I think right now we could all use a picture of a pretty kitty. Except apparently VV.

Sorry VV, a like from kissTheApex and an affirmative from Bah Humbug overrules you.

Poor Bike Ride Planning: A Cautionary Tale

Today I failed to adequately pre-hydrate for my ride.

As the miles (slowly) went by, my mouth became dry. I thought about getting a drink. But then I HTFU and dismissed those foolish thoughts. It wasn't even 80F; I have standards to uphold.

The End.

I think it happened around 8:15-8:30am.

I saw an updated news story today. It was only two cars. One had three people, minor injuries! They were helicoptered out.

The other car: no people! They think it is a car that ďwas disposed ofĒ. I had no idea what that meant but Mr H suggested joy riding car thief.

Police are saying that the car I took pics of was ditched first, then the accident with 3 people over the side happened second.

Weird.

As fast as you can ride across Texas, it just doesn't take as long.

You're welcome.

Addendum I

This was not me.


Addendum II

I saw walkers and mostly recreational cyclists on the Farragut greenway (as a serious cyclist, I was on the road, of course). I did not see anyone wearing a mask. A cuteish female waved at me. I saw an Asian jogging and thought of WhyFi .

The End.

Francis is a very good kitty, and she very much appreciates your adoration.

Meow.

We are a boring drip coffee family. See pic below. I expect this is GNC Denali level coffee but works well and is consistent/reliable.

I like all forms of coffee except French press.

But on practical grounds Iím an auto drip person too. Just easier and quicker.

These weird me out. Uh no, stranger, I do not care to have you see all my solo-woman-ride-routes-and-habits.

Google says RI is 37 miles by 48 miles, so I could have ridden across a state today (assuming there is a direct route).

Ofdly, I don't mich like grench press either

abshipp 04-05-20 07:40 PM

bampilot06 have you ever had an engine failure?

Thankfully I have not. I did get carb ice once or twice.

This is a pretty interesting video:

Dont get me wrong- Iíll pretty much drink any coffee set in front of me.

But if I have options- I will not choose French press of my own accord.

What is it about French press that makes it so different?

I don't care for it myself, either.

Bitter in an acrid way. I like bitter but not acrid.

And muddy.

I see (either in person or on Strava) so many people I know riding in small groups beyond their own household that I wonder at times if I’m misunderstanding what it is we’re all supposed to be doing.

Well, If itís as dumb as we think it is, not all of them will be riding in a few weeks. :(

The sad thing is you know how it will go: they themselves will develop inapparent illness, infect someone a step removed, that person will die, but it will never be traced back to the small group ride.
