I found this cycling jersey at a Goodwill in Denver today and was hoping someone would be able to identify the autograph on it. I assume it's a jersey from the US Postal Service team. All guesses are encouraged. I am new to the cycling world and really have no idea! Thanks so much! Picture of jersey: [https://imgur.com/5GZHLmE](https://imgur.com/5GZHLmE) Closeup of signature: [https://imgur.com/fbNuZ5X](https://imgur.com/fbNuZ5X) \_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_ *Edit:* ***So apparently this is Lance Armstrong's signature.*** Best $3.99 I've spent at Goodwill yet. I'm looking into services I could use to get this authenticated. I can't find anywhere in the Denver area so if anyone has suggestions for reputable mail services, I'd appreciate it! ___________________________________________________________ *Edit 2:* While I have you all here- I bought a few other jerseys along with the signed one. I was wondering if this orange one is anything special or if it's just a cool team jersey: https://imgur.com/Yg0E4NF It says "oaktown wheelmen" on the front and back and "in memory of comrade vlad" on the sleeve. I tried googling but didn't find anything immediately

I am based in the UK and have been cycling for about 4-6 weeks now. I don't do a huge amount of mileage per week, maybe 160km. A lot of my commute to work and longer cycles take in shared cycle paths. Normally it is a struggle to get people to move over. No matter how ofter you ring your bell. In fact a lot of people seem to deliberately get in your way. Between that a dogs I wouldn't consider shared paths in the UK friendly for cyclists. This morning I went out and at one point, while trying to get over a narrow bridge I was stuck behind a group of around 30 people. I was just going to get off my bike and walk with them, but I thought i would ring my bell and see what happened. Turns out it was a group of French tourists. It was a thing of beauty the back group moved out of my way and started shouting "attention" to those in front, the cry rippled up the group and it was like the parting of the red sea. I think i said thank you to every single one of them, and was frankly in shock. If that had been a bunch of British tourists i would likely have been kicked off my bike. It makes me think just how far behind the UK is in acceptance of cyclists.

So one year ago I posted on here about he idea of riding your age in distance on your birthday. Comments were great. Supportive, saying that would be a light ride for some, others wanted to do it. Well one year later and I took those comments to heart. I rode 34 today and busted ass to make it the most exhausting 34 I could. I had some help from the Georgia heat but it as great! Anyone else adopt this? I’m 3 years running (cycling?) now on this tradition. Cheers!

After riding the road and casually racing XC (MTB) for a few seasons, I decided to give crit racing (men's CAT 5) a go. I'm a featherweight roadie type, no track experience, so I altered my training to try and replicate the type of riding in a crit. I also read up on conserving energy and general pack dynamics; definitely no expert, but I could conceptualize the fundamentals going in. The TL/DR is I got dropped/lapped after hanging on for about half the race. It was a lot of fun, but I was disappointed in my overall performance. The pack riding and bike handling weren't an issue thankfully, no crashes or moments where I didn't feel confident in a turn. That said, I need more experience in knowing when you NEED to hold on versus just letting group momentum do it's job. Anyhow, I was looking for tips/advice on how to improve for next time. I've already been doing 5-45 second HIIT intervals. I've heard VO2 max efforts (~4 min intervals) help as well, any experience with those?

Been struggling with staying hydrated on rides recently as I live in Houston and it’s FUCKING hot outside. Been bringing a 1.5 L hydration pack, as well as 2x 750ml bottles usually have just one bottle left by the end of my 25 mile ride. That’s TOO much water, and I knew it was making me slower. Today I experimented with Gatorade, and brought just 2x750 ml bottles after finishing one before I left my house. HOLY SHIT. I felt 4 lbs lighter, because I did t have a backpack full of water with me, but more importantly I felt hydrated the whole time, and didn’t come nearly as close to bonking as I usually do on a 30 mile ride. What a difference.

