Yep, I only moved down here last October a week after I finished my C&O ride. Got back, washed down the bike, and boxed it up the next day for the move. I actually like the dusty bike look, though....

Well, I had nothing else going on this afternoon so I tried the Sora and I did need the new chain. Big-big just barely and small-small has enough tension. Now I've got to tweak the shifting. But...

And how!

I got a Kickr Core a little over a month ago. Climbing on it definitely feels a lot more realistic. It's not exactly the same as the road, but better than the dumb trainer. I use Rouvy...

Go to eBay and search for "Sunrace 9 speed cassette". Plenty of sellers. If you get the Core, it comes with a spacer that you slip onto the hub before sliding on the cassette to allow your lockring...

I tried a time trial on Rouvy for the first time tonight. The interface isn't that intuitive but I also watched no How-tos. The route, though, was interesting and it felt more "real" than Zwift. I...

You're in for a treat. I've been in Arlington for 6 months and have found the bike network to be excellent. You're across the road from the Mt. Vernon trail and you'll be able to get to the W&OD...

That's how I started but only a fraction of the pad is white. The rest is black and the threads are even harder to get at (and see) since the pad is fleecy and the thread is buried in the pad. I'm...

Turned out to be a great ride with a bit of fog up to Cabrillo. I extended the ride to almost 50 miles and went up to La Jolla Cove. I rented a full carbon frame and it was awesome!

Yom Kippur ride in Israel

In Israel on Yom Kippur, the country shuts down to observe this holiest of days on the Jewish calendar. The airports close. The borders close. And it's taboo to drive your car on the roads. ...

I always prop the bike outside on the storefront. If I feel a little leery, I either won't stop there or just fasten my helmet around the wheels. I will also try to shift into big/small to make it...

There seems to be very little "gravel" here as it's either road or MTB (at least to me). I have not seen another gravel bike here in over a year. I switched out my 40mm Kenda gravel tires for 32mm...
