    Filson is great. I got my SO one of the lined, ear-flap hats. It is really well made and super warm. As Muirenn said, pricey but excellent quality.

    Cellphone ban for cyclists

    A city councilmember is proposing a bill banning cellphone use by cyclists in NYC. I see this fairly often -- even had a close call with a clearly distracted cyclist. It seems like a good idea,...
