That's an exaggeration, but yes, those factors are at play. This particular bike allows me to watch Netflix and other streamed shows as well as bike virtual tours of places like New York City or Las...

Good responses. I got vaccinated 12 days ago, so I'm definitely giving it some thought. I miss the group rides for the variety. If I attend 1-2 group rides a week, it will be more fun, and I'll get...

I've never worn gloves. Just figured they're more trouble than they're worth. 1. They cost money. 2. They get lost. 3. They have to be washed and taken care of. And what's the payoff? I know it's...
