    Yes but I bailed after 20. It was windy as hell -- that kind of a cross wind that blows you sideways -- and my legs felt like jello. I've decided on a career change that requires me to be physically...

    Going out with a group tomorrow (Saturday). Relatively flat ride after two weekends of big climbs though we're shooting for 40. We ride a lot together, almost every weekend but often at our own...

    I've gotten so good at rollers that I can average 15-17 mph on them. Hills are another story and I think I've realized that I've built up my muscles for the flats but not the hills. So now I'm doing...

    I didn't even know I had dropped him until I got to the light and he wasn't there anymore.

    I have the same issue -- I get hot foot too. Sometimes it doesn't happen, sometimes it does. I think part of it is how much pressure I exert on the balls of my feet. I got some toe separators from my...

    Bad start, good finish

    I have a seriously experienced cyclist friend who has been kind enough to take me out and school me about the finer points of cycling. He's helped me understand cadence and gearing and when to do...

    I'm sorry about Tom. He did a good thing here. He did so much to get himself in shape only to have his health fail him. That seriously sucks. RIP, man. Ride free.

    I swear I think about you every time I'm on my bike. We went down about the same time though yours was MUCH worse. I'm glad you're doing well too.

    It's been a year this week

    Since I did a 21-mile pre-work ride and ended up having emergency bowel obstruction surgery in the wee hours of the following morning. Lost more than six weeks of riding and working out for the...

    Did my first 50 last year on my 50th. Set out to do 51 this year but only went 30. It was cold and wet and I wanted my birthday beer. :-D

    My first big real climb

    I live in Sonoma County in Northern California, an area considered by many cycling aficionados as one of the great regions to cycle. Indeed, many professional riders come here to train in what is a...

    I've thought about Bryce Canyon but I'm not sure yet how I'll do at such high altitudes. I get altitude sickness in high places (Mexico City, Mammoth, Ca. and Denver for examples) but have not been...

    I'm going to go stay with friends or in a hotel. The trip is about 5 days I think, maybe a week, because that's all I can spare now. I'm hoping to go where I can put in a couple or three good day...

    I'm thinking of doing this in March. I would say 30-60 mile rides, perhaps three in the five days I'm there. Rest for recovery and sight seeing.

    Thoughts on a solo cycling trip in NW

    I'm considering taking a 3-5 day trip from my base in Sonoma Wine Country. I've had a long, tough, emotionally grueling year which included a separation and (soon) divorce, emergency abdominal...

    Of course I'm aware of it. I don't have to like it. It's not why I go to the gym, believe it or not. I imagine guys don't go to the gym to have their a$$es stared at either. Of course, I'm going to...
