  • Chicagoboyz Physical Fitness Series, Part IV

    Posted by Jonathan on October 9th, 2007 (All posts by )

    Bicycling is healthful outdoor fun!

    To make the most of your bicycling experience, check local forecasts before you go for that long, weekend ride you have been looking forward to. As in sailing, learning to “read the weather” is a crucial skill in bicycling, as many “old bicycling hands” will tell you. The weather-wise bicycler gains poise and confidence and becomes one with his environment, able to handle any situation that arises.

    Example 1: “scattered showers”

      Been there, done that. But when it rains in Miami, it RAINS from what I have heard, and seen in this video.

    2. Lexington Green Says:

      Yet another reason to stay in the Midwest.

    3. Jonathan Says:

      My new biking shoes are now completely broken-in.

      by gum, that looks like louisiana or mississippi; but, uhmm, not as upscale, if you know what i mean…still, check the forecast … because by light shower, they really only mean a twenty to thirty minute torrential downpour… not quite biking weather…but still, only a twenty to thirty minute delay … unless it becomes a tropical storm or a hurricane or monsoon … which they do, sometimes….

      Yes but what if you are a mountain biker and LIKE torrential downpours while riding?? ha!
