Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
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

Out on the roads, sure, go mask free. But not on the mup

I'm sure he tested positively, in the negative

Because of my place to make the S1 into a dedicated trainer bike, I actually used the DCR Analyzer tool to check how accurate my never-serviced OG Hammer is compared to my Quarq. Amazingly, it is bang-on. It would certainly be easy to imagine another Quarq being more divergent. It's the least-popular high-end smart trainer, but wow is it quality.

I save bacon grease too. Nothing is better for frying up leftover potatoes.

Hey all. Someone was asking me to watch how long between charges I get on the axs bike. But I forget who. The answer is 6 weeksish. I rode 64 miles today, the last 13 in 1st gear on the big ring. Because the battery went dead. I tried to swap it with the front derailleur but that didn't work. Charged the batteries all is good.
. LAJ. Congrats on the new pup.

I just finished assembly on this a couple days ago. It is fantastic. The nut is cut a little wonky so the string spacing is offset, but it plays so nice I'm scared to make a new one.

I think Dad is lonely and manufactures computer issues to ask me about. He sends me an email with a question, then when I email back he immediately calls without fully reading. "Well now I know you're up."

It is disturbing the amount of grief I am receiving from automobile drivers since this whole pandemic thing started.
It's never been this bad. I had a guy throw a McDonalds hamburger at me last week. He almost choked on what was in his mouth, he couldn't spit it out fast enough to yell at me.
I rode on a road I haven't been riding on lately due to its poor condition. It is mostly cold patch for long stretches.
So on my return leg I took it. I don't know what made me look down at my camera but as I was rolling over some of the roughest "pavement" I've ever ridden on. I looked at it just in time to see the last fragment of the mount separate. Releasing my camera to fly off on its own. For the second time I caught that camera as it left its moorings. Those clear plastic mount do not last long on mi. roads.
I believe Monday I will strike out on a century. I haven't done a solo century in a couple of years. Its high time I do.

I'm going to use it like I would a cheap hooker. Bastards strung me along for years like a crack dealer now they want in my pocket. I'll keep on using the free app. I'll get used to not having segments.

I don't even want them to have my data though, nor my rather high padding to their activities per week per user stats.
