    Another 20 for me this morning. You guys and your big weekly mileage totals are inspiring me! 83 so far this week and will crack 100 for the week tomorrow assuming it’s not raining.

    BTW,...

    Drug my butt out of bed At 5:30 am so I could get my 20 miles in this morning before it got too hot. Unfortunately it was already plenty hot and windy even at that time of the morning. JVShocker, I was...

    Got 20 in yesterday. Launched at 6:30 am and found this to be an exceptional time to ride. Rode the K96 path and never had to get off the bike to stop for traffic (which those that ride the path will...

    The tires are Pathfinder Sport 700x38. They have a smooth center strip for street riding and smallish knobs on the sides. I’m planning to ride the dirt/gravel roads in my area plus take it on rail trails...

    I hope you’re right. I’m anxious to get out and ride the rail trails. Nothing new to see on the Wichita bike paths I’m afraid...

    Oh, and forgot to mention I tested out a couple new pieces of equipment on the ride this morning. First, as mentioned previously I had been having a weird double vision problem about 30 miles into my...

    Just finished 41 this morning. Good ride from Chisholm Creek Park down into Derby, then back up the Canal route path. Wind wasn’t as much of a factor as one might think given how hard it’s blowing...

    Your MacDonald golf course hill brings back old memories. I believe the street with the hill you’re talking about is Murdock. I grew up at around Terrace and Murdock, which is one block East of Crestway....

    Well “supposedly” the funding to pave the Redbud path from 159th to the K96 path was approved to be spent last year. I know someone is doing something with heavy equipment maybe 1/4 mile east of the...

    Yes sir, your picture is the old Soap box derby track. We were about 20 miles into our ride when we tried it last Thursday. I ran out of gas before I could get to the very top, but was coasting down at...

    Hey JV, since you like biking challenges... if you ever find yourself riding in the southeast part of town, ride up the old soap box derby track at Geo Washington blvd and Oliver. It’s a lot steeper...

    One of my biking buddies (and Shockernet lurker) is new to riding this year. He has a Huffy hybrid bike (which probably came from Walmart). When we first started riding, I’d ride a mile, then stop...

    Kung Wu, I appreciate the suggestion. I had a similar problem to your father in law ( seeing stars) when riding with my son in Houston last year in August. That turned out to be dehydration due to the...

    You guys living close to bike paths are lucky. I live in Rural Butler Co and only get to ride once a week because I have to load up the bike and transport to the Wichita bike paths to ride. Last week...
