One of my friends, also named Doug, is a super mighty cyclist and is currently on day 2 of a 3 day ride from here to Boston. I believe he is doing well over 100 miles and over 10K feet of climbing per day.

That's crazy.

I have planned relatively low mileages. Longest day is 60 miles with about 3,700' of climbing. About 13% of that day is unpaved:

Routes ∑ Ride with GPS

Then a day off then 56 with 4,200':

Routes ∑ Ride with GPS

Jay Peak on the last day should be "fun":

Routes ∑ Ride with GPS

I rode it W-E unloaded way back in 2010.

I have no idea how to pack this thing in its own pocket, and google is letting me down hard.

With mine, the pocket turns inside out. And you just stuff the jacket inside the reversed pocket. Then zip up the zipper. The zipper will be backwards though.

Grrrrr..... I needed a seat for my older bike. I had a Romin Evo on it, I have 3 of them. Butt don't like it. I had to pay way more than I wanted to for a Romin expert. Romin evo is not= to Romin Expert. Then I found out its coming from Japan....2 weeks. Bugger!

Yup. I may need to take a "Wordle Holiday." but since everyone I know does it, I also have Wordle FOMO.

I think what he does is crazy, but normal cyclists think what I do is crazy.

I've never done it, and have no plans to.

Yeah, but the question is what kind? That answer has not yet been defined.

It was my third of the morning, but it was so good that I might have to have another, even if I get twitchy :twitchy:

CC seems to regularly be on sale for Prime Members at Whole Foods and, at my store, at least, it's usually pretty fresh (2-3 weeks out of roast), so I'm going through them again with the new stuff.

Never tried it. I'll check on it. I like darker the better.

My wife likes more traditional, darker roasts, too, but I let her try mine this morning - she liked it, despite previously saying that she wasn't in to coffee with fruit notes. It's lighter, but not really light - still medium.

The lighter roasts can be tough to extract, though. You have to grind finer and brew at a higher temp, typically. On the old set-up, I couldn't do that effectively and it was too sour for my taste.

OK everybody I know except for a few outliers on BF does Wordle, including mrs datlas and both daughters.

That's an extraordinarily low bar.

I'm not a Wordle boycotter, I just don't give a **** about it. I believe that I'm a person, too, but I could be wrong.

Pad see ew for lunch. Good, but not $15 good.

If they are walking among us, we will not likely know it because there is an equal opportunity that they exist in a form that we do not recognize or comprehend. A form such as VV which may be alien in nature, but which we just do not recognize as such is an example. :innocent:

If they do get here, we are likely doomed since they will have achieved things that we only dream of.

datlas 05-12-22 01:08 PM

Uh oh. Looks like that teaser "TRON" bike/trainer will not be coming anytime soon.

Well exactly. Until they are real and relevant, itís just a bunch of hot air.
