Wow, no appreciation of Schola Cantorum.

If you want to witness one of their fine performances, you'll have to travel to Syracuse.

Or check out their YouTube channel.

I was working a road race course for our local club once. As the Cat 5 group approached my location, on a flat straight bit of road, they fell in a heap for no apparent reason.

I was on a club ride and we were spread out along Mulholland Drive. Some new guy went roaring past me and promptly crashed in the middle of the lane. It was flat and smooth and dry but down he went. Another rider who had met him came by and offered to stay with him until he could get picked up.

This summer I rode with a guy who is now over 21,240 for the year and rode them fast. Heís retired and recently lost his son to a hematological malignancy, poor man, so that explains some of it.

In the early 90s a friend did between 20 and 25K every year for several years. He didn't have to work. In 1990 I took 3 months off work and did some touring and after the tour I rode 400 miles per week with him for about 5 weeks.
I did 12K miles that year, my highest total.
On Saturday one of the ladies in club #2 told me she does 12K per year. She is in her 50s and had a hip replaced early last year. She has great endurance.

Almost twice as expensive. For that budget, I'd likely go with this Drifter Ė No. 22 Bicycle Company (22bicycles.com)

That's a good lookin ride

Thatís a LOT of saddle time. As you noted, understandable. If I could ride as much as I wanted, I donít think I would see numbers like that.

My pusher asks me all the time if I'm having cramping issues or soreness in my muscles etc. Other than dampening my heart rate, I hardly notice. I do get some pissah wicked hamstring cramps post ride though.

edit, if I irritate them by sitting wrong, with my legs under me, or in a folding chair.

I get lots of hamstring cramps when I push it. I don’t think statins do that. Worst part is when I jackknife to straighten my knee, it often causes my chronically overworked abs to spasm. …Or maybe it’s the same spinal cord process doing both.

I added an edit to the above. My hammys only do it post ride if I sit wrong, legs under me,, or in folding chairs. I don't know why but they don't like folding chairs. If I sit in the car or stay on my feet it's no problem.

Any rapid knee flexion will do it to me. Thereís a move on the boat that causes it routinely if Iím not really careful.

I forgot, while I was on this last trip, a box from trek showed up at the house. The guy I worked with to order the madone sent us a little Christmas gift. New bottle and a coffee mug. That was pretty awesome.

I tried that one time, I think I only made it 20 miles. More power to him.

All she cares about is when she says "tacking" I release at the right moment, dive for low side, and get that 140% Genoa in toute de suite. The cramps and cries of agony are my business.
