Needs more options (secondary colour, and type/style of bike!). Mine will all end up being Sir/Commander/Baby/Professor/Duke/Doctor/etc Wicked Ninja.
I had enough trouble naming my kids, so... no...
Agreed... as usual :)
After reading about formal training programs/techniques/etc (this book) earlier this year, one of the biggest things I took away was the need for rest, and looking back at...
The bike part of my commute was as great as usual, but I decided to drive part way of it and that part was terrifying. It is possible to report a dangerously driving vehicle? A car up ahead was...
If you want to keep getting faster/stronger, at some point you have to look into more focused training. Day-to-day commuting on the same route has its limits, although with a HRM or better still, a...
Impromptu as in there's no designated organizer or team, but it's M-F at noon roughly. (I've never been to the Thurs night version.) And I don't want to exaggerate/misrepresent - it's not a full-on...
There's always Strava fly-by... http://labs.strava.com/flyby/viewer/#177104674 :)
FWIW I think the groups are impromptu/pick-up - whoever shows up, shows up, so they don't really split. Also the...
Yeah, I assume a lot of it is just getting used to it. I read the full version of this first article (in print) which sort of led me to believe a box bike wouldn't be the best choice for the hilly...
Steering and climbing? I don't know though, I haven't ridden a box bike much.
Just bring the other bikes you need with you!
Agreed, I think MacArthur groups + TNR FB loops have issues/controversy already too (that's why I said "To be fair, a lot of road/racing group rides do the same thing in DC." - it's not a HP specific...
Yeah I can't see it happening either. I don't really mind them having parking there, but when the volume gets ridiculous and tour buses are doing loops slowly taking up both lanes so they're not...
Yeah, I was once hopeful but that site hasn't been updated in a while, and doesn't look like it has much momentum.
It's not really about being asshats or people with bad intentions. It's just behaviour that is not safe or considerate to others, and as you say part of that comes from being a sizable group, going...
As long as it's done in a Gordon Ramsay Scottish accent, yes!
I've been on both sides of the coin, but I side with KLizotte on this one and agree with jabberwocky's points. The last time I was...
Thought someone might find this interesting. Possibly NSFW
Some really nice design concepts there. Would ride.
I'd like to ride Onion Valley one day too
It's insanity, but I must admit I have evaluated Dickey Ridge and Sugarloaf as possible options before. My conclusion was "no way", but I'd be happy to join a group effort to support the insane.
FWIW I wouldn't begin crossing with the countdown started already if there is traffic like that. I *might* if there are other trail users already in the intersection, though.
There's always this:
although as mentioned in the article, there's still some challenges that may make/break it.
Done and done.
Nice, I've always wanted to try a dualie hub! And a Spot in general, actually (mostly their Mod SSCX which is now the Rallye).
Yeah, CX racing (especially muddy/dirty courses) is known for being tough on parts - esp rear derailleurs, so you may not want to spend too much on the groupset. You can always upgrade a part of a...
