    At least 95 % solo riding here. I used to commute to work until my company moved too far north for that. Now I get home, catch up with my girlfriend for a while, go out and ride, and come home and...

    Imagine if it was an all day every day thing, and not a one time protest!

    Last summer my car got totaled. Traffic was stopped for half a mile, I was stopped with it, the guy behind me had some important texts. Hit me hard enough to push my car into the one ahead of me. ...
  5. I think if you did something like that (on a...

    I think if you did something like that (on a trainer) the rider wouldn't be able to tell which is which. And that's my point, I don't think road pedals are inherently better. Unless you need a...

    He may well have saved him from being abducted by aliens and probed. We'll just never know. But don't let that stop anyone from speculating.

    ^ "It feels fresher on the next climb" = you put out more watts on the next climb. If you didn't recover (coast or soft pedal), you wouldn't be able to put out as many watts on the next effort.

    I've never had trouble with the touch screen in my Edge. You almost never have to touch anything very small; you can swipe your finger across the screen to change pages instead of hitting the...

    In practice, I can't feel the difference you're talking about. If you set up a double blind test, with cyclists on a trainer, I'm pretty sure almost on one could. Assuming we're talking about a...

    I used mountain bike pedals (SPDs, A-520) for more than half a decade. This year I switched to road pedals (Look Keo) because I had to in order to use the power meter I chose (Garmin Vector). I've...

    My phone (an $80 LG Tribute smart phone) took a ~5 foot fall in my garden onto a tile walkway. The case broke open and the battery fell out, but all of that went back together without a hitch. ...

    I just read the second one, too. You're right, it's basically the same content but the map is very cool!

    Amazing (to me) that Oregon is ranked as less flat than Washington. Our mountains are...

    I used Map My Ride briefly at the beginning of the year (long story) and agree 100 %, in fact this is the reason I stopped using it.

    Between the two I'd choose Strava and go with the free...

    The battery should lose capacity as it ages, but I've also heard they have a break in period and it takes several charge cycles before it reaches full capacity. I don't know.

    I'd bet it's not...

    It's funny how topography can completely change your approach to cycling.

    There's a hill about 500 yards from my front door, it gains a few hundred feet over about 2/3 mile. One day a week I do...

    Didn't read the other one, but this was a lot more interesting than I expected. Nice pics, too.

    Awesome!! I like #2 a lot, the lighting, fog, solitude, and composition all add up to a creepy atmosphere.

    Your 1000 with an HRM should get you within 7 % of the golden truth in terms of calorie burn from a ride. According to one of those power meter guys (forget which one) calories from kJ should get...

    I'm not a Strava member (love their heat map though!) but I've created a handful of Garmin Connect segments. My data winds up there anyway with no effort on my part, and the segments let me know...

    They've got to be uploading their data to Strava, and it has to be good data. Garmin units can save a point every second, or the computer can decide when to save a point to show a significant change...

    On the other hand, Critical Mass has done less to harm every day cyclists than a lot of the ideas that get play in A&S.

    I'm not even on Strava and I use the heat map to find bike routes. It's a great tool.

    That's a great route, really lovely, some great parks (I hope you went through Gas Works?) and the Ship Canal is surprisingly quiet. I do a loop that includes Lake Union and the Ship Canal Trail a...
