    I had a glitch earlier this year riding in the basement where I forgot to reset the counter from the previous day's ride. It listed my ride as being about 24 hours long and assumed my HR was the...

    I have a bad habit of doing product research AFTER I submit an order (post decision justification). There are several generations of eneloop batteries. The 3rd / 4th generation perform similarly...

    I ordered 2 packs of 8 from Dell in Canada for $38 + tax which was half their regular price. Dell's US site doesn't appear to sell them but I see them on amazon.com for $25 for 8, might be cheaper...

    I kind of like that it takes AA batteries, as additional lithium packs can be very expensive. Its a shame more lights aren't like the Lezyne ones that use relatively inexpensive 18650 cells. I...

    Nice, I was waiting for a refresh on these lights as it seemed like they used the same emitters for 3+ years in a row. The regular IXON IQ has gone up from 30 to 50 lux and the Premium 80 lux. ...

    I discovered that RideWithGPS now allows you to build routes based on OpenStreetMap. The last time I tried this, it displayed the OSM map but routed based on Google Maps, so I couldn't route along...

    One thing that is important for routing is that roads don't simple cross each other but they are connected. In the past few weeks I also came across a few roads where people tried to trace numerous...

    My OpenStreetMap Experience

    Rather than buying the Garmin maps for my Edge 800, I decided to give OSM a try. You just need a micro SD card to put them on. The Garmin 800 connects to computer as a USB 1 device so file...

    My Garmin 800 lasted 13:20 on 320km ride but I was cutting it close. Next time I'll take my external battery pack to top it up.

    The stuff has to go on in a certain order so I occasionally have problems if I'm sleepy.

    First an open face balaclava pulling below my chin, then a respirator to keep my glasses from fogging up,...

    I gotta get myself a straw so I can drink while I'm out for a ride. Getting the mask off isn't too difficult, but getting it back on correctly can be a challenge.

    When I'm on the road I can average around 13 km/h on my fat bike, off road much less. Its a great way to get in shape, if I try sprinting for a light I can easily get my HR up to 180. One thing I...

    I'm constantly spitting and clearing nostrils during my winter rides. I don't think there is anything that can be done about it. Its a little more unpleasant on days like today as I was wearing my...

    I'm good immediately after a ride, but 10-15 minutes later I get the chills. My theory (since my stomach always gets cold) is that since the body diverts blood from digestion while excising, that...

    Ran into a slight hiccup with my Moonlander setup. Its great that you can use lots of standard components with Surly's offset frames, but when using spacers to center a normal mtb rack it becomes...

    Got some snow today and I was very slow. It will take a few rides to adjust to the bike.

    The carbide studs in the tires I used on my Trek 520 are holding up very well. I've done a lot of bare pavement riding on them as I'll sometimes ride out of the ice covered roads in town to enjoy...

    Typical road conditions are important to consider when picking a tire. When I had a long way to ride on roads plowed to pavement my 700x35 set were my go to tires. Narrow is also great for slush...

    We get a little bit tomorrow, but it will be difficult to appreciate with the 50-70 km/h winds. Checking my cycling log our first big lasting snowfall was Nov 9th last year, the 6th the year before,...
