    What kind of shoes/cleats do you have? If you have mountain or touring shoes, you really don't need cleat covers. The recessed sole protects the cleats. I use them because I have a road system and...

    Managed 46 miles on Saturday and a total of 60 on Monday (though in 3 separate rides). Got slammed with a migraine 10 miles from home on Monday. Fortunately I carry Ibuprofen on my bike! That plus...

    Did a gently rolling 38 miles out into Lexington, Lincoln & Concord. Took it slow and enjoyed the weather. Then took my dad out for a Father's Day lunch and day in Boston.

    I have the Trek 1.1 WSD, which I don't believe they make anymore. The Lexa replaced it last year, and it is essentially the same bike. The Dolce is comparable to these bikes. I love my Trek. Even...

    I get this all the time in my car. I guess a Civic coupe with a bike rack on the trunk makes me look "weak" to certain drivers of larger vehicles, so I get tail-gated often. Just yesterday I was...

    Thanks, Owlie! That's really helpful. I wasn't sure if the leg cramp was related to not eating or if it was something else, but it seems like everything was related.

    Did you get one of the pink Wheelworks bottles at Redbones? I came home with one of those. Very excited about it. Probably too excited.
