    My mother didn't get her license until she was in her mid 20s, when she had her first born. Even after getting her license she would commute by bike though she hasn't rode much in the past decade...

    Not a comfort hybrid but a heavy urban hybrid with 700x35 stock tires filled to about 85PSI and I seem to average between 13-14 MPH rolling speed even though when I glance down at the cyclometer it...

    I'd rather sweat than freeze, so I have no issues riding in the heat. The key is to stay hydrated, a problem I've had in the past. Now I carry two bottles on any rides over 25 miles (<2 hours). When...

    I seem to have been battling headwinds since I got back on the bike this year. Last night's ride seemed to be the worst, 18 MPH cross winds which meant I had wind coming and going, with gusts up to...

    At 5' 9" I've been plateaued at around 170-lbs since last fall. The biking and "smart" eating has really helped me get from my barely clyde status (230) to this number but I'm far from done now. I'd...

    Any coffee drinking commuters here?

    I have a 25 mile commute one way, and I love my morning coffee. I was wondering if there's a bottle/cup holder made for a bike that will fit a ordinary thermos (at minimum 20-24 ounces) of HOT...

    I don't ride well with others. Usually I find other riders to be either slower or much faster than me. The faster ones are usually the ones who ride competitively as if every ride was a race, but...
