So it’s 40 days into the “Challenge”. I’m good so far. Minimum ride for me is 30 minutes with most days around 2 hours. My wife thinks I’m nuts, but you are all keeping me honest. “I can’t bail on the challenge!”.
A suburban Atlanta county commissioner plans to give up his attempt to ban cyclists on a popular local training route, instead seeking a rule requiring riders to travel single-file.
Local cyclists got involved after the story hit the media, and a committee suggested the single-file rule as a possible compromise after meeting Monday night. Cobb County’s Board of Commissioners will likely take up the as-yet-unfinished ordinance February 27th.
Cyclist Mark Gernazian, who served on the committee, said the cyclists have softened their insistence on their rights. “Trying to drive home our rights to the road was not going to create any harmony on Columns Drive,” he said.
Sent to us in a couple different emails, is the drinking bike. Fill that keg with Bike Hugger Brown, pedal around, singing drinking songs, and you’re having big bike fun!
Alternatively, you could put a keg in the middle of the conference bike, work out your team’s goals for the year while building a strong team dynamic – just don’t bogart that keg tap hommie.

Flats are the bane of commuters. I hate them - they can totally ruin a day. More than one on a ride is usually grounds for a good spell of screaming. After far too many of late (3), I stepped up to some new rubber: Ritchey Tom Slick w/Fortress Casing. They are SO thick. I could barely bend them into shape to get them to stay seated on the rim. I’m not so worried about weight or even “road feel”, but if they keep me flat free for a while - I’ll be a happy man.
