    Climbed Grimes Rd without a stop for the first time. Crazy steep, relentless, long. I guess that's my high point. Rode 3 or 4 50-milers, tons of 30-something, but all in all I'm a little disappointed...

    To me, a hill is a golden opportunity on a ride to mix it up; get up out of the saddle, mess around at the extremes in terms of cadence, etc. Plus that, I LIVE for aerobic burn... so while it hurts...

    Mach, we are in a historic heat wave here. 97F today. I may not get a ride (!) this weekend.

    I talk to the creatures of the world on my rides. I also sing loudly and, let's just be honest here, very comically, through a couple high speed winding descents. To warn the deer. Think...

    Dave, I am about the most even-keeled, least explosive person you're ever gonna meet.

    An an apparant exception is that when my bodily safety is intentionally put at risk by someone, combined with...

    I'm a gun guy. But this isn't going there.

    I do carry pepper spray (for dogs) and would use it on an attacking human as a defensive weapon.

    Quoting this for the sheer stupidity of the thing.

    You do realize that him thinking I'm taking more lane than he thinks is reasonable means NOTHING, legally or morally? First of all, I wasn't....

    I'm a big strong guy but not really a fighter. I don't want to "fight" this person, though I was perfectly willing at the time. But flipping the bird is pure reflex. Not that I go through life...
  9. Harassed by a driver: when you know where they live

    Got harassed yesterday on my local 30-mile hill ride. Chugging up a hill, as far over as I can get to the edge of the road, going maybe 7-8 mph tops, and he waited till he was right on me, stood on...

    It'll be years before it's somewhat normal again, and that's if you don't keep re-tweaking it. A difficult injury to truly put in the rear view mirror.

    The good news is- I bet you'll be able to...

    I find that exactly 100 psi gives me the best balance of compliance, resiliency, ride quality, durability, visual ooh-la-la, pinch flat resistance, rolling resistance, longevity, vertical softness...

    Hills hills hills. They are my passion. Did 52 miles yesterday with some massive climbing. Not saying I'm "good" at hills in the big picture, but I far prefer them to the god-awful, soul-sucking,...

    Oh no you are not!

    Let's be clear on one thing here. You goin' DOWN! You'll almost certainly do some variant of the spasming-tip-over at least once. Yeah.... it'll suck. Try to stay off...

    They need to HTFU. The American consumer über alles.

    I concur; I have two of them because one won't get me through my longer rides. I get in the realm of 2.5 hrs in bright-blink mode. I do like them a lot though. Bought my friend one as a bike-warming...

    I turned 50 a few days ago, so my buddy and I rode a nice mixed-terrain 50 miles. I wasn't great physically- upper chest was really tight for some reason- but he's great company and it was gorgeous...

    Traveling at a constant rate of speed is hypnotic, that plus the ol' conservation of momentum law puts drivers in this strange head space where to (gasp!) move their wittle footsie over a couple...

    Right?! At 41 mph all I need is a fog line at the very edge of the blacktop, and I'll ride that line.

    Well played.

    Let your over-analyzer do it's thing but in the end, trust a different organ: your heart. If it feels good, it is good.

    A shoulder is not a bike lane. It can be used as one, sometimes, but the thing is, you just cannot count on a shoulder the way you can a bike lane. In my AO, the shoulder can go from being a de facto...

    GP 4000s are pretty sweet. I intend to try other good ones but the GP's are wearing well and riding nice.

    A buddy and I kinda faked each other out. Before the ride we were both whining about how we felt, preparing the other guy for a "light" ride... which appears to have fueled the contrarian in both of...

    Good, bright, front and rear blinkers.

    Fredly? Nah. An indicator of a cyclist operating on a higher plane? Yah.
