Sure, Jan.

While I have your attention, it looks like you are in the cross-over of the Frost Belt and Wheat Belt from Mojo's map.

Can we say you are in the Frosted Wheat belt?!? :foo:

I was serially disappointed in that cereal as a yute. I don't know why I kept trying it.

Well, you know, all generalizations are bad.

Almost 176 flat this morning - I'll be a climber, yet.

My daughter is addicted to frosted mini wheats, so you may be on to something.

My daughter eats 'em dry, but she also sets aside pieces that don't have enough sugar on 'em. :rolleyes: :lol:

What did you have Trainer Diffculty set to? I've cogitated on doing Alpe du Zwift, but I might do it at 50% instead of the 100% I usually run. Won't make me any faster, but might spare these aging knees.

I forget if I mentioned it here, but I am celebrating "Movember" by not shaving (at least under my mask) and (of course) making a donation to a men's health charity.

However, mrs datlas is not especially pleased with this and complains when I try to snuggle, it feels like kissing a cactus. So I do believe the goatee will be gone on/about 12/1.

speak for yourself. Cap area is definitely more NE than anything else

I did it in workout mode (most of) the way up, so no shifting incline. The 10 min after the workout ended and before the top were in the 50% default; I run a 25t max on the cassette, so I'm not likely to change it.

Perhaps she needs a referral to rule 5?

New York is not part of New England.

I had always thought it was, but indeed you are correct. It is not.

Any map that doesn't have Velo Vol in an Appalachian region in wrong.

Looking towards abshipp land, maybe.

My trainer is 25t max. I generally do 50% because of that too

:innocent:
:p

That part I have to agree with.

Just got invited to Del Frico's for dinner tomorrow. I am leaning towards rack of lamb.

My training wheel is 25t max, but it's on the Bianchi which is 50/34, so I'm leaving it at 100%, but I may rethink that. The 'outdoor wheel for the Bianchi has a 12-28, which gives it the second lowest low gear, after the Canyon's 36x34.

The R3 is 52/36 with 11-30 cassette.

Perhaps you live in an area with no distinguishing characteristics.

I can't go to a place like that and get anything but a steak.
