Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Yes. It seemed somehow connected to the big announcement about the password reset. Not sure if connection was intentional or coincidental, however.

Correction. CycleOps was always a Saris brand. SRAM bought the power meter (PowerTap) business off of Saris, and Saris decided to brand all their remaining CycleOps business under Saris brand.

Back to regular programming.

Had a fun group ride last night, but was hit with the realization that my Wed night group rides are almost done for the year. Bummer as I feel like I'm finally rounding in to decent shape. Last night, I was feeling particularly cheeky and decided to ride off the front a mile out from a hotly contested city sign. Covered the mile in under 2 min, which is probably my fastest flat mile, but was still picked off by a guy who had a great leadout. One of these days I'll hold 'em off.

Kudos.

Our rides are not really races but we sometimes get competitve on long climbs. On yesterday's ride we had a really long, tough climb early on. I know the climb well and paced myself and did not worry that the rabbits were out in front. Toward the end I put on the afterburners and cruised past the guys who went hard too early. That didn't suck.

Kind of. I'm taking my fat bike to some of the local races.

I'm never going to be a climber, but I've finally come appreciate pacing climbs (in as much as you can call them that in my region) with the power meter. I used to loathe climbs before, but I sometimes seek them out on my own and I'm regularly getting PRs without killing myself. I'm not sick enough to do repeats, though. Maybe in another 10 lbs.
