Yes. Spotted lantern fly from Asia. They have invaded parts of the NE. I stomped at least a half dozen today. They are very prevalent around my office building. Lots of plant life across the street.

There are endemic in this part of the world. And unwelcome. By me anyway.

New cleats and new shoes. Off to do a 35-40 mile ride. What could possibly go wrong? :innocent:

Bring tools. New cleats often loosen up on the first ride and need to be tightened.

Shoe pics??

T minus 3 days and counting. All systems go despite covid spike in LA county (and everywhere else for that matter).

I am glad we did not choose Spirit for our airline.

Are your parents not worth more than 2 million dollars?

There is such a thing as being too cheap.

We fly to western Colorado on the 20th. I'll be triple masking.

I think the bigger problem is that Datlas probably doesn't smell like a pack of Marlboros, pint of Everclear, and regret.

Well, let's not make any assumptions.

No drink. No drugs. No smoke. Not too many regrets.

I am askeered the TSA will confiscate any bike tools that I might bring. I will have to ask the FoF from whom I am borrowing the bicycle if he has a pump and multi-tool etc. I can borrow.

Supposedly they are ok with tools less than 7 inches long, so I would like to think I am good. There is a bad joke there but I won't touch it.

Pump won't be a problem. Multi-tool might if it has a knife. If no knife blade, it shouldn't be a problem.

Anything that can assplode will be a problem.

I've got a friend with a Wahoo unit that is a total POS. Consistently records multi Ks of elevation on rides as somewhere between 0-200 feet, drops his PM etc.

I'm 100% satisfied w/ my 530

Excuse me while I reply to this post from three days ago. Over the years I have observed some people who just simply seem to lack the ability to be alert. When I'm riding I'm more or less constantly on alert for other traffic, road hazards, what my fellow riders are doing etc. I don't know if that just comes naturally to me or if it's a residual effect of my time in the military.

Anecdotal, I know, but I can think of at least three people off the top of my head who have had multiple crashes and when I ride with them it sure seems like they are somewhat blind to obvious dangers. I'm drawing a bit of a fine line here between being reckless and clueless. Anyway, most of those people have quit riding over the years and as much as I hate to say it, that's probably for the best.

I remember one guy in particular -- we were riding side by side in a double paceline and he started drifting over towards me. I didn't say anything because I assumed he would see me before he put me in the ditch but he just kept drifting until I had to yell at him before it was too late. He felt terrible. In hindsight, and putting together some questionable behavior on other rides with this guy in the past, I came to the conclusion that he doesn't have any peripheral vision. It would explain most of his crashes.
