Meanwhile, back at the ranch...



This was just a free, unofficial club ride open to anybody. A couple of the guys stepped up and provided SAG support, which was nice because otherwise we would have been reduced to schlepping Camelbaks. Dr. Todd managed to hit the deck while decending Wilson Hill Rd. about 5 mi. from the start. Despite the road rash, he invoked Rule #5 and finished out the ride. The climb up Hwy 36 was a real grinder as was 89 once we were in the park. At least in the park, you have the scenery to make the pain cave a little more liveable.
I love it. It's spectacular up there. I love the signs up there with the Zone of Destruction text.

And thanks. I'm feeling pretty good about Death Ride. I'm doing this entire ride for three things: Team in Training and blood cancer research, a 5 Pass Finisher jersey and ice cream at the top of Carson.

Big deal. I created my very own Strava segment last week. All 1.4 miles of it, from scratch, while you were out just pedaling your bike.

Nope. 1.4 miles. That's a long way on a bicycle.

Ibadan Hills

One of the OldBastids has extended an invitation for me to come ride the hills of Ibadan soon. I remembered some of those defeating cars with dodgy engines. Not long but steep. No plans to come down and push.....

Time to change my cassette to WiFLi


WiFLi 12-32 Cassette


Old Vs New


Tools for the Job


Had to change the cable


Food for a metric - I usually have a bar or gel left over



Tested next day - Ok but noisy


Random cycling news

I also did a hard 25 miles on Saturday so, on reflection, that is probably not the best preparation for a long ride....

Overall all, great weekend to be on the roads

Good job!!! Start preferring the hills more, and you will see major improvements quicker!!!! We ride routes with tons of hills... My bud Tim can leave me for dead on climbs at 61, but I am closing the gap by digging deep when it really hurts. Get to the point where you want to call a cab, and then turn on the jets.
