Re: They snub my greeting - Is it just me?

Perhaps its my grizzled appearance and garb consisting of a white helmet, polar top, flourescent yellow tabard, jeans, cycle clips and hush puppies? Al? It's a 'club' thing. When I wear what they wear I get acknowledged with a passing 'hello' or a nod of the head. When I'm wearing t-shirt, shorts, ...

Ride with GPS

I was looking for a phone app to record my rides, not to plan my rides. I tried other Cycling phone apps like Strava, Map my Ride, etc. and they would invariably want me to share my information on other media Then I thankfully discovered Ride with GPS (find in Google App Store) It's free, it allows ...
