    I got a Mio Fuse on Saturday. So far it's been out on three rides and a hike. Function is very very close to the Garmin chest strap. It doesn't cut out, and readings seem accurate as far as I can...

    You can change what's on the screen mid-ride; the display and data recording are separate functions.

    I have my current speed, ride time, and time of day, distance, heart rate as a % of max, and...

    I've been wanting a mountain bike for years! This fall I went backpacking in the North Cascades and must have passed 20 MTBs on the trail. Camped on a gorgeous lake, kept thinking how much I'd...

    Thanks RJM! The light changing color is a cool feature, it doesn't matter what the exact number is, just what zone. I read a review that says it vibrates when you go from one zone to another, too -...

    The company I work for pays us about $200 a year to wear an activity monitor. It keeps our health premiums down if we can show the insurance company people are being proactive about their health. ...

    Optical HRMs worn on the wrist

    Does anybody in here use one? Do they work as well as the chest strap?

    More cars also means more polite drivers in the mix, so your chances of encountering a jerky one don't change. (At least not based on the number of cars.)

    It's much better to ride in Seattle than in the suburbs. They'll hit you for fun in Kirkland or Bellevue. I think part of it is political, and part is that there are more bikes in the city. Last...

    I can do basic touch stuff like swiping across the screen to change it (on a Garmin and on my smartphone) with any pair of thin merino glove liners. Bonus: they keep my hands warm enough, even in...

    I think you can park overnight at the campground; people put kayaks and canoes in there and portage to Ross Lake, then stay several days. You could park at a trailhead if you're more comfortable...

    A couple years ago somebody posted a video (actually I think it was a slideshow) of a ride from Seattle to San Francisco. I think it was close to 1,000 miles along the coast. The guy said he and...

    Personally I don't think it's appropriate that it should cost $12 to ride your bike on a public road (and then still get honked at and buzzed). I just didn't want to give the impression that NPS was...

    This is called RAMROD, for ride around Mount Rainier in one day. It's an organized club ride. A lot of people do personal BOMRODs, best of Mount Rainier in one day. You show up early in the...

    I don't want to give people the wrong impression. The fee for cyclists is going up from $5 to $12, but it's not just us. Driving a car into the park costs $15 today and will cost $25 next year if...

    There's more to life than cycling. Upper body strength is good if you ever paddle a kayak, impress members of the opposite sex, or move to another home. Whether it helps in a race or not isn't that...
  18. FYI: US national parks are proposing fee increase, including for cyclists.

    Currently it costs $5 to ride a bike on gated sections of roads in Mount Rainier and Olympic National Parks. NPS is proposing to raise the fee to $12. If the proposal goes through, it will take...

    Layers, appropriate for the conditions and the rider.

    It takes some experimentation to figure out what's appropriate.

    You can also fold it in half (or quarters) and cover your ears and forehead. I have a thin wool one, it's warm when I fold it, but stuffs into a pocket.

    Wool just about everything, wind breaker,...

    If you're comfortable riding in 5 degree weather in a speedo, that means you generate a lot of heat and tolerate the cold well, it doesn't mean a speedo is warm.

    How early can you do that ride? The scenery is fantastic, I bet it would be incredible in late spring with snow on the peaks.

    Speaking of Prince Creek, I got dropped off there this spring and...
