    I did the 64 mile ride with my sister. No problems with the water--there were patches of it on Edgar or Liners or whatever that road was, but it was easily avoided by just staying in the center of...

    I remember that they told me my kids' blood type in the hospital when they were newborns, so your pediatrician should have that information. If not, don't bother; as others have said, they would run...

    I have a gym at work with showers, but never use it (at least not after cycling to work). I carry a ziplock bag with baby wipes in it and wipe down with them when I change into work clothes.
