I'd pretty much given up on passenger road vehicles, even the Tesla, cool as it is, isn't that much different looking than any other sedan. But this cute little thing really looks like a lot of fun…Continue

"Wow, Dr. Davis is pretty radical. I'd always thought that whole grains were considered ok. Cutting out all grains completely is not easy. Sounds interesting though. Please keep up apprised from time to time."

Joe Guzzardo replied to Joe Studer 8.0 mi's discussion Be Careful of Ice on LFT
"Apparently, that was part of the infrastructure improvement for the Olympic games, although no Olympic events were planned over that trail.  Rio has much bigger problems to contend with as far as preparing for the Olympic games.  "

"Heh, I'm excited for you Juan. It looks like you're in good hands now. For me, bike commuting to and from work was a game changer. It's improved my life in every respect. You're an articulate, gutsy guy, not afraid to admit when…"

Joe Guzzardo replied to Gene Tenner's discussion 5 myths about bicycling
"Its a conundrum, juxtaposed against an enigma, a paradox between what we conjecture and the existential unknown. The precipice between our beliefs and the summit of our knowledge. Oops, there's another episode of the Twilight Zone…"
