Shoulders in central Florida

I recently spent a week cycling about 250 miles around central Florida, mostly west of Orlando and north - northeast of Tampa. In the rural areas it occurred to me that the US highways (50,98,27,17)...

Apartment Living with Bikes

I'm about to be forced to move out of my nice house that has a shed where I keep my bikes. Been looking at houses/duplexes because I don't want someone above me but also because they tend to have...

That article is misleading. The news is that now you can get from Denver to Glenwood without riding on I-70. There was a 2 mile stretch between the Genessee and Evergreen Parkway exits where riding...

I almost never 'feel like riding' when I first get up, usually between 5 and 5:30am. Probably 1 of 3 mornings that I plan on riding I'll sit there with my coffee and think of reasons not to. Then I...

I'm with you. I used to go up there just about every year from when I was a small child until they brought the gambling. Drove around up there recently and it's just sad now. However if I'm ever on a...

Sorry you haven't found ideal conditions for cycling. I have been here for decades and the traffic over the last few years is like nothing I remember. Lots of people are moving in. The Denver area is...

MunichMan, I couldn't find any rentals around here for even $200 a week. I concur with randallr that you should consider bringing your own bicycles.

Lookout

I've ridden Lookout mountain west of Denver here twice this month and it's been great. This is the first time I've gone into the hills in January. The road itself and the ones around it are in good...

To me it's all about how FAR the ride is. I'll go a few miles in below zero temps. My actual commute is about 20 miles and as the ride goes on it gets harder and harder to keep everything...

A friend of mine does the FDR and PHP rides regularly. I'm considering joining in this Spring. From what I hear they are fast - average 25mph+ usually, and competitive. I think if you want to get a...

I think I know what you mean and I'll say around 15mph, on the roads where bikes have full lane access and the speed limit is 25-35mph. No idea what the rest of your commute is like and no idea what...

That is funny, I feel exactly the same way. I'm closing in on 3000 miles of commuting for the year and maybe one day a month I got up excited to do it. But like you said, I am always glad I did,...

You might try writing down the locations of some of your rougher areas of your commute and call the city about it. Don't know about Westminster so much but surprisingly I've seen rather quick results...

I've had the exact same thing happen to me more than once, in the dark and in the daylight. Every time, as someone else mentioned, it was cell phone related.

I draft and have been drafted. Only happens once or twice a year that I match speed and route with someone enough for it to happen. When it does we're usually doing around 25mph. Not a big deal, the...

Actually I have a couple of slight variations I can make from day to day, but changing it too much makes it longer and it's already about 22 miles each way

I commuted almost 500 miles in July, going home between 4 and 5:30pm most days. Pretty sure it was upper 90's to 100 a few times. Gotta say I love it. I fill up a 24 oz bottle of ice water and mix in...
