  1. About three weeks to go!

    Hi,
    I just wanted to add a likely last bump to this post. My Climate Ride fundraising deadline is about three weeks away, and I have $780 to go. I was also laid off in June (I've got a continued UI...

    I think I forgot to check the box on my original post to tell me when replies were posted (or else they all went to my spam folder?), so i sort of forgot about this thread! anyway, thanks for the...

    Forgot to mention that I'll be fundraising through August 31, 2012. (Also, I've added two more bike advocacy beneficiaries.) Thanks!

    Thanks all for your feedback.

    BodhiTree, that's interesting, re: the BV feeling "faster" than the DC. I guess I would have assumed the opposite.

    Muirenn, I'm actually not compact at all. :-) ...

    Silly question about mixtes

    I'm thinking of getting a soma buena vista as an around-town bike. I already have a soma saga which seems to be working out fine, and the buena vista geometry looks very similar, so I think it would...
  7. brooks fan seeks non-brooks alternative for urban riding

    Hi,
    I'm in the process of fixing up an old hybrid for around town/commuting purposes. Originally the plan was to use the bike only for short rides (say, 20 min. or less at a time), but I eventually...

    thanks for the info. My speed estimate is fairly ballpark--I'm not taking my overall average either. (Strava link didn't work--looks like I need login info) I think 12-14 is just a typical speed...
  9. 50-60 mi. rides, slow-medium pace, Marin/Sonoma counties?

    The subject line is what i'm looking for. i think i'm about 12-14mph "on the flats," pretty darn slow going up hills, but particularly come spring and summer (nice weather, and also training for a...

    One thing I've found is that it seems like some businesses would like the request in writing. One or two of the places I called re: donations of gift cards or coupons for a raffle asked that I email...

    Thanks for all your suggestions. I have a couple more ideas I might pull out close to the end if I find I still need to raise more. For now, I'm still just contacting family, friends and coworkers....

    creative fund raising ideas?

    Hi everyone,
    I signed up for my first charity ride ever, Climate Ride California, taking place this fall. I've started fund raising and have been doing relatively well for this early in the game, I...
  15. Climate Ride California 2011 -- to benefit environmental and bike advocacy nonprofits

    Hello!

    This October I will be participating in my first charity bike ride ever, and I picked a doozy: Climate Ride California, which is a 5-day, 320-mile ride from Eureka, CA to San Francisco, CA...

    ok, i will try that sitting on hands/having someone else measure when i stand up thing. that "add 2 cm" (to your outside sit bone measurement) guideline is very helpful.

    and i agree, that is a...

    sundial: this saddle will be for a commuter/touring-type bike.

    thanks malkin.
    judging by the tinfoil measurement i did earlier, my sit bones seem to be around 5.5"-6" (140mm-152.4mm) apart, from their center areas. if i got a more standard 175mm wide saddle,...
