    OK - so I crash every 3-4 years. Until this year. Late April I clipped a pedal in a race and broke a collarbone. Just about over that, then I'm on a group ride and the leaders decide to go right...

    Denver Area Riding & Racing

    I live in the Northeast but may have to relocate for work. We are quite spoiled here as far as the quantity of back roads meaning hours of peaceful riding without tons of cars.

    Denver has a great...

    Also if you are in a successful breakaway, don't attack to get a prime. You will risk the integrity of the break and probably prompt the rest of the members to drop you.

    Things I say NEVER consume:
    1. Soda/softdrinks
    2. Trans-fats (watch some of the "healthy" bread labels)
    3. Fast food

    Otherwise you're fine in moderation.


    Cheese is actually good for you. ...
