If you have padded cycling shorts, don’t wear underwear underneath.

Hard to make out, but that looks like Cyrillic lettering on the cop car. Those cops just got a lot more ominous.

Not by much if that's a picture of winter.

Well when I'm moist, I can't focus on my driving, can you?

Exactly. When I'm moist, I'm focused on a) where am I moist and b) why am I moist. Definitely not paying attention to any incidental traffic circles.

Just so you know OP, it's "en masse" (in a single body or group; as one; together), not "in massed".

Ironically, a loan word from French.

FIFA doesn’t run the Olympics. That’s an entirely different set of corrupt old men.

It helps if you picture the alternative correctly. Sitting in a car, sipping a coffee and listening to the radio sounds great, but that's not really reality. Locked in traffic with a few thousand others, none of whom want to be there, a lot of whom are still half asleep, and a very few of whom are likely armed and filled with homicidal rage, reminds me that the worst day on the bike is better than the best day in the car.

And neither of them compare to a day on the couch.

haha, for me, it's not the hill, it's that damn afternoon west wind. Like today for example, about to get some serious training in...

D) all of the above.

Still, Tuscany is an almost perfect commute. Long enough to be a good workout, mostly on separated paths away from traffic, and through some beautiful parks. The worst day on the bike is better than the best day in the car.

“Where are my damn sons? Black Walder promised to be here by mid day. “

“They’re here, my lord.”

Had to read it three times to try and figure out why it used to be allowed, and what happened.

I have both a road bike and a hybrid that is set up like yours: fenders, racks, big, thick commuter tires. In the summer, I commute on the road bike whenever it's not raining. It is much faster, and a lot more fun to ride.

Having said that, if I could have only one, I would keep the hybrid. Riding in the rain without fenders is no fun at all, and occasionally, I have to carry enough stuff to require both panniers - can't fit that in a backpack. Also, the road bike's skinny little tires flat much more easily than the Schwalbe Marathons. In fact, I have never had a flat on those.

Think of it as the difference between an SUV and a sports car. The sports car may be a lot of fun to drive, but it is not nearly as practical.

Im not so sure about the suv vs race car comparison, in that case you have an engine, here you use your legs for power, i mean while it may be practical to ride a MTB with a steel frame and 50 bags on it, you wouldn't get far vs a bare bones roadie

No such thing as a perfect analogy.

My weekly service consists of wiping down the frame and wheels, degreasing and relubing the chain, making any minor adjustments to the brakes and shifting, and giving the tires a good once over looking for cuts or debris. My stand makes the whole process a lot easier.

Do you do all those steps indoors or do you have a backyard or space outside to do them?

Corner of 8th Ave and 6th St. at rush hour, witnessed by at least 25 pedestrians and one fellow cyclist, none of whom said a word.

Came here to say this, and to apparently agree with you. lol
