    Don't worry, I am probably too lazy! I just thought that I would throw the idea out there. Because I am frustrated about the boat sitting unused. My boat is a Lido. But the only real advantage to...

    My main concern about the width is that I would need to take the entire traffic lane to tow something five feet wide. And while I think I would have the right to do this, I doubt if many motorists...

    is a good one!

    I whole-heartedly agree with your reasoning!

    LOL!
  4. I think width would annoy people

    My main concern about the width is that I would need to take the entire traffic lane to tow something five feet wide. And while I think I would have the right to do this, I doubt if many motorists...

    ROTFLMHO!

    Along with my extra chins, and the dingly-dangly upper arm flab.

    But that is why I ride an old steel frame bike (and I enjoy knowing that my bike would be the last choice for a bike...
  6. Towing a sailboat by bike? Anyone doing it?

    I am so frustrated....

    I own a small sailboat, and she sits on a trailer in the driveway because I do not own a car.

    When I think of storing her at a sailing club for small boats, I am...

    Thanks, gals for thinking about me!

    I was thinking of moving the shifters lower down, onto the bike frame. (I think this was a popular spot to place the shifters. But noone has suggested that...

    Wow!

    I am so happy to hear that these cups have become so popular. I only have irregular periods now, every 3 months, 6 months or whatever. (I am 49) So I don't think I will invest in one of...

    I sympathize with you. My advice is to do whatever you want to do. It is crazy to try to please family members who won't be pleased with us anyway. Besides, do they really need to know that you...
  10. X rays negative, "Guess it's just a bruise"

    I had the X rays done, and they were negative. So the PA (Physicians Assistant said that it is just a whopper of a bruise. Actually, I got the fluid to go away on my own by wrapping an elastic...

    Sorry that you feel down, but spring will come again!

    Kajero,

    By definition, if cycling made you feel better, than you wouldn't be depressed. Just try to remember that there is no reason for you not to enjoy cycling again, once your depression...

    Thanks for your replies!

    I am so HARD on myself! I read Wildhawks comment, and immediately wanted to think about the distance I rode.

    But now I have remembered that a year ago, I was only able to walk as far as the bus,...

    My November Goal-Feeling Comfortable

    Okay, it isn't quite November...but anyway...

    In keeping with Susan Weaver's suggestion, I am setting a monthly goal. (A Woman's Guide to Cycling, page 104.)

    After crashing last month, and not...

    I am not bending at the waist! There is no room for my girth from front to back between the tip of my seat and my shifters. I guess I could try to lean over and stand to the side.

    Or just ride...
  17. Too Fat to Ride??? (Gear shifting problem)

    Can a woman be too fat to ride? I weigh about 264, and am 5'6" tall.

    When I stop, and dismount from my seat, my belly bumps against my shift levers. I have a 1980's Schwinn, with shifts levers...

    The cost of tire tubes.

    I stopped in at a bike shop, after a long (two year?) hiatus from cycling. I decided that instead of the nice new tool bag, I really ought to buy a spare tube.

    The clerk remarked that they are...
  20. Yes, the helmet has been replaced.

    My neighbor/ friend's BF heard about my accident, and insisted on fixing up my bike, and gave me one of his helmets and a pair of amber Oakleys. I think that she was actually a bit jealous. She...

    BTA (Bicycle Transportation Alliance) referred me to the traffic dept. They said they don't take reports if it was a single bike accident. I asked if I needed to file for a single car, and they...

    Portland Oregon questions

    Hi,

    I just reregistered. I was in an accident yesterday, and I was wondering whether I should report it somewhere. Does anyone compile statistics on this stuff? I wrote a post on the Adventure...
  24. My first big spill (Now I KNOW that helmets work!)

    I was in the bike lane on N. Portland Road, in Portland, Oregon. The lane was marked as a bike lane, on the shoulder of the road. Evidently, I hit some wood debris. All I know is that I was...
