    A new cross bike for under $1k is difficult to begin with. Most places don't have a large selection of Cross bikes. You may have to order one.

    Weekdays are quiet and almost no traffic in the mornings. Weekends are lots of cyclists, motorcyclists, cars, skateboarders, etc. If you want quiet, go weekday mornings. If you like to meet and...

    My philosophy is save the best for the end. I prefer the GMR twisting descent over the 100 mph Baldy Rd descent. A GMR descent is more enjoyable to me because it's longer and less traffic. ...

    That was a memorable ride. We wanted to beat the rain. We could see the clouds coming our way, but sometimes the desire to keep riding gets into the way of common sense. We reached the shack, then...

    When I visited the Netherlands, I did see a couple wearing lycra and helmets amidst the sea of bicycles. They stuck out like a sore thumb. It was pretty obvious they were tourists.

    I remember that crazy year, too. It was a massive line of cars trying to get into the parking lot, while the route took us through the same road. You had to squeeze around buses, cars, etc. The road...

    I have ridden the route to the first SAG many times. It's just luck of the draw when it comes to timing them. Sometimes, I've hit every stop light, other times I have flown through green. I think...

    The route is generally very nice and well thought out. But, the endgame through San Diego has always been difficult. I think this year we spent more time in San Diego than other years. In years...

    My legs were gone, my butt hurt and I've been re-hydrating myself since yesterday. It was hot, the pace was quick and the wind was unbearable. I've done many centuries, and the recurring theme song...

    The good thing about the climb is it's short. The bad thing is it's steep. I think pacing is important as well as perseverance. Climbing GMR with Beanz helps, too. It prepares your...

    I also ride in the big ring in the front while on road bikes. I can attest that Beanz does spin, much more than the average rider. In fact, that is the best way to tell if he's tired, when his spin...
