At the tail end of an 160 mile ride, finding my car keys took almost as long as the ride itself. In the scramble to get going that morning, they never left the roof of the SUV.

Many thanks to the...

Been there, but not the stud part. Rode 80 plus miles last summer with three fractured ribs and a partially collapsed lung. It reduced me to a whispering mass of pain, and embarrassment at trying to...

I'm pretty sure that is what he thought. The conversation didn't really go south though. What I was relating was m own thought process on the collarbone thing. I hope I didn't embarrass him.

To those who have wondered about the point, best guess is there probably wasn't one. It was more an observation.

I think nothing of riding one-handed because I have been this way since I was 17,...

On yesterday's commute home, I passed a rider on a small rise on the MUP. He must have tagged me for a few miles, because he was right there when I pulled up to a stoplight on one of the detours that...

Deacon: I'm not going to wade in on the foley except to echo Bill's comment that it has been a pretty common post surgical experience for me, and I don't have any usual urinary problems.

Good catch. Added to the list, although getting hit by a rich driver has some upside.

Harsh and hopefully tongue in cheek. Most of us here ride for fun. Worrying sucks the fun out. It's only natural to be a little skittish after a fall.

Here in Colorado, I ride/commute with friends on occasion, with my wife some, and do a fair number of organized rides. I wouldn't call any of it group riding as such.

I left work last night at 5 or so, looking forward to my commute home. The fates had aligned to make my past three rides down wind. With a storm moving in, I was hoping for four in a row.

Congratulations! Sounds like you did a really smart ride, and now have justification for an N+1 experience. It doesn't get much better than that.
