Nah. I know that his life has a lot of moving parts, right about now.

A wise decision, for sure. I'm sure glad I got out of there before the next winter.

where did you stay?

We were on the far east side, just off of I90. I was tempted to hit up a local donut shop on the way out, but it looked like it was in the town proper and would have added another 30-40 minutes to the morning. I like donuts and I love checking out local spots, but I just wanted to get the **** home by that point.

Not sure why, but the gifs looks a little sped up.

Now that I have merino wool base layers I find thermal jerseys not necessary. Today for instance, 34 when I started. Opted for 250 gram merino wool base layer and my castelli jacket and I still got to warm during the ride.

I have been wearing a short sleeve jersey over the base layer just for extra pockets. I usually bring lots of stuff.


I tried to mount my emergency mini pump onto my madone the other day (help free up pocket space) but the screws for the bottle cages were not long enough to hold the cage and the mount.

Also even if I did get the mount on it would have looked a little ridiculous becuase of the shape of the seat stay.


And thirdly, the internet cannot handle footage of my ass.

Just shows to go you the power of greed. White collar criminals have been blue collar for centuries, they just can afford better fronts (offices) and better lawyers.

Indeed, it is.

Yeah, at 34⁰ or so, I'm usually just looking at a jacket and single base layer, but 150gsm or less, and mostly for managing sweat, not for insulation.

Was that the post-game reaction in Philly last night? Boy, those fans take things too seriously.

Oh, and Dan also brought me to the base of the cobbled climb at Libby Hill. Nope. Those cobbles are pretty friggin' gnarly. I was informed that one of the gutters is a relatively smooth line, but I couldn't see it from my vantage point and I was imagining the cobbles, that I could see, grabbing and twisting my precious rims.

With that Castelli jacket you probably only need a short sleeve jersey underneath based on what Iíve read about it.

Try a 150 gram base layer at those temps.

I live in the land of the guayabera, a sport shirt with pockets. I wear one every time I go to the city, or get on an airplane or bus.

So I bought at eddie baur. The merino wool only came in 250. I bought some lighter ones but they are polyester. Works well. Now with the new jackets I have to figure out what works in different temperatures.

The SportWagen is safely tucked away in the garage.

Especially with a high-quality synthetic base layer under it. I tried that for the first time this season and I think the additional moisture dispersion and insulation extend the temp range quite a lot.
