    Here in New Hampshire I would discourage winter riding. It's just not safe. Back in the 90's there was a girl in our group who was a CAT 2 and she was trying to ride outside all winter. She was hit...

    Dude. She's dead. It's not a debate. Common sense and a preponderance of the evidence at the scene suggests that he was going too fast for the conditions. Bad choice, bad decision. Now he has to live...

    A long time ago the owner and operator of the bike shop where I bought my first bike (1983) told me that someone of my size and weight (5'5-125lbs) could ride cross chained all day long and probably...

    I'm nearly 70. I still love to get on my bike and chase the wind. I've been doing it since 1983 when I gave up my running shoes for wheels. I realize that I am operating a piece of equipment that...

    Last May I was riding on a country road at about 9 o'clock in the morning. It was a fine day, birds chirping, 65 degrees, a guy was mowing his lawn and the smell of freshly cut grass was sweet. Up in...

    Some are compelled to push the envelope for reasons we may never understand. Most of us would be overjoyed with a nice wide shoulder to ride on. That road looks like the type I would avoid even with...

    It's a spinning bike like you find in a gym. I can burn some major calories on it even if I can't shift it. I think some manufacturers make models that you can shift. I have another indoor exercise...

    I went to a bike shop in 2008 and noticed that they had a huge surplus of stationary Cycleops trainers for $1000. I made them an offer of $600 and they sold me one. It's exactly like this. Look at...

    Nearly 70, crashed on scarified pavement.

    On Aug. 14 I approached road construction on my 50 mile ride-scarified pavement. There was room on the right hand side to avoid it but the city had placed barrels and barriers there to prevent this....
