Once I was into long-distance riding. Now it's a quick 20 in an hour

Since all there was on TV on Sat was college football, I decided to go for a nice, long ride - 52 miles.

Got about 80 miles in over the weekend. Finally the weather is turning for the better.

Anybody else prefer riding in the evenings to the early morning? I certainly do, but seem to be in the minority on this one...

The transition off of daylight savings time has been killing me. Had to cut a ride in half the other night because I didn't account for the earlier sunset.

Oh, and just the round trip work commute (10 miles) for me today.

~70km yesterday in -5ish degrees with moderate wind. At least it was daylight which is getting pretty scare around here. Jens factor mostly 3 with a bit of 4 at the higher exposed points.

I only do like 5 miles or so a day.. probably about 30ish a week =/ Perhaps I better ride more, although my bike is extremely rubbish. What bikes would you guys reccomend that don't break the budget? (Ideally i'd only like to spend £200 / $300)

Keep riding the bike you have or find an older steel framed road bike from the 80's or 90's that no one wants anymore. Steel is a good thing

+1 with variant.

If you're current ride feels like crap and gets up your nose with noise and rubbing this n that, nothing works properly etc. it may be worth moving on.

But for 200 pound you're limited to used. ..which is actually a good thing. bikes don't hold value so a lightly used commuter from a few years ago should be available in you're price range.

Hard to offer more info without knowing your current bike and needs/wants.

This is my first season and having only one horse three months I have logged about 4500 miles. No long trips, but I'm out and driving whenever I can. Some of you ride bikes more than a couple of months I will run throughout the year. I am also glad everyone is doing it all safely.

Subbing for the spring/summer/fall, currently too cold for my African blood

I picked up a set of rollers a little over a week ago--it will be nice to get some indoor training but mostly I am looking forward to what the rollers will do for my balance/handling skills and my pedal stroke.

Unfortunately...this weekend I decided to strip down and overhaul my road bike. I figured since it is going to be living indoors, I should clean and wax the frame and repack all of the bearings now (since they won't get gritty until it goes outside again). The only problem is that I discovered I am short a few tools (damned shimano hubs that require 2 different cone wrenches at once) and that some ball bearings really should be replaced...that's what I get for neglecting this bike.

I suppose I could put my cross bike on the rollers but it might be a bit bumpy
