    Haleakala downhill

    I rode both up and down Haleakala a few years back. While going up was a challenge, the downhill was a little sketchy for me. I've done a bit of road riding, raced a little cyclocross, but nothing...

    The CT really is a nice option at the north end. But, I'll echo Moleman76 about either River Road or Riverview/Riverside road (aka Ebey Island). Living in Mukilteo, both of those are regular rides...

    +1. You'll be fine. just follow the masses on the ride - it's pretty flat. I wouldn't worry about the 'P' hill or the 'N' - both very do-able. I've only done this in one day, but some day i'll do...

    I hope to do this ride someday. One of the potential problems I see is the lack of sleep for several days in a row. Is it possible to do PBP at a reasonable pace and still get 4-6 hours of sleep...

    Nice ride!
    I did the ride last June and had great weather. IIRC I did it in about the same time with a standard crank & 12-25. At 8,000' I was really wishing for more gears (a 27 would have been...

    Not really a route from Wailea, the ride starts in Paia. From Wailea, you would have to ride across the valley thru Kihei, Kuhului, Paia, which would make for a long day. Although, You'd have the...

    Interesting, I'd never thought of the pressure on the webbing causing numbness. This was my first year doing rando rides and was one ride away from a full series. But I'd all but given up thoughts...

    I posted the name of the brake in the title (Avid Shorty 4) but not in the post details - sorry. They are center pull canti's.

    Avid Shorty 4 - cleaning pivot point

    Ok, so after yesterday's 'cross race, I needed to clean all the mud and grit from my brakes. So I disassembled them as far as I could by removing the brake from the post and the pads from the brake....

    I use those little green boxes that tube patches come in - pretty easy to pop the lid one handed, they probably dont hold as much as a mento tube.

    Nice ride! One day I hope to complete a multiple day ride like that.

    . Please elaborate? I did just that (fizik bar gel) for a recent double century. My pinky still tingles over a week later.

    Lots of options for 20-30 mile rides, with good hillwork. My favorite is to cruise right up the Island from Clinton to Deception Pass, so you could do Oak Harbor to Clinton and back on 525/Hiway 20....

    +1 on SE in the heat. On one double century (a very hot one) SE caused extreme GI distress and gas to the point where I had to stop for an hour to let it pass. (no pun intended)

    Definitely ice. I use a 2 quart ziploc bag full applied directly to the skin of the affected area, but no longer than 20 minutes at a time.
