Bath and shower with your bike

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 21:02:27 GMT

Warm enough, today, to soften the ice on my trails enough for the studded tires to grab, so had a good hour of riding on the Norco Bigfoot. Also warm enough for the clear sections to turn into mud, so finished the day by giving the Norco a sponge bath. Image: ...

I'd like to start off by mentioning that it has been a couple of years since I've been on the blog. That said, I am wondering if I am somehow "jinxed". It started back in 2009, I got the bike bug back, so went out and purchased a "flat bar" road bike as I was having neck issues. I somehow...

Need to replace Sheila Moon Shorts with?

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 18:53:51 GMT

Hi, I am in need of new bike shorts. I have been riding in Sheila Moon Carbon Shorts for the last 8 years or so. What I like: the V waist band and non rubber or gripper legs. Sheila Moon seems to have stopped production. Shebeast have never fit right and their return policy is horrible. Pearl...

Hi everyone!

I'm Angela, I'm pretty brand new to road cycling. I've never really found a form of cardio I enjoyed until I started cycling. I just got a trek emonda WSD 4 and I'm so excited. Can't wait to learn from all of you!

Allergy shots?

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 20:41:07 GMT

I haven't been to the allergist in a while. The one I used to see has retired, so I went to a new one today. Really just wanted to establish as a patient and ask a couple of questions. I have asthma, which has been treated for years by a pulmonologist who I really like, chronic idiopathic hives and...

Haven’t posted since the beginning of the year because of health issues. Learned a lot the last two months about determination and faith…..AND that bicycling has some wonderful psychological/mood benefits (especially on days of unremitting fatigue from chemo)….and that it gives needed mental and...

Any good stories? Any defense techniques? Any ideas on how to get men to understand that trying to start a conversation/shouting random comments at a woman from your car only makes me wonder whether I can reach my stun gun or my pepper spray faster?

My sensitive stomach

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 23:41:51 GMT

Some of you may recall the medical odyssey I went on, about 10 years ago, with a variety of symptoms, mostly GI and others, just too diffuse to write about here. MY rheumatologist said I had fibromyalgia, but I still do not totally believe it, as I never had any of the "brain fog," or total...

March Rides: In Like a Lion or a Lamb?

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 22:29:41 GMT

March definitely came in like a lamb today in the Orlando area -- a very hot and sticky lamb, and less windy than the past few days. We finally broke down and turned on the A/C for the first time this year. Supposed to be cooler by Friday and for the weekend, which is fine with me. I'm not ready...
