    Sonny's sense of humor was epic. He knew how to push buttons that would keep a senseless debate going for pages, cracking me up the whole time, as post after post his target became evermore...

    He said his goal was to retire young and move to the Caribbean. I hope there are endless white sandy beaches where he's at now.

    Shooting for a 5 hour 80-mile ride tomorrow. Should burn a few calories.

    Hit my weight targets early this month. 235lbs for the morning low and 240 and under as the evening high. Maybe 230/235 is in reach by 11-1.

    Several guys on my commute ride with windscreens, aerodynamic shields which cover them from head to toe. They can fly. I'm guessing 30-35 mph when they pass me as I'm doing 20mph.

    Sometimes when riding in wind, the HRM goes whacky. I've seen mine go over 225 and basically refuse to move even as I slowed the pace. Your test would have been to pedal slower and see if the rate...

    Hard fought 60 miles in four hours today. 10-15 mph headwind from the NE seemed to be at my face for most of the run. When it was at my back, I could really move though. Peak speeds of 25mph; slowest...

    Knocked off a century today with a much stronger rider. He helped me out by hanging back, while pushing my limits at the same time. We did the ride in 6 hours. It kicked my ass.

    The stronger rider...

    Just finished my last ride for September. 50 total commuter miles today, 30 this afternoon. Bad riding month though--barely got in 500. Too busy.

    Good weight month though--must have lost close to...

    Wow! That's a heck of a tough pace to hold for 100 miles. I've never broke 6 hrs. Good job, Beas.

    Smoking is a big killer. It shaves 10 years off of life, at least. Add to it stress and obesity, and I bet the number approaches 25.

    It's like anything else. Equipment helps, but high impact takes its toll. And, anyone with weight is going to do damage a lot faster than some featherweight with great muscle tone. Cycling is a...

    I know a guy your age that decided ten years ago to start jogging in order to lose weight. He weighed 250lbs, and I suggested he bike instead, avoiding all that high stress impact. Of course, he knew...

    Most of us are in this boat: Clydes; because we've failed to maintain a good exercise schedule and diet. Dropping 20, 30, 50 pounds don't come easy or from finding excuses. Crying about it, saying,...

    Late night if dinner was missed, I eat a couple scoops of peanut butter--the good kind, made of only peanuts, no sugar or added oils--sliced banana and some coconut milk in a bowl. If real hungry,...

    Heh heh...I pulled my aerobars off the bike and also replaced my air pump with CO2 cartridges. I'm sure that did more for increasing my speed than the 20 lbs I shed off my gut and fat ass. :)

    There is a lot consider regarding food. Eating the wrong food can actually leave you hungry, even if you scarf on thousands of calories per meal. It's kind of amazing.

    I am finding myself to be...

    Miles are down this month. I commuted much less than hoped due to aggressive scedule at work, but that was pretty good exercise in its own right. The vigorous activity kept me out of my desk jockey...

    Same here--had a great commute, best time all season both coming and going. Perfect weather: no wind, high 70's. Knocked off the morning 20-mile ride in an hour-five minutes. The 30-mile ride home...
