Did a slow and easy 22 miles to Stone Mtn and back today. Seems while I've been stuck on the trainer the county has decided to dig up the road in a few places. I wasn't too keen on riding through or over that.

whooo Atlanta! Oh, and to those of you who don't know yet, Decatur Bikes (on ponce, close to jimmy john's) is on scoutmob right now. I just rode back downtown from there, picked up a new rear tire. The owner, Dave, was awesome. Get some deals!

Did 30 miles today including a lap around Stone Mtn. It was my second ride around the mtn since the surgery. A friend of mine caught up with me about half way around and "pulled me" the rest of the way. Thanks John. He's the owner of RoadBikeRider.com. He said he's preparing for the California Coastal Classic. Good luck and have fun.

Did the ride to Stone Mtn today. Did a lap and attempted a second lap but my breathing isn't back to what is was yet so turned around in front of the Stone Mtn Inn.

On my way home I stopped to help a friend who had hit something in the road and had a huge cut his rear tire. He ended up using both CO2 cartridges trying to fill a leaky spare tube. I offered him my spare tube but it wouldn't work. I have Mavic Open Pro rims and he has deep V rims so the valve stem was too short. He used my cell phone to call for a ride. I think he found someone on the second call. I hope he got home ok.

Did everyone notice that Intown Bicycles (my former employer before I retired) is the only Atlanta area shop listed in Bicycling magazine's 100 favorite shops (October 2011 issue). They are the second shop in the listing. The Hub in Athens is the only other GA shop listed. Congrats Mike.

Hi everybody! I'm new to both Atlanta and to cycling. I'm *completely* out of shape (haven't seriously exercised in years), but I have goals of losing my spare tire and riding a metric century within a year.

I don't really have the power to deal with carrying my gut up the rolling hills in ATL yet (yes, I know, granny gears and high cadence!). I'm looking for a flat'ish bicycle friendly route to build up my base cardiovascular endurance a bit before tackling hills and intervals. I'd like to find something near phipps.

Any suggestions?

Welcome. The bike path from the east side of ATL to Stone Mtn is semi-flat. No really big climbs.
If you want to try an "easy" metric (this weekend ) here's one.

Thanks, I'll check out the stone mountain route.

I think there are 2 ways I could do a metric this weekend:
1) In something powered by gasoline, or
2) Ending up at the morgue

Maybe next year!

Next year??? If you feel up to it there are others in the area later in the fall. Check the SBL ride calendar and Bicycle Georgia ride calendar.

I meant maybe I'll join that annual ride the next time it comes around, which would be next year.

Thanks for the heads up!

Anyone riding in the 24 Hours of Booty tomorrow at Stone Mtn Park? I rode to Stone Mtn today so I'll be there tomorrow (Oct 1) with my camera but not my bike.

I was surprised at the small number of spectators at the start of the 24 Hours of Booty.
Bob Roll was the big celebrity welcoming everyone and was in the leadout group.
Here are some of the pictures I took at the start of the ride.

It was cool enough to turn on the heat this morning. I guess it's time to break out the base layer stuff, arm warmers, knee warmers, and full finger gloves.

Loving this cooler weather, Ron. For the time being I am just using a long sleeve lycra shirt. I guess I need to look into some "real" cold weather cycling clothes this season. The fleece stuff slows me down too much...lol.

Any of y'all riding on the Southern Crescent side of town?

The deed is done!
Peachtree Bikes had a big sale this weekend and I just HAD to check it out.
I've been thinking of getting another bike and so .....
Saturday I went to look at the Felt F5. They didn't have any in my size. The shop manager suggested a Z5 for a smoother ride. Gee, no Z5s in my size either so I test rode a Z4. Wow, what a ride! I really liked it! They were about to close when I finished the ride so told them I'd be back today to do a proper test ride with bike shorts and my pedals and shoes. I did a 20 minute ride around the neighborhood. I gave it two thumbs up. They put the bike on the trainer and after about 45+ minutes of adjustments it was ready to go. The sale price was $800 off the regular price.
It's now in the place of honor -- next to my Litespeed. As soon as we have a sunny day (tomorrow??) I take a few pics and post them.

Anyone in need of a 2011 Specialized Tarmac Elite, 56cm? Got a friend who might want it? It's on craigslist.

You are going to love that Felt. I just got the F5 myself and really digging it, which has been reflected in the mileage.
What are you going to be asking for the Tarmac? I have a buddy searching for a nice bike right now.

If you haven't seen these, here are some links explaining what to wear, layers, etc for cooler weather.

Enjoy this cooler weather. It's going to be with us for a while.

Ok! I've figured out how to end the drought we're in. Everyone go out and buy a bike.
I picked mine up Sunday afternoon and installed the bottle cages, computer, etc after I got home. Went out for my first good ride yesterday morning and what happened? The rain began. You know the rest of the story. Looks like I can ride tomorrow. It's supposed to be sunny.
