    With any luck, the rains we had yesterday and this morning have washed some of the sand off the roads.

    I'm 6'2", and when I was at 145 lbs, in my running days, I looked like a death camp survivor.

    Don't know about the rail trail, but the Falmouth and Canal bike paths are OK to ride on.

    Th roads have a lot of sand on the shoulder, and some are in rough shape, but they are rideable.

    I can't tell you what the "best" are. Only which one of my several sets are my personal choice, for my butt, on my saddle, for a century. DeMarchi.

    Hinault. You have to love a guy who would jump off his bike, and throw a decent punch at a jackass spectator---which the Badger did on more than one occasion. :D

    It would be great to be 19 again, when I would do 50-60 miles on my "10 speed" wearing sneakers in my toe clips, almost knee length tube socks, and jorts with no shirt. :lol:

    And this is where I have to call BS on him, because at these "special sport schools" taking what they gave you as "supplements" was mandatory.

    The chances of Jens developing in the East German sports machine without ever touching PEDs are about the same as my chances of walking on water.

    No fault (aka PIP) covers medical expenses only, not property damage, nor pain and suffering. Many drivers are woefully under-insured on their PIP. You can burn up PIP limits on an ER visit, with...

    Snell certified, and was rated tops in impact protection by Consumer Reports awhile back. Weight is right around 300 grams. Actually lighter than my Lazer Genesis which was 338 grams.

    They're not equivalent. I've done both. Running a marathon under 3 hours is harder than riding a sub-5 hour century.

    Riding/running just to finish? I still would have to say running is harder.
