Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Thanks, but no thanks. I keep a pair of 28mm gators for back up. I really dislike the way they ride.

Well, I'm not sure it seems like last week, but it sure as hell doesn't seem like 50 damn years ago!! Then again, I remember arriving in the Bay Area in time for the first big El Nino winter after the drought of the 70s, AND the first Super Bowl the 49ers won with Joe Montana as QB.

He has more but the $20 price was for me. He's selling a pair to another guy for $30 each.

It was me and they were $20 each.

I'll agree on cheap beer, but the wear dimples on the tire are still quite distinct - it has a lot of miles left, probably close to 1k, as datlas said. The squaring isn't that bad and, on a rear tire, is irrelevant. I wouldn't toss a $20 tire with that much life in it, let alone one that's $50+

As of 15 minutes ago, a woman named Nicole Reist is still leading RAAM. I think she's almost 200 miles ahead of second place. Long way to go yet.

I think my friend, a pro sailor who I recommended as a last minute substitute for this race, has talked the owner into some significant gear upgrades. If that happens over the winter I will probably do some racing on her next season in preparation for another go at Newport-Bermuda.

Friday, we did a nice little 45 or so miles, a couple k of climbing. Nice.
Saturday. I'll start off by stating I was the weakest climber of my group. But I never put a foot down. I made it up both Stiener Hill and the wall. It wasn't pretty but I did it. I would like to credit the guys I ride with for motivating and waiting for me. Great bunch of guys.
134 miles and 9600 ft. I set 48 achievements and 20 0f those are personal records. The best part...No cramping. It would appear I am doing better with my hydration plan.

I may live to regret that decision. Most of my friends are only doing 100.
If you don't regret it in the short term, post ride. It wasn't epic enough.

I assumed that but found it interesting. Since Trek has a team in the TDS-W. There's a couple interesting things here. 1. Will Jolanda finish higher than her Trek teammates? 2. Will she ride to help a Trek rider if needed or vice versa?

Maybe, but I felt really good at 100 and kept it at that. Not epic. How was yours??

Shopping for bike shorts. Lower tier though. If I'm going back to spandex I should have more than the one ancient pair

The Black Bibs are apparently very good value, for your consideration.
