Donate Clunker Bike (and more)

I'm having to move across the country in about a month and have a bike I wish to donate; an old Centurian beater that needs some TLC. I also have a pair of older Shimano wheels that were very good...

I think part of the Lance/Alberto/Astana side show has been because there has been very little racing. This course is probably the most boring route in a quarter century, maybe longer, in any GT....

2 Seconds (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0158446/) is a good film about a downhill bike racer that gets cut from her team and becomes a bike messenger in I believe Montreal. The guy that plays the...

I'm afraid I'm more jaded than Brock. Not about Lance, but about pro cycling in entirety.

I've probably ridden up there as much as anyone...maybe. Let me see what I can share.

First, it's arguably the most beautiful place to ride in the state, or country, IMO. Super low traffic, great...

That's a bit of spin I'm afraid to say. Why? Because Chris conveniently left out the fact that fellow Spaniard Benjamin Noval, who rode well in support of Lance and Levi at the Giro, was left off the...

Full construction starts in one week (July 6th). If anyone is considering riding it, now's the time to go.

Looks like riding it from the east is much more accessible than the west, due to the...

Highway 30 to Skyline

Hi everyone. I haven't posted in here in aeons. Anyway, I made an animated video map showing the five climbs from Highway 30 up to Skyline Blvd. Pretty popular cycling roads, once your legs are up...

I would actually be more in favor of a voluntary system that is much more visible where funds could be donated to specific projects.

For example, an organization starts a fund to raise money to...

Interesting articles. Good point about riding on the sidewalk. It seems like one of those laws that as long as the rider is being safe and courteous, there's no problem. Are they really ticketing...

Sounds like a good intersection for the police to watch.

I once had someone yell at me to get out of the road when I was in a bike lane!

I'll answer the question.

I wear the helmet 98% of the time. The other 2%, like Brock, I skip the helmet when riding somewhere safe, slow, but mostly because very hot days, or I strap it to the...

While you may find a lot of areas less expensive here than in Boston, you can also expect to make way less money...if you can find a job in your field.

Even safer, and only 12-15 blocks east is the 205 bike path.

This is just opinion, but I feel that there was more harmony a few years ago than there is now. Massive development and growth,...

Do you know if this was a sting area set-up? Or just a bicyclist not obeying the law in front of a police officer?

At least that's a more high traffic area than the roundabout in Ladd's edition.

I agree with the idea of going out there early and riding a bunch of practice laps close to other riders. You can do the same thing at the Mt. Tabor races too, but PIR is the perfect place to get...

Good Lord. The PWTC obey the law almost to a T. They probably did track stands down to .01 mph and with no one coming, didn't put a foot down and rode on.

Road 1825 (and 1828 and 18) are now open, free of snow, in the event anyone wants to ride them. Expect debris this time of year though.
