    I am a spandex wearing roadie that averages about 4K miles a year, with a fair amount of climbing.

    My life is changing and I want to take a sabbatical from it all. Would I be in shape to hop on a...

    Portlanders: do you ride in the rain?

    I understand that it may be a stupid question, but I am serious!

    I will be moving to Portland next month. I lived most of my life in NYC, where I was mainly a bike commuter. It wasn't until I...

    And also much much hotter. The OP did not mention what time of year (perhaps I missed it), but it can be brutal in the summer months.

    Like I assume many here, I tend to ride in the right hand turn lane instead of on the shoulder on roads where those turning right is minimal (if at all).

    One day, I was riding in such a lane....

  7. Anyone doing the Santa Cruz Mountain Challenge?

    The 200km is equivalent to the Death Ride. I am "only" doing the 100m route. :eek:

    That's my conclusion as well. Since the route is somewhat known, I would simply organize it myself, but I live nowhere close to SF.

    A friend and I discussed about doing something similar in...

    Does this ride happen anymore? Once again, spent so much time searching online, and I found nothing for 2014.

    Yeah, the Arroyo Seco campground is not really an improvement over Greenfield. At least with Greenfield, I would have other options of drinks to purchase. I did a hilly 40 mile ride this past weekend...

    The segments are from Strava, so you need to create a segment on that site. You would need an account. I use veloviewer.com as a reference because you can share segments without someone needed to...

    Salinas Valley / River Road

    Does anybody here ever travel on River Road? I don't think so, but it is worth a shot.

    I want to do an unsupported century looping into Carmel Valley, but I cannot think of anywhere to get water...

    Maybe that road is a segment on Strava. However, it would be hard to look at Sunday's riders at this point.

    I would suggest not taking this route. Hwy 1 at that point is two lanes with barely any shoulder. You will be going slowly up a hill. The OP also wanted to avoid hills and the peak is about 555 feet.

    You forgot to mention how the bike is doing! :)

    Did you see a doctor? As far as pedals go, you will get used to them pretty quickly. The entry level Shimano road pedals are a good overall deal.

    Actually that was the confusing part. The "Download Full Route Maps and Profiles" link does not have any detail. It was the "Download Full Route Logs" which I was looking for.
