    I know at least a few local businesses who sponsor teams who are almost certainly seeing a ROI. One is a local realtor who's also a team member (I think now a second team member joined his office as...

    If you've ridden a lot in the past you'll probably be able to tell how a bike is going to ride in the long run with just a couple miles of test ride. I was road bike shopping about a year and a half...

    The Forest Service site has posted the road closure on their page (10 am July 3 through 10 am July 7) but it doesn't say open to bikes. We called and they explicitly said that it is open to cyclists...

    Big climbs

    Start at Encanto--go to Dawson--then down to the East fork, up Little GMR, to the Village or the ski lifts, and then down GMR back to Encanto.
    Without the ski lifts, it's 118 miles/19k climbing....

    And bring a printed copy of the notice on the front page of the ANF web site that says it's closed to motor traffic, but open to cyclists. Not everyone (even in the forest service) who patrols the...

    This is my experience with chaperoning, too. They told the chaperones the places just before or during the race.

    You should be able to carry enough to make it to Newcomb's if you're coming up the 2, with or without the Upper Big T loop. If you do Upper Big T, you will miss Red Box. Newcomb's is always open--I...

    It kind of surprised me. The way things have been going I would have been less surprised by "You have to do it on Eddy's bike, in the condition he left it."

    I don't think I've been to a velodrome in the US that didn't have rental bikes. They're not always the greatest bikes, but they'll work on the track that rents them. For beginners, I generally...

    One of those posts was from me. It's happened twice, several years apart, that we encountered police (once Forest Service LEO, once CHP) who told us the road was supposed to be closed to everyone,...

    Yesterday, May 11, the closed part of the 39 was 100% rideable. Some rocks but really not too bad. Saw more rocks on the way to Dawson than on 39.

    The chipseal on the 2 is much better than it was,...

    My GF and I both started racing during grad school. It's a good way to get away from the pressure of grad school, and you get instant results, unlike science research. We both stopped racing for a...

    501's stopped fitting around my calves a long time ago. I eventually had to switch to Levi's 560's.

    Yes, I like those. Much drafting, but I have to remember not to up the pace a teeny bit everytime I hit the front. Annoys the teammates.
