    If it's a long, steady climb, I try to get my breathing and pedal strokes into a rhythm, then try to add a song or beat on top of that. Meanwhile, I compliment myself on how awesome I look wearing my...

    To answer the question: No. I'm confident in my riding ability and am well aware that, on any particular ride, I may be the fastest, slowest, or averagist rider in the area.

    Without knowing anything about you (age, size,strength, century experience, recent training, etc.) it's tough to provide much. A single ride one week before the event is not going to materially...

    Yes, I've given away 3 bikes, each being a bike my son had outgrown. While one was a clunker KMart mountain bike, the other two were nice bikes, purchased new, used for a few years, then donated.
