    Having a mountain triple and 11-34 cassette helps me. I'll still occasionally get off and push my bike up a hill if I'm just not feeling that day. Feels good to get off the bike and walk for a minute...

    This is why I usually ride by myself 90% of the time. Unless you race I don't understand why some are so concerned with speed. I'm just thankful to be outside on my bicycle enjoying nature. I...

    About 1.5 hours each way. I only ride one way each day though. 3 hours a day was just too much for me. I alternate with my motorcycle.

    Much cooler and less humid this morning. Really enjoyed it. I even broke out a light jacket. Of course I warmed up and it got a little too warm in the jacket.

    Tight bike shorts are even worse than tight tops. The benefits of tight shorts with padded crotches matter only to racers and mega-milers. For anybody else, and for recreational rides, even vigorous...

    I try not to think about it, but we had a local cyclist killed here this past weekend. Driver was drunk and high. He could have killed anyone though. Not just a cyclist.

    37s for my 15 mile rural commute. I like the ride of a thicker tire. Roads can get rough around here and I occasionally like to ride some gravel on the way home. I wouldn't trade comfort for speed.

    I could have worn shorts it was so warm out. This was one of those days that makes me glad I'm a bike commuter. Hard to believe it was below zero last week.
