    Actually, CA law requires bicycles take the lane on a road such as this. What's funny is that I ride out there pretty regularly, and have found drivers to be nothing but patient and courteous....

    This. I was inches from being a skid mark the other day. Except I knew that the road I was on has traffic that is always 10 - 15 mph above the posted limit, so I decided against taking the lane at...

    I've actually started doing some brevets with PCH. They are great. It's probably been in the last 2 years that things have slowed up around here. I know that in 2011, we almost didn't have a series....
  6. What are the rules for running a series if you are not the RBA?

    Over the past couple years my local group has been somewhat stagnant, doing the same routes for our spring series every year. The RBA has been unresponsive to requests for volunteering and work on...

    Hutchinson makes a 32x650b tire that is supposedly a high quality, durable, and at a good price point. AFAIK, 32mm is the narrowest 650b tires go. Also, you still won't have a high pressure tire. If...

    There is no shoulder or bike lane, so by law the cyclists are allowed take the lane. Regardless, my experiences using the NCTD system tell me the bus just didn't care. Ever since they outsourced the...

    Hmm. No surprise there. I never go through the base anyhow. I find using I5 to be safer and easier. Just bring an earplug for the noise and you'll be fine.

    About a year ago I switched from Sidi to Northwave shoes. Every problem I've had with my feet disappeared. After my last 600k, my feet were the only part of me that wasn't sore or tired in some way.

    Nice shot. I should have done thee same, I was in just that exact spot a few weeks ago. Central Coast has some nice riding, especially inland. Carmel Valley Road is great, and Hwy 25/Peach...

    I think a couple people slit off to go home. The group I was with was Saturday regular riders, it was a last minute decision to do the long ride and we started separate. I think all the regular long...

    Just about any indie place. There's tons of them on the coast. Cafe Elysa in Carlsbad is great. Cafe Positano in RSF is a gem. The espresso is wonderful. I tiny place, it can get busy, but friendly....

    The Atom appears to be incapable of powering my front headlight. That, and it's complex and requires a usb connection, which no decent headlight that I know of has. I can see it being something a...

    No, it was somewhere in Del Mar I think, maybe just before the 56 bike path. A van parked on a dirt area next to the road, and three guys with TdC shirts, a table, some chairs. They were standing out...

    We came across a bunch of you guys Saturday morning. Even got cheered on by a very oddly placed sag stop. They probably would have looked at us different if they new we were riding 8x the distance...

    The entire Shimano road triple system is a stupid design. The front derailleur is designed to work with only one combination of chain rings, which isn't a good combination to begin with. If you want...

    Sounds fun, but I'm busy that morning. Plus, I think I've outgrown this sort of thing. If it was a week earlier, I'd probably run into it, as a large portion of the 100 mile route overlaps the 600k...

    Good point. When you crash a carbon wonder bike, you don't take it in to get the fork realigned, you take it in to get a new fork. I blame mountain bikes and X-games for the guys with too metal in...

    Have you asked any of your local shops if they can do this? Maybe it's just me, but any shop that cannot do this should not be in business. It's like being told the mechanic can only true them your...
