    Half decaf black tea, quarter water, quarter cranberry juice, tsp salt. I've dubbed it the Salty Palmer. Works like a charm. Would rather drink something wet than have to chew something dry. YMMV.

    No doubt - I have friends (women) in the U.K. that are ahead of the leader by a couple thousand. It's your own trend that matters.



    Same boat here in Colorado. Last winter was brutal.

    Returning two pair of Castelli after about ten rides each because of thin Lycra and stitching coming apart. Santini is built to last, fits well, and is my go-to.

    Yes.

    FTR, I quit drinking entirely almost 5 years ago. Also eat much less red meat. Haven't seen gout again in that time. Absolutely worth it.

    Last year, I did the logistics. Order placed right after the 4th of July, received in mid-Sept. If we use Primal again, turnaround may be a tad shorter.
