I love biking!!! both mountain and road. I ride as much as possible, and then some! I think that everybody should bike and that they should take care of their bikes like they are, along with all of your outdoor gear, should be treated second only to God! :lol:

Haha!
It sounds like you must have some pretty exspensive equipment, j/k! :D
I know people who get nice new gear and it gets torn up around their house so bad that it looks terrible by the time they use it... a crying shame! I don't have a nice bike yet, but I keep my skis in my bedroom! :D

I know several people who keep their bike inside their house. I haven't been biking recently rider1000. I have to much other stuff that has kept me tied up.

I just rode 100 miles last weekend, in one day!!! Let me tell you, I was really sore the next day, that was quite a trip. I would suggest it to anyone, as long as you are willing to ride your bike at least 8 hours, if you don't ride fast. :lol:

I"m jelous!! That sound fun and challengeing.. I'm hopeing I can do that this summer. I probibly need to get in a bit better shape. I would also deffinitly want to use a rode bike right? :D My dad has one.

Yea, when I do it I'll just have to take my time and have lots of sunlight to spare.. :P

What did you do for Food rider1000? Did you have a lunch and supper break? I would want to be sure I had lots of water to.

You don't want to know...

When you ride as much as we do, you don't eat much in the way of meals. We were eating a power bar about every hour, and an energy gel when we needed a quick boost of energy. It's really not the tastiest stuff, but it gets the job done and is easy to ingest when moving. And lots of water, about a bottle an hour, if not more frequently.

I just did a race on Sunday, and got royaly whipped. It was terrible. But I can say that I lost to some really, really, really fast guys. These guys were my age or younger, but I think they had been training all winter long. It was amazing to see what kind of shape they were in. I did lose, but wow, the best man certainly did win. But I am proud of myself, i beat the current State Champion for my age group. I don't know how, but I did. Luck I think... :wink:

Now if only you were as fit and had as much stamina as your avatar has... He's like the energizer bunny...


[/offtopic]

Anyway, 2 weeks ago, I rode my bike for the first time this year. Ripping down that hill going 30 felt soo cool. Riding back up it was killer, though. :smt083 :mrgreen:

That is why I don't ride around my house. I like to get warmed up before I take on a good hill.

NOOOOOOOOOO....... You beat me to PAGE 7 oh well... :lol:

I have a great ride from my house. I can ride about 4 miles to get warmed up, then I have about a 1 mile fairly steep climb, then a 50+ mph descent then about a mile of flat, turn around... a 3/4 mile steeper than a lot of peoples noses climb, then a 35+ mph descent, and a nice 4 mile roller ride home... I love that route, evens out to be about 11.5 miles...

:smt102 Yea, riding uphill can be hard Rangerman, but it sure keeps me in shape! The uphill part is at least half of the fun for me. Man & bike against unmovable hill!! :P Especially if it is mountain biking and there are technical sections: roots, rocks, sand, and sticks...ect! :smt037

SWEET PAGE POINTS!!!! All right... i thought i had lost... I'm honored mitch, thanks...

and yes to keep on topic. I love riding uphill. Just today I went and did about three really good climbs. I was grunting up one in my smallest gear... But that is what makes it fun. Conquering the immovable hills on a simple machine... :P

Some practice and some running on the treadmill helped! Ah, getting back in shape after winter feels good! I can now run the giga-hill 25% faster! (Although I'm not *quite* as in-shape as I'd like :p)

I had not known that being the first to post on a new page was so important. I will have to try harder to beat you for the next page.

Now, to stay on topic. Does anyone have any suggestions for a road bike that is a lot of bang for your buck? I need to get a road bike and not rely on using my dad's bike. But, I don't have a lot to spend.

The best $700 road bike you can buy is the trek 1000, according to Bicycling magazine... so if you have that much, then definitely go for it, if not, look around... You can find some for a little cheaper, but they aren't as good...

:smt002 O no, we have more competition. Basicly it is just an inside joke between Rider and I on the biking thred. So, the secret is out... common knowledge. Who will be the first one to page 8!! :smt024

Look around before you buy, and definitely buy at a speciatly bike shop... NOT walmart or a place like that. Make sure the bike fits and is positioned properly, but if you shop at a bike shop, they will do that for you when you buy the bike. But talk to the guys at the shop, ask them questions, let them help you, they know a whole lot more than any of us do. :wink:

So is anyone riding this summer? I am absolutely loving my job. I hope the rest of you are having a great summer, and are getting some time to ride. 8)

That is awesome, sounds like your summer is full of riding! Sounds like a dream job for you. How much area is there to ride? I bet you might have all the routes memorized by the end of the summer!

I"ve been busy, so busy with riding that I havn't been around this forum lately. :mrgreen:

Well, maybe doing other things too... :lol:

I am sooo out of shape. I went for a ride on my mountain bike and i felt a little stiff. But, when I went for a ride one afternoon to a staff meeting, I couldn't finnish the ride back home. :cry:

Now that I am working 40 hours a week, I don't know when I will find time to ride. :?

Well, to get this topic rolling again....

Has anybody ever done a triathlon? I did one a few weeks ago on a relay team. I, of course, did the bike leg. It was a lot of fun. You guys should try it... we've got another one coming up in about 3 weeks too... I excited!!! :D
