    Decided to try my initial 50 mile route instead of my last 65'er. Little did I remember how slow riding on limestone dust & gravel is, oh and the road parallel to the trail wasn't any better, steep...

    Keep up the good work Mike, I know all too well how tough it is to keep up an exercise routine (whether biking or lifting) when you have a sick kid to care for, but family always comes first. I hope...

    I just carry 3-4 different size hex keys which also doubles as tire levers. I don't carry any other tool on the road with me, I'm never much further than 70 miles from home and could always limp the...

    Exactly. 150 was just the number I used for insurance, so I didn't quit after the initial 'break-in' period of getting a new bike. Little did I realize back then how much I would ride, otherwise I...

    I've thought about it a couple times as I ride my bike on fast, busy two-lane highways, but really don't fret about it. For what it's worth, I could very possibly die in my sleep from a handful of...

    30 miles, in just under 2 hours with a 10-12 mph crosswind, definitely some kind of record(for me)! Legs were still sore from Sunday's ride and were screaming at me at about the 25 mile mark.

    Could be an hydration issue, especially if you rode hard on a warm day. This was my cause when I would routinely get cramps/muscle tightness. The harder I work out the more I sweat, thus the more...

    For me, any activity is an appetite suppressant. So long as I'm staying busy I'm not thinking of food, thus I'm not eating.
