I'm pretty sure that is satire..... pretty sure.
Ingenious either way
2hrs on the mtn bike today. Since my buddy has a Garmin he can tell me that we averaged 5mph. :lol
Can you say 'toodle?' I can. The goal for the day was to not break a sweat. Pretty well managed that.
I was out scouting trails for the hash I'm haring on Dec 23rd if any of y'all wanna come out to Nokesville and run (yes, I said run) thru my local patch of woods.
I SO want one of those T-shirts! Who's selling them?
Had the flu/crud all week, but today was too nice to waste indoors. Got out for 9miles of single track at 7 mph avg. Only hacked up a couple of phlegm balls. Passed a guy with a leaf blower clearing the trails. He got in some miles today.
Verizon 3G service, Sansung Illusion phone, I loose GPS signal on Strava and Mapmyride apps, lots of straight lines connecting locations where the GPS reconnects, Google MyTraks works great instead and keeps acuurate GPS tracking during the ride.
Any ideas as to why ? Bad phone ? I'd prefer to use Strave or MApmyride because both are more bicycle specific.
Now I import the *.gpx file to RidewithGPS to keep records of my rides:

I'm legal to race again. Just renewed my license. 13mos for the price of 12
On Strava, right?
Ya know... if I had a strava account, I may post races on it to see if I couldn't match those speeds solo. ...but I'd probably just use Training Peaks, the Garmin Software, etc instead of posting anything publically.
Why do I want my competition to know how fast I'm going before I outsprint em?!
Thinking about track racing just now. Can you imagine the 'strava segment' around the track?!
Some time ago, I was downloading to Garmin, but, thought "Why?'. I don't really give a shit. I just wanna' ride.
You sly dog!
There's a velodrome, down in St Louis. It's pretty rough, but, there's a decent crowd.
Major Taylor velodrome in Indianapolis is super-nice. If I lived there, I think I'd buy a track bike. They have a skate/BMX park, right there, too.
Yer damn skippy!
you wanna get fast in a hurry? Race track. LOTS and LOTS of seated power comes outta track racing. I useta be able to outsprint people sitting down. Its fun to watch em flailing about on their bikes as you're pedaling smoothly away from em.
...but I can't climb a hill quickly to save my life!
We had a lottery pool at work and someone asked what I'd do if I won a share.
They had never heard of a velodrome before.
Thing one here also--build a velodrome if'n we win the lottery.
250m, wood, indoors!
Well, I don't know if that's what I do, but, to each their own.
This gives one an idea of the standards of the place.
ChisenhallW ain't home, but boy howdy! does HE have a story.
...so does my buddy B.
I'll let him tell C his side first.
Oh, B and I did 3-laps and then 2-laps at race pace. Got gapped by a bit on the first one after I dropped my chain from the outer to inner ring after an off-camber uphill leading into an uphill/rise (as much as there're hills where I am) and lost focus. I just couldn't close a 10m gap in the second. 0 for 2 but B was fixin to puke and I wasn't. Seems I didn't dig hard enough gotta work on that.
3:20 and 42 mi. out in the mud and muck on the MTB today. I've got to get some winter tires, the back end was bound and determined to pass the front in every other corner (Continental Race Kings). Something not too knobby with a nice round profile since I ride from the house on the road to get to most rides. Your suggestions are welcome.
No rides for a week now and it's spitting rain and I worked til midnight last night and I went to a funeral 100mi away today.
So many excuses. So few miles.
You get those pics uploaded yet?!
