I'm interested in doing this early next week when it's supposed to be sunnier. Can anyone tell me how much of the road is closed to general public traffic. Thank you.

I'd guess the #1 (http://www.bikeforums.net/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=1) thing to be looking for would be frame damage from a crash or excessive corrosion. Also, checking the bike shifts...

I've heard a good way to get yourself punched is to put your hand in the glove belonging to a major league player. Seems like bikers are similarly possessive of their steeds. My main fear for lending...

I rode a rented Roubaix last week and was impressed with the amount of tire clearance in the rear. It was running a 25 but appeared that it could handle a 28 of any brand with ease (a 28 on my...

I think a just sentence would have involved no driving for this idiot for a number of years. Make him ride a bike.

Notice it's a pickup truck to boot. On the rare occasions I've driven them I've hated it. They are terrible handling vehicles. Why does she have one?

I've always liked biking during the SB game weather permitting (which in the Bay Area it almost always is). Even traffic down a road like highway 84 in Woodside is very light.
