I live in Sierra Vista and need to drop my bike off at Tri Sports next weekend for Tri Bike Transport to IM KY. I was hoping to get in one more long ride before I send the bike, but that won't work if I ride locally. I was wondering if I could drive to Tucson, ride, and then leave the bike. Looking for somewhere safe, and not too hard to ride. I should be going about 110 miles and don't need to be really near the drop off point. Suggestions?

Hi!

I haven't ridden THAT far, but i know you can combine a bunch of stuff I have ridden to make up a loop that long.

This map should be helpful: http://cms3.tucsonaz.gov/bicycle/bikeways

You can head out Oracle Rd (north of Ina - has less traffic/better bike lanes) all the way to the town of Oracle.

Also, if you go to mapmyride.com you can search routes in that mileage range. If you want input on whether or not they are good/safe, I'd be happy to help.

Here's the El Tour map, too: http://www.perimeterbicycling.com/el-tour-de-tucson/files/2011/08/2...

I own both a road bike and a tri bike. I am wondering which bike I should be riding during off season training, or does it matter?

Riding Zen means nothing more than being keenly aware of your surroundings and in control of your emotional state at all times. It also means riding safe and riding smart.

Over this next month I will be learning more about my bike each time I take it out to ride. I want to take full advantage of what it has to offer.

The most valuable thing you can do for your endurance training is to schedule a weekly 2-4hr long ride from now until the end of time. Simply make this “what you do” every Saturday or Sunday morning.

I read an article that this type of pain comes from straining the neck, especially from riding a road bike. What can you tell me about this type of injury?
