I thought I did well this week, and am barely on the podium. Tough room.

I'll see what I can come up with next month in all the humidity.

Maybe I'll ride to Reno, even though the big event is canceled this year :(

Sound plan! Since Saturday is one week and Sunday is the next week, I shouldn't have any fatigue issues, amiright?

BTW, I unintentionally misled you about the MLB at bat app for mobile. It is $29/year for all out of market games. This means you could watch every team but the Snakes. That is not such a bad thing...

Absolutely! I also foresee no familial issues.

The stupid Toll Brothers development at the end of our street plus episodic rains have resulted in large areas of standing, stagnant water the past few weeks. I have also noticed a major increase in mosquitoes lately.

Think there is a connection?

No connection whatsoever.

Mine came as a result of the Pcad incident, coupled with the first aggressive behaviors I've witnessed in the twelve years I've been riding in these parts. I decided it was time for chipseal and then gravel. I never thought I would take that step, but here I am

How do you figure this? The week ends on Sunday.
I don't see a way for Sat and Sun to be in different weeks. Unless you're talking about the following Saturday, of course.

Probably the fatish tyres on my youth bike, or at latest, the tyres on my '80s 10-speed bike.

Is there really a professional team called the Snakes? What sport? Where have I been?

Semi-inside joke between Hummer and I. Some time back, there was a guy saying that it was dumb that Strava weeks ended on Sunday, rather than Saturday. He didn't understand the concept that, with the typical M-F work week, Sat and Sun should, for all physiological reasons, be lumped together instead of split.

Whatever the reason, the time zone of the group isn't controlling. My ride this evening would be well into Monday there.

You just do you, [MENTION=25227]Velo Vol[/MENTION]. The rest will take care of itself.

Speaking of time, we're about to overtake WhyFi again. It will feel good to have the belt back.

I would not ride whereLAJ rides. I would go completely off road if there were no other options. I have become alergic to traffic.

That's a really bad place to have mosquitoes.

I wish that I had a friend like that, but I'll settle for uploading and cataloging them online to UpRide.
