    Well, I wrote to "Dear Abby." Where I live, I've never seen nor heard of a cyclist getting ticketed. But I've hardly seen or heard of any drivers getting ticketed in a long time around here,...

    For multi-use paths to work, people have to share and be respectful of others. Unfortunately, that's asking an awful lot of some people.

    Well, this is where I wanted to ride. It's my favorite bike path - it goes down the hill and follows along what's usually beside the river, and goes under the bridge and continues on --

    Darn, I just missed them! If I could have gotten off work a little early I could have driven a few miles to the route and waved a "Ride Strong" (or something) sign for them.

    Our neighborhood is like that, too. The houses are 50-60 years old, and each yard on our block had a pair of honey locust trees in the front yard. A lot of them have been cut down and/or replaced,...

    Seems like I read somewhere that the Enduro didn't go over so well because the riders felt if they were rested, it was more of a stage race than an ultra marathon. Crazy, isn't it?

    I get such a kick out of reading the riders' blogs. I think everyone expects Kansas to be an easy state - all nice and flat. The RAAM route goes through mostly flat terrain, but there are still...
