    52, and as I came around a wide curve, up came a truck in my lane. I could not jerk the bike to the side fast enough to get out of his way. I simply held my line and he jerked his wheel violently to...

    That's nothing but ignorant nonsense. It's equivalent to a woman that was molested apologizing for wearing a pretty skirt. If a drunk idiot hits a cyclist that is otherwise riding safely and sanely...

    I pay close attention. I can't have coffee and any major food in the hour before I go or I have real problems. If I'm only going on a short ride - 30mi or less I don't concern myself before or after....

    I don't know much about the adirondaks. I assume they are black bears. The only thing I'll add to this is that if you keep your tent spotlessly clean...no toothpaste...no smelly stuff...hair...

    I'm on statins now and my cardio meds have dramatically lowered my max hr. Now I'm back to where 140 is right about my tipping point for moving into anaerobic time. 157 is pretty close to the highest...

    I'm not a cardiologist. Maybe max hr doesn't change and it's all a matter of perception but I can say that the max hr that I could reach when pushing myself as hard as I could certainly changed....

    HR isn't fixed. As you exercise and your heart is strengthened it can beat faster. And since it's stronger it beats harder so your resting HR is slower. Huge over simplification but it's at least...
