    I've not used these guys, but I've been on a number of organized trips, from wonderful to totally evil. I still shudder thinking about the totally evil one.

    I have had success with Sugoi Evolution shorts. Don't use any buttr/lube/glide, but I do wash down carefully after a long ride, and I treat a hot spot as soon as it starts to emerge with a zinc-based...

    Forwarded to a rando-friend, and to another friend who is dating a rando-rider. Not sure which one appreciated it more.

    There are people who get fixies (RebeccaC for example), and then there are people who like the idea of brakes and gears.

    Mind you I have a friend who commuted on a fixie on a relatively hilly...

    I also tried arm coolers once, and they just didn't work for me. Brand was Sugoi, I think, which I usually like, but they were too tight at the top, and they just felt warm and clammy. So I go the...

    I'm with pll on this one. I pay more for a light-weight helmet because it's less strain on my neck, so I don't want to add weight to it.

    But it may depend partly on what sort of bike you are...

    Windy here too, flags straight out and bitingly cold. Group of six, but I was the snail. The slower riders didn't show today (I am usually well ahead of them), and I was riding my Bike Friday, which...

    Got very wet, even on a short ride. It wasn't raining when we started, and then it drizzled, and then it really rained. Practice for tomorrow's group ride, perhaps. I am taking the Friday, because...

    So I'm one for one. Almost 20 km, including that killer hill.

    Of course I should have waited for the afternoon because it's warmer and dryer.

    31 days of biking?

    Anyone interested in continuing this concept, for the sheer hell of it? I know there will be at least day (and probably two) that I can't ride in May because I'll be on the road, but I'm game to give...

    I'm roughly with you on the miles for the month -- almost 700 km, which is just over 400 miles. Waiting to see what tomorrow brings.

    Amazing riding, Donna.

    My shortest ride was 2.6 km (that was on the day it snowed, I think), and the longest was 71km. I was aiming at 80, but one of the many flat tires got in the way. Two...

    Rode to the bank and the post office. Back to being brutally cold and very damp, but at least the wet stuff wasn't carpeting down from the sky like it was yesterday.

    I give up.

    It's still raining, it's 5 degrees and I need to be somewhere 45 minutes away in just over an hour.

    27 out of 29.

    Hoping for a gap of some sort between the rain clouds today, so I can at least run an errand or two. But it's looking really wet out there right now.

    I just recovered (I hope) from a rash of flats -- turns out the rim tape was a notch too narrow for the rims, so little bits of metal were exposed and that wore through the tube. Found it because the...

    Twenty six out of 27 April days, including a surprisingly hilly 65km today.

    Next week is supposed to be rainy. Will have to sneak out between the raindrops.

    20km, including that killer hill.

    I am shaving the occasional second off that killer hill, but it kills me every time. I just can't get enough oxygen into my lungs, or enough oomph in my leg.

    You can (mentally) extend April when you get back and ride then.
