The Season Might Be Over, But There Is More Cycling To Do

The Season Might Be Over, But There Is More Cycling To Do

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...

Nice Cool Ride In October

Nice Cool Ride In October

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...

The Fall Is Here And So Is The Wind

The Fall Is Here And So Is The Wind

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...

Look What Came In The Mail Today!

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...

Fall Is Here! Get Out And Bike.

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.

Saturday Group Ride To The River And Back! 22.8 Miles!

Saturday Group Ride To The River And Back! 22.8 Miles!

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...

Learning To Ride In The Drops

Learning To Ride In The Drops

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...

Grounded While It Rains Outside

Grounded While It Rains Outside

I'm so frustrated. It's raining outside. It's coming down quite hard. So no more riding for me today. Only a quick 2 mile bike ride early this morning. Days like this make me want to investigate Zwift, the online community where you can continue to train while...
