Or both.
I try not to take risks in any traffic, and when contemplating pushing beyond my limits (which is not good for one's body) I ride for tomorrow's hard ride.

Actually i prefer to post in the 65+ thread and Pub51, but it's a lonely place lately.

edit: anyone who can touch or almost touch their toes without pain can ride flat backed in the drops, it's not bending but proper saddle and rolling hips. Dump your Brooks B17. Actually, i was just poking a bit of fun at stingray66's post. Everyone should just ride with a smile on their face - best for all.

....who really knows what tomorrow brings, maybe new direction for my soul and things!
