The Best Bit of Bike Advice I Ever Received Is…

Harold
Cutoff jeans and a 50 mile ride?  Dont do it.  Just dont.  When cutoffs were almost “somewhat cool,”  I rode anyway, what a stupid idea that was.







Joe
Glasses outside the straps. 









Tom
Apply suntan lotion first then butt butter.  Never change the order.







Kim
Nobody's your friend in the last 200 meters.









Chris
When you're deep in the pain cave it is pretty likely that everyone around you is too. That bit of advice helps me hang in when the going gets really tough.







Leesa
LOOK at where you WANT to go, NOT where you DON’T want to go.








Kurt
"Smash the Big Ring!!!!!"







Butch
You're usualy better off ignoring advice from the guy you just lapped.









Nick
Keep the rubber side down.









Charley
Get your knees in! Stop cross chaining! Don't run those stop signs unless you’re with me and we are in a break!





Mark
If it's not fun, you're probably doing it wrong.









Rachel
Eat...or you'll bonk! Get off the front!









Jerry
Do not mix embrocation with chamois cream.







Jason
The wise T.F. gave me the obvious (to me now) insight that everybody hurts at the end of the climb...just keep pedalin'.

Fun stuff....and how about: "put your embrocation on after, not before you pull up your skinsuit/bibs.....the stuff travels north!" I will add to this that contacts also need to go in long before embro (learned the hard way)
