    Tell me about Seattle, WA

    I am in the next-to-last stage of my application with King County, Washington. If it comes to relocating, one of the big negatives hanging over my head is the weather. I've been warned about the...

    For me, it just feels like I have no energy to tap when I'm riding. Only rarely did I actually wheeze on a ride. And my heart rate skyrockets when I have to exert myself on hills. Hoping some of that...

    Well, I did the 100k ride in 5:20. Pretty sad, but I did have a nasty headwind the last 12 miles and there were a lot more hills than either of us expected, four or five pretty nasty ones. :eek: My...

    On my way home from a group ride, I was hit by a driver who ran (well, didn't even acknowledge) a stop sign. I don't remember leaving the bike or hitting the ground, but I remember seeing the car...
