    My first rainy day of the season. On the ride in, I was staying dry until near the end on the Cherry Creek Trail near downtown. The creek was flooding the trail and I decided to plow through. Bad...

    I tried that and they're very hard to come by, esp. in the right size. But try eBay and Craigslist. And they're kind of like Hondas in that you don't really get that much of a discount for a used one...

    I'm doing a 500+ mile tour in late June. Should I get a Brooks? I figure I'll be putting in 150 miles a week or more until then.

    Strong head/cross winds this morning. I'm sure they'll reverse direction for the ride home.

    I think you're referring to my comment. I'm just saying that I'd love to own a Riv, but I've never owned anything close and probably never will. Not that I couldn't, but I don't want to peel off that...

    Any bike I've ever ridden could be called a poor-man's Rivendell, or even a poor-man's Rivendell substitute.

    The commute is longer because you're exercising. Assuming that you'll get some exercise one way or the other each day or at least each week, there's no opportunity cost. It's efficient use of time.

    Yes I rode yesterday and today. Still have my winter tires on so I figured what the hell. Last night was a bit dicey for me. Strong winds, low visibility and little margin for error on roads put me...

    Napalm Shower Of Death.

    I rode through heavy mist of tree sprayers this morning. Saw them standing there wearing masks and goggles but didn't figure it out until I was in it. Probably won't kill...

    I hear ya. I promised my wife I would keep them on for another week or so but if the weather looks clear next week they're coming off.

    My evening commute has improved significantly. Watched the sun set yesterday evening as I pedaled around 6:45, and saw kids playing ball in the parks. Magnificent.

    Thoughts on winter commuting

    Now that spring is knocking on the door and beginning to melt winter's icy grip, I thought I'd post some thoughts that banged around my head over the last four months. I've been off the forum for a...

    Random thoughts.
    Some weeks are just impossible to ride to work. I've got something screwing up my schedule almost every day this week. It's OK because I've ridden most days since December....

    I can tell you from experience that a 100-mile day, even if you're in decent shape, is a big deal. A 75-mile day also is a very serious ride, though most people who do some regular riding and are in...
