    Still respectable. We accommodated slower riders for the first 25 minutes, we had to get back up to speed at lots of intersections. At least, it is respectable TO ME! :)

    We just came to an agreement on that. At the start of a ride I will text her "riding" and be considered incommunicado except for emergencies, End of ride or meal stop I will text "not riding."

    Never have, never will. MHR way above the silly formula.

    Cement mixers should be banned from urban traffic because they are too slow to accelerate when a light turns green and they hold up everyone behind them.

    If you have to move bike and rider from elevation "A" up to elevation "B" you are moving total of weight of bike, rider and accessories from "A"a to "B." The total is all that matters.

    People tell me that on a regular basis and can not understand how I can be comfortable in denim shorts. Yet that is what I always ride in and have gone as much as 115 miles in one day wearing them. ...

    HA!!! You don't know Bob like I know Bob. He is my good riding buddy when he is in Austin for the winter. He has too many nice old road bikes to count and is proud to have less than $100 in most...

    I know, silly analogy to say the least. State-sponsored genocide of the innocent and a well deserved parking fine are a little different.
