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

Sunrise at this morning’s farm campsite. Owls and coyotes at night. Made it back to the car with only a little drizzle during the last four miles.

No and me hat is off to yez.

This was my first real Zwift ride and it's definitely the least painful way to ride long and hard on the trainer. My trial ran out halfway through and I just paid up and jumped back on the bike. Name is the same as on Strava.

Well, I was referring to today, of course, though I wish that I could get out as regularly as you.

Step 2, fail. Open up new computer. There does NOT seem to be any outlets to plug in the old hard drive, unless I muck around big time and try to disconnect new hard drive.

Suggestions??
I took mine to an IT guy in the village.

Sadly, I got neither... but I do have an awesome shovel and an awesome Marigold jacket and an elegant, lightweight and aero seatpost!

Which is nice.

Replaced the busted hanger, then while checking the alignment noticed the beginning of a hairline crack in the rear Open Pro rim...

This bike is possessed!

On the plus side it's time to go tubeless for commuting.

I really like the Ultegra hub I have on that wheel, and I wonder if there is a suitable tubeless rim brake rim it can be laced to? 32H rear, 28H front I believe.

And holy water. Definitely holy water.

The DT Swiss R460 is nice; ready for tubeless setup, rim brake, available as 32H, and under $50.
