Depends on the ride. On road 100 miles doesn't usually last over 2 hours. Off road 100 miles can be an all day experience.

Hey, you had the first road right and had it quick.



I'm not a very active bicyclists anymore but when I was doing 100 miles a week it was just like how I ride motorcycles. I take it serious and road etiquette is #2 only after safety. So these bicyclist acting the way they did but a thorn up my ass because by ignoring traffic around them they endanger me and themselves. Might as well be dogs in the road. (Sorry Craig)

But who suggested we rename the road to the closed road sleeping dog lane? I thing we passed at least 6 dogs laying in the road.

One of you had a relative that had difficulty riding due to joint pain in or around the elbows? Send me a PM or Email and let me know what it was he/she did to ease the pain, it would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,

Michael

PM Bueller. I believe he battled that for a long time.

PS Scott, I think you would have really enjoyed todays ride. Might have tested your gravel riding skills but the broken pavement sections and twisties would have been fun on the GS.

bicycles on Three Locks

elbows
Trying to determine if I even know the difference anymore if I ever did.

Bicycles; the people on Three Locks are training for TOSRV, it's mothers day weekend. For many of them it's their only real road ride all year and they are used to having the entire route to themselves. For me, single file, about 2 feet off the white edge line, hold my line and hold my lane. If you get over too far to the right, people get the idea they can pass you even if there is an oncoming car. If they have to slow down for a second, it's just too bad. That's assuming they even see you of course. If they don't see you, it doesn't matter where you are.

Elbows; both elbows sore?

Great meeting and riding with everyone yesterday. Here's a short video of that road.

That would be my bike sliding backwards on it's kickstand at the end of the video.

Snob Alert.

This would explain extreme variety of equipment quality and safety gear these people were wearing. Some looked they had just ridden out of the KOA campground.

Alert over.

That Strom was worried that we were trying to plot a route through that and was trying to get away.

It had a right to worry.

OK, I'll admit I suffer from the "that guy never rides" or "his bikes are too clean" syndrome.

Loaded



At Crow....far right. (Solace was there too)



Dinner on the way home....with dirty bike as proof.

My favorite rider was about the fifth person we passed. He was an old guy wearing a fishing cap riding an ancient, rusty, upright 3-speed pedaling twice as fast as the "posers" in lycra shorts and on carbon framed bikes. That dude was awesome. -Mike
