    My 2005 Roubaix Pro has 25000 miles on it. aside from some paint, the frame seems as good as new. I keep waiting to fall in love with a newer bike, but I'm monogamous so far.

    305 cadence unit on a Garmin 800?

    Just bought a Garmin 800. I used to have a Garmin 305 w/cadence sensor and heart monitor. Can I use my 305's cadence unit successfully on the 800, or do I have to buy/install a 800-dedicated unit?

    Flattish Self-supported century

    A group of us would like to do a self-supported century as a sendoff for one of us, who is returning to Oregon after several months in SoCal. We've done centuries with 2600' or so of climbing in the...

    I'm not sure I'd still be alive if it weren't for the health benefits of cycling; I ride at least six centuries each year, and did about 5000 miles total last year. Take that, whippersnapper!!
