A great way to promote cycling in camel country.......make way for the Ferrari driving hypocrites
The laws are aimed at regulating the use of bike tracks and lanes to make them safer, and promoting cycling as part of a healthier lifestyle.

I'm thinking about venturing off into the realm of home bicycle repair/adjustment. I ride a Specialized Roubaix SL2 with a Shimano 105 group set. Does anyone out there with the 105 find themselves having to make frequent adjustments to keep the drive train flowing smoothly? Or is it that my LBS did a complete tear down/cleanup and things just need tweaked a bit.

I guess I should have asked what we were really talking about. That kind of stuff is just having a bike. If it's consistently a real problem though something is off. The 105 gruppo isn't a fussy gruppo.

Hello. I'm searching for a starter road bike possibly used for under $1000. This would be my first road bike. Should u try to go with a straight road bike or cross bike? Something with little wider tire. Do you all have any suggestions?

Thanks!

As a follow-on to last weekend's crazy climbing ride, this weekend I did a flat one. Very flat for me. Did a loop from downtown to a local place called Sauvie Island. I decided to treat the whole thing like a time-trial and ended up doing pretty well, riding faster than I thought I would. 33 miles, 700 feet of climbing, and I averaged 19.2 mph (the Garmin actually showed 19.5). For the non-city part of the ride (no lights, stop signs, etc.) I averaged almost 21mph. Cool! Strava link:

+Rob actually I'm a much better rider in many ways. I'm more patient, can suffer much, much more, and I don't get worked up over stupid things that happen on the road. So that stuff is good. Just need those young legs and lungs and I'd be unstoppable! ;)

(I'm talking strictly about cycling here.) :-)

Hey guys.. I just came across this and am going to start using it for plotting and planning my routes. I wanted to share with everyone since it is free.

Free route planner to map, measure and share walking, running and cycling routes, with directions and elevation profiles. Plot your bike rides, runs and walks worldwide.

If only one of these services would work with google maps so I could get turn by turn directions once I've mapped a route.

Duathlon this morning turned out pretty well. No tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, or torrential rains. Just wet roads caked in farm mud and 15-20 mph winds. What a blast!

Due to the likelihood of all the above I opted for the road bike over the Tri bike. I'm grateful for the result.

Washed her down afterwards. Muddy bike is no bueno.

H-63,DP - 55, W - W8, MRT - 87.8. Second time in a week riding the big loop. This time I rode counter clockwise (harder). Considering this time last year I was in hospital awaiting emergency surgery I am happy with my recovery. The weather was nice with light clouds and only moderate humidity. All in all, a damn fine day HOOAH.
I rode with MapMyRide+! Distance: 47.82mi, time: 02:59:07, pace: 3:45min/mi, speed: 16.02mi/h.

That's a bit more more than just "steady" riding there my friend. ;-)

Confusion! Thanks for the warning council but the sticker in the middle is the more applicable part despite the colorful language.

I've pounded a fist against the side of an idiot's vehicle on more than one occasion. And I've definitely done my share of cursing, gosh darn it!

Three rides this week that I haven't posted. 

On wednesday I went out and managed to catch some teammates doing laps on a local hill. They actually have a race that follows the same route though it's not something I've got any plans to do. I was surprised by how short the loop is and by the hill not being particularly steep. Kind of interesting to do a bunch of laps of it but I won't go so far as to say I loved it. Mostly just felt like the kind of training you do because you need to rather than an enjoyable ride that is also training. It was nice getting out with the team though. At the end of this ride I hadn't done much mileage so I went back to try and get the KOM I talked about from the other day. Once I had to restart because a car turned in front of me and I had to stop. The second run I absolutely demolished it but it turns out you've got to get through the light at the end to trigger the end of the segment. I'll have to try again. https://www.strava.com/activities/290801631

Second ride was supposed to be a rollers ride on friday night. A buddy/teammate called and wanted to hit the bar though so I obliged. Had two whiskeys and didn't get home till 2am so no rollers that night. Next day as soon as my wife got home I went out and made amends for the missed rollers ride with two laps of the hill behind my house. I thought on the first run it was going to be faster than my best time but I actually missed it by 8 seconds. Second lap was unremarkable and by the end it was getting dark and starting to rain so I headed home. https://www.strava.com/activities/292586043

Then today I had a scheduled meeting with a guy who rides fixies, although he has a geared road bike also, and had suggested a ride with a bit of gravel. I was nervous about that as I ride 23mm wheels and I've not had good luck on gravel roads. It turns out though that it's a fire road that I've actually hiked quite a bit with my family and it's not really gravel. More like old pavement with a bit of small gravel and a bit of dirt. If I had been asked ahead of time if I could do it I would have said no but it was actually no problem and it was an absolutely amazing ride! Totally gorgeous, no traffic (closed road), and fantastic climbing. I'll definitely do it again and I can't wait to show it to other people. Alas, we were doing our work and I did not take any pictures but I assure you it's a beautiful place to ride. He was great to ride with although riding behind him on the descents made me a bit nervous. He knows how to handle it though. An impressive thing to watch!

After the climbing on Saturday then today my knee is a bit sore but not too bad. Also, anyone have any suggestions for toes going numb? It's kind of always happened to me but it's getting a bit annoying. I've had two fittings, two different shoes, different types of pedals, different saddles, and even done some experimenting with moving the cleats as far towards the center of my foot as possible. Nothing seems to make any difference. If there was something I could do to get the blood flowing when it starts to happen that would likely be best because it doesn't take long to get feeling back.

It totally counts - you were out there racing. Best of luck with the rest of the season.

The same happened at the shop, this guy came in and said, that he thought it was a little branch stucked in the spokes so it will just go away, and kept riding, well it wasn't! the ignoramus had to walk miles back :)

I looked at the 2014 version a few months ago but at the time the 2015 model want around. In the end I liked the boa adjuster better but was a big fan of the feel of the shimano shoes. Congrats.
