I refuse to ride on the road with the idiots that can't put their phones down. I'll stick to my 4.5 mile mountain bike trail that I can ride after work. Takes 40-45 minutes to make the loop and my heart rate averages 160ish, that'll work for me.

I understand completely, I always ride with a group and itís easier to see groups than a single rider.

Rode the Flume trail above Lake Tahoe yesterday with my dad. Awesome views and great downhill after the 4 mile climb.

Default Hotter'N Hell Hundred

Hey guys, we've got a few spots left in the Official Pace Group at Hotter'N Hell.

Coupon code "TBH" will get you 15% off.

Registration link is here: https://www.bikereg.com/pacegroup

What is the Pace Group? First we finish the 100-mile endurance ride in under 5 hours, so if a sub-5 century is on your bucket list, this is the ride for you! (And drafting in a pack is an easy way to do it!)

Second, we do it in style:
15-minute head start ahead of the crowds.
Full support including domestiques*, lead and follow cars, and escort motos.
Air-conditioned Finish Line Lounge, including food and drinks (read: beer).
Custom Hincapie jersey.
Free event photos from our photographer.

*What does a domestique do? Those are the helpers in the Tour, so we will ride tempo on the front, keep you supplied with water bottles, and stop and change your flat and get you back in the group.

It's a great way to ride HHH. This is our 9th year, we've sold out every year, and many of our riders come back year after year.

Let me know if you have any questions.

If anyone needs a back up bike (or has an itch for an upgrade), I just bumped up my Trek Domane in the Classifieds. Good luck at HHH.

You ever consider having police escort? If you have 10 riders in your group, have every one chip in $5 or so, and have an off duty officer follow you with his lights on. I'd pay for a safe ride. I guarantee you your group will grow and then you will enjoy cycling again.

Tip for the mountain bikers, keep a master link with you. I had a nice long walk last night. Bike shoes are not good for walking. KMC x-10 chain was a month and half old.

I think Iíll go find a beer.

Nope. I simply donít have a gear for that. I have buddies that can hop sideways up the hill but I donít possess that skill.

This photo was taken after I walked up the very hill to which you refer.

I consider it a good thing as it forces me to practice my free mount. Riding the 36 inch tire is pretty easy. Jumping on from a standstill and making it go is difficult.

Thanks but anyone can ride a one wheeler. The first trick is wanting to. The second is being stubborn and believing you can do it. Cross those two barriers and youíre in.

Thereís a zen side to it thatís very appealing. You canít ever completely lose focus. Unlike cycling, you never completely master it.

The constant learning curve is very cool.

Next year I am doing the Colorado trail ride from Denver to Durango with a couple of buddies. It is a bike pack trip with camping under the stars. We will take ten days to travel the 565 miles. I just got a guide book in today. I have two more books on order. There is over 375 miles of single track along this route and there are plenty of refit spots along the way. I am stoked.

Can anyone guide me towards a group of older riders in Houston, preferably mountain bike. I'm headed to 60 on the next go round. I broke out my old Moab this June and have been peddling since. I've lost 20, put my heart rate at 55 at a rest and dropped my BP to 118/68. Be nice to have some folks to ride with though. I live north central, just outside 610 but have bike, will travel.

I'll ride with young bucks too but I don't want anyone's feelings to get hurt...
Like mine

Default New bike day...It's been a while.

Last bike I bought/built was 6yrs ago. Figured a lot has changed since then and it was time to upgrade.

Introducing my 2018 Transition Scout. It's 27.5+ and ready for some action. If the rain would stop long enough for the trails to dry up.

Good luck to Jet Black today as he tryís to qualify for Kona. Heís doing a tri in Maryland. Preacher man is tracking him and I believe he is 6th overall and 3rd in his age group about to start his run.

Then you're a tougher man than I am...that place kicked my arse.

I'm hoping to go back in the next day or so...
