    I rescind my comment in my response to Sunyata: Cat 5 it is -- never road raced. Either way I'm looking forward to it; I s'pose I can wait a month or so for the boards to come back!

    I've started to make this somewhat of a game, especially when it's a group of folks and/or the MUP is crowded. I do what I call the "airline pilot" which goes something like: " Mornin' folks. Wanna...

    Yeah, I'm hoping that's the case -- word I'm getting is that we have enough room for a coat or two plus our service dress. It may just work out better to travel straight to the gym with...

    First of all, I'm so sorry about the crash and your prolonged loss of mobility and the trauma that goes with it all. But the good news is that your mobility is restored and I'm sure you're grateful...

    JQCyclist got the best shot of my calves in action that I think I'll ever see in this lifetime! All vanity aside, it was a great video. If I was someone who was on the fence about riding into work, I...
