    Lantiseptic???

    At a recent meeting my bike club had a guest speaker who's an ultra-distance rider. Among others, he's ridden several 24-hour and 300+ mile events. One of his recommendations was a product called...

    Going through a woman's "change of life" has blessed/cursed me with hot flashes. While I dread the summer, winter brings welcome relief. I'm up in the northern reaches of Illinois and am outside...

    I got chocolates, earrings, a dozen roses, and ... oh yes ... a new Cervelo S2. :love:

    True, it was a 2012 closeout, but hubby decided it was time to upgrade my Fuji starter bike.

    Any bent/upright switch hitters out there?

    Started cycling a few years ago, and since seeing my first recumbents have become increasingly intrigued. I'm in the very baby stages of educating myself and am hoping for a little help with a few...

    Both my husband and I like the videos from the Sufferfest website. He's a casual rider and I'm more serious, but they work for both of us because they use a scale of "perceived effort". The music is...

    I think that my low so far was the Tour de Frost, a ride for charity. Rode 28 miles. Temp at the start was 10'F, rising to 14'F at the finish. Rode my MTB and wore what I use for snowshoeing.

  15. Your take on "marathon type exercise is bad for you"?

    I read this thread this morning and wondered how running a marathon compares to riding long distance. I love riding centuries and would hate to think that I'm killing myself in the process. I'm not a...

    Rode the Harmon 100 yesterday and came off the bike feeling pretty beat up, so I'm trying to analyze what the heck happened. I'm not a newbie. Rode it and four other centuries last summer, and it was...