Rant: I live in the northern Chicagoland suburbs and I find it appalling that I have heard these things come out of the mouths of people in their cars as they pass by on the road. I dont get it. I bike perfectly within the law, on the road where *road* bikes belong, in the right-most quarter of the right lane. I average 15-20 mph average speed and often times can sprint up to 30-35 mph for a while. Damn near as fast as a small motorized scooter lol. My point is that I am not a slug that makes it hard for cars to pass by. In every instance that Ive been verbally harassed in Gurnee, it was during very low traffic conditions and by people in their cars who were quite the distance away (either 2 lanes away or on the other side of the road) where I certainly have done them zero inconvenience of any sort. I recently saw a post on social media of someone ranting about how bikers should get on the sidewalk because its selfish for them to use the road. Ridiculous!!! I know I shouldnt let it get to me, but its very irritating to be disrespected and shamed for doing a perfectly legal and incredible physical activity like road cycling. I dont feel discouraged from biking thankfully, I am just kinda worried for my safety at times. I have been physically assaulted by a driver once in the past year or so, where they would run me off into the curb, consequently grinding up my rear derailleur. Anyone else run into asshat drivers like that in your area?

I looked at their bikes few years ago and Giant Defy A3 had mechanical disc brakes and A2 & A1 had full hydraulics but now they have been using giant conduct brakes 'cable actuated hydraulic' across all bikes all the way upto TCR Advanced Disc costing around $2500.seems like you have to spend minimum $3500 on Defy Advanced 'Pro' to get full hydraulics. Btw, 'Giant conduct' is the same cable-hydraulic brake they use on cheap Giant Contend bikes that cost around $1000 so you can see how low-end it might be. whereas Trek offers full hydraulics from their trek domane alr 4 models which start from $1600 (its aluminium frame though). this is a big problem for me as i dont like cable brakes but i love giant bikes, the cable will stretch over time and 'hydraulic' wont feel reliable...i am wondering who else is bothered by this. I am pretty sure they can squeeze in full hydraulics for a endurance/road bike costing around $2000 price point knowing they have such economies of scale.

I'm 20 years old and I never learned how to ride a bike. Embarrassing I know. When my dad tried to teach me when I was young, I could never get it. He would always take me to a park or in our backyard to practice. He would push me and go "Pedal! Pedal! Pedal!" then he would let me go and I would always fall. I always had a fear of falling. When he would let me go, I would stop pedaling. My dad tried so hard to teach me how to ride a bike, but he eventually gave up. It's been ten years since I've attempted to learn. My mother recently bought her a bike because she wants to start going bike riding. I look at this as a perfect opportunity to finally learn. I looked up videos on YouTube and tips online to learn how to ride a bike. I went in my garage this morning to grab my mother's bike and I tried to learn how to ride it in my backyard. Mind you my backyard isn't that big and I tried to learn on the grass. I tried to learn and I'm kind of getting the hang of it. However, when I try to start pedaling I always lose my balance and I lean to one side. I also notice it's easier for me to ride on the sidewalk than it is on the grass. There's an elementary school as well as a church down the street from my house. I'm thinking about practicing in one of their parking lots tomorrow so I can learn how to ride on a flat surface. I'm trying to go out early because I don't want my neighbors or anyone else to see me and judge me. I don't want them to think I'm an idiot or something is wrong with me because I can't ride a bike at 20 years old. I really want to learn how to ride a bike! This is something I want to conquer once and for all! I'm not going to give up until I learn. Any tips for learning how to ride a bike will be much appreciated!

