Strange, I have to stop pedalling to pass some gas. It doesn't seem to happen smoothly or at all while I am actively at cadence.

I had wicked gas during the latter part of my two-week tour that just ended. Constantly coasting and getting out of the saddle to rip one.

Must be some correlation between the muscles used for pedalling and that

"Do that again without dropping to the back of the paceline and I'll stab you in the neck with a pen."


That's pretty common, especially with typical athlete's diets and supplements.

For some folks simple common carbs like rice can cause intestinal gas. For others -- including me -- it's sugar alcohols like maltitol, commonly substituted for plain sugars in energy/protein bars. That's why I prefer Clif and Larabar snacks -- they use sugar, or glucose, dextrose, sucrose, which is less gassy for many of us.

The worst by far, for me, has been magnesium lactate. Sure, lactate supposedly is good for converting to energy. But holy mother of all that is unholy... the gas is like satan crawled up my bum and started campaigning for president with endless speeches. A single mag lactate capsule and I'm turbocharged for 24 hours.

Beware: Supplements like Sportlegs may be great for relieving or preventing muscle cramps but it's full of calcium lactate and magnesium lactate. Warn your friends if you're in a group ride.

lol, I don't know if I strictly need to stop pedaling, but I certainly do! I'll be looking for opportunities to test sitting/spinning/sonorousness

ps I believe that pen she's holding (is that angelina jolie?) is a Parker Jotter Ball. For some reason I tend to notice those pens (or what seem to me to be those pens) all the time in movies and tv. I haven't had one in a long time. I remember liking the design, and the writing was smooth, but the ball seemed to always accumulating gloop that would blob off into the page once in a while.

Same. Cannot toot and pedal at the same time.

It somehow comforts me that another person has contemplated the same idea. So I'm either less crazy, or we're all more crazy.

So when the rider in front of you stops pedaling... heads up, could be, could be...
and then puts all their weight on one pedal...
yep, we're not slowing

One pedal doing the work of two, is my normal. The right pedal does the work, the left follows it. Adaptive multiple physically challenged cyclist inside. Respect this. P.S. Clif Bars are my energy source climbing or on the bike.

I recall from Bio 101 that it's an evolutionary thing because when you're running from a tiger it doesn't help to have things coming loose from that area.

There was some discussion about why horses poop in parades but that class was 20 years ago and I've forgotten many things.

I dunno, seems to me if a tiger took a steamer to the face, they might give up the chase

lookit him with his right arm around the back, and half the time using his left thumb for the bottom of the (G?) chord. Is that a thing normal people do?

Who knows, Owens was an consummate showman. I really never knew much about him nor did I ever give him a second thought but this podcast was fascinating:

No idea if he was letting one rip during that filming, however.

Well the other thread died, or was killed... so what I have stop for... is to pee.

I've done long rides and tours and the one thing I always have to stop for... is to pee.

I have seen TDF riders stopped for the same reason... although I have heard that some don't stop for that...
