We should make ourselves look like smartphone screens. I bet they'd see us then.
You may be on to something... We should make a jersey that looks just like an iPhone screen. Then 40% of drivers will see us, but 10% of them will wave dismissively and say to get an Android phone.
If gravity is the weakest of the fundamental forces, why is it so gawddamned hard to pedal my ass uphill?

Holy schnikees! :huh
Glad to see the guy that took the brunt of it able to walk off. It looked really bad getting folded up the way he did.
that motorcycle rider looked like a total beginner. he had no control on that turn, and when he hit the first bike, he had his feet off the pegs and forward like they were going to stop him.
I really wish we didn't let total beginners get on 650 or 1000cc supersport bikes without some serious training first. yes, I know, that was probably a SV650, not exactly a supersport, but still a pretty serious motorcycle.
I think someone needs to find another hobby instead of motorcycling...:eek1
I did my first century today. I'm pretty happy with it, 15mph moving average. The weather's been so crappy this spring I only had less than 200 road miles altogether, so I increased my mileage by over 50%. I was pretty careful about eating and drinking and we made five supported rest stops with snacks and bevereages. I didn't have any problems with cramps , but there was a 15mph wind out of the south that KICKED my ass, I felt really good on the hills early on, but the wind just beat me down . The last 29 mile loop sucked, and on paper it should have been the easiest, but my ass was dragging. Anyway, I've finally got a century under my belt.

Congrats on your first century 2whl-hoop. To finish with no cramps means you did it right.
This has been THE worst weekend all year in terms of weather. The rain has been relentless and it never really warmed up.
Target fixation, no excuse for such sloppy riding.
that looks expensive :-O
Great job! Once you do the first one, you realize that you can do more of em. Pretty soon you'll be like K7 and head out to do brevets!
shoot me now...
I feel like I've been beat with a , run over by a :dllama frozen like a and out to rot...
Most brutal day on a bike... ever!
Full report to follow as soon as I get my joints and brain working in unison again.
Just for a teaser; here is a before and after shot of the bike:
@Ridge: so when's the next one?!
That must have been rough! You even lost a fork leg out there!!!
Congrats. It's a heck of an accomplishment to do a century. When I do them, I just use it as an excuse to eat non stop. I attack aide stations. Hahaha
Itching to get myself a carbon framed bicycle. Not wanting to spend over $1000 so it will be used. I have found the following in or near my price range locally.
2010 Cannondale Synapse 4
2007 Specialized Roubaix comp
2008 Specialized Roubaix
2012 Specialized Tarmac mid compact Apex
Not in a huge hurry. Anyone have experience with the above? Or know of a reason to run away from them ?
thanks in advance
