    Thanks for keeping us young and cutting edge--I had to look this up, but agree it is an apt descriptor of my post.

    I went in for a pretty extensive bio metric screening with a cycling coach a few months age (long story). At the end, he suggested that I needed to up my fat intake, and used as examples avocados and...

    Beic's story got me thinking.

    In the five years since we started riding again, I've been hit by cars and twice crashed hard on my own. My wife's worst accident has been tipping over into gorse...

    The doc who fixed my broken femur-hip a few years back knew, without my saying so, that I wanted a partner in constructing a safe but aggressive rehab plan. He wasn't a rider himself, but definitely...

    6100 miles counting trainer time (I know, that's debatable to many), but this year it means most of my July, which I have spent nursing broken ribs and missing out on a number of scheduled centuries.

    On the road side, the Bontrager Velocis has a BOA adjustment and comes in a wide version. Three weeks in, it's been very comfortable.

    Great, great post!

    Yesterday we hiked on a trail that overlooked one of the epic climbs on the front range, one that I have done countless times, and she has done once (her goal from the summer...

    My wife rides with me 4 to 6 times a month, from March to October, with distances ranging from 15 to 50 miles a pop. It will be more often if I am rehabbing from a crash (so she can keep her eye on...

    At 58, I top out at 160 based on testing. I pretty much turned myself inside out, and thought the number would be much higher. Nevertheless, the output I was producing for vo2 max and ftp watts/kg...

    You've got to blame somebody, right?

    Again, thanks to all.

    Wanderer: if you or your bud would be kind enough to snap and post some pictures of the setup, here and/or in the adaptive forum, it...

    I'm glad some others have chimed in on the comments about group riding, so hopefully this does not sound too defensive.

    The group I was riding with did indeed slow and space out for the tracks,...

    A bunch of good ideas here, and I plan to try a few when I'm back in the saddle. Thanks to all.

    Thanks OC. You must have talked to my wife. Even with 18k miles between falls, I'm thinking twice us enough for these old bones.

    Thanks, Bill.

    As to the most important question, I'm taking her in today for a thorough check, but she appears to be ok except for a bottle cage and some bar tape.

    Thanks for the good advice on the technique.

    In hindsight, I agree with you on the ride. I was pretty thoroughly checked out in the med tent right after the fall, before the breathing was too much...
  16. Jinxed (and in need of some bike handling advice)

    For the second time in two tries, a member of the group I was riding with in the MS 150 went down hard. Last year it was an uneven expansion joint on a bridge. This year it was railroad tracks. Last...

    As a much younger man, I crashed on consecutive days in training runs for a downhill ski race at 70 mph plus. Walked away from both. Sixty on skis feels fast but still doable and even fun at times....

    +1 I have a mileage and effort goal for pretty much every solo ride, even if it's a commute, and all of them have stretch options. Most of those rides involve a nonscientific version of...
