ST, I compose my message in the little box at the bottom and then click post.  If I see that I’ve goofed up or misspelled something I click on “edit” and make my corrections or changes.  It’s all good.

Seriously, though, are you trying to compose your post on something like MSWord and then import it to here?   If so, that’s probably where your problem is coming from.  The board does not seem to support all the high-falutin’ tricks with font, indent, color, format, and everything else that you can get away with on a word processor program.

Just a comment on altitude fitness. Humidity really has an impact.

With motivation most people can ride a bicycle for 100 miles; however, I belive it is more about your abiltiy to comfortably sit on a bicycle seat for hours.

Maybe the best training for long distance riding is to sit on your bike while watching TV.

My mileage goal = 908 miles.

Distance from my house to Sioux Center, IA.  Any cycling miles will just mean I’m a little more prepared.

I copy and pasted one sentence from an email to use as reference and then retyped that sentence in the forum box.   Then I highlighted and deleted the copy and paste sentence and hit the Send Post button.    Shazammm……the hieroglyphics were still there and could not be edited out no matter how many times I attempted.

I was signed up to go, but the weather forecast for freezing rain and snow scared me off.  Not that I think I couldn’t have handled the ride itself under those conditions, but I didn’t want to wind up on the newscasts as “one of hundreds of travelers stranded in Iowa as an early February blizzard shuts down the central part of the state”.

I *DO* have to be back to work on Monday!
