Any kind of fish oil would probably be approved

I broke my ******g chain again this AM. Itís in the trash, my irritation is high.

This chain has broken at three different links. Iím not really sure wtf is up with it, hopefully itís just the chain and not a bigger issue.

I would suspect it's counterfeit. Where did you get it?

I think that word began with an F and ended with a G.

Yeah, I managed to trace the creaking/clicking on two bikes to chainring bolts. Loose, not missing, though.

Just finished up a 30 mile windy ride. The headwind was bad but the crosswind was brutal. Finished with the winds at 21 mph and gusting to 38 mph. Even my fat butt couldn't keep the bike from side-slipping in the gusts. The last 3 miles in particular were scary.

My Sunday ride week before last was really windy, too, and every time I felt my wheels drift a little I was reminded of the crash in the Strada Bianchi race.

Alaphilippe's somersault, and the way his bike FLIES over him, is what my Dad would have called 'Going ass over teakettle'. Just amazing.

You say that, but we all know you choose the rides with the climbs.

I am not good at it and really hate climbing sometimes, but I always love the feeling of cresting a hill.

Plus the prettiest roads tend to be in the mountains.

Just had a scarry moment with the axs bike. Walked through the room and blipped a shifter and got no reaction. Stopped, went back and did it again....nothing hit the other one. Flashing light. No light on the right shifter. The coin cell is kaput. Swapped it out and everything is functional again. 10 coin cells on the way. Thanks Amazon.

"New" phone arrived. Strava installed. Maybe I'll take more ride pictures now.

Kept man status looking better and better?

Mrs datlas is retired. She takes two painting classes, a Spanish class, and generally seems quite happy with the situation.

That reminds me - Tall Ships is back on the year, but they're moving up the coast shore from Duluth. Need to check with the wife and see if we've booked that yet.

There's some action on the Two Harbors webcam right now!!!
