    I seem to average about one infection a year, and pyridium never does much of anything for me. I get better results from drinking lots of water. Hard to do, when peeing hurts, but the more I drink,...

    Yikes! No fun.

    I had an emergency lap to remove a ruptured ovarian cyst last year. I was in a horrific amount of pain prior to surgery and consequently doped up on a crazy amount of pain meds...

    Fit-over sunglasses tend to have very full coverage and are a heck of a lot cheaper than prescription sunglasses. Try TJ Maxx.

    Check your fenders. A good long full-coverage fender will keep most of the water well away from your feet.

    When it's really cold and nasty (not often here in sunny Austin, TX) I wear hiking boots.

    The Moving Comfort Fiona is available in a wide side range and quite popular with runners. I wear a 30F in lingerie bras and the Fiona in 32D is my go-to running bra.

    I commute and if I'm wearing makeup that day, I put it on before leaving the house. If I'm headed out for a purely recreational ride or run, I skip it. My commute is 3.5 miles each way and I almost...

    It's very easy to look up the weather radar on any computer or smartphone. If the storm looks like it's going to last for longer than you can stay at work, you can then institute your backup plan...

    No one has ever asked me that question.

    I get plenty of other questions about cycling and bike commuting, but the only clothing-related question I ever seem to field is, "Do you wear a helmet?"

    I like to pack a separate, brimmed sun hat that doubles as a rain hat for touring. I also treat it with permethrin to keep mosquitos away. Won't go camping without it, bike or no bike. This is my...

    Ditto. Drivers, too. I counted one morning, and I see +50 bike commuters every day. Maybe 2 or 3 are dressed in Lycra. Everyone else wears normal clothing. So what if the seat of my jeans wear out...

    How much of a facility do you need? Touring cyclists pack and unpack bikes in weird places (airports, train stations, hotel rooms) all the time. If you don't have the tools, $30 should get you...

    Love my LHT. I think that the weight issue is overrated. Off the rack, it weighs about the same as comparable bikes (I think mine was 25 lb?) it's all of the aftermarket gear we tend to load touring...

    The best thing I've found for chilly and windy is a cheap-o cycling jacket that I got on sale at REI for $22. It's not exactly waterproof, and it doesn't "breathe" at all so I get sweaty in a flash,...

    Take suit off in the shower, rinse under the shower head, run through the Suitmate (little machine that spins it dry) and hang in locker. They seem to last about 1.5 years with this regimen.
