    How many miles the day before that? And the day before that, and so on? A 50 mile ride out of the blue is too much for almost anybody. Once you can do 50 miles, doing 50 miles back to back becomes...

    If you're not balancing your diet to include fresh vegetables and fruit then you're missing important nutrients for maintaining your overall health. That may not be a rich set of calories. But for...

    I just went down from a 26 to a 24 chain ring in the front. My biggest cog is a 34.

    I'm going to just hope for the best. I'm not too worried about it. If it were a normal tour and an undoable...
  5. I'm not sure I understand you. I have a lot more...

    I'm not sure I understand you. I have a lot more concern for whether bicyclists vs. motorists are unnecessarily viewed as a nuisance. The negative attitude towards bicyclists has a bigger...
  6. Is it possible to predict what gear inches you'll want for a given grade of hill?

    For example, you see that a hill is 15% grade. You know that your lowest gear is 19". You weigh 150 lbs. and your loaded bicycle is 100 lbs.

    Do you think "piece of cake" or "OMG"?

    How do you...

    Interesting perspective LeeG.

    When I go on tour a frequent pattern shows. The first day I feel pretty strong but have spikes of over exertion as I awkwardly settle into the difference from my...

    That's interesting in concept. You do also need to consider that the tire absorbing the bump, itself requires energy. In that case it is energy is consumed by flexing the rubber of the tire instead...

    It would be interesting to figure out what the impact would be, if the only people driving in the city were disabled people or people with heavy bulk items. I'd venture to say, a truly dramatic...

    No. It's also possible that a violent conflict happens first. Or more likely, that you've contributed a little bit more to the lasting impression that bicyle riders are a-holes that don't deserve...

    In other words, let your freak flag fly right? If you're going to flip a bird, at least do it well. :)
  12. My experience is not quite so dire. I consume...

    My experience is not quite so dire. I consume food here and there without knowing about the GMO factor. But what I eat in my daily routine, I do. Most of the soy I get comes from the (1 cup) of...

    I agree with the people that say the fasted energy boost comes from consuming simple sugars. That does NOT mean that's "good for you". It's much better to plan ahead and eat right the day before. I...

    I also like helping a little to instill similar feelings in children today. If I see a child riding with training wheels, I comment on what a cool looking bicycle they've got and sometimes see an...

    Get a grip dude. My man parts are healthy if not damn frisky. I'll continue to base my nutritional practices on multiple correlated studies over the last 30 years instead of isolated comments from...

    I eat soy every day. I also eat beans, rice, lentils, etc. I would hardly say my diet is "based" around it. More than anything else my diet is based around fresh vegetables, fruit, nuts, oats. I...

    It's been a staple since the earliest days of human history in some parts of the world. And probably my primary source of protein on a daily basis for over 40 years. Webmd has nothing but good stuff...

    Good point Dave. *Some* of the organic matter that turned into fossils could have instead become our "fossil fuel". But *none* of the organic material that really did become our fuel followed that...

    That depends on how cautious and attentive you are. A light gives you only one thing to look at. Personally, I prefer just watching out for myself. And I would never go just because the light is...

    Agree. The strongest incentive for people to go careless is to make that a more practical and pleasant experience. That's also one of the more expensive things that we as a society might take on....

    And of course people keep having babies in a world where death by natural selection is far more rare than population control by that means can be managed. Humans have outsmarted their genes and will...

    i do hope that my example might inspire at least some people to drive a little less. They might see that it's not so hard, more pleasant, and more interesting. But I'll try to stop there. If I adopt...

    I get it. Life itself is so temporary, why waste it fretting over what other people are doing? Enjoy a slice of the world while we can. Before long I'll just be dust in the wind and worrying about...

    :)

    Very cool! I can so identify with everything you say. More power to you.

    Enjoy cycling! Fun, strengthening (mental and physical), nearly free. I used to compute by car and I hated it....

    In the truly grand scheme of things even human beings are insignificant. Just a tiny blip on the radar. But I may not outlive the internal combustion engine, so it has a really big impact on my...
