The things we think about while riding. My mind goes everywhere. Last night on my way home (in 102 deg temps and 76%Rh) I was coasting down a shallow grade, still sweating. I started thinking about how nice it is to coast!
In the commuting forum I know we have Roadies who commute, MTBers who commute, Urban Assault riders who commute, BMX bikers who commute, and probably some other catagories I can't think of!
For me, I'm a long time (over 30 years now) long distance tourer. Hundreds of miles and several week trips are awesome. For years I paid close attention to my cadence. Touring, commuting, cruising, it didn't matter. Cadence was everything. Back then, NO COASTING.
Now that I'm a little older, I enjoy coasting. Slowing down to smell the flowers (sometimes literally)
So how about you? Do you coast?
