So I just bought a used trainer for my bike. It's going to be great for the winter when I can't get out riding. Since it's "new," I've been using it the past few days to get the hang of it. It's not the same as riding a bike, but it's not bad though. It still kicks...
Many people call this time the off season for cycling. It's starting to get cold and cyclists are moving indoors onto their trainers. But in fact, this is the prefect time to be riding outside. The leaves are changing, the air is brisk, the riding is good when you're...
Today's ride was a solid one. 12.9 miles good riding and a nice bite in the air. I definitely feel that all my cycling is making me stronger and healthier, which I need since I tend to eat quite a bit on the weekends. Especially at birthday parties. I'm still testing...
So we're due to get a hurricane or a tropical storm in the next day or so. That explains the amount of wind out there. My God it's windy. Today I ended up just doing a circuit for 4 miles around the neighborhood. Wish I could have done more, but something is better...
I'm lucky enough that companies send me stuff to test out and review. The latest goody that I got to test and try out is the Garmin Edge 520 cycling computer and GPS. I just got it today and hooked it up. I took it out for a quick spin and so far it's great. I'll post...
Today I went out for a short 4.6 mile ride. I felt like I needed to get back on the bike, since I barely did any riding last week and none this weekend. Fall is in the air and I want to get my outside riding in before it gets too cold. Here's my quick route: It's...
Fall is by far the best time to bike. The leaves are changing on the trees and it's not blistering hot. At least not where I am. I can't wait to get out on my bike tomorrow. Can't today, it's Yom Kippur. All for now.
Hey all, I've created a team for the Tour de Cure. The Bipedal Diabetes Killers. The American Diabetes Association ride to find a cure to Diabetes. You can donate and/or join, we'd love your support and to have you on our team. On a completely, but somewhat related,...
So today I went out with Eric, Cycle Sports, and his two customers Jim and Brenda. We rode to the Delaware River and back. It was such a great ride. I doubled the amount of miles I normally do by double. I'm a little sore because of crappy bike pants that are 15 years...
So today was an amazing day for a ride. I decided to push myself and headed north of town up the ridge. I did some great hills and had some great downhills. I'm trying to get used to riding on the drop handle bars and not staying up on the hoods. It's challenging as I...
