    Your rhabdomyolysis could have resulted from a lack of hydration. Whatever the reason, it's caused by the breakdown of muscle tissue. That breakdown can occur from extreme heat, and/or when your body...

    Congrats! I've made the ride once, about 6 years ago. That last pitch almost seems unfair. As I recall, I rode with a seriously low gear for that part of the ride.

    If you want an awesome uphill ride, take a loop through the Irish Hills.

    At 65, my cardiologist informed me that my self-reported 182 max heart rate wasn't possible. He allowed that it was, after I mentioned I use a heart rate monitor.
