    We'll be up there (or is it down there?) in April with the tandem. I've wanted to bike there for years and this year we've decided to do it. Oh and if you're looking to get rid of those scallops,...

    I'm really glad you posted this as I think about the same thing quite often when I ride. My theoretical max HR is 165. I know that I've had it up to 180, from taking my pulse at the top of a long...
