Basically, I have ruined any chance at a successful relationship with four LBS

Dear Local Bike Shops:

Our relationship has hit a rough patch. I appreciate what you do for me, the community, and for cycling in the area, but you seriously have to cut back on the guilt trips....

Humiliated after crashing

I've been road cycling for two years and have probably 8,000 miles on my two bikes. I've ridden on beautiful rustic highways, climbed Mt. Haleakala in Maui, toured crowded PCH from LA to Ventura,...

Other than that, know this: You will fall. Everyone falls. At...

Awesome vid. I was just there in December. I did half the West Maui loop (ran out of food and called wife), I rode from Kannapali to Wailea, and I summited Haleakala. Best cycling of my life.
