    Gravel roads in my area are taking shape. This past weekend they were firm and dry. Almost time for my gravel bike to get its gravel tires back on in place of the winter tires...but I don't want to...

    Mr IGH - I like your two wheel idea. I've thought of buying studded tires, but have never pulled the trigger. With that quick and easy option of swapping wheels I may ride more. Will give it some...

    Given where you live, pretty awesome that you got in 7 or 8 miles of relatively dry gravel this time of year.

    I'm getting ready for a ride this morning but unfortunately the temp is -10c and there...

    With SO MANY of these posts about bikes and gear, I thought I would mix it up.

    This past Sunday I was riding my tourer/winter/gravel bike on the roads around my town. Where I live, outside...

    If you're struggling with fit, just...

    I went for a 10k walk before work yesterday morning. I live in a residential area, so lots of houses. Stuck to a sidewalk and paved pedestrian path. It was about -5C if not colder. I listened to...

    When I read the title of this thread I thought you were a hiker who wanted to ride to a trail, and then hike with your pack, and then ride home. I thought this was a great idea...and still do, but...

    I spend about 15 minutes each morning doing some light yoga-like stretches. On my back - letting the legs fall to one side with my head to the other (with a foot one a knee...if this makes sense)...

    I've been fighting some neck/shoulder issues after 20 years of working at a desk. All was good until this summer. Well, before then I had the odd tightness or discomfort, sometimes on the bike, but...

    Great information, thanks everyone.

    One of my problems is not using the devices (or other methods) I have until I'm quite sore. I had a tendency to get tight hips, which seemed to be coming from...

    On driving trips with my wife and daughter I would like to bring my bike with me. I would like to have it stored safely in the car. I'm ok with removing/installing parts of a bike, and I don't mind...

    It's between road and mountain biking. But who really cares what anyone says or thinks, try riding a gravel road with whatever bike you have, drop the tire pressure if it's a road bike, see how you...

    Saddle Width and "Support"

    I changed saddles last fall and I'm not sure I made the right move. I'll go back a few years to explain.
