    Old take-off cables, chain links and/or a spoke or two if you have them. An old take-off tire or two. Whatever emergency spares you usually carry on your long unsupported rides - those are the kind...

    I don't know that area, but I do know of a PT/bike fitter in Columbus, Ohio, which is close enough that he may know of a colleague in your area if you can't find anyone directly.

    Leg/knee warmers, like arm warmers, are great for changing conditions. Those fall days when you can start out with frost on the ground and have it be 70F by the time you pull in. When it's full cold...

    Sadly, a lot of these people view a driver's license as a mere formality. They might or might not have had one at one time, but losing it doesn't stop them from driving, not around here anyway. And,...

    That's the same attitude I had when I used to do an evening ride with a group that was somewhat over my head. Sounds similar to yours. I didn't think I needed to eat for a 25-30 mile ride, I just...

    Don't neglect your pre-ride nutrition. With an evening ride, it's easy to go out without having eaten since lunch, with your muscles already glycogen depleted. (That can actually happen quicker with...
