I have been hit by a car while riding three times.  The first time was before bike helmets and I was riding on the sidewalk.  The other two times I was in a bike lane.  In each instance I was injured and one of those times my steel bike was busted.  In each instance my head was the only body part not injured or hit.  Better drivers ed and respect will go much further to preventing injuries than a plastic hat.

Great video, great tips.  Most of these I can attest to be true from my own experience

No autoshfifting, no electronic shifting.  If moving my forefinger and thumb gets to be to much I think that I will just to have to lay down in the grave.

You might also enjoy the Clarksville Sunrise Century, also in TN.  It is very well supported, it is very flat and very fast.

I love GCN, it is one of the best things on the internet.  I love all things bikes and ride as much as I can.  I love watching pro racing but I just ride.  I don't know what my FTP is and don't care.  I do geek out on bike mechanics, Thank you for these videos that show me things that I might not already know.  This is what makes GCN great, there is something for everyone.

Where are you all riding in this video.  It's quite beautiful.

In the hills above Nice, specifically at the top of the Col d'Eze. You're right, it's stunning there.

You mentioned the GCN bottle, how would one get their hands on one?

+Richard W. Rouse You've got to watch the GCN Show to see if you can win one at the moment.

I have commuted to work by bike for years.  I have ridden the fast road bike the whole distance on main roads, taken the MUP and also done the bike/train or bike/bus combo.  I live in a hilly area in the southern U.S. and my commute is 20 miles one way or 32 kilometers. It can get quite hot, humidity is a factor as is rain most of the year. To ride the whole distance, either on the fast bike via main roads or relaxed bike on MUP, I need to be able to shower when I get in.  For me the bike / train combo works best.

I enjoy your blog, great video too.  I think there are better choices of music though.

Sorry ... I pick music I like that goes with the visuals. Any suggestions for the next video?
