How Many Numbers Does It Take To Change A Tire? 12/27/2023

How Many Numbers Does It Take To Change A Tire? One piece of cycling knowledge that is supremely frustrating is tire sizing. The late Sheldon Brown, was, undoubtedly, the foremost authority on bike tire sizing, and even he had to admit that "bicycle tires come in a bewildering variety of sizes."

BWR 2011 - The crux move. Part 6 12/22/2023

BWR 2011 - The crux move. Part 6 This was the day. Actually, THE should be capitalized. In all of my planning, I knew this day would be the hardest, the crux move, so to speak.

BWR 2011 - Let's bring it home. Part 8 After getting about four hours of sleep, Roland, Hiroshi and I woke up at midnight and hit the road at about 1am. They had oatmeal, I had a sticky pecan roll for breakfast. A group of four riders had left before us, but we were pretty sure we would catch them, given the terrain. The first 50 miles w...

The San Juan Islands Catrike Trike Tour! 10/11/2023

The San Juan Islands Catrike Trike Tour! I have a fondness for the San Juan Islands in Washington. After all, it was back in 1997 when I first saw a recumbent there (BikeE) and thus began my adventures in recumbent cycling. They are also just beautiful islands with low traffic and plenty of amenities.
