I’m no expert, but… Many articles by experts offer deep science about body heat, fluids, and other stuff. And if all those numbers and matrices make you feel more confident, then, by all means, read the articles. As for me, I’m not an expert in physiology, but I’ve survived some... Continue reading

A new book: Keep Sharp: Build a Better Brain at Any Age I’ve always taken an active interest in the many ways I can keep my brain functioning at peak performance. Aerobic activity is one way. As some of you may know cycling is my favorite form of aerobic activity.... Continue reading

THE EXCLAMATION POINT at the end of the title above does not indicate any excitement on my part. I'm just being facetious. I'm somewhat ambivalent about the COVID vaccination. I don't care much for injections or medications of any kind, for that matter. I'm more inclined to live healthily and... Continue reading

There's a lot of things that must be just right to cycle in relative comfort, especially on long distances--saddle position, bike fit, clothing, etc. The more you ride the more you learn what works best for you. Best wishes on your ride next month! And thank you for your comments. Be safe out there!

I'VE MOVED AROUND A LOT during the past 25+ years. And back in the day, I bought a lot of books--business books, novels, biographies, classics, self-help, etc. My book buying slowed considerably about 10-years ago for two reasons. One, PDFs... Continue reading

TO: Mkadam68 I've never had that problem with "on your left!", but I can see how it might happen. "Rider back!" seems like a great solution. After all, the goal is crash avoidance! Thanks for your comments!

The cycling infrastructure in my city, Jacksonville, FL is improving, but at a painfully slow rate. I do like the separated bike lanes, but they don't always fit on legacy roadways. Thanks so much for your comments!

Thanks! And good point. Anyone riding on the road shouldn't automatically trust road markings. Engineers make mistakes. Painters make mistakes. Be wary. If it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't.

You are an inspiration! I too have disc problems and have had 3-fusions and 1 disc decompression surgery. Riding my bike is what keeps me going strong. I hope to ride for the rest of my life. I wish you the best, and please keep in touch. I'd love to follow along on your long ride. Ride on! And be safe out there! Lloyd

I have ridden in CO,UT,AZ,HI, and I miss those kinds of climbs. We have a few hills in central FL and in the panhandle, but the wind is my main resistance. Thanks for the comment!

Thanks Bob, for your comment and well-wishes. Yes, the thought of a recumbent has crossed my mind. I've even done some research. But so far, I've found my current bike (which was custom made for me) is still working out. But we'll see what the future brings.
