Started at 396 at 34, picked up the bike at 380, down to 245 about 2 years later, and still (slowly dropping). First bike ride was just less than 8 miles on a flat trail. That exact ride is a...

Richard - Good on you and keep up the great riding!

Down from 396 in September 2008 to 232 today. Did my first double-century this summer and competing in my first half-ironman in 18 days. Lots of great advice and encouragement from BF folks along...

It's going to continue to get easier as you get lighter as well. At 290 I was a wobbly mess trying to stand and climb, so I avoided it as much as possible. As I got lighter (now about 232),...

First century was the first day of STP in 2009. I had done some solo metrics at that point, but having the support/safety net was a good way to go at that point in my riding. Now, my preference is...

So now it's way too built up. It's just one of those little things in the world that makes you appreciate some random stranger who you'll never meet.

Why do you want my face to twitch angrily? What did I ever do to you?

Forrest, are you trying to put a reverse jinx on the weather so we get something resembling summer this year?

Speed vs. Elevation?

My biking Obi-Wan tells me that my speed hammering on flats at 4000 - 6000' elevations will be reduced a few MPH at sea-level. I agree that at several thousand feet of elevation difference, all...

I go about it the exact opposite way. No ice cream except on days I've ridden 50 miles (although I'll be bumping that up to a metric shortly). And then not overboard. But that's some good-looking...

I'd say it's a skinny person's world and we're just living in it, but recent CDC stats don't really support that anymore. Regardless, my idea comes from a fun place and not a mean-spirited one.

I don't, but I'm looking at 30-35 miles between provisions at the most. Will likely put 3rd bottle in my jersey and stuff a couple of water purification tablets in my saddlebag.
