    I'm not so sure other people's opinions will really help on that one. I know recumbent riders that climb great, I know upright riders that have no problem with 8 hours on the bike. Do you have any...

    I know three people that have done the Texas version. Seems like turnout was pretty low, so it was just a half-dozen guys scattered out across there riding.

    With a 300k in 17 hours, that's fast...

    I have a Ford Ranger pickup, single-cab. With the front wheel off, the tandem fits diagonally in the bed, and I have one of those fork-clamps mounted at the appropriate angle near the tailgate.

    A lesson learned a week or two ago: We were riding urban bike trails using cue sheets. The problem was that the bike trail had numerous unmarked junctions and wyes. The cue sheet would say "Veer...

    Just to confuse the issue, I will point out that Shimano road pedals are also "SPD", as it says right there on the box "SPD-SL Pedals".

    I've done a couple of races where I planned how I was going to get lots of sleep right before starting, and it just wouldn't happen- get too busy or lie down and you're wide awake. With that in...

    I carry two plus a patch kit. On the tandem, a spare tire as well. For a multi-day event, have extra tubes in your off-bike luggage so you can re-stock if need be. If you're using flat-prone...

    From randonneuring experience:
    Standard correct answer: Follow a cue sheet
    What really happens a lot: Follow the herd because Pam up there has a GPS.
    OR, you've ridden that route 8 times before...

    Hard Centurying is overrated for us eaters.
    Maybe if you ride a century in 4 hours, you don't need anything, but if you take 8 hours, you're running past lunchtime before you're done. Or so I've...

    That pretty much sums it up. I know and ride with several recumbent riders. The recumbent bikes have pros and cons, and the people I know riding them were generally dealing with specific...

    Once or twice while hiking years ago, and once or twice while cycling, I've times where my foot just happened to hit the front of my shoe too often or too hard- bruised my nail, made it turn black,...

    You may find randonneuring in Oregon to be a lot different from Texas or New York, in terms of terrain, routes, etc. Just check into it and see. Fewer people, more hills, that kind of thing.

    I may have to try it next year. Looks like we've got two Texans headed that way, and I know one of them. Sounds like lots of people out for it.

    How you'd handle Dune Road is to put an information control in the middle of it. That only works if you just ride it one direction, you can't do that on an out and back. If it's absolutely...

    The routing and distance between controls will vary depending on where you are, how busy the roads are, etc. Generally, I look at it as putting controls where you can't short cut, rather than the...

    What with this being a zombie thread from 2009, no telling what's buried in those other 14 pages. So maybe I've posted this before. Relates to the original post, not the new posts immediately...

    Perhaps you misunderstand me. The consensus was that 13 people on a balcony wasn't an overload, it should have been good for that.

    I was seeing this discussed on an engineering forum as well, and the general consensus was that the balcony shouldn't have been overloaded with that number of people on it.

    Get a better seat if needed, get a pair or two of bike shorts, if you like them, get a couple more pairs, then you're set for a while.

    I guess it'd depend on the circumstances. In most cases, you'd probably be better off using solar cells.

    For me, I'd crank away at that bike and optimistically generate 200w of power. Meanwhile,...

    A loud whistle will help with a lot of dogs. Different riders here use storm whistles or referee's whistles. Won't work on all of them, but some, it'll stop in their tracks, some, it will kind of...

    Okay, here's an educational little video that actually involves bicycling in two different places. But more importantly, I see it as a parallel to RAAM- specifically, the part at 4:25, "I will dive...

    On typical longer rides, we stop about every 30 miles. I eat whatever sounds good at the time. That may include breakfast sandwiches, fast food, cookies, you name it. Later in a ride, different...

    If the RAAM record was 30 days or so, it might appeal to me. But it seems to be not just a matter of who is fastest, but who is willing to get the least sleep and suffer the most, and that's not me.

    Check with the larger bike shops in the area. Is there a tandem shop in that area as well?
