We had to take a PE class at Auburn and the culmination of the class included a week there where we had to kill a chicken and prepare it for supper with rice and potatoes, do some rappelling and perform other outdoor stuff.

I didn't own a car so I got someone in the class to carry my camping stuff and I rode there and back. It was about 85 miles if I recall.

The race organizers were talking about a Grand Fondo the next day (Sun) 115 miles and close to 10k of climbing. that's a whole lot of climbing

Tubular tires

Anyone riding on these? Is there any noticeable performance advantage?

The touring is $250 and the 1000 is going to be $600......

I will look into it, but I think it will have a lot of bells and whistles I will not use.

Try rinsing the affected area with Tecnu while in the shower. It's the only stuff that works for me.

This does seem to be a trend... prehaps you should look into riding with a full tyvek body suit.

Man I feel for you. Before we had topical ointments that actually work, I used to burn the poison ivy pustules with a red hot safety pin after scrubbing them with Clorox. I'll take pain over relentless itching any day.
