  1. Best Social Media for Organizing Casual Rides

    I'm part of a club that has always had weekly casual rides. And by that I mean they are somewhat subject to weather conditions, availability of people, holidays, etc. We have been contacting members...

    Everyone works differently, but my suggestion is to try and build a job-seeking process that allows for plenty of riding. Riding is a good thing to do after making a daily round of follow-up calls,...

    I realize the OP said no to a fat bike, but it wasn't a totally firm no . . . I find that my Moonlander is brilliant at riding the rutted, frozen MUP that I frequent. The rut edges provide enough...

    This latest snow was different, or at least the version of it that fell in central Illinois. The starting temps were so high that there was a layer of moist snowy slush on the pavement, and we...

    I have the Alp-X and love them for errands and touring. I sometimes forget they're clipless after a short while walking in them. I've had mine all season (nine months, I believe?) with no durability...

    Underground Railway route is a very intriguing idea. I think I may have flip-flopped 180 degrees. As I looked into train access and airfare costs this last minute trip seemed less and less appealing....

    Thanks for the help everyone! As always, I am amazed at the power of this resource.

    Thanks Tarwheel. I confess I was ignorant of how low the temps got in the South. As I'm doing more research I'm amazed, and you're confirming what I'm reading. My father lives in Plant City, FL and...
  9. Looking for a warmish one week tour route in the southern US

    I realize I'm probably being lazy, but I just learned that I'll have Christmas through New Year's free. I want to ride! My native Illinois is inhospitable to touring more than a day or two, so I want...

    I ride year 'round, every day. Last winter I wanted to wear fingered gloves all through the season and found a pair of Marmot ski gloves. $60 at Dicks. I found them to work very well. I never...

    Since no one has mentioned Gore Bike I will. I have reluctantly reached the conclusion that you get what you pay for in bike clothing, at least when it comes to breathability. I have a J&G jacket, a...

    I know this is an impolite question but I'm genuinely curious: can I ask how much the coach cost and how did you find him/her? This all sounds intriguing to me. Thanks in advance if you're...

    Everyone is different in their tolerance to cold. I, too, hate cold ears. I use three levels of protection. Below 55 degrees F. I wear a microfiber headband that stops wind. Below 45 degrees I use a...

    Actually I do have PN, but it's in my hands, not my feet! However, I do have some recommendations for your feet. I highly recommend Pearl Izumi X-Alp Drift II shoes. I ride them clipped to Shimano...

    Kebbs — in a word: yes, you can tour on your Zipp.
    Much of what is discussed (ad nauseam) on this forum are ways to refine elements to the nth degree for maximum efficiency or comfort or whatever...

    My experience with a Cane Creek Thudbuster was negative. I think they are well-made and the theory makes sense, but I ended up selling mine. I found that the suspension "bounce" was jarring. If...

    I have to speak up in defense of seemingly unfriendly cyclists.

    For years people have told me they saw me on my bike and honked, and were miffed when I didn't wave back.
    I'm sure they're right,...
