The matter of the location of front/rear brake levers is one of the most of confusing matters. The worldwide standard for the brake lever is "the rear one on the right" except the UK, Australia (and probably New Zealand and South Africa) where it is the left-hand lever to control the rear brake. Now, motorcycles worldwide have their front brake lever on the right; except of the French scooters, where the front brake lever is on the left...Follow where the brake cables go after crossing behind the handlebar bag: the left cable disappears into the down tube on its way to the rear wheel; the right cable runs down to the front wheel. It's the same on my Trek Powerfly 5 and Dean Randonneur.

That boardwalk is lovely! I especially like the photo full of blues! Just for my orientation: How many grams is your camera? I consider buying a compact camera with a super-zoom lens and these tend to weigh almost as much as a DSLR. Need your information to think more on the subject. What handlebar bag are you using, @David Berry?This is the route that I like to take when I'm not in a hurry… which is almost always. It's so much pleasanter than riding next to a motorway.
Oh, he always offers me beer post-ride The point is I have to drive home so can't drink it Regarding the new word (drafting), you wouldn't believe how much of the cycling terminology I had to learn during the several months of my stay on the Forums; both English and Polish. Another gain of being here!Note: I think brother Jacek owes you a cold beer for riding in your slipstream (drafting).

The better half and I got out and did a short ride out of Philomont yesterday. So we were in your part of the county while you were exploring up towards Leesburg. I've been slammed with work this week and spent most of the weekend at the computer. I'm hoping to get out later today, but it will depend on how quickly I get this design off my desk and over to the client.I headed north, more into @jabberwocky's territory (I fully expected to see him out today, but must have just missed him), with a mixture of paved and gravel roads. It was a chance to see some old familiar roads from a new angle (via a bike), and to decide if I wanted to make this route a one-off, or a routine.
Looks like you went out Lincoln Rd, and back by Telegraph Springs. If you're in that area again, instead of Lincoln Rd, try taking Fork Rd a little further and take Shelburne Glebe to Oakland Green. Both gravel and super pretty.Oh, and the route? Definitely going in my book of regular favorites.
