    My first attempt at a century, just about a year ago, ended when I threw in the towel at mile eighty, and took a flat shortcut to the finish. I could see the next Cat4 hill from there and had...

    Point taken. I was obese and suffering chronic heart disease, so in a way I am safer riding the bike. I was of course talking about accident mortality rates. As far as how I die goes, I find dying...

    Way cool. I'll keep my seat bag, but good to know I have something that will possibly save me spending a CO2 Cart.

    One problem with citing things like that is that it is necessary to preface it with "lets assume for the sake of argument. . ." The the record show that my statement carries that caveat.

    A lot of talk and argument over the validity of this statistic over that. For me it comes down to this. It is not disputed that flying on a commercial airline is safer than driving. I doubt that...

    I hit 50 on a standard road bike. The only criteria I met was the excess fat. I believe you know the hill. I was coming down the north face of San Elijo/Twin Peaks. To my credit, I did get my fat...

    I start getting nervous at 35. I did 50 once. I was relaxed and hyper alert the whole time. It was fairly straight, wide, and had two traffic lanes in addition to a bike lane. I got out into the...

    One of the uninjured riders was someone high up in the Chargers organization. I suspect there is enough clout in that group that there will be charges.

    I am a mechanical engineer with a trade background. What you say is valid, but the helmet could be adapted by cutting vents with an abrasive wheel on a Dremel, and could be painted to make it lower...

    I took a look at your situation. Eight mile ride to SanBerdoo, or thirteen to Riverside. I am not familiar enough with either to make a recommendation. One thing to take into consideration is that...
