    You'll want to stay at designated camp grounds: state, county, or city parks, as opposed to just finding some brush on the side of the road and pitching a tent. It would be more safe. If you don't...

    Yeah, familiar with the basic one, as we've done one of those just for personal records and on the assumption he might need one later. But what do you mean, "full details"? Do you spell it out with a...

    You're making an erroneous assumption. When these riders go out for 2-3 hours at 19-21mph, that is their zone 1 ride. They're not in zone 3 and they're not working as hard as you think. That, and are...

    Oh yeah, one year is plenty of time. Just keep riding and building up a good solid base in your legs. Keep going to the group ride. Soon enough, you'll find you can keep up there, and the first race...

    No. Try to up your riding to 5-6 times per week. It's not the mileage you get in 2-3 rides a week that will give improvements, but the consistent, day-to-day riding that gives biggest, and quickest...

    You answered your own question.

    Yeah, if you hit hard, it can cause you to lose control.

    In a race, the closer you can follow a wheel, the better. But that will only happen if you feel comfortable doing it. Time to practice, with friends or on non-race group rides, but time to practice. ...

    I only get about 90mins out of one, that's the only shortcoming I've found. Maybe they've improved since I got mine about 7 months ago.
