Wow. I'm glad I asked about temperature. I was assuming, as was my biking colleague, that September might be too warm. I had no idea it could get that cool in Sep. I wouldn't have thought of...

So, when you say "summer," I'm assuming we're talking after public school lets out. So, when does it let out in VA? In NC?

So if I were to do a ride in late May, I'm...

Thanks. That makes sense.

Update, FWIW.

I did order a Kask from Amazon. A medium, which was just too small (my head size is smack-dab in between a medium and a large). I returned it and...

I'm looking for a lower profile helmet. Mine does...

I thought I should clarify that the 2013 bike was actually not a $300 discount, but a $900 discount ($2600, but original list was $3500). It was $300 less than the 2016, which the other dealer...

I did it. Went with the 2016 Domane 5.2. Looking at the photos online of the white/silver, I didn't think I'd love it. It was "okay."

Nice. Is that the outpost handlebar roll?

Do you feel like the harness is necessary? Would I be okay just doing it with a dry bag and straps? Does the harness really add that much in stability?...
