    When is your ride? If it's in the next day or two, all I can say is relax, get enough sleep, and have faith in yourself. Think of the fun you'll have, and the sense of accomplishment you'll have! And...

    Oh wow, that is seriously uncool.

    I agree with smilingcat - if the bike was in the shop's possession for repairs, it's their responsibility and they really need to replace the saddle and seat...

    Here in the Great White North (aka Minnesota), cycling can be tough in the winter. Sure, I see folks out commuting on those awesome super-fat-tire winter bikes, and mountain bikes, but when it's 6 F...

    Yesterday was my birthday and DH and I wanted to do a long ride for my birthday. I got my wish but learned a couple of lessons!

    The weather was supposed to be beautiful. Up to 70 degrees. We...

    LOL - my mistake. I meant a padded bra. Like ridiculous amounts of padding. The other problem with those? I felt like I was lying!

    Also, I probably wouldn't skip the bra if I were in my cycling...

    I'm pretty flat. Mistaken for a boy in college. A little more now, in my late 30s, but I'm also 20 lbs heavier than in college!

    But I realized early early on that I didn't want bigger boobs. First...

    For what it's worth, Limewave, give the baby shampoo a chance to work.

    I had weird swelling and peeling on my eyelid, first one, then both, off and on for over a year. It would come on stronger...

    I believe it will also help if you focus on a smooth, even pedal stroke all the way around. When there's very little resistance on the pedals, I find that it helps me to focus on the "back and forth"...

    Thanks, Cathy88! I've tried to keep an eye on the TCBC calendar, but I hadn't seen the Hub's calendar (I test rode bikes there, though!) I'd love to meet some other women who ride. Evenings might...

    I'm not a great hill climber by any means, but I, too, do a mix of standing and sitting. I read somewhere that if you stand and you're not super close to the top, that you should keep it to 8 to 10...

    Brilliant! Hilarious! Does NOT make me want to explore Cyclocross in all its muddy, acrobatic, kimchi-quesadilla-ridden glory!

    Thanks to everyone who has responded and given me support here in this thread.

    The whole thing is really too bad. So many people looked up to those guys! Plus, I think we're teaching a whole generation that honesty gets you nowhere and greed and cheating are the only way to...

    I can think of at least one guy I wouldn't mind seeing in white kit in the rain.... But... in general? Not so much!

    I have a white bike with blue accents. I was actually a little concerned when I bought it because it looks like an expensive bike, and I didn't want to be a crime target. I let the frame get a bit...

    Thanks again, everybody.

    I've been thinking about this, and I think I need to address the little snitty blow out. As follows: I recognize that we had a clash this morning. I think it's because...

    This is awesome! Thanks for sharing. I love it when I see older people staying active, fit, and adventurous. When I worked at a ski resort, I met an 87 yr old man who after a lifetime of downhill...

    Thanks, all.

    Owlie, I take the old mountain bike and drop it into low gear and spin it out at about 100+rpm. I'm thinking if I go with her again I need to take the 40 pound steel vintage bike!!...

    A month or six weeks ago, upon hearing that I biked a lot, my neighbor (let's call her Jane) asked me if...

    At least, if it's accompanied by the company of friends I don't get to see often enough!
