    Sort of reminds me of one of those pictures of a shark getting trapped in a gill net.

    Probably the cyclists your complaints are about aren't the type to visit this forum. I personally can't stand riders (usually men in their 20s) who startle me by passing me with no vocal warning on a...

    I have a Kurt Kinetics fluid trainer I'm not presently using that she can rehab on. I'm in Santa Clara though, so it might not be convenient to you. Ping me if interested.

    About 25 years ago I did the ride from the valley floor to Glacier Point. I don't remember the exact mileage, but I think it was probably about 15-18 miles each way with about 3,500 of climb. Both...

    I got berated on Sunday

    After a yoga class on Sunday I was feeling ambitious and decided to ride up OLH to W LH, 84, W Alpine, Page Mill, which is about a 57 mile loop from my home.
    I've done this ride about a dozen times...

    I agree it's pretty cool looking and probably really good for commuting when you just want to get to work without sweating too much. However, I'm old enough to remember the heyday of mopeds (Puchs,...

    A sprain in your wrist that you almost don't feel after a week wasn't much of a sprain. The scabs that form from the road rash will hurt for two-three weeks but that's about it. Any accident has...

    The Foothill killer plea deal is nine years in the state pen (he might be able to see his dad there). Somehow bragging about reckless driving in social media wasn't a wise move.

    Sounds like maybe he wanted to sober up before turning himself in.

    Could it be weight that detectors sense? Once, I turned left onto El Monte by triggering the light from Foothill Expressway and a (much thinner) rider marveled to my chagrin that he couldn't do...

    This competitiveness is all kind of stupid because one doesn't know which rider has ridden further (or harder) at the point of contact. For all one knows the individual you're going to pass on King's...

    I have noticed that much cycling clothes/equipment has reflective material that I don't even expect was built in. For instance my SIDI Megas and Mavic helmet have this quality. I think the reflective...

    The thing that's so unbelievable to me that if he'd stayed retired after 2005, none of this would have come to light. Some people just can't quit when they're ahead--a lesson not to get too greedy.

    I like the HW9 descent a lot when there are no trailing cars but hate it when there is traffic behind me. I probably ride in more aggresively than I otherwise would in attempt to stay in front of...

    If you consider Santa Cruz part of the Bay Area the Bonny Doon descent from Empire Grade was a blast (I haven't done it in 19 years--the pavement quality was very smooth then, but I don't know about...

    Wow, I read in the Merc about a couple of middle aged guys from the UK in Yosemite who had trained for a El Cap climb and probably have to return home disappointed. Sounds like you're in a similar...

    Let's hope there's now some movement in the case. Usually the kind of people who are willing to run from an accident have the friends they deserve--i.e., friends willing to turn them in for $10K.

    I'm with Carfree's analysis of the video. If it was me on the bike I would had been furious that someone would have been willing at a minimum to scare me witless rather than pausing for five seconds...

    I've watched the video of the left turning car about 10 times now. It's almost impossible for me to understand this. Is the driver's brain programed to stop, turn head left, look for "car" or...

    Ok, I usually roll in the high 30s on that part of Skyline. At those speeds you're so vulnerable--I think it would take at least a quarter mile to safely stop a bike. Since that part of the road I...

    I consider the stretch between the King's stop sign and Tripp as the most hazardous part of the whole descent because of potential left turning autos (and some bicyclists) from King's onto Tripp....