Obviously firearms always come with some controversy but I'm curious what your opinions are on the "deterrence" factor of open carrying as a cyclist. I semi-regularly get people harassing me, honking at me, speeding past me as closely as possible (very nearly running me over), all that mess. No matter how polite and law-abiding of a cyclist you are, you will always run into these people. Honking and yelling is fine, I can just ignore those people - but there's always that occasional ass-hat that wants to put your life in danger to make a point. I was mulling over the idea of open-carrying when I ride as a deterrent to this kind of dangerous behavior. I think when people are in their cars they feel powerful and maybe open-carrying on my left side would make some of these people leave me alone. What's your opinion? Good or bad idea / would it work? Does anyone open carry / what was your experience with it? Edit: I knew I would get downvotes. Can never have any sort of controversial discussion, can we?

I'm a heavy boi that's been riding the new bike for everything. Golden rule is: if you want junk food you need to ride at least 2 miles for it. For the 4th of july I decided to go on the longest ride to date with my gf. She's not as experienced and, when I'm riding fixed, she falls behind easily. Fast forward to the ride home, she gets stuck on a muni rail and falls. I look back, think a car hit her and immediately slammed on my front brake and also ate shit. We are both scratched up but nothing serious. Shout out to our helmets. Today I got back on the bike and rode 5 miles. Gf is kind of scared. Any way to ease her into it again? Edit: Word

Sometimes it feels like a gamble when I want to do long distances. One day I'll set off to do 100km, and get back home feeling like I still want to pedal more. Some days I'll have done 70 and dread every second that I have to keep kicking. Why might this be? I try to keep everything the same. Especially on longer rides, I'll only go out if it's cool enough and there isn't much wind. I always pack my bag as light as possible and my tires are always full. I was thinking it could be to do with what I eat - I usually eat a bowl of muesli and yogurt for breakfast, and then pack my back with some chocolate and bread type stuff. Almost always the same though, so I don't know how that could be doing anything. I always take 2L water with me too.

I've been turned off the road bike recently and I was considering selling it for a salsa fargo or a hardtail to go more into gravel and mountain biking. I've had so many bad experiences with cars and I've always felt so frantic on road rides. I'd often think to myself, "Is this fun? Is this what I'm doing in my spare time?", and I'd return home disappointed. But today, I went on a mile ride to starbucks. I went nice and slow. Going home at night was great because there were few folks on the roads, and I kept a slow pace and had the attitude that I don't have to keep up with cars on a 25mph street. They can go around if they must. What a good ride!

For the first time ever, I am watching some live. Pretty interesting. My question is that with all those world class riders together, how is it that 4 can pull away into an 8 minute gap? To me that seems quite a gap, how does that happen? Even the announcers are saying they probably will not be caught, and it's only about halfway over. What a spectacle though. Wow...

I've seen a few posts and comments about people's screws coming loose and coming out during a ride resulting in the cleat staying in and the shoe twisting freely. I've just checked mine before going out and they had loosened off considerably. Check yo screws my dudes.

I have arthritis so my hands just hurt so much from putting and pulling so much tension on these stupid bars wrapping them around. they look so ugly each time so i keep wrapping them. i have gel underneath them and with the wires it's just so difficult to wrap it all and keep it looking clean! ITS BEEN TWO DAYS NOW sorry just venting. I hate this so much and it's only one side of the bar i've started and stopped on.

I am reading Matt Fitzgerald's book, How Bad Do You Want It?, And he quotes Steve Prefontaine as saying "the value in it (running) is what you learn about yourself.". I'm curious what people have learned about themselves that they didn't already know. Thanks.

I was on my morning commute in Pittsburgh. I swerved too aggressively to avoid a pothole on Fort Duquesne Blvd and ended up flying over the handlebars in what I’m sure was a hilarious fashion. I managed not only to not get hit by a car but also with minimal road rash and cuts. Always wear a helmet

I'm riding 200-250mpw at the moment, so I degrease and clean my bike once or twice a week. My routine is: spray degreaser on chain, cassette, and chainrings, wash rest of bike with warm soapy water, wash drivetrain, dry it, then apply dry lube to chain rollers. Leave overnight/few hours then wipe off excess on the chain with a clean cloth. Should I do anything between cleans? Maybe a quick wipe of the chain to get rid of the dirt? The chain gets dirty quite quickly. What's your routine?

