    I rode that section of PCH in early Dec. of '15 on the Dead of Winter Double Century. I remember being surprised that the roadway was very clean; no rocks or other debris. Guess it's just a matter...

    Ah . . . no. My phone I usually don't carry since it's lots heavier than my Starbucks card!

    If you have access to a fixed gear bike . . . just try it.

    Make sure it has brakes though (some do, some don’t) and go for a ride.

    Because it is “fixed” the flow of the pedal stroke is much...

    I sold my trainer (Turbo-Trainer) when I moved from St.Louis out here to SoCal 20 years ago. Here we can ride all year round so no worries.

    Plus, Eggbeaters can be clipped into from 4 different "edges" per pedal making them easy to clip into! Pretty easy to un-clip too.

    As far as I know you can cheat all you want on your birthday ride! No one is keeping score so the only one you cheat is yourself. It's a simple case of mind over matter: If you don't mind, it...

    Honestly OldTryGuy, I would rather climb then fight headwinds, so you probably get in the same training value where you live. After that ride on Sat. I stayed off the bike and did yard work and...

    Good that you got out for a ride at least! We did too, a 61 mile loop and the only anxiety we had was due to looming rain clouds. In the end we had to ride through a slight mist and an occasional...

    If after work isn't practical why not get an early start and ride before work; even better, ride to work! That's what I do; usually on the road by 5:15 AM.

    I use flat pedals (no clips or straps) on my Hercules 3-Spd. which I use for grocery shopping (panniers front and rear) but on my other bikes I use clipless.

    Very nice set up Doug! Looks like it should work well for your tough climbs out there. Here the climbs tend to be longer and not as steep (with a few notable exceptions!) but your gearing would...
