    I very much enjoy my Garmin 500. I use Strava, and also, because I'm too old to trust "the cloud" I use Ascent, a mac based program.

    Interesting. Tricia (MyLilPony when she posts on BF) and I ride together a lot.

    Heck yes. I've heard that there is no reason to train beyond 60 miles. I don't know if I buy that, but it does make a little sense.

    Nice painting. I usually don't like bicycle "art" as it's so often cheesey, but this works for me!

    I'm no expert on the area, but the ride up Mines is a very popular cycling route. I'd call traffic light. You get motorcycles and a few horse trailers, but not a ton.

    I hate to admit it, but it's a 12-30. I don't really need it for Solvang, but I really like having that low gear in general.
