The part where Iíll be is relatively developed. In fact, a few miles away from the campground is the town of Woodbine. Thereís a pizza place there called Sopranoís. No lie.

Edit: Holy crap! They changed the name:

Crappy weekend in our household, wife and I have been trying to buy a house for 9 months. Lost out on three of them last year, one which we were under contract on. Went and saw one Friday AM, immediately put in an over asking price offer but are now are in a multiple offer situation. People are trying to relocate here from downstate and driving prices up to silly levels so looks like we will miss out on another.

sorry to hear that amigo. We think weíre gunna start trying to buy one in the spring. Currently the houses are only lasting about 10 days on the market, and we need a little more funds to be competitive. Also, losing a house that we really want would destroy the wife.

Judging by the few times I've heard crabon wheels approaching from behind, I don't see the need

Initial impressions from today:

1. 40 miles of MUP is definitely too much
2. This saddle is probably best for 60-75 mile rides, maybe not 125
3. 10 hours is a long time to spend with myself

Also, until ol' datlas uploads his ride, I'm atop the 'board. :bday:

Kudos. They look great!

I should have gotten a tiny bit more lost today, datlas is ahead of me by 1/2 mile.

Man, y'all need to chill out. I've got 173 miles so far and I'm not going to do any better than third on the week.

Bah - datlas would just last down a century tomorrow, anyway.

I know I'm going to need to spin some of this out tomorrow, but it's hard to imagine getting on a bike right now.

I felt great all day, but hit a freaking wall at 110 miles.

Went sailing today. Great conditions, but it didnít look like a pleasant night to anchor out, so we will sleep at home and I will get some distance tomorrow...

Better not be more than 70. :notamused:

IMO ideal bike ride is about 4-5 hours. More than 5ish and something starts to feel no bueno.

Depends how Iím feeling. I certainly donít need that much, but thereís this road I was planning to check out... Distance is a silly parameter, anyway.

I hit my ride too hard. Well, I hit it hard enough that I didn't have much left in the tank at the end, so I'm going to need to seriously rein it in for a metric double of my own. I should really work on that...

Anybody know where I could pick up some tips on pacing for longer rides? :innocent:

1) That's called "Tuesday morning".
2) Find the right saddle.
3) Yes.

A PowerPod might help... :innocent:

Very rare in the southern portion, where Iím going. The campground does have some feral cats. One time there I got takeout and was too lazy to ride all the way to the dumpsters. Cat tried to drag off my garbage bag. Another time I had to scare off one of the largest raccoons I have ever seen. They often feed out of the dumpsters there.

That might be too expensive - do they have a left-side-only model? :innocent:

BTDT. Only once though. I managed 118 that day. I decided a double metric wasn't a necessary milestone.

Is that the best bang for the buck power meter??

datlas 06-27-20 06:25 PM

I lost a water bottle towards the end of today’s ride and was too cranky to go on a treasure hunt to find it.

I do need a couple new water bottles anyway as my usual ones are getting worn.

I have usually been buying Camelbak Podium bottles, any reason to look elsewhere?
