    Yes, it's really cold here. Yesterday a front came rolling through. It dropped from 50's at dawn to 30's during the day and down from there overnight, with howling winds to boot. It actually felt...

    Mimi -- not tight, snug. Too tight is bad news. I made the mistake of wearing a liner with a narrow pair of gloves that had a thick, fleecy inner-lining. My hands were clumsy for riding, and hurt...

    My perspective on training your body for long rides is time/distance and last, speed. Time is first because you're only going to ride as long and as far as your butt will let you. Make sure you...

    I would say you were seriously overdressed. No, you should not be drenched when layering for winter riding. But you didn't layer effectively, you put 3 outer-wear pieces on top of each other. The...

    2nd rave review for EO knickers!

    So long as you stay away from the gel version, the Vitesse will be firmer than the Butterfly, but not as hard as the Flite. Shape-wise, it is similar to the Flite. So if you like the shape of the...

    I've heard before not to use petroleum jelly products on a rash -- they seal it in too well & don't let air get through.
