"I ride significantly more. I'll do a morning ride from 5:30am until 7am usually 15-20 miles and, weather permitting, some is along the LFT, with a pit stop for a dip in the lake. Then, I typically do a 7:30 to 9:30pm ride. "

"I lost my bike commute too.  I ride less, but walk and RUN more.  I used to go running only once a week on weekend.  Now I run 2-4 times a week. I still ride pretty much, but as time goes on, the differential increases."

Are You Riding More or Less During Covid?

Just wanting to know how much everyone has been riding. I ride less, walk more just because it's easier and I'm always home with my dog. I used to bike commute every day and I really miss it. I am genuinely worried about spread on public transportation so I am going to wait and see how the trains do with more people. Are you riding more or less? Are you wearing a mask always/when people come close/never? No judgement here, just wanting to know how everyone is working through riding during a…See More

Biking Green: An Interview with Maria Boustead of Po Campo

Recently, after moving to D.C., I decided to "go green" as much as possible. So I stopped taking Lyft rides, replacing them with an around-town Linus and I replaced my bus trips with a Brompton for my daily commute. I realized with the recent awareness of straw usage and one-use plastic containers, I still have a…
