    How do I start a cycling club?

    Any suggestions? The goal would be to have an organization which offers regular rides for people training for distance rides or triathlons. I would also like to have regular informational seminars (bike maintenance, riding tips, nutrition, etc.). Currently, there are about 20 or so of us that...

    Anyone ever FedEx a bike?

    Thanks for your response. I don't think this will work for us. The Amtrak stations are downtown (Dallas or Ft. Worth) and I live right in the middle (near DFW airport). But, I will keep that in mind for the future, if we don't have another alternative! Lisa

    Anyone ever FedEx a bike?

    Thanks! I've had another friend tell me that they said they (American) would charge her, then they didn't. Gee...no wonder we were on the verge of bankruptcy :rolleyes: But...if they don't charge me, then no complaints, of course! Anyhow...where did you find a hard case for $250? Thanks...

    Anyone ever FedEx a bike?

    It looks like American (I have to fly AA) charges $80 (each way) to carry my bike...so, I thought I would try and FedEx it to my destination. The rate (according to FedEx's site) is about $45 each way. Anyone every do this? How did you package it up? I was thinking of putting it in a bike...

    Need recommendations for a travel bag

    Anyone find a great travel bag for their bike? I work for an airline and fly a lot. Now that I've started cycling, I want to take my bike with me - especially on longer trips or to go to rides. I'm not concerned about storing the bag when I arrive, since we'll likely travel somewhere, stay in...

    DFW #10 on the list of most polluted

    My route is 15 miles (each way); so it's a long trip. I ride from Grapevine to AA Headquarters (360 & 183)...and go mostly down 360. The hardest part is getting out of Grapevine (since I live close to the lake). I tried a route through the airport road (the road that goes completely around...

    Poll: Hating America

    I agree...poor sap (living in Houston - ick!). presented to sadaam by ??? THE U.N. (that's an N, not an S!). The U.N. inspections were working; if not, then where are the WMDs? Uh...yes...definitely serious. He needs much more polishing, but I totally agree with his ideals. Which is...

    Bush or Kerry or ???

    Just curious what everyone's political leanings are... I'm a Democrat; but if John McCain had been nominated in 2000, I would have easily voted for him. Lisa

    Poll: Hating America

    1. Dallas, TX 2. No 3. Of course not... All of that said; I do not agree with the war in Iraq. I'm a Democrat and will vote for Kerry (although...I really wish it had been Dean nominated, not Kerry). I don't think the U.S., or any sovereign nation, "deserves" to be attacked, occupied, or...

    DFW #10 on the list of most polluted

    I'll let you know about the fatigue factor. We haven't had an "ozone alert" day, yet; but they will come. I can completely understand why someone would feel fatigue, in that situation, though. Are you at all concerned that you are doing more damage to your lungs by riding in the pollution...

    Anyone use the Mag850 trainer?

    Just wondering what your opinions are? It has a remote tension adjustment (which sounds great) and is supposed to be quieter than the CycleOps. Thoughts? Lisa

    DFW #10 on the list of most polluted

    errgghhh.... I JUST started commuting on my bike this week; and today, the American Lung Assoc. names DFW as #10 on the most polluted cities. Looks like I won't be cycling in on "ozone alert" days...errggh...I guess I need to go shopping for a trainer, since I don't bike in on rain days...
