    Carless Day

    I think it's half laziness & half fear that the ride will tamper with the quality of work you get from yourself/your employees. Of course, that's just sheer ignorance but you can't fix that the easy way I've noticed. If anything you would think people would realize that it gets your juices...

    Anyone use Gatorade G2?

    I tend to use the Powerade Zero as well. However, I'm not a fan of the Splenda in it. Or anyone sugar substitute really. Someone suggested I drink coconut water as well but I'm hoping I can find one without any added sugar. Suggestions?

    Your Charity Ride Experience

    I've never organized one personally but I have participated in quite a few. I enjoy it. I especially love when I'm sponsored by people I dislike. I make it a point to ride until I cannot move my legs anymore. Getting the positive out of the negative. :D

    What Is Your Alternative Activity For Cycling?

    I wish I could say it was running but how I hate thee ridiculous leg to pavement moving. I saw someone mention team sports & sports in general. That's really my go to for exercise. The worst part of that though is gathering the group together. Drives me insane to have to pump up the group. Thus...

    What do you reply when somebody says "I hear you're a good cyclist"

    My response? "I hear you're a good conversationalist! ..." Then hold this face & say nothing for twenty minutes until they walk away:

    FELLOW AMERICANS I HAVE A QUESTION.

    Personally, I've found cab drivers (honestly, the one's with the most to lose if you consider the cost of a medallion but i digress) are the WORST at understanding the law. They are also particularly aggressive as if I were carrying a rickshaw as I rode to steal their customers. It's always...

    Does Anyone Else Like Night Bike Rides?

    To answer the first question: Awwwww, yea. I prefer it to riding in the day in every way possible. Far less traffic, better tempeatures, night creatures (human & not), & a blanket (sometimes) of stars as you ride. Always been my preferred time to ride. Regardless of possible criminal activity...

    Some Drivers Are Just Stuck In The Past...

    This reminds me of the eternal 'who is worse' arguments had between drivers & cyclists. It happens. You have to be able to let it go. Retaliation is the worst thing to do. I speak from the side of the dummy who did dramatic things only to suffer consequences. Drivers & cyclists sometimes need to...

    Knee Pain But Not When I'm Riding

    Might be best to incorporate more aggressive stretching before participating in either tennis or cycling. It works great for me. I've experienced that issue with my left knee & solely when I'm not moving. In motion there's no pain whatsoever but when I'm still it's like a pulsating nusance. I...

    Dry Skin On Feet After Riding

    Can I suggest O'Keefe's Healthy Feet or their Working Hands brand of cream? It works wonders for my guy who suffers the same issue you mentioned.

    Can I Take Up Professional Cycling At 27?

    It's rare to jump professionally into ANY sport at that age. Even golf & that's the sport of Hoverrounds. I won't say it's impossible. If you think you're capable of competing against those younger & professionally linked for some time, go for it. The worst that can happen is you find it's too...

    How Hot Is Too Hot?

    I really don't live in ana area where it gets crazy town hot. I mostly deal with snow & rain through the year. ESPECIALLY this year. However, I imagine I could not possibly find myself riding a bike in Qatar on their hot days. I couldn't imagine moving in that type of temperature.
