    Well played.

    A shoulder is not a bike lane. It can be used as one, sometimes, but the thing is, you just cannot count on a shoulder the way you can a bike lane. In my AO, the shoulder can go from being a de facto...

    GP 4000s are pretty sweet. I intend to try other good ones but the GP's are wearing well and riding nice.

    I would not sweat a few bucks on bike tires; they are a cheap pleasure in the big...

    A buddy and I kinda faked each other out. Before the ride we were both whining about how we felt, preparing the other guy for a "light" ride... which appears to have fueled the contrarian in both of...

    Good, bright, front and rear blinkers.

    Fredly? Nah. An indicator of a cyclist operating on a higher plane? Yah.

    I'm very Fredly. Then again, I usually am riding alone on rural roads.

    I laugh when I pass the bleached bones on non-Fredly riders in the ditch... non-Freds who's tragic hipness left them fatally...

    Way to go! My buddy wanting to ride 50 at 50 is what got me riding. Trust me, you have only just begun, and in many many ways, it gets much easier and better from here! Salute!

    Buddy and I did a varied-topography 34 miles today despite starting out in a very light rain. This was out southwest of Eugene, OR. Other than being sublimely pastoral, no traffic, wonderful rolling...

    Everybody gotta run sometime...

    He's on his way back to where he came from. That's not all bad. Fair winds to you, Coasting.

    Hills rule. A ride with hills > flat ride, by a wide margin.

    Bike fit is big. Going clipless is big. But honestly for me the answer to the OP's question is "hills hills and more hills!"

    Sheesh.

    I do long rural rides, solo. Cell phone doesn't work everywhere out there. A pump is clearly the better choice for what amounts to mission-critical backup gear.

    This isn't THAT hard,...

    I have a SL4 Roubaix Expert. All I can tell you is that it handles superbly and has plenty of pop, for me anyway.
