I was at the Hotel Pennsylvania again this summer, and I saw someone else bringing a bike into their room. Presumably it is still allowed there. I didn't try it myself though, I took the bus.

I think your HR is not only based on fitness, but also genetics. My father is in his 60s, and his resting HR is 40. I am 29 and mine is 45. I am probably not very fit compared to many members.

In Philly, people will steal anything off a bike. I know someone who had a bell stolen. One of those cheap $5 bells. No idea why someone would steal that. I never leave my panniers on my bike,...

I have a Fuji Touring. I love it, but I had to replace the rear wheel in order to stop killing spokes. The REI bike may be a better deal if it doesn't have that problem. I've done some rides with...

What sucks about the downtown one? The coffee, the atmosphere or something else? (I've been past it, but I don't think I've ever been inside.)
