    +1. MapMyRide, or RideWithGPS (I prefer the later) for route planning, Strava for ride tracking.

    I traveled to China a few years back. There is a stereotype that the Chinese are horrible drivers, but I noticed something that sets that notion on it's ear, and puts perspective on drivers over...

    I'm just a kid, a full ten years younger than you. I go through stages on ride a that go from "What the hell am I doing?" to "I want to quit" to "This isn't so bad" to What was I worried about". ...

    Yes. Using tools like MapMyRide or RideWithGPS (I prefer the latter YMMV) is very helpful in finding safer routes, though not perfect. I recently started a commute where RWGPS got me close, but...

    This was her second trip up there. I did manage to get it cleanish after the first. This was a bit of a challenge getting around all of the purple fur she had glued to the frame. It was...

    My step daughter took the bike my wife got, and never rides, and "fixed it up" for a trip to Burning Man"

    I have searched for what I call the "Goldilocks Group". The nearest group ride to me advertises Advanced Intermediate and Beginner rides. The intermediate ride is as fast as the advanced, but about...

    Nearly 60 yo., two cardiac stents, been cycling seriously about eight years. I did a 20k tt at just under 20. This was the slowest time in my age group as the other five riders were at 22-24. My...
