    Got Passed By A Fast Cyclist

    I usually ride my hybrid about 17-18 mph with bursts of 20-21 mph. Usually the only ones that pass me are guys on expensive road bikes and if I peddle hard I can stay with them for a mile or so. The other day I saw someone coming up on me fast while I was going about 20mph during one of my fast...

    What's Up With All The People In Racing Suits And Expensive Bikes?

    I started riding bikes again after twenty years of a break. Now it seems like every other person has more money in their bike outfits than I do in my bike ($650 bike). On my Hybrid I fly by groups of these riders with ease- usually cruise around 18mph these days. Only have had a couple people...
