    Let's get this clear. You pushed yourself very hard on an 11 mile section and completed it in 65 minutes? Does this mean it was very hilly? If not, this doesn't really compute.

    Don't pretend to be stupid. Of course it doesn't "follow". Before you could make such an assertion you would need to know the proportion of simple falls that gave rise to head injuries, the severity...

    Sorry, haven't been back to this thread for a while. There is lots of recent research showing that vitamin supplementation is at best a scam and at worst, harmful. It's easy to find using google. but...

    Conditions - and drivers - differ, so we all make our own judgments about this. Personally, though, I feel more conspicuous, and therefore safe, in full darkness than I do in low light conditions at...

    Try this. Not as strenuous as burpees, but still a good workout, and it is relatively easy to vary the intensity simply by adjusting your speed.

    Is this a USAC Cat 5 mass-start race? If so, my advice would be "don't do it". Bike races are dangerous places, and if you have never ridden in a group you are likely to be a hazard to yourself and...

    If you are asking whether they'll negotiate a price on (say) the brifters, derailleurs and cassette that is lower than the price of those individual items, I'd say that would be very unlikely. You're...

    On the subject of weight, I am disgusted to find that I have ballooned up to 213 lbs. Target is 196 by January 1st.
