    Added another 1/10 mile branch on my MTB trails, today. That doesn't sound like much, but, believe me, that is full day of work and heavy work at that. Good section, though, with some hefty steeps...

    Some MTBs and fat bikes, even on the higher end models, are now coming with good flat pedals. I use the Expedo Spry on a couple of bikes and like them. Great pedal for the money and very light. These...

    I don't want to get pushy about my preference for flat pedals and by flats I mean thin platform pedals with pins on either side, not the old blocky cruiser pedals we had on Schwinns when we were kids...

    I'm with Sheila on the shoes for flat pedals. One of the big plusses for flats is that you don't need special shoes. Just use what you're wearing, hop on the bike and go. As long as the soles of the...

    Plus one on what Rebecca says about the folding beads. I use them on all my MTBs, not because they're lighter, but because they do give a little when I have to change tires. Still a matter of...

    Three in a month is nuts, for sure. What gives?

    The rain and drizzle continues, but I'm still riding. Figure that if I live, up here, I gotta take what comes and keep going. Okay, makes me sound...

    60s for highs, this week, here. Even had a scattered frost warning, earlier in the week.

    Steady light rain and drizzle, today, but, as always, couldn't stand being trapped in the house. Headed...

    Best of luck, NY. Sounds like it's time to just replace the tube, though. If it's leaking around the base of the stem where it protrudes from the tube, a patch might be an iffy fix.

    I hear you...

    Yeah, guess I'm hooked on all this off the pavement riding stuff, either via single track, trail, gravel, dirt or sand road. Love the "never know what...

    I agree on not riding when a cold is coming on, Emily. From experience, riding can make it worse. Rest up.

    Bill and I recently purchased a bike rack for the Toyota so that he could join me on some...

    Thanks for the info, Crankin. Encouraging.

    No trail repair work, today. Pretty much decided to mothball that kind of work for this summer. Did a lot of trail riding, today, though. 13 plus miles...

    Crankin, I'll have to give you credit for getting out that early to ride. I had no choice to get out and ride that early when I was commuting, but now that we're retired, no thanks. :)

    Sounds like you're back to your usual great form, Emily. Glad to hear it.

    As for me, I'm not piling up the road miles, since my daily riding is always trail riding with some road riding thrown in...

    Emily, that is wonderful news, just wonderful. I am happy for you. You'll do fine in that Florida heat. You've done it before. Plus, you'll need to keep rides short to get back into shape, anyway....
