What happened to the rest of the Stude?

Dead in the forest since before I was born. My uncle (who's also getitng one of the knives) had to drag the rear subassembly back to his garage to get the leaves off with a plasma cutter because they were so thoroughly rusted to the frame.

Fixed.

Best sign at the march; “VEGANS FOR BLM”. Nothing like killing two issues with one sign.

They did a good job getting all the red paint off those Jump bikes.

Does marching count on Strava?

Only if you enter it as a hike. I do not make the rules.

LesterOfPuppets 06-06-20 11:10 AM

Boy free Strava sure is stripped bare now. I got a PR this morning and didn't know it til I tapped on the segment. No more gold/silver/bronze next to the segment, you gotta tap on it to see

I'm amazed they even let you see that.

I did decide to go pay for TrainingPeaks, since I discovered missing that more than Strava once my coach stopped giving me premium when I cancelled until next season.

Achievements are showing for other people. I don't believe you earned one.

Hmm, not a bad idea.

Somehow I don’t think so :(

My garmin told me I’m 3% acclimated to heat after this morning’s ride.. what puny acclimatization! It feels like a pity acclimatization.

Bah Humbug 06-06-20 11:32 AM

And it was damn amateur hour out on the MUP this morning. At the start of my second loop down the trail I saw two people sitting fixing a wheel; when I asked if they were ok they asked if I had a pump. It turns out B had already stopped to help A, and between them they had one CO2 that had been left screwed into the chuck and slowly leaked out, and was fused to the chuck. I used my chuck and CO2 to inflate the tire and... it immediately popped because he hadn't checked the tire, and the tire had a good 1/2" gash in the sidewall from hitting whatever he hit, which also had driven a spike of clincher bead into the tire. Tire shot, new tube shot, rim likely shot, and he had no idea on anything.

Meanwhile, before even trying my CO2, I hear a crash behind me, because some tri girl out with one of the big local groups wiped out. She stone-cold ignored the 4-5 people asking if she was ok and rode on, so I guess she was, but wow.

In the end I bailed halfway through lap 3 because I couldn't take it any more.

I'm at 31%. Temp peaked at 95* during my run.

Must be a glitch. I see it showing a cup on my June 3 ride.

​​​​Today I got PR on Robin Lane, but no achievement shows.

oh wow! If you’re at 31% at Austin, it’ll be fall before I get fully acclimated :twitchy:

Probably. Mind, it only counts outdoors and 72*+, so even my sweltering trainer rides did nothing.

And yes, it takes months to acclimate fully.

Either that chain is really low or you need to cut your lawn.

Strava might have cheated you out of a mile.
