Minimal traffic; maximal scenery, socializing, and sense of accomplishment. And let's not forget a food goal -- always willing to bike for food (and beer!).
Depends on the terrain. I have a Trek Madone 4.5 for the road and a Gary Fisher DS 8.6 hybrid/MTB for the bumpier stuff.
Always. It's how I roll.
Modest. That probably translates to a CC or C in PPTC's lexicon. But I 'm flexible -- happy to speed it up or slow it down to be in good company.
I'm more a social/fitness-oriented cyclist -- definitely not a hammerhead. I enjoy planning interesting routes and training for endurance rides at a modest pace with lively, like-minded folks. Cycling should be fun. Let's ride!
