Road race I am considering doing in May. There is a crazy looking climb near the end of the race. Crazy for me atleast, BigJohn will just yawn. I can see myself blowing up on that hill and not being able to finish.

My only concern, I wonít be able to ride the course before, so I wonít know if there are any road hazards ďpot holesĒ and such. Even if I could get out there a week or so before a lot of the route doesnít look bike friendly if I were to be alone.

Yea, Iím not allowed on this site when I am home. My phone is prolly the only conflict between us. She think I am on it too much, I donít think I am on it anymore than she is on hers. The part she doesnít understand is how much I have to do for my job all the time.

No, it was the Queen route, which is only ~1200m

funny that you mention that. Mine has questioned, but never said no to a car purchase. But if I want to get a new weed eater or suit, sheíll micro-scrutinize that. I donít get it.

I'm in the same boat even after two cups. Until noon, when I miraculously wake up. I'm only a month out from cessation, and am hoping it gets better with time. Prozac for the whole body.

I may do long climbs but I am slow and could never race up them, even years ago. I'd like to see a profile of that route.

Gonna go meet big john for a (hopefully) easy Sunday morning ride. The California sun is up and looks to be another fine day.

Mine wonít scrutinize, but for house stuff she will make me read 10,000 reviews before making a purchase.

the bike buying stuff cracks me up, any time thereís an Amazon package (even herís) she asks my 9 year old what she thinks it is, the reply is always ďbike stuffĒ

Good ride this morning with big john. I did have a rear tire blowout on the borrowed bike but was able to boot it.

Now we must add a stop at Pasadena Cycles to our afternoon walk to get a new tire.

A big thanks to big john for picking a local route and patiently waiting while I fixed the flat.

Noon came and went and I have not yet awoken. I did have a little nap in there though. This after my best nights sleep
​​​​​In a week. Perhaps that's the problem. No bike ride for me today. I hope to muster up a walk later on.

datlas 02-27-22 02:22 PM

Now that today’s ride is done, I must do my husbandly duty. Mrs datlas and I are going to Descanso Gardens. I must try to contain my excitement.

Needed about 6"of cable liner. The cheapest way to buy it was a 30m length. I have a feeling that in 10 years or so I'll find it and ask WTF?

It was just the kind of ride I was looking for. Nice conversational pace, beautiful scenery. Glad I went.

I needed 6" of tiny wire to repair my glasses. The only way to buy it(at the time and place it was needed) was by the meter/4 stranded. I left the rest in the hotel room.
