    Just before Christmas, a brilliant, talented, funny and competitive young woman was struck and killed while she was out riding her bike here in New Brunswick. She was on track to be an olympian, and she was making a name for herself in world cycling. We now have "Ellen's Law" here in New Brunswick which stipulates drivers must give a minimum of 1 meter space between the car and the cyclist. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/one-meter-law-1.3916004

    One of those articles I save for later, and am every bit glad I did! I suspect the next step will be for management to decree a more robust (and expensive) form of healthy transportation is in order, so watch out. May I suggest to management the Extreme Mountain bike from The House of Solid Gold: http://www.thehouseofsolidgold.com/24k-gold-extreme-mountain-bike/
    It would go very well with the "Fields of Gold" rice paddies that Sting liked to sing about.

Were working to get her up to the Ironman distance of 112 miles. Based on her average swim and run times, she needs to maintain 14mph to stay on the course. We're getting closer! I dont think either of us could maintain this rides speed over 112 miles. I have carbon too, I love it, I hope you enjoy the new frame. Good Luck in the sportive, and the marathon.

    There is an old country song titled: I was Country, when Country wasn't Cool. I was biking when everyone else was into motorcycles and cars. My favorite time was in a misty rain. Made the ride a bit more treacherous but so refreshing. In our area there is a huge Fat Tire group (mountain/of-road biking). My local Sierra Club group recently reached a tentative agreement to work with them to acquire more trails mileage for them since they are great at protecting natural areas and helping fix areas that have been abused by less diligent cyclists. That group includes doctors, lawyers, executives, etc. and many of them are baby boomers! Extreme cycling!

    Great post Steve, I am a golfer and yes our numbers are dwindling, good for me, I can set up a tee time at any slot. Golf is an all day sport, driving to the course takes at least 1/2 hour, to play a round 4 1/2 hours so we are talking 6 hours. However, I feel with a client it is easier to talk to them on the course instead of me trying to get the defibrillator out from biking and talking while I am being transported to the emergency room. Golf is a good walk spoiled

    #1 @Pascal Derrien mine is 500€. You don't need to pay more for cycling!

    At least golf isn't the thing anymore, but I think I'll still hang onto my hiking boots.

    So true! I worked in tech in Austin (huge cycling community) and the CEO at the time was an avid cyclist. I definitely remember hearing about his business networking by bike.

    #1 thanks for the comment @Pascal Derrien The thing is you often start on a cheaper bike (mine was a second hand Trek that cost $600) but you soon start to hanker after something a bit more special / talk about. Sad but true!

    Was invited to cycle with Nicolas Roche for a spin last month on an invite basis only, indeed there was a lot of what I call ''menopause bikes'' on display :-) but the most noticeable sign was the size of the cars on the parking :-) One of the organizers mentioned cycling as new golf too I think the main difference is that cycling is a bit more universal at least on continental Europe it is a cross overt thru social classes good article

    PS: my bike cost is less than 1k Euros :-)

    Made 40 miles yesterday on the Sakatah trail between Waterville and Faribault, MN. We only managed to average just over 16mph thanks to all the stops to clear the trail and in some cases "portage" over large trees downed by a thunderstorm the night before. @Donald 🐝 Grandy, do you suppose the make chain saw scabbard's for a road bike? I could used one 😁. Aaron Skogen

    #5 compelling indeed @Donald 🐝 Grandy. Perhaps it's fodder for another post!

    #3 Thank you, I will do that. She is competing in a half this weekend as a training exercise. . . She rode the MS150 alongside me this year, which was just awesome. She is certainly an inspirational woman, her motto to battle MS #Keep Moving! She has me convinced to give a tri a try. . . I'm not worried about the bike, but the swim and run scare me :-)

    #1 I think I am going to work on a prototype @Donald 🐝 Grandy . . . Yet, it may be more suitable to a mountain or fat bike :-). This trail is notorious for getting blocked up by tree limbs. I am helping a friend with MS train for her Ironman Tri, we planned two full laps, about 60 miles, but were slowed down so much by this we had to cut it short due to other obligations. We'll get there! Sorry to hear about the vandalism, that is certainly unfortunate!

    I like it Aaron, we could use it here in Canada!. I was competing in a cross country bike race back in the spring. and Vandals completely blocked part of the trail by cutting down numerous trees on the route. At least your problem was caused by Mother Nature not Vandals. Glad you persevered.
