The last time I went to a Wal-Mart was at night to buy a tube. All the bike stores in the area were closed and I needed a spare for the next day. After almost getting run over in the parking lot,...

I feel it is the same thing as being a male with shaved legs. If you have to ask, you just don't know. If you don't know, then I don't care. A majority of bikers have these tan lines. It is just...

The geese where I live always hiss at me. It sounds like some kind of "war cry". Whenever I hear it, I just ride away as fast as possible.

However, congratulations. Riding a century is...

I have caught myself almost saying "On your left" to people that are moving too slow in the hallways of my building. Once I realize what I have almost done, I wonder if I have a problem or not.
