I wondered, but that was why I double-checked. Not like they usually have a lifeguard anyway. There are worse things than rest days, at least.

For me it was the Varia today. It still showed the Varia symbol in the top right corner, but would not read the traffic.

Bruce had my back though.

Everything else was charged. I charged everything last night. In the past when the heart rate monitor battery was low, Heart rate battery low would pop up, or light battery low, I guess I am just confused by “Power source critically low” means.

You and Kyler.

That looks like it was painted for your bike.

Easter morning, Dad, who was an early riser, used to hide all the ones that weren't in our Easter Baskets. Maybe half were pretty easy, but Dad took great pride in there always being one or two we couldn't find, so he could show off by 1) remembering where he'd hidden all of them and 2) revealing how fiendishly clever he was.

You having your own Easter egg hunts yet? We're about that age.

Ours is still pretty cold.

If I want an egg, I look in the fridge.

I've swum in colder. The heaters break in pools here more than I think they should, and AG was never about being dissuaded, so of course I was dragged with. It's not the worst once you're going.

Bah Humbug 04-17-22 11:47 AM

From AG's ride.

I just had a deviled egg. First one in about 15 years or so.

I don't think anyone is going to stalk us based on her riding radius... that's Live Oak Loop in Buda. Last summer I posted some pics of just the ostriches; the zebra and goat are new.

I can't believe I missed Paris-Roubaix. I fully intended to get back to the computer, but got caught up in getting some great work done around the house. The whole body is sore. I went up the ladder again, this time to trim the bougainvillea, with no ppe, and came back down lightly bloodied.

I can see pretty well with off the shelf reading glasses, at least well enough for riding. I've been using reading sunglasses on the bike for a few years and they work fine and I only pay about $20. I have some $400 prescription Ray Bans for driving but I don't want to use them on the bike.

Ostriches and emus are seen around here in places. Zebras - not so much.

Rather have a dog chase me than an ostrich. Those beeshes are mean.

I’m not familiar with that area. Nonetheless, I have no plans to stalk either of you. If I tried, you would just drop me and laugh.

A lady in my club is selling a 1970 VW bug. I went by and looked at it yesterday after the ride. It's been sitting for more than 10 years and her son is cleaning it up to sell.
The VW market is hot right now and people are asking crazy money for the older ones, like pre 1968. This one I looked at has potential but it's probably going to need an engine, along with tires, a windshield, interior, and more.
I think I'll stay out of it.

Could always get a plane with this kinda wing struts, a couple of bungee cords and Bob's your uncle.

Nothing quite like 50 miles of cold wind in your face. But this was pretty cool.

You're leaving a pretty good wake considering you are on a bicycle.

I wear bifocal wrap around glasses from the safety store. It's amazing how far they've come in clarity, styling, and quality. I think the most that I've ever paid is $20.

Lewes Ferry?? That's only 17 miles though.

In other news, my madone sounds like i’m sitting in an old rocking chair the whole time I am riding it. If that doesn’t do it visually for you, sounds like an old screen door blowing in the wind. A worn out mattress getting used for extracurricular activities. An old warped wooden floor being walked on.

If you don't care what you look like, Cocoons fit nicely over your regular glasses. I now use clip-oms though, because the Cocoons blocked too much air from ventilating my helmet.
