    Thanks, that sounds perfect! We'll be staying in Morro Bay for a few days, so fairly easy to just hop on hwy 1. Fairly safe for cyclists on that road?
  4. Favorite routes around Santa Barbara/San Luis Obispo?

    In the eyes of most drivers in SE Michigan, riding a bicycle in the road means you're less than human. It's not uncommon for somebody driving in the opposite direction, 2+ lanes away, to lay on their...

    There's a perfect route right near my apartment that's just about 20K. If I want to just get in a quick ride, or a nice recovery roll, that's what I'll do: http://www.strava.com/activities/71659977

    Excellent write-up. Not surprised that the last corner took out a few guys. As I was rolling back to the start line in the wheel truck, the official mentioned that it was something like a 150-degree...

    The wheels I had built up. DT Swiss RR465s laced to Ultegra hubs. Bomb-proof, and they absolutely saved me during a major test this past weekend at a dirt/gravel/road race.
