    Sounds like you've been bitten hard by the cycling bug and want to put in some serious miles. If I understand your post you've only been riding a road bike for a week, so no surprises that your body...

    Congrats on your first century! Hope you get to enjoy many more. The great thing about cycling is - it is what you want it to be. Whether you're into racing, fast rides, or go at a more casual...

    Snide remarks??? I thought I was being polite and concise. What triggered my response (#31) - you implied that its the responsibility of the rider up front to know what's behind them, who it is,...

    You missed the whole point the OP was trying to make. He was doing a Zone 2 ride, which means he was going relatively slow to keep HR and power down. He suddenly realized someone latched on his...

    It's great when that happens. But more often its - ride into a stiff headwind looking forward to a fast ride back, then the wind shifts and the tailwind return is gone.

    I agree with others that...

    Remember, the OP stated that he was doing a Zone 2 ride, so most riders making a moderate effort should be able to chase down his wheel and catch on. This may be an easy ride for the OP, but a new...

    It's a big deal if the cyclist runs into your derailleur, takes you down and you spend several days in the hospital with outrageous bills, missed work and a destroyed bike. Yeah, not likely, but it...

    Expensive is a relative term and depends on your disposable income. $5,000 might be expensive to one, while $2,000 might be to the another on a limited income. As usual, the answer is..... it...

    OP - If you're riding in Zone 2 and were intending to keep your HR or FTP in this zone, it can be very annoying when someone latches onto your wheel. I have a tendency to ramp it up to have a little...

    This is also what I do when we go out together once a week. There's plenty of good suggestions above to get a good workout while riding with the wife at this easier pace, but mine doesn't mind me...

    Did you actually read the previous posts? I stated that the OP would be faster with adding additional miles and training, but certainly not pro level. The following posted expanded on this thought.

    I think our only opportunity to stay with any of the pros is if they are doing an easy recovery ride.

    There's a direct correlation to the amount of time and effort put into training with your...

    Yes - 3-wheeled, thanks for clarifying. And I agree about the 2 wheeled bents. I frequently see them sustain 25+mph on the flats.

    Combined with a strong motor that bike looks fast. Very similar to several that I see locally and they are also very strong and fast. Again, in my experience, I rarely see any tri-bikes in my area...
