    87 miles, 8.2K of climbing, including the brutal Vesuvius climb up to the Blue Ridge Parkway. I've done this climb nine or ten times before, but this is the first time I almost had to stop because I...

    Hmm, there's a thought. Maybe I should switch to the mountain bike pedals so I can use my walkable...

    That's a nice place to ride and get lost in :) Lots of new construction going in, like everywhere else these day, but still some nice roads.

    MoM is a weird ride. It's hard enough, but it really has two big climbs only. One is about 60 miles in, and the last is at the finish. There's some serious steep rollers along the way, but you have a...

    Ha, when I was 26 I weighed over 350 pounds... and I was on my way up from there. I can't help getting older, but at least I can try to keep from getting fatter.

    You could park in front of my house or even in the driveway if you want. I'm about 10 miles from the trailhead, but it's rideable on a bike.

    Most of the time my delayed-onset cramps come where you would expect -- in the hamstrings, the groin, the calves etc. But I can get them in really weird places like my wrists, or my neck, or the...

    I'll be doing it. This is my fourth time I think. I haven't decided if I'll do the 100 or the 75. I'm way out of shape, and have gotten a late start this year. I've only done 2 100 mile rides so far,...

    35 miles near Lexington, up and down the local ridges and valleys. It's amazing the great riding you can do here and never really be more than 5 or 10 miles away from town.

    Saturday rode 104 miles, 6.5K of hills up past Douthat State Park to Deerfield and back via Goshen pass. Just about perfect weather. Road conditions a little rough, so I got beat up a little bit, but...

    wonderful pics! I'm so glad the weather and timing worked out for you. The only thing that would have been a bit nicer is if the trees were leafed out a bit more. I think they're behind schedule...

    It's great when a plan comes together.

    I hope you're not seriously planning to kick the bucket now though :)

    I need to settle on one jersey I guess. I have a series of varying tan lines on my upper arms from wearing jerseys with shorter and longer sleeves.

    22 miles on the gravel. Got a flat. On the front tire? OK, fine.

    Then dropped a chain, which somehow managed to munge up the rear derailleur. The chain keeps slipping off the jockey wheel into the...

    I often go a year or more without flats. Now I've just had two flats in two days, on two separate bikes. Can't wait for today's ride :(

    Happened yesterday ironically. Dropped a chain somehow, which is usually not a big deal. But it managed to do something to the rear derailleur. I'm not sure what exactly yet. Maybe the chain is...

    Keep on chugging! I've never had a chance to ride farther south than Fancy Gap. I might head down that way later in the week.
