    Looks like an invitation to introduce the Quack Cyclists! They put on the Devil Mountain and Knoxville Double Centuries and are the best bunch of quackers out there. Here's a link to their website:...

    The bad news is that the attempt at my 2nd Devil Mountain Double ended with a DNF at mile 181 (still counts as a century though . . . right?). My back gave out on Sierra Road (about 2/3 of the way...

    I've had this kind of thing happen pretty much all my adult life. My doctors have always said, "Not dangerous, don't worry about it."

    So I don't! It's only caused me to absolutely pass out...

    The root cause was a crash about 15 years ago that never really healed correctly. As a result, my right arm is about 5mm shorter than my left. So . . . as I was just riding along (with my...

    Thanks for the further update! Looks like they are getting close to a fully open Coyote Creek Trail . . . after so many years it's been closed.

    I agree with what The Baron said, plus, cycling you are doing something you really enjoy while driving . . . not so much.

    I really don't see many other bicycle commuters on my route. The ones I do see are usually on the sidewalk (I ride on the road). Sometimes a fixed gear teenager, sometimes an Hispanic on a BSO...

    Yes Greg, It does get easier if you just allow yourself to go slower . . .

    On shoes, not a fetish since each bike with different pedals requires different cleats, hence different shoes.

    True Lesper4, I've seen that on there for about a year now. Bass Lake is a fun and relatively easy double.
