While he got most of the headlines, Lance was far from being the only doper. Most of the pro peleton was doping in the 90's and early 2000's. They used more primative forms before that. The doping...

I like his podcasts, they provide a lot of insight into the races and are entertaining. I guess I've moved on from the doping scandal business that him and most of professional cycling were involved...

When I first saw the title of your post and your name, I thought the topic was going to be about winter cycling and the excessive road salt they use in Minnesota. :)

I remember getting this big red bike when in 1963 when I was 5. It had a rack in the back and dual headlights up front. It was way to big for me. I then got a stingray style bike from Sears. It had...

It looks like there is more than one definition of "comfort bike". I'm talking about the upright riding position, non-drop bar handle bars higher than the seat type. Not any kind of road bike. Or is...

That's the area of MN I grew up in. Yes, bring bug spray for sure. Deer flies will more of a bother when you're riding than skeeters.

Have fun,

I wear Tifosi Kilos. I have multiple lens for them and I like the photochromic red tinted lenses the best. They adapt to changing light conditions if you are trail riding.
