    If you're riding locally, you could just laminate the relevant parts of a county map and stuff the appropriate pages into your jersey or saddle bag. Many maps have the virtue of showing the road...

    Use whatever saddle is comfortable for you. There's absolutely no bike/saddle match, it's all about rider (bum and posture)/saddle matching.

    Fantastically entertaining stage. Contador and Froome were fun to watch even if the outcome seemed almost pre-ordained. Purito showed great guts and gusto. Valverde even appeared to have some heart...

    The videos are total failures. The first one shows a the bike gutter hugging and has the car unsafely pass in a sharrow. The second one implies that cyclists are supposed to ride in the door zone and...

    What exactly is walking distance? As near as I can tell walking distance in America is about the length of one building, which kind of kills off getting people to leave their cars behind and...

    The crappy AASHTO standards allow for the bike lane to be included in the twelve feet nearest the curb when there is adjacent parking. Since some motor vehicles can legally park and still have their...

    We had a recent thread decrying the lack of effort by NYPD in a hit-and-run smacking of a cyclist. In my experience, the story depicted is fairly typical in terms of indifference on the part of law...
