on: January 22, 2008, 09:29:40 am »
I agree with you there... In march, you will most likely encounter a day or two that may be a bit chilly.. It's hard to beat week long heatwaves in the great plains though.. :-)

We've had some serious snow mid-march here in northeast, like NJ, Upstate NY, New England. I'm sure it can easily get cold in the appalachians too...  I'd be prepared for the cold, but not sure if there is anything you can prepare for the snow, other than having 'snowdays' incorporated into your schedule...


General Discussion / ACA stickers -inside..
« on: January 15, 2008, 12:25:58 pm »
Does ACA produce stickers for cars that are inside? I have one on my car that always winds up getting peeled due to the snow and ice and scraping... Would be nice if they had a sticker made for the inside of the car. Does this exist? This is the "ride to live, live to ride" one that I had on my subaru...

Same to you and all you cyclists out there... :-)


General Discussion / SFO to BHB?
« on: December 03, 2007, 09:38:31 am »
You might want to talk to sailariel, a user here since he is from belfast, ME, which is about an hour's drive south of Bar Harbor along the coast.  He should know a bunch of info on logistics and perhaps the Bangor airport.

Living on the east coast here, my joke is that a cheap way of flying to bangor is to get onto an international flight flight and then declare a hijack. All the international flights coming to America that get into trouble go to Bangor, ME... :)


General Discussion / Attacks on the Katy Trail
« on: November 28, 2007, 02:53:15 pm »
using google I found this:

and also some old articles from an attack in May.

There is nothing special about MUPs that prevents ordinary crime, in fact, maybe because of the linearness (is that a word) of most rail trails, and MUPs, and the fact that most of them cross roads and stuff and/or follow old rail grades which typically dont cut through rich areas, one always needs to be aware just like in any other park.  


General Discussion / biking yosemite and sequio nat. parks
« on: November 20, 2007, 09:29:26 am »
I don't know about all the national parks but I know Acadia NP in Maine has 2 campsites that are not reservable which I think is great, not everybody has the freedom or flexibility to reserve campsites a year in advance or more so I would hope that the NPS sets aside a few sites or a campground for first come first servers, or perhaps utilize say overflow camping sites to allow folks such as thruhikers, bike tourers and the like a place to stay and share the NP system.


General Discussion / Xtracycle

Also, check out the Commuting forum on the following internet forum, a lot of folks over there seem to have XP in the Xtracycle:


General Discussion / Is there a good all-in-one clothes/body wash?
« on: November 04, 2007, 09:04:42 am »
driftlessregion: OK, you're braver than I!  But I'll keep that in mind for the future.

Gregg: I agree with you, it is pretty strong in it's natural form but I always make sure to dilute it pretty well. I think even the instructions (that get lost in all the flotsam) say to dilute it.  I believe the soap will really dry out your skin if not diluted...

I typically use Peppermint but I will try others, even Almond!

I use this as a soap, shampoo, wash my clothes, etc.. I do carry toothpaste though..

I agree with WesternFlyer, I take the Dr. Bronners everywhere, camping, biking, etc.  It's pretty useful and pretty strong, don't forget to dilute a bit.  

And in addition to cleasiness, when it's raining outside and you're stuck in your tent, you can sit there and read all the little fine print that's on the label. In fact, apparently, they couldn't fit everything on the label and resorted to selling the container with a small book on a lanyard with it!


General Discussion / dan fennessey
« on: September 25, 2007, 03:39:38 pm »
Hi, I didn't find an actual contact in the court case papers I saw (unless you want to go try and contact the NYC courthouse which might work though I'm not sure if the NYC courts are allowed to give out contact information to the general public)... I got the email address from someplace completely unrelated to the Critical Mass court date and from a flyfishing website:

However, the Adirdondacks are well within a weekend trip to those in NYC so it is feesible that if your Dan is also a fisherman, it could be the same...

I checked as an ISP and it's correct. (I was thinking perhaps it was a typo and perhaps it's and not but alas, is a valid ISP (

I could not find any other option to find a contact for Dan Fennessey other than the court docket...

More google sleuthing.... I found this:

Went to Bard College... works at Insite East which is in Brooklyn, NYC:

So, 2 + 2 makes it very feasible that we're talking the same Dan Fennessey who lives in Brooklyn...   If I was you, I would try to contact him through Marcus Attorneys or if you feel like registering with zoominfo, might be free and might allow you to contact him...

It might be the Dan you are looking for as I found the info from a flyfishing guestbook on Caruga Lake which is in the southern Adirondacks, which isn't too far from NYC.  If Dan is a flyfisherman, as well as a bike tourer and Critical Mass fan, it would further corroborate the contact you are looking for...

Any other information?

Where is Dan Fennessey from?

I've googled his name, a court case with regards to "Critical Mass" ride in NYC to the Police Dept comes up:

Is Dan from Brooklyn, NYC, NY, USA?

General Discussion / Stem length's effect on handling
« on: September 13, 2007, 04:21:48 pm »
In my experience when I replaced my stem with a shorter one is the steering is a little more quirkier, a faster turning radius but I'm quite used to it by now and don't think it's any worse than before steering wise.  If you use your stem to hold a cue sheet, then you'll have less support, or if your GPS is mounted there, etc. etc.
