    Any organized ride within a 20 mile start of my house, I ride to.

    Anything farther than that, I have 2 options:
    1. Ride the day before
    2. Drive

    Last year I did a 70 mile ride to get to a...

    I've recently added a fat bike to my fleet. If I had studded tires for it, I could see using it as my only winter bike. It's main benefit is on non-plowed or poorly plowed roads.

    I can't count the number of times I passed people on my trike. Passed on the downhill and the bottom of the uphill.. then they passed me and we leapfrogged again.

    I'm loving my fat bike for winter riding. It handles the slush, packed snow, and ruts so much better. The bike feels stable on just about everything compared to my mountain bike with 2" wide tires...

    For slow climbs, you can't beat a trike.

    The only issue I ever had on trails with a trike was the poles they use to keep vehicles off. I had to slow way down to go through those. That, and...

    If I was only going to be doing trails, I'd had stayed with my trike. It was fun with almost no learning curve. Very stable. The biggest downside was obstacle avoidance and riding on roads with...

    I tried it for a year. My truck never left the driveway unless my wife's van was there. I only drove it just to keep it running. Then I sold it.

    I pretty much went car free, so it had minimal...

    I have a bigger helmet for winter riding. Sometimes I have to put on a stocking cap just so it fits right, not because I need it to be warm.

    The ball cap helps me a lot with snow. If I put my...

    If I see one coming behind me, I usually pull off at a side street or parking lot. If that's not possible, they usually stop their salt and give me plenty of room.

    I've tried exactly twice on my fixed gear bicycle. I failed both times.. I didn't want to learn badly enough to try again. I've never felt the need for it.

    I had one on my ICE Sprint. I still have the BROL flag that I got for it. I can't figure out a good way to put it on my Bacchetta Giro. I'd like to put it on depending on the riding conditions.

    Alcohol makes it almost impossible for me to lose weight. Both from a caloric standpoint as well as cravings.

    Caffeine also makes it difficult for me.. messes with my appetite regulation.
