General Discussion / Trobules with training

  Russel has a good point I went on a great tour put on by Columbus Outdoor Pursuits called XOBA ,Cross Ohio Bike Adventure and I saw an awful lot of bicycles while I was on the ride. I grew up there and bought my first bike there so I know first hand they have them . But , more to the point find out when garbage collection day is and check out what is put out by the road and you will probably find a working bike or more then one nonworking bike and build a good one out of the set. Spring is a great time to find bikes out by the curb. I have a neighbor kid who filled up his parents garage with them and most of them work and he sells them on the weekend.
 Matt I drive to work across NJ twice a day every day. Where are you from if you don't mind saying. I Work in Port Reading NJ and live just north of Philly. Good luck with your trip .

Well Matt if your knees and ankles are up for it try doing some running to break up the boredom of the stationary bike in the Rec . With a balanced weight training program any aerobic exercise program would work. Check the aerobic books by Dr. Cooper .

PS:check out that Spell Check

General Discussion / Where this year?
« on: February 19, 2007, 04:08:08 pm »
How about going on the B&O canal trail & The Great Allegheny Passage from DC To Pittsburgh Pa. and ,maybe a two or three day trip on Cape Cod .Of course the MOOSA ride in northern Maine sounds good too. I also am signed up to go on a tour called The Ride For Runaways that raises money for Anchor House in Trenton NJ which of course tries to help runaways in that general area of NJ and eastern Pa . What a laundry list of rides and I have a MS 150 that I will go on.
  I hope all this works out because I have a wacky work schedule.
      Smooth trails & roads !

I think you are onto something sbs . If you can challenge these people with an incremental ride ,start with short rides and take longer and longer trips. We all can use positive reinforcement and your idea adds the promise of new beginnings. What happens when these people finish rehab?, they go back to the same place with nothing to look forward to. If this works remember it probably won't work for everyone . Also sbs maybe you need the ride and if you help some others at the same time ,more power to you.
    Smooth roads & good weather .


General Discussion / Do I really need to carry a spare tire?
« on: February 08, 2007, 09:56:14 pm »
I have gone on a few longer trips " 500 + miles " and would suggest the spare tire on anything over a day trip. Changing a tire in the pouring rain makes it tought to find that darn thorn/wire/nail or whatever. Also a dollar bill has worked as a boot for me also,but if there is no ATM around and you are bonking you don't want to worry about the tire or haveing a Hostess Twinkie.
