Luckily, they're not the least bit prone to thinking "We'll ride this one out", so they've been preparing for a solid week and are ready to bug out if need be.

As I said, it has to go somewhere. I wish them well.

I have no vanity about what I carry on my road bikes. I have an ancient Cannondale Bugger on the handlebar of one of them. A normal size seat bag on both. The entire seat tube moves from bike to bike. My tubular tire bag is also from Cannondale. I don't like to carry more than a banana and my phone wallet in my jersey pockets, as a general rule.

My jerseys were wool, shorts too, but my pockets were in the back until I rode low racers.

I really need to get some wool jerseys. I brought one merino t-shirt and one synthetic fiber jersey on tour, and spent most days in the T-shirt diue to how good it felt, but often wishing it had pockets.

I've seen gas stations with race fuel, but seeing one with Off-road diesel on the price board is a new one for me.

Should be cheaper, shouldn’t it? More sulphur, no dye?

Off road diesel has red dye in it. It should be a lot cheaper because no highway tax. Of course, I don't know what the tax is where the pic was taken but tax on a gallon of gasoline here is about 80 cents.

Oh, right.

The internet says the fine for using red diesel on road is minimum $1000 per tank but I've heard of companies being hit with $20k fines. I've changed fuel filters on customer's cars that had red fuel in them.
Red diesel is the same as road fuel other than the dye since 2014.

I should know, since I pump red diesel into the boat a few times a year and use road diesel to prime the primary fuel filter whenever I change it. Good to know it's been cleaned up. The boat diesel is a filthy little POS.

When you say filthy, are you referring to it being dirty on the outside or dirty in its emissions? I've seen a fair share of sailboats coal rolling along at 3 knots.

Dirty emissions. No visible smoke, but motoring any distance with 6 or 7 kts of true breeze over the stbd quarter is like slow execution for the occupants of the cockpit.

Yep, I think that's part of the design brief for those things.

The only time I ever got sea sick was when I was down below on a whale watching excursion in Monterey. I was chatting up photography with another guy on the trip, when the diesel fumes got ahold of me. I left all my gear down below and ran up to heave over the port side. My wife and kids watched and got a real kick out of that.

Fumes from wet fuel or exhaust? You haven't lived until you've changed a racor in the airless bowels of a sailboat, bopping around in the godawful seaway that flooded the thing with tank crud. I'm normally immune to the very worst bay chop, but not with diesel in the mix.

I’ve had similar experiences from diesel exhaust while on fishing boats. Just awful, forces you to decide whether fishing is even worth it.

It was exhaust. Conditions were a bit choppy.

Yes, I haven't fully lived. Happy to not do so in the conditions you've described.

No highway taxes on off-road fuel.

Got stuck behind this one person for most of the ride this morning. Whyfi is familiar, but I will elaborate for the rest of y’all. Pedal pedal pedal coast pedal pedal pedal coast pedal pedal coast pedal coast pedal pedal pedal pedal coast.

Worst part, this partcular person will speed up “catch up” to the bike enfront when he pedals and then coast to not over take. It’s a constant surge throughout the whole ride, unless the said person is pulling. It’s very annoying to follow. I did everything I could to prevent myself from slowing down every 3 seconds. I don’t know how no one has said anything to this person. I feel like still too much of a noob in the group to say anything but sheesh, someone needs too.

I had a similar experience. Went on a whale watching trip with friends, and I was perfectly fine within the SF Bay. When we passed the Point Bonita Lighthouse, I started to feel overdressed. Then the neck on my sweater seemed too tight. Then it was clear I was getting seasick.

Then somebody THOUGHT they saw a spout, so they decided to run the boat in circles, slowly.

Then I DID get seasick, but there was no "run up on deck and puke over the rail", because the first deck was completely enclosed and the second deck was half enclosed, so if you puked from there you'd be decorating the windows on the lower deck. So, I had to sit as close to the center of the first deck as possible with a barf bag. I remember thinking, "If the boat sinks now, I might die, but at least I won't feel like this anymore."

As we headed back in, as soon as we passed Point Bonita, I immediately felt better and within a few minutes I felt completely fine. On other trips on the Bay, I've never had any problem.
