    The house we're buying is actually about a half-mile or so from Salem End Rd.; I've driven down it many times, but I'm really looking forward to finally riding it.

    Indeed, it can be speedy. Usually MWF are more relaxed, while T/TH is faster. The route starts in Needham and winds through Dover. It's beautiful, especially in the morning; my friend and I had to...

    Well, I attempted my first group ride since the "come back" began and it didn't last very long. I made it to the end of Greendale in Needham on the "Crack of Dawn" ride before my legs were burning...

    I work in Milton and have commuted to work via bike on a few occasions, and I would agree that Milton is indeed a wonderful town to ride, although it can get busy at high traffic times.

    Another short ride this morning (about 10 miles). I met a cycling friend I haven't seen in many months to drink coffee and take a short spin. He remarked during the ride that he forgot how much he...

    I cleared a physical as well as mental hurdle on Sunday and went for my first legitimate, clipped-in, kit wearing ride since October. I took a spin around Marblehead while my wife and I were home...

    I think the real difficulty is the rotation, not the simple fact of working third shift.

    I worked third shift (9:30 p.m.-6:00 a.m.) for nearly six years when I worked in television. On one hand, I...

    Indeed it is. I think the feeling of smoothness is also accentuated by the fact that my aluminum CAAD-9 is a pretty "rough" ride. I also love the stiffness of the frame. That seems to offset any...

    I've come to the revelation that my next bike might just be steel.

    I've been riding a friend's steel bike for the past week or so (my CAAD-9 is in the shop with a broken shift lever) and I love...

    That's what I assumed. Of course, I'd be the chaff hanging on for dear life. If my back is feeling better next year, I'll try to show up a few times.

    I ride that route regularly with a group in...

    I probably saw you last night. I was driving the other way down South Street when the group flew past. Someone I follow on Strava apparently had a pretty lengthy attack.

    The simplicity of rides like this is great. I ride with a couple of different groups in the morning during the week.

    One group simply has A and B. Both are fast, drop rides. The A group is usually...

    Out of Burlington, I'd recommend riding up to Colchester along the Lake. Not very far, can probably get a good 30ish mile loop though, but incredibly scenic.

    I rarely chase "KOMs" on Strava. On the one hand, I'm usually too slow compared to the racers/group rides who hold them. Also, I just generally think it's silly to ride fast simply because a computer...
