I do think cycling is the best overall exercise that you can do as far as abuse on your body is concerned... this holds try as were all are getting older :nod

Hell, I have not been able to jog for years... plays hell on my knees :cry

Screw my bad lower back, I bit the bullet and just did 20 in one hour.

Park was so crowded it was like an obstacle course though, I almost sliced a little blonde jogger gal in half....:huh

I thought of your "40 in 2 hrs" post to keep me cranking.:1drink




I find when I'm riding solo I have only one speed,

And that's faster than the guy in front of me, no matter how much it hurts!

slow down, smell the roses, talk to the little blonde jogger. :lol3

I going to take a ride this evening--about 2-3 hours--on my touring bike. On that heavy thing there will be no bustin my ass--just a nice easy ride.

It's amazing how much I have found on the slow easy rides.
Just a little of the stuff:
16" set of channel locks
3' of new 3/16" chain
1 new rat tail file
combination set of wire cutter and stripper
12" aluminum pipe wrench
new 3' crow bar
money
keys
2 pair of alligator cowboy boots (good condition)
pliers
countless tarp straps
punch
and lots of other crap.

Anyone else find much on rides?

Saw a set of needle-nose pliars go by at about 28mph (hey, it was slightly downhill and 3 out of 5 of us are clydes) on my Saturday morning ride. Didn't want to disrupt the paceline to stop and get 'em. :rofl

I have.

There's LOTS of Pro cyclist/triathletes in Sandy Eggo. It ain't uncommon to ride with Gold medal winners, etc. There's some SERIOUSLY fast individuals where I've been.

Rode with one pro that was joining the Seals. Fucker had one speed. Don't remember what it was, but it was farging FAST. Not quite 30mph IIRC. Held that uphill, downhill, headwinds, etc. Towed a few of us around the back side of Quantico for a while that day. It was easy to get him by varying the speeds... :evil He didn't have the jump that crit racers do.

I've been doing this so long that if someone wants to go faster and I'm on an easy day, I just (mentally) wave buh-bye. I've got a pretty set training plan lots of times and if going fast ain't on the agenda, I don't go fast. Period. My slow is getting quicker. :augie That's what riding more'n 1x week'll do to ya.

sockets, screwdrivers, money, misc this and that. I tend to not pick stuff up unless its something I can use.

I WILL throw stuff off the road if I see something sharp when stopped at a stoplight. Its a karma thing.
