My perfect ride is 40 - 50 rural miles in flat-to-rolling countryside.
Road bike: Seven Cycles Axiom SL.
Absolutely. I would not ride without a helmet, spare tube, a pump, and water.
I have been road biking with my wife, Laura, since April, 2004. We have a family membership in the PPTC and live in Reston, VA. I retired from the Federal Maritime Commission in March, 2010.
Very helpful. Please keep up the good work.
