Gregory Porter and Dara Tucker are playing #Nashville this weekend. Can't wait for the show. Should be a great night for #Jazz fans thanks to #Lovenoise and TPAC. Tickets: https://wls.io/asalvew

Got a hybrid bike for my birthday. Gonna use it as a commuter. No more driving to work. Well, maybe not if it snows. Any tips on keeping a suit from getting super sweaty?

Look for a gym near your office and see if they have a super basic membership that just lets you use the showers and locker room. I've done that for about $30 per month. Get the best ride you can, then be comfortable and clean in the office.

Someone told me about a service where you send the bike to a local bike shop, and then it is disassembled and sent to a bike shop near your destination then reassembled. Anyone familiar with this?

Yes. I do this with a recumbent tadpole trike.

Road biking newbie seeking cycling tech advice.  I currently use my iPhone running Strava connected to my Trek Madone 2.1 using a Topeak stem mount. I also use a Polar H7 heart rate monitor and Wahoo Blue SC speed/cadence sensor. Both connect to Strava via Bluetooth.  Seeking feedback on these questions.  Thanks!
1. Are bike computers worth it?  I'm looking at a Garmin Edge 500, but it only supports Ant+.  They have a bundle with the HRM and speed/cadence sensors.
2. Instead of a bike computer, would a GPS watch be a better option?  If so, are any Bluetooth or Ant+ compatible?
3. Should I just stick with my existing setup and use my Mophie external battery pack for iPhone charging on longer rides?

A GPS receiver can be used for other things but also has many functions a bike computer has.

Easy enough to do yourself. Bike shops will often give (or sell) you a bike box.

Garmin 500 or 510 FTW. You get a much more accurate GPS & altitude, much better battery and you can use it in the rain. Save your phone battery in case you need to call for help.

Perfectly located on Mead's Bay. Quite beachfront property with access to local restaurants and resorts. Nice swiMing pool with ocean view. Rooms are well-kept with updated appliances. Great for multi-day stays. Walking distance to Best Buy grocery store if you prefer to cook in lieu of eating out.