I'm not really sure why but today was the first time me and a friend went cycling together and well every second driver was beeping at us and swearing as if we were doing something wrong for cycling on the road, the only place a cyclist can ride as footpaths are illegal here. Never have either of us experienced it like this today. I'm a newish cyclist and I've never had a car beep at me and my friend trains with a club every few days and he hasn't expirenced it like this ever. Can anyone give us tips for dealing with them?

I installed my Crank Brothers Candy 1 pedals and cleats last week on my first clipless journey. I practiced In my driveway for a bit. And on my 16 mile ride I didn't fall once. But today I took a break at the beach / end of trail (7 miles) and when I went to take off, promptly fell over after clipping in my left foot when I lost balance. Only had two witnesses. One was a cycler with normal pedals, who offered to help me up. And told me his friends were all saying how awesome clip pedals are. I may have scarred him for life. Haha. I suppose I'll not try clipping in from stop, and wait for some momentum now. I haven't had any issues forgetting to unclip to stop (at least not yet.)

Recently I had an experience where I must have done the wrong thing regarding a cycler because they came up and punched my window at a red light. I did not hit the cycler, cause him to drive off the road or anything else that obvious. I had thought I had left him enough space to be safe and comfortable (but obviously not.) Personally, I am not a cycler because the thought of trying to navigate roads and traffic where I live with little to no shoulder is terrifying. (I do bike recreationally but generally not on main thoroughfares.) I have cycler friends and obviously, do not want to hurt anyone or cause unneeded anxiety. (There are no bike lanes where I live.) I generally try to leave cycles as much space as possible but I don't recall learning specific rules about how to treat them on the road. I would genuinely like to become a driver that makes cyclists lives easier and safer so I was hoping you guys could give me some pointers. UPDATE: Thanks for all your help. I think I misjudged the speed the cyclist was traveling at and looking back I did not treat the bike the same way I would have treated a large truck in a similar situation. I feel sure that I left him more than 5 feet of clearance (because I know I have seen cars pass on the right without leaving the road instead of waiting for a car to make a left into a driveway or side street and I stayed on the very edge of the lane) but I should have just been more patient and given him 2x the time and space I thought was needed. In the future I will do my best to treat all bikers as I would treat some combination of the respect and distance I would give a horse and an SUV. Luckily no one was hurt and I can take all your valuable advice for future driving.

Good morning you beautiful people, last year i decide it was time after 37 years to loose weight. I have runner knees, so im always in pain after trying to run. So i decide to buy an exercise bike. At first for being so out of shape, it was honestly a drag to use. Although i did push thur it, for 6 month and then sadly i lost interest. Though, in May i decide to give it another chance. Now it's a different story, i look forward getting on the bike and cycling. Sadly im still inside, but it's my new favorite hobby. On saturday i hit 30 miles in little over two hours. It's the first time i feel a live. There is just something like waking up in the morning and riding 16 miles.

Hello, I'm a 20 year old male and I just learned how to ride a bike. My father tried so hard when I was little to teach me how to ride a bike, and I could never get it. He eventually gave up. It's been ten years since he last tried to teach me. My mother bought herself a bike recently and I saw this as the perfect opportunity to teach myself and learn. I asked for some tips here on this subreddit like a week or two ago and I watched a few YouTube videos before I attempted to learn. I took my mom's bike up to an empty elementary school parking lot down the street from my house, and I practiced. After an hour I was finally riding around with ease! I was so proud of myself! Now I love bike riding! I just wanted to share my joy!

I was riding up a hill and this road cyclist passed me within inches... I almost wrecked because he gave no warning. We then get to a stop and his friend(who he dropped) catches up. They then spend the next 10 minutes blocking me from passing them. Holy shit I'm never riding the popular trails ever again. This is not the first time I might add.
