    Today I did a ride that was new for me. In fact, I've rarely even driven in some of these places.

    You've received some good advice here. I echo the advice to do a practice run once, with the pepper spray. Maybe you can find someone to ride with you once, to test it out?

    I am in awe you can do that on even minimal drugs. My mom was a serious knitter (she made me winter coats when I was a kid), worked in a yarn shop, and taught others. But, she couldn't teach me! It...

    First early AM trail run. I don't want to commute today and have to ride home in the 98 degree 90% humidity, with good chance of thunderstorms.

    In the garden shed, which has been a bike shed since we bought this house! At one time, there were 9 bikes in there; now there are 5. DH's 3 are hung on hooks, on the right side. My 2 bikes are in...

    I used the Di2 shifting on the Madone I rented for my trip to Provence. Frankly, I don't see what the big deal is. So, you tap the shifter a little lighter? I never have had any trouble with my...

    Yes, I am 5' 1" and the 47 cm Silque fits me perfectly. I had a shop sell me a 50 cm bike years ago. The top tube was in my crotch, but I was just too dumb to say anything. I eventually made them...

    This is a crock. My LBS said there was a back order/delay on getting the 165 cranks, but they never discouraged me. In the end, I got the bike about 6 weeks earlier than they had thought! It is...

    She means an endurance bike, not the kind of comfort bike you are talking about. But, you knew that.

    I loved my Kuota, but, it was twitchy. My Silque feels smooth. So, I was OK with the aggressive geometry, but it wasn't until I had the Madone on my bike tour in Portugal that I actually felt the...
