    Do you compete with your friends?

    Me and @618Gravel like to try to win each other's Local Legend from Tunnel Hill State Trail. It's a great way to keep up with your fitness while having some fun. Do you do this yourself? If so, in what ways?

    Interesting. I wonder though if it inspired the gravel bike?

    Long-Distance Cycling

    What's the coldest you'll ride in (outside)?

    Group Bikepacking

    I totally get that. I typically won't ride in the "no drop" group rides because I know at some point, I'll get dropped and I feel bad when people keep having to slow down to let me catch up. Usually I warn people that I'll drop at some point and to just keep going and I'll catch up when I...

    What cycling skills do you lack?

    What all bikes do you have and what's next on the list?
