    Oh, definitely. It's a thing worth saving for. I know most people "save" for cars or houses. While we will eventually save for a house, neither of us is looking to upgrade the car at this time (we...

    So, I'm up here in Ottawa and I haven't driven my car in what will be 2 weeks as of tomorrow. Nope, not kidding. Haven't driven. I have ridden every day and for the most part, it has been...

    I have a rack, a basket, and a waterproof pannier and this proves most versatile on my cross bike. I have a bunch of braze-ons but even when I had another style rode bike, I used c-clamps to attach...

    Getting up is the point. That's what makes me feel awesome.

    I gained on EVERY climb last night on the Monday fast ride. Averaged about 15.5 mph for over 30 miles. Take that, lungs. Of course,...

    I wish SO MUCH that I had the money for one of these. Maybe when I have a "real job". Pretty sure the fiance would kill me. I would totally get a lime green bike with pink flames and metallic...

    Ny biker,

    That sounds lovely. Yeah, I have to also be careful of breathing - very mindful of that. My asthma isn't technically "exercised induced" but rather "allergy induced" these days. ...

    I have a perfect gear for the flats. I don't think I get tired as much as distracted/bored. I can't focus well. It's really not my body being tired or sore just not really being told what to do by...

    Yeah, if you are lucky to live in an area where women's cyclists are supported, please go to the shops that are supporting them. One of the shops in town is definitely more about male racers than...

    That's why I frequent the LBS I do. They have done so much "free" stuff (simple stuff but in a pinch it mattered so much) and are so into helping women learn bike maintenance that I can't complain. ...

    Yeah. I need some hills to get my legs responding, I think. It's weird. Most people look at me like I have two heads. The group leader was like, "You hung back and seemed rather timid until you...

    Nybiker, that sounds like an awesome excuse to ride. Glad you got out! And crankin, Congrats!

    My goal was 120 miles. I am now at 142, so I kicked butt this week. Did the club ride with the...

    Did a ride with a local group. It was fun but WAY faster and longer than advertised. Advertised it was 22-24km/hr and 40 km for the slow group. We averaged almost 28 and ended up doing closed to...

    Sorry you guys had some rough bit of rides.

    I got lost (didn't quite make it up to Meech lake as planned) but still got about 25 miles in. Had about 75 miles in the previous week despite about 19...

    That's awesome! Great picture.

    I rode around Toronto a bit and have been out 2-3 times/day here in Ottawa. Got 20 miles in today and it was like I didn't even know it. Went down to the best...

    Some cool stuff here.

    I always was in a child seat behind my parents from infancy, basically. They brought my sister and I EVERYWHERE. One of my first memories is being out on my Dad's road bike...

    The BF asks for specifics. He knows better than to buy me clothing without my prior approval. My mom generally does well - she knows that I really like LG shorts and jerseys are pretty easy. But I...

    We just got ours. I bought the matching locking pin, too, since mine is always on my Kia. It was the best choice and we LOVE it. The most secure rack I have ever owned and also the lightest. Also,...

    I think it's awesome to get to combine transit and rail! Good for you. A commute is good for the soul. And I am sure it will be a good time with the kids.

    This. SO MUCH this. I also downgrade and try to stay seated on long hills because I worry about losing momentum otherwise. However, on short, steep hills, I will always get up and out. I mix it...
