1. Damn - that looked painful
2. At least he moved out of the way when he went down.
I cringe when I see people take diggers like that... But I get out there and ride with the same lack of gear- on the bicycle. That's why we celebrate the end of each ride with beer, and if one of us goes down, that means... more beer!
That right there is why the USCF made salutes illegal. Do it in a pack and get relegated if I'm not mistaken. I get that the pros get to do it. They spend WAY more time on a bike than any 3 of the rest of us. Speaking of which... 4:01 just now. Here to almost Washington, VA and back. How is it you can do a loop and have a headwind 90% of the time? M
FYI: chain lube test
My training life in Colorado. Constant headwind and uphill in all directions. made a climber out of me.
This looks cool!
Do you think his headset might be just a bit Brinnelled?
There was something of a crosswind too. Don't know about the HS.
Judge rejects plea deal
I'm wondering what the "deal" is? If it's just the tickets, then, that's no deal; that's the law.
Group rides start again for the first time this year today. Since the crew put it away last year I've been hard at it all winter, but here's the catch.
I had a vasectomy last week :eek1
I'm skeered of my saddle.
Take it easy, for as long as possible. Going back at it, too quickly, seems to have long-term effects. Myself and two friends all went right back to work and all have intermittent pain. One's junk actually swelled to the size of nectarines. We were all in the construction industry, at the time. YMMV.
Very good advice.
Today is eight days post snip and I'm feeling pretty good. My brother is a urologist and a very keen cyclist, he's been keeping tabs on my progress and says it's not a bad thing to do given the circumstances. I'm going to take it pretty easy today as a test run.
Getting back on the bike without fully healing is just nuts!
Tried the trainer for a few minutes and didn't like it enough.
Going to sit a few more days out.
Ironically, my doctor told me to get back on the bike in order to GET fully healed.
77.5 mi. and 6,400 ft. of climbing in 4:36 out to Platina and back today. It got up to the low 70s without a cloud in the sky. Yay for climate change!
Gila River Valley 200k done. Quite windy today - flags were on edge and road signs were vibrating. It's great when the wind has your back, not so good into the teeth of the wind. 126 miles in just over 8 hours. I would have finished in well under 8 hrs but my riding buddy had to stop twice for... uh.... GI issues and was dog-ass-slow for the last 25 miles. I do not leave anyone behind when they're not feeling well.
I am whipped - did I mention that the wind was brutal? We had it all day and at one point, were riding directly into it. 11 mph was damn near impossible.
Strong effort! Good onya for not dropping your buddy.
Oh, you were riding with my father-in-law?
(j/k, but every damn ride of 60+ miles that he leads, we seem to follow a headwind. I think he's just rubbing his fitness at 65y.o. into our snot-nosed, whipper-snapper butts. It took 5 years of chasing him, but I've finally earned the right/ability to break the wind for him.)
