Thanks, bob, for alerting me to the fact there's a bicycling board! As an avid cyclist, I'm delighted to see that it's pretty active. Gotta spend me some time noodling about.

OT: It's been more active before two or three persons got into a long and multiple post argument on the need for helmets. Like politics, an important topic in which there is no changing minds can suck the life out of a fun board IMO.

Also OT, I'm trying to get back into shape after a) aging, and b) retiring from my commute back and forth between NJ and Charlottesville, VA for 10 years (600 miles round-trip about each week). So DW and DD hired me a trainer and we're discussing goals. Trying to be a tiger going threw old boxes to throw away junk we found a picture of when I met DW in 1979 as I passed running a half-marathon. I was 6'4" and about 170 pounds (a stick). DW decided THERE's my goal -- lose 80 pounds. As an alternative and to quote the song "I'm gonna miss her." [laugh]

I ran until the knees went out and then turned to the bicycle after weight gain. We do 25-50 miles a day every weekend at not an "avid" pace. Hope to do more now. For vacations, without kids, we've cycled some of the prettiest places on the planet. Oregon, the California coast, Nebraska and Iowa, Florida and Virginia (the DC and Northern Virginia trails are outstanding). Internationally we've got great pictures of us cycling Versailles and the streets of Paris (very bicycle friendly city). But we love our central New Jersey flat back roads, the beach, and trips to NYC and Philadelphia.

Here's the site:
