    I wouldn't worry about it too much. If you did 43 hilly miles, 60 flat miles shouldn't be an
    issue. Keep yourself hydrated and snack at all the SAG stops. It also helps to keep your eyes

    I love all of our RTCs here in Florida. We have a lot of them and my wife and I have plans to
    ride as many as we can while we can still ride. Every one of them have been excellent trails
    and great rid...

    Finished the month off with a slow ride this morning. I was going to do 22 miles with my wife
    but ended up doing 27 miles with Frankie D since my wife opted not to ride today. So here's the

    worry about a...

    My wife just went to a podiatrist for a problem she was having on her left foot. She has a

    of the rout...
