I almost exclusively ride the bike trails. I can't enjoy riding a bicycle with motor vehicles buzzing around me. It's just blatantly unsafe and nerve racking. What ever problems I've experienced with...

Thank you.

I'll admit I don't know much about bikes outside of my old Huffy. I do my own repair and maintenance. The 2-3000 miles a year I've been put on my bike are dependable trouble-free miles....

My experience with small, inexpensive single layer tents is that they leak. When I'm serious about keeping myself and my gear dry, I use a tarp. I cut an inexpensive tarp to fit over my tent. I see...

I feel riding on a road is inherently dangerous and can't be made safe. I just can't control or predict what a motorist might or might not do at any given moment. I might think differently if I had...
