How much are you willing to spend?

My go to is scrambled eggs wrapped in a tortilla. You can add cheese,bacon, sausage etc. to make it to your liking.

I wouldn't have cash mailed to me. That would be too risky (in my opinion) and more inconvenient than just withdrawing from the ATM. Maybe you can open an account here at a bank that has many ATMs where you plan to travel?

Come on, it is possible to be interested in touring, racing, and yes...maybe even racers.

Gear Talk / Re: Bar-end mirror & front down tube shifter?
« on: April 21, 2012, 11:27:33 pm »
I may be totally wrong, but, without braze ons on the frame to mount a downtube shifter, that may be somewhat difficult. It's probably be easier to use a set of dual levers.

  Also, although I may be wrong, it seems to me that Strava used far less battery power than MapMyRide.

Agreed, I used MapMyRide once upon a time and there was no way I could do a real ride and expect the battery to last. Presumably--but I can't say for sure--you'd run into a similar situation with Strava?

This is great. As someone living in N. California I'm always looking for things like this to spend a few days to a few weeks of time on.

General Discussion / Re: Good workout supplement to cycling?
« on: April 07, 2012, 03:57:53 pm »
Putting an emphasis on core exercise (including the back) has really helped me. Being stronger in those areas has eliminated a lot of small aches and pains and made me a stronger rider in general.

Electrical tape.

This is all helpful to us.

I haven't seen any of these (other than here) yet. Kinda like the Giant one.

Cool. I got that, I guess I just want some reassurance that if I show up the likeliness of being left standing there looking stupid is minimal. I've never stepped foot on a train, let alone with a tandem bike in tow.

I hope I'm not inappropriately resurrecting old threads ???; but, we are tenatively planning trekking from Nor-Cal to Santa Barbara, returning via Amtrak next summer on a tandem. Any info on train travel experiences would be HUGELY helpful.

Weather can be hit-or-miss. I have seen some spectacular weather up there that time of year, and not so great weather other times.

Awesome. We're new to touring and are excited to do our first unsupported (weekend) trip in a week!
