    Do you ride errands when you are bone tired?

    I try to organize my errands so I do a little each day, not too much in the way of recreational rides, so I get everything I need without needing a drive from anyone.

    This week I'm trying to get...

    I wonder if this is much out of line with other Canadian cities. My old hometown of St John's NL always had a large number of people who simply walked everywhere. Taxis were abundant and reasonably...

    Yeah, me too. I have too many bikes to outfit a computer on each. Mostly I travel the same routes. I know the mileage, so it's easy to figure out. I guess my estimates are a bit of a swag, but I'm...

    If you are opposed to throwaway alcohol wipes, you can always bring an old-fashioned facecloth. Get it damp with cold water. It cools you down quickly.

    Yesterday did a short ride to the health food store. Felt tired after, so I called this my rest day. Today headed off to the lake north of the city.

    Most thinking people would chose a house close to amenities... even if they used the car extensively. Unfortunately many are forced to settle for less than ideal suburbs that meet their price range.

    It's pathetic that so few students ride. You can really notice how traffic is diminished throughout my city when school closes. Sad to think so many students miss out on all this fun.

    I was on the road 11 hours yesterday. Started out on a recreational ride with some friends, then ended it with a downtown meeting. Did about 40-50 miles... lots of fuel stops.

    That contrasts with Des Moines in that there are a lot of bike paths and some lanes. The MUPs act as a stepping stone into urban cycling... at least for many cyclists.

    So do Canadians have more public transit options? I certainly notice this coming to the Mid West where public transit is pretty sparse.

    We talk a lot hear about carfree issues, but seems to me most of the issues are south of your border.

    Ouch! I need some chamois cream. And a chamois.

    I've done a couple of weeks of 250 miles. But it really took the wind out of my sails.
