Addiction LXXVII

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

Because everything is locked down, the one recreational cannabis dispensary here in town went to online only sales. Since they have to limit recreational sales in order to prioritize medical patients, they only open their online ordering window every once in a while, with no notification or anything. In order to actually order anything you would just have to get really lucky. If you look on their Facebook page people are salty about it

These are surely the same people that think queuing for literally hours at a time just to buy a tiny little amount of legal weed is a great way to spend their time

It's true - my signal meter is distinctly American Caucasian.

I miss that tuner - it was sooooo nice sounding. Not much that I wanted to listen to on the radio, though.

That's not a bad price for that frame. My custom ti frame from a small (but award winning) local builder was in the $3,000 range back in 2016. Cerakote finish was a couple hundred bucks extra. And it took about 7 months to get. That was due in part to some additional finish work that needed to be done after the first go around.

Dang, my power meter would require me to ride at least 150miles for that kind of burn. Of course, you’re probably a lot more powerful (younger) than me.

Total burn on the day was ~5900. The ride was ~63 miles and accounted for ~3000cal. I also took two walks to the grocery store, which is about a 1.5 round trip each time. My base daily rate, being lazy AF, is around 2700 or so.

I average between 25 and 40 cal/mi depending upon which bike I’m riding and what I’m wearing. My daily requirement is about 2600 at my fat butt weight.

On PMs, if one is not pedaling, the PM shows no work, thus no calories. That can’t be right in my mind. If you get your HR way up, wouldn’t there be a pretty high rate of burn even when coasting. I realize that there is no work happening but still...

Popping in to shops and book stores were also regular stops. We moved to our neighborhood because it was target-rich for walking and riding. Now we have no destinations. I suppose that we could start picnicing when the weather is a little nicer, but that's not going to cut it in 45° and overcast.

I've only ever looked at cal/hour - on shorter, more spirited rides, I'm right around 1000/hour. Longer endurance rides, more like 800/hour. Looks like I'm at about 50/mile. I assume that you see your lower figures on the 'bents?

I don't think that I've ever had a calorie data field on my GPS. I don't know if I have one available.

If they're going to play, they might as well make it tackle, at this point.

No ****. No pads or helmet either.

May as well all drink from the same water bottle, and post-game meal, a bowl of chili with 8 spoons.

It has been established beyond question that cyclists make poor shark fare. It was further theorized that lactic acid residue ruins the flavor. In any event, there are no recorded shark attacks on cyclists or vise versa.

No, not at all. They run the same. Only difference is max power which is generally much higher on my single uprights because I’m a fast twitcher and my max power is usually accelerating away from a stop sign standing up.

Yep, my trike has a PM and eTap. Not your granddad’s trike.

Can’t remember the comedian, but it’s not a shark attack if you are swimming in the ocean. You are trespassing.
