    I did this several times in succession.

    Clipless. Every bike, every ride.

    I like Shimano's A-520, single-sided "road/touring" SPD. They just work better for me than the double-sided MTB SPDs. (No doubt an operator problem.) My only...

    Okay, got it. Not a lane position or marking problem. Just another JAM.

    Not much you can do about idjits. Sometimes your best, which you seem to be already doing, isn't enough.

    When I started out, I listened to the old-timers and used Tri-Flow. It's perfectly adequate, until you commute in the rain. I rapidly grew tired of having to re-lube daily. In winter slush, it...

    I ride by the airport daily.

    Nothing's fallen out of the sky, except that time I was shat on by a bird I flushed out of a berry bush. Purple bird schidt. Stained my hi-viz jacket.

    Agreed. I think her current bike has some sort of gearing--maybe a three-speed? I dunno. But I do know she never uses it. So the first thing will be, when, why and how to shift.

    Since you asked, the cycling.

    The company? Meh.

    A) I'm an introvert, so alone is preferable to company.
    B) I'm gay. So what you're thinking about a cabin on a lake with a woman? ...

    I know, but that's what they ride in the city in the Netherlands. At a cadence of about 30. Fortunately for her, it's nearly as flat here, so it's not been a problem.

    It's one ride from point A to point B, spending the weekend, then another ride from point B to point A. Depends on your perspective, I guess.

    Point A to Point B

    My bikes are my transportation. I got rid of my car in April of 1999. Thus, most of my cycling is done commuting—roughly 70% every year, whether you measure by number of rides, saddle time, or...

    I have choices.

    My direct route, which I use only in inclement weather, is 4.5 miles and dead flat. The average is 25 feet per mile, but most of that is on the bridge over the river.
