Subject: Dallas rides
I am going to be in dallas for a couple months. I'm staying near dallas love airport and looking for a good place to ride. I don't mind driving a bit to get away from crowded traffic. I am looking for 40-80 mile rides. Is there website that has a list of local group rides?

check http://bikemart.com/articles/rbm-weekly-group-rides-pg461.htm

Great local store with their main location about 20 minutes away from where you'll be in Richardson. They have weekend rides of a lot of different distances starting from there as well as (I think) their other stores. I haven't ever done them preferring to ride on my own schedule, but I see their groups out regularly and many are well attended. I don't know that they go up to 80 miles, but I know there are rides that go at least 40.

If you drop in the store, I'm sure they could give you more information about their rides and potentially others you could consider...most people in that store are very helpful.

Enjoy your time in Dallas!

Love Field is just 7 miles from White Rock Lake, which is a huge area for biking. Two major biking stores: Richardson Bike Mart (http://bikemart.com/) and Dallas Bike Works (http://www.dallasbikeworks.com/). Also a triathlon center: PlayTri (http://www.playtri.com/). I'm not sure that I would ride my bike along Mockingbird all the way from Love Field to White Rock Lake- heavy traffic on this road, but I'm sure some people do. Here is a link to trail networks in Dallas: http://www.dallasparks.org/Downloads/Trails/DallasTrailNetworkPlan....

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?
