I was recently struck from behind by a guy in a pickup truck, no major damage to me but there'll be an eight hundred dollar repair bill. It's a major PIA when people just flat out don't watch where...
That's why Almightee Gawd gave us pepper spray.
BINGO! When I said the same thing in this forum a few months back I was raked over the coals and accused of being "paranoid". Good luck!
I'm a dead ringer for Cary Grant but I won't post a photo. The insane jealousy I already have to live with is just about overwhelming!
If anybody has any information about this route please respond. I'd rather not have to ride through the Rocky Mountains any more than necessary.
I found this and it appears that one can ride on...
Ya got me there, however, I'm not planning any overseas bicycling tours.
That looks like a really sensible first aid pack. I'll copy it if you don't mind!
I'm pretty good at reading road signs, the gps stays home.
My guess is that you've developed the optimum screening technique!
I'm not sure but as time goes along I'm think'n it must've been "Howdy Stranger"! That beats the snot out of "I Pulled Into the Fill'n Station of Love and Ended Up At the Self Serve Pump"!
SPOT ON!! As a matter of fact, if nobody who KNOWS YOU didn't see it then it didn't happen!

When I strike out next May there'll be a big can of "OFF" in my handle bar pack. People have come down with Lyme disease here in California's central valley. It's rare but it happens.
I can't imagine pulling a half eaten sandwich out of a trash can, not knowing if the guy who ate the first half has/has not washed his hands after using the restroom anytime within the last thirty...
Yep, they know where the food is!
I'm think'n that with $3200/mo. retirement income I shouldn't have to worry about getting into my savings as long as I stay on the road. Does that sound reasonable?
When I took my Surly LHTD out for the first time I rode five miles and when I got home my legs were shaking so badly I could hardly stand up. That was last February. Today I ride FIFTY miles and...
Point well made. I'm wearing padded riding shorts and perhaps some expirimenting in that regard is called for.
Sent it back.
OMG!! I'm defeated!!
ww.schwalbetires.com/bike_tires/road_tires/marathon_mondial I'll have probably 3K miles on my Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires by the time I launch cross country in May so it'll be time to "retire". ...
UPDATE: So, after my second trip on the Kontac my arse was SO SORE I decided that saddle had to go back and I ordered a Selle Anatomica. HOWEVER, I'd already put the B67 back on my bike and so...
