LOL... can't deny Castelli nanoflex stuff, it's pretty good. Rapha DID come out with their version which were the Softshell armwarmers and knee warmers, but they were recalled shortly after release and taken off the website. #raphafailed

Coupon code for Ribble "WIN15" gives you 15% off 2016 castelli stuff. Ribble already has smoking hot deals on Castelli.

Gabba jersey anyone!? One of the most favored jerseys in the pro peloton for foul weather gear.

Whistler Fondo question, I'm not "doing" it this year, in terms of registering for it.

But I may ride the course the same day same time, b/c I have a ride back from whistler.

Question is though, do you know if there are "marshals" on the course that would care?

I don't think so right? Its a public road and technically it isn't "closed", only closed in certain sections to vehicle traffic.

You sir, will be labelled a Bandit. Personally, I think it's unethical and unfair to the registered participants. Yes, you can justify it all you want in your head;, public road, etc...but the course is closed for a reason, #1 being for the safety of registered participants.
Obviously, no, if a race marshal saw you, most likely they wouldn't know or care. Most are just volunteers. I've done over 300 races, and not once would I consider running in one without registering. A couple of reasons, being insurance (if you get hurt or injured during the event), and secondly, part of your registration fees usually goes towards a good cause or foundation.
Other reasons I would say no is, what if you had an accident? Would you expect the first aid team or marshals to help you? What if you took out other riders, or got in their way? If they knew you weren't a registered rider, I don't think they would feel happy about it, if you're taking up resources (first aid, support, food, etc) that they paid for.

The #1 Reason Not to Bandit a Race | Run to Win

In the end, nobody is going to stop you if you decide to ride it, it's your personal choice and a question of ethics.

I'll spare the details but me and GREddie did the Fraser Valley Prospera Gran Fondo. Despite being registered, we were late and were asked by the race marshal not to ride with our tags.

Surely enough, we were spotted multiple times throughout the ride and had to explain our situation. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure we would have been pulled from the ride. YMMV.

I'm pretty sure you're being sarcastic....but in case you're not....WHY? The marshals are most likely VOLUNTEERS, who are probably there because they either love cycling themselves or they're there supporting riders who are friends and family. They are in place to keep riders SAFE and on course and to call in medical if need be. Who are you to ruin their day?! If this happened, why would they want to volunteer again? These events cannot happen without the help of many volunteers.

Thanks for the "ethical" response lol u seem very serious so I'll keep my comments to myself

henry604, not going to register for it this year. The event has gone to shit in terms of swag. Last year was the dog shit worst. You didn't get any swag except a shitty saddle bag. After the race, there wasn't even bars, recovery drinks/food, dry fruit, wafers, they didn't hand out sandals, no swag bag, nothing. They had 1 tented table area where they had bananas and that was it. And i finished in 4 hours so they definitely didn't run out of anything.

This year, all their emails kept on hyping that they have more free stuff to give away, but i think a lot of folks have a shit taste in their mouth and are passing for other events

The rides to work these past couple of days have been horrible. I refuse to put a fender on a road bike but I keep getting these skid marks up my ass and back. What are your thoughts on having a fender on? Look cool without one but look like you sharted yourself upwards? or have one and look like a dork but be slightly drier? Man, I hate riding in the rain and damp roads.

You can get the plastic removable ones which you can snap on/off very easily. I forget what they're called (ass savers or something?) for a reasonable price.

The one I use on mine is the Schwable Insider but it came with the wheel that was included with the trainer I bought off someone from craigslist. Worked great the one time I used it.

Since we are nearing the fall/winter months, I came across an app that will connect with your speed/cadence sensor and will train you based on your power or FTP. They have training plans available and plenty of workouts to choose from, depending on what you want to get out of your training. I love how they take the guesswork and monotony out of indoor cycling. Check it out TrainerRoad

Did the Ride to Conquer Cancer last weekend and Saturday was by far the worst conditions I had ridden. Day started out just pissing rain and when we got to Seattle we were welcomed by a windstorm. They eventually cancelled the rest of the ride for Saturday because people were getting hurled around and hit with branches and debris. Did a video montage of the ride for anyone who cares to see.
