    This is true, but I don't think you understand why.

    Group riders are quite at liberty to decide who should and shouldn't ride with them. Among them is if a rider is no good at maintaining steady...

    And that was the You Would Have to Be Crazy ride... which means we probably were certified and locked up after that for almost four years!

    I really admire people have an idea and see it through. Whether it looks great or not, or even works doesn't really matter, because they have had a go.

    From what I can see, great job, corrado!

    I like to claim a little connection to both Simon Gerrans and Richie Porte.

    Gerrans hails from a tiny little town, Jamieson, about 40km from where I used to live in Victoria. He and I share the...

    I really like Vancouver Island for all sorts of reasons including the cycling. I was very impressed by the cycling culture in Victoria.

    It is all relative. But that doesn't mean riding centuries on consecutive days should be dismissed. In the broader context, few people in the general population can actually ride a century, much...

    In the context of real long-distance riding, nothing special.

    I have just been through the exercise as an employer of hiring people to work on a remote-ish property, and frankly, it was a bear trying to organise people who didn't have vehicles.

    You forget about international travellers who land in the US wanting to rent a vehicle. Their vehicle insurance in their home country doesn't apply in the US or any other country, for that matter.

    Even an imperial century is possible without eating food, just taking in water. I did that... once. Just to see if could be done.

    Maybe do a search on boiling the saddle. Yep. Boiling. I think it was in the Touring forum, and posted by a well-known and respected BF member. It would help reform the shape of the saddle.
