How DO you know??
Category: Technical

With Speedplay x cleats, there wears a visible flat spot
on the spring that tells you when it's time for new cleats.
On the 'zero' cleats, there is no obvious wear..my question is
how do you know when it's time (or more importantly, PAST time)
to change them??

Preliminary planning of a bike trip to San Diego, late winter/early sp
Category: Social

Hey, Everyone.....

..."it's too early to be thinking about riding in early Spring
2011", you might say...and if we were planning another Tuscson
trek like we've done for the last 4 or 5 years, you'd be right.

But next year could be different. Instead of arriving in Arizona,
where speaking Spanish in public could require that I PROVE I was
born in Detroit, I'm thinking of some costal/mountainal riding in
San Diego, CA. Our base camp would be in nothern SD County near
Escondido, north of SD..our timeframe would be the same as usual..
late February, early March of 2011.  This change of location would
give us better roads, more varied terrain and HOPEFULLY the same
warm dry weather we've always had in Arizona.  I have many cycling
contacts in the greater San Diego area, so routes and cueue sheets
shouldn't be a problem. Since lodging is the single most expensive
part of these trips, I'm looking into the cost/availability of
hotels near our base camp area...as for flights, Southwest can fly
us nonstop from BWI to SD for aboout $300! (And bikeboxes fly for
only $50.00).

This trip is still in the early planning stages, so please contact
me off-forum ( wgary@jhmi.edu This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) with comments, questions or experiences
you've had riding in the SD area.  I'll post a summary of responses
as I receive them until our riding plans are firmed up.

I've copied this post to this forum from 'Out of Bounds' because I thought
more folks would see it here. Sorry for the double posting.


thanks,

Bill Gary

Hey Terry...I have a post in the 'Rides/Out of Bounds' forum
asking if anyone is interested in a late Winter/early Spring
(2011) cycling trip to San Diego CA.  Should I duplicate that
post in this forum??
Let me know if you're interested,

Has anyone done this ride?

Has anyone done the Reston Century?
It's on the 22nd, a week and a day after the
Cumberland Century (which I HIGHLY recommend!)
I'm interested in how well supported, scenic,
tough, etc. it is.
Is it worth the drive to Reston VA?

Hey, everyone...I recorded the Spring classics (Flanders,
Paris-Roubaix, Fleche Wallone and LBL) on two DVD's for
whomever wants to see them. If anyone is interested, just leave
your email on this thread and we can take turns viewing them.

The first person with the disks is Teacher/Fugi Bob...when he's
finished, whoever is next on the list should contact Bob to arrange
a transfer of the disks.  As per usual, I have a copy of these
races, so I don't need the disks returned to me.  They are the property
of the BBC.
