    I've found the best way to cool down fast and stop sweating after a ride is rubbing alcohol. I keep a bottle in my locker at work, but I don't know how you'd manage it at a bar or restaurant.

    The one and only spin class I ever did I almost broke my legs because I had such a bad habit of coasting on my bicycle. Can't do that on a spin bike!

    Yup. Every year around Feb-March the hospital where I work sees an uptick in the number of cholecystitis cases as people who went balls-to-the-wall with their New Year's weight-loss resolution lose...

    I used to get asked lots of questions and have total strangers come up to shoot the breeze with me, but it's gnat and mosquito season now. Mostly I just get funny looks, what with my bug net and all.

    Runkeeper has something called "LiveTrack" but I've never turned it on. I'd assume it does something like that.

    I of course have lots of other reasons, most of which have been said by other people - feeling more connected to the change of seasons, exercise, reducing my impact on the Earth, etc. But that...

    I noticed this as well when I mounted my headlight to the top of my helmet. What's funny is I had a Contour mounted on the side of my helmet for quite awhile before this, but nobody ever noticed it,...

    +1. Or make it into a bun. I used to use LA Looks Maximum Hold Sport Strength hair gel on my bun, and my hair was never out of place, no matter how windy/hot/rainy the ride was.

    For me, the 20 minute ride to the gym and the 40 minute ride to the pool is my warmup. I don't have to waste time farting around once I get there, I just plunge in to my work out.

    When people ask me why I ride to work, I always ask them, "If you could fish/golf/play poker/insert-hobby-here to work, wouldn't you?"

    Ethanol = C2H5OH, which is pure alcohol, and what's in alcoholic beverages. (Unless you completely screw up your moonshine.) And sometimes people also put it in cars. But only someone who...

    There's a green heron that hangs out on the FRBP behind Bike Friday. I've only ever seen him when on foot, because he has such great camouflage.
