Aw, that's nice of you to say. As Jim Hendrix sang, excuse me while I kiss this guy!

They are not long for this world.

Nope. Salsa is much more homogeneous than gumbo is.

Poppycock! Not even a good effort. Concede gracefully.

Dropped my bike today. Well more slid down a light pole.

Was at Yorktown Beach and wanted to snap a picture with the water in the background. Bike slid down the light pole. Scuffed the side of the bike but I think I can buff it out.

The picture was never taken.


Today was freeeeeeezing.

I held back from using the 'crash' and 'fall' words when that new cockpit came into the world. But I smelled it.

Wow. I am envious. It's 6+ hours away for us, so we went for a long weekend to Lake Placid. We rode from Lake Placid (which is also good for cycling, as I am sure you know). I do plan to come again but have other climbs to hit first. Likely will try Mt Baldy when we go to LA in February and Mt Mitchell sometime later in 2022. The European ones will have to wait,

I like The Whey. It's more expensive, but it has the same stuff Labdoor says is good. https://labdoor.com/

Not more expensive when you wait for the big sales and buy it by the 5 kilo bag as we do.

These look good. But I am guessing they may not be safe to summit in February?

Depends on whether we have any snow/ice obviously but they are higher by 2000 feet than the highest road on Baldy.
Plus, this gives me an excuse to post a pic from Hwy 39.

Try to keep it on one piece a little longer, so that we can ride when I get there.

No. I'm sufficiently sketched out from the description.

I was able to wipe off the marks with a rag. Crisis averted. Thanks for keeping the faith.

I hope so do (nearby) Mitchell at some point next year as well. If our schedules overlap it would be fun to ride with you for you to drop me :thumb:
