    I would just do the regular commute at an easy pace each day, and not a weekend ride, unless your legs feel pretty fresh again by Friday. (They probably won't, but maybe you recover faster than I do...

    Well, I remember my father had a nice all-metal one on his 1976 Super Le Tour. I managed to break it by going too fast down a hill. As I recall, there was a maximum recommended speed. Maybe if the...

    I don't agree with this. I was mildly fit before starting my first TCC cycle and gained fitness, although it did generate a lot of fatigue. I'm doing the Intermediate Commuter program. I'm about...

    On the other hand, your derailleur can be adjusted perfectly, but go into the spokes if it gets damaged. Say you whack it on a curb or rock or something and don't realize it....

    I see them sometimes in nice weather in Springfield, MA. They're typically breaking the traffic laws (salmoning, running red lights). I could understand that if they were chasing someone, but when...
