I agree. What jerks. Some riders have to get a clue if we want the driving public to treat us all with respect.For me personally, skip the friendly toot of the horn. If you must, don't do it until you have already passed me.
Now I must admit I really want to lay it on the horn at times when I get behind a pack of racers heading down a major two lane road 3-4 abreast and will not pull single file and traffic is backed up 4+ cars deep. To me, that is unsafe, rude, and perpetuates motorists bad attitudes toward all cyclists.
Why not start with small steps. Try a rail trail overnighter with a friend. Build up her confidence as well as your own.Same here. My wife wants a call daily, and has told me she doesn't want me to take any extensive tours alone. Hmmmm. We may face that issue in the next couple of years.
My mother is gone, but I still check in with my wife while on tour. She might not understand where I am, but she likes to know I am alright. Calling in is the first thing I do after making camp.
You are right. I tried my old bike out and realized within 5 minutes I'm not going back to steel or any other bike but CF. I do have a set of other wheels that are sturdier and I will use them on tours.QuoteI'll get a sturdier, less sensitive ride with more durable wheels anbd less chance of a serious breakdown
You could just put the more-durable wheels in the CF bike, right? Or if they're not the same size, get another pair made?
The Rockies in the second half of June is as favorable as it gets. That's the optimal time to be there. There should be plenty of sunshine, with a fairly low chance of rain. Depending on where you are ("the Rockies" covers a lot of ground), it can be as hot as the 90s F in the day and below freezing at night. But in general, the weather is great. Cycling in the day can usually be done in shorts and a short-sleeve jersey. But of course you need to watch the weather forecast and plan for cold descents from the passes (i.e., carry some warmer stuff up the passes with you).
