They provide additional traction if the bridge is wet.

I assume he's talking about the kind of bridges where the entire road surface is made out of a kind of textured see-through steel grating.

Is this to aid in identification if the bike is lost or stolen? If not, it sounds like a "Because Racecar" kind of thing. Bonus points if you include a little flag decal after your name.

My bike is a 50/34 in front (I had to look it up just now). I use the 50 ring a lot more than I do the 34, but the roads here are very flat, and I don't go off-road. Like they say, your mileage may...

I'm 55 so I've been riding since about 1970 or so and I still can't do 150 miles. But truth be told, I've never tried. But even if I did, I'd probably be too wiped out to do it again the next day.

A co-worker used to spray WD40 on all exposed skin; he claimed it kept the mosquitoes away. For some reason though I wouldn't recommend that.

He's dead now, in case you're wondering.
