Speaking of expensive, since the partner is gone, are you going to get back with Troy and the bunch? I saw them last weekend, and yes, there's a lot of pink going on there. Mike Z is back on the bike, and he was rocking the old school Psimet kit. Good to see.

No way! I like Mike Z. Good to hear he's back on the bike. I still use the old team psimet arms.

I've been thinking about doing some road racing next year. The problem is I'm scared of the head injury. My kid is young, my business is doing well, my wife quit her job and is starting her own business. I see clients and victims and cyclist friends with head injuries and it hits closer to home now. I've been riding more dirt to get off the road. I read parts of the Should I Quit thread in the 33. I can relate to a lot of that stuff. I feel less invincible.

A woman on an ebike with a huge cargo carrier rang her bell at me and blew by. I tried to catch a draft but she was too fast.

That's HTFU right there. I'll admit, when the weather changed for rain yesterday afternoon, I hit the trainer in the basement.

But it's not red. Dr. Sheldon Cooper had a red computer. Just sayin'.

Speaking of which, it would be a gross injustice to not mention this, the most famous migrator of them all.

unpleasant but it was an improvement of my ride last night. Even at my slow speed of 30 kmh, hailstones hurt.

Does it allow the two of you to ride together?

Of course, it was just misting when I took off, and no big deal. It became a bit more wet, a lot more dark, and much colder by the time I was done.

Hail sucks, especially when there's lightning about. Hiding under a tree is a tough choice. Hail does hurt, and glad you made it through.

Let’s hope they’re around for a few more summers.

I'm close to needing a new Specialized helmet. And some shoes, but I'm holding out on both.
