So, what's you favorite?

Talk to (IIRC) Riceless for MC trails... I :dunno about bicycling trails. Big Bear is great for both. :nod

Very cool to see the children of people I knew back-in-the-day, (when they were kids:lol3 ) come good.
I saw an interview once of him and he sounded much like his mom and dad, very down to earth and together.

So I noted on my little odometer thing that I've ridden 300 miles in the last six weeks.

Yeah, yeah, I know, you Lance Armstrong types do 300 miles on your day off. Whatever.

I've ridden 300 miles on a crappy 15 year old mountian bike in plaid shorts and Chuck Taylors.

So screw you.

You got the wrong impression of us. If yer doing 50mi/week on that, yer a MUCH better man than the rest of us. :bow No shorts, no clipless pedals and shoes, no road bike (efficient), etc.

Nope. My hat's off to ya.

Now, if you'd go to PBS and get ye some bicycle shorts to go under the plaid jobbies, and maybe some pedals and cleats, THEN we'd :razor

I'm teasing you guys. :lol3

This thread is a must-see for me every day.

With new kids and big girls to drop off at school, I haven't been riding to work the way I was last year, but I do try to at least go out for a 10+ mile ride at lunch, at least four days a week.

It's all hills around here. Yesterday was a tough one, but it was a beautiful ride. I'd sure like another bike, but I just can't afford it right now, and I've certainly made good use of the bike I have.

Katie's out of school now, so I may start riding back and forth a couple of days a week again, too.
