Re: Bicycling as sailing

Minnesail,
Good for you. It takes real grit to complete a ride like that. Not a lot of joy there until it is finished. Take away the gravel and you have a pretty typical south Texas springtime bike ride. I've never thought of bike handling in sailing terms, but you nailed it.
Carl,
Get yourself a good rear view mirror and keep your ears open and keep riding.
John
