    One Thing You Can't Help But Carry With You On A Bike

    For me I always have to carry water with me when I go out on my bicycle. I live in South Texas and the heat here can be pretty extreme sometimes.

    febreze, am I the only one?

    Hello everyone! My name is Jorge Solis. No, you are not alone! I do the same thing with my soccer uniform. The dryer at my parents' house is not working properly, so it takes longer to dry our clothes than usual. My solution to this problem is to not wash my dirty clothes. I just wear them again...

    Hello everyone! My name is Jorge Solis.YES! I am addicted to chips and salsa! I know it is really not a healthy habit at all, but I can't help eating them all the time, especially when I am bored and watch TV.

    Riding with no hands

    Hello everyone! My name is Jorge Solis. I was once riding with no hands and I was not going fast enough so the front wheel of my bike actually turned and I had an accident. Since then, I think that riding with no hands is too risky and should be avoidable at any cost. What do you guys think?

    Do I Need To Refuel For Rides Under 1 Hour ?

    Hello everyone! This is a good question. However, I do not think that you have to refuel after only about an hour of cycling. Keep in mind that you are supposed to be eating a nutritional diet on a regular basis. If this is the case for you, then riding for an hour should feel like a breeze!
