    How to encourage more cyclists to ride to and from campus?

    I've biked to/from/at school for a few years now, and that's definately not an easy question that you're proposing. One thing that helped me out was when I found out about the shower/locker facilities at school. It was really easy to get to school, go to the shower/lockers and put my stuff in...

    How fast to be before doing a cat5?

    As for my results, I don't think any of them are posted anywhere, I just found them out at the race venues. Road-wise I have only raced a couple of Cat 5's and a few triathlons. I placed a little higher than mid pack, generally around 10th or so in the cat 5's. In the better of the two tri's I...

    How fast to be before doing a cat5?

    Sparknote, I would say the best way to guage your ability is to get into some group rides of a handful of people or more. That way you can get used to riding with people around you and also know where you stand with some of the people that will be racing with you. I've done a few Cat 5's and I...

    If you shave your legs....

    Jergen's Shave Minimizing moisturizer. It really does work. I have been using it for about two years now, and I have noticed a significant difference in the way my hair grows back. It is definately finer than before, but you have to use it every day, otherwise your hair gets stiffer fast...
