    My knees act up now and then. I used to wear a neoprene brace, the kind available at pharmacies, but it finally began to fall apart. Lately I've been experimenting with kinetic tape which seems to...

    You might want to repost or have a moderator move your post to the training forum or the racing forum. Many people there race and know a great deal about training. Good luck.

    Might as well get used to claims from alternate reality as we are soon to be bombarded during election campaigns. Or, turn off the TV and go ride the bike. That's what I'm gonna do. I figure that...

    Jim from Boston has given you fair warning about Boston area roads. I rode today, 40 miles in the Rehoboth area and, yep, I got lost, sort off. Several of the town or county roads I was on did not...

    I don't race and I'm slow also but I still enjoy our club rides with the other not-racing and slow members. Fortunately, there are enough members at my level that I'm always riding with someone.

    There is much good advice here. It has been said that "experience is the best teacher" but it does not have to be your own experience. We can learn from others and this is a good place for that.

    The groin area for cyclists gets such a workout with constant sawing from side to side grinding in body oils, skin bacteria and anything else that can accumulate there that I now clean the area well...

    Hi again dicktill. Even though I've been continuously refining my bike fit, I still work at it. It seems as if the more riding I do, the more sensitive I become to minor changes. In the last three...

    It will help if you can post several photos of yourself on the bike. In the meantime, moving the saddle back a bit will bring the hamstrings into play which will help round out the pedal stroke.

    I always assume the sit bones belong on the widest part of the saddle and for myself that is where they end up. If I'm having a very good day and really cranking, I seem to slide forward a bit. ...

    Cadence practice is much like musicians doing scales to warm up. Even concert musicians do them. Cyclists can use a spin bike or rollers to work on fast cadence. My cadence tends to be on the low...
