I apologize for the sour sound of this message, I can't quite get it worded without that tone though that's not my position.

For $40 you still get the meal and the vest. If you view it as $40 to...

I hate bullies, I was bullied all my school years. When I get bully all that rage comes to a head but I have to watch myself in such situations. So far I've been lucky. But as it's been said: to...

That looks like a great ride (really I love riding down the shore and the Barrens). I wish I could have told you about the ride to the Mullica Bridge (no food, no water, no civilization). We do that...

Oops, sorry I was thinking East bound, your going West bound. BTW, you might want to list the entire route on something like Bikely.com. Most bike rides heading south go through Chatsworth to avoid a...

For my first Brooks Pro I tried all sorts of things to break it in but I don't think it needed it (pre-softened). The second Pro I didn't do anything, 50 miles and it was as good as the first (very...
