    Temps in the 40's are actually quite nice. I'm still in shorts and wear a light jacket. Low forties may see me throw on some ear covers.

    I was already running late when I walked into the garage and noticed my rear tire was flat. I wasn't surprised. That tire had 3500 miles on it, and I've been considering replacing it since the 4th....

    Took today off voluntarily, meaning not weather induced, for the first time since Father's Day. Anyway, plan to commute again tomorrow through the rest of the week.

    Most of my rides are commutes because there is no way I could ride 3 hours a night any other way. Past few weekends, I've been getting up early to knock off the 50's on Sat and Sun before noon so as...

    For most people biking season is May through September. For the real diehard riders, it's New Years Day through New Years Eve. My season is roughly St Patty's day through Christmas.

    Per your three points:

    1. I ride as fast as I can, which is hopefully faster than yesterday or last month. In other words, I look to improve on my time for a given distance. If that is fast or...

    Same here. I ride the same 50-mile loop on my days off that I ride when I commute. I may change up now and then, but usually not.

    Over 2100 miles since May 1; probably 2500 total since March 1. Goal is ballpark 5,000 miles by Christmas when my season officially ends, but to get there I need to hit 4000-plus by the end of...

    I'm usually just outrunning a thunderstorm. Sounds like your race is much more daunting.

    Probably because it's better to buy a good normal helmet and attach a rear light to it. That's what I did, admittedly after seeing someone else with a rear light on the back of their helmet one day.

    It could be that all of us who struggle with weight are a wee bit unsympathetic to those who do not even put up a fight. I'd love to gorge on pizza, burgers, fries and ice cream and then go take a...

    The first 10% come off easy. The second 10% takes twice as long and requires extra effort: more attention to diet and exercise. The last 10% is a real challenge. In fact, I suggest not even worrying...

    Body fat percentage is the way to go. They measure chest, waist and hips, do some math, and voila! come up with a number. You want to be below 25%, IMO. Under 20% should be the target though.

    It's good to see a weight you absolutely do not want to reach and use it as motivation for weight loss. Congrats!

    Cycling will make you sweat, but the wind will evaporate it away if you are wearing the right clothes. Head sweat...
