I say this as a fully vaccinated person. I hope this is the last time you feel the need to share this information.

Looks like you could also have rented an eBike to motor up the hills. This has got to sting.

Win-win compromise:

Mojo31 agrees not to do any more COVID posts if you stop posting music videos.

I can't even post Jay-Z's version here, even the radio edit version is too much. :lol:

Not familiar with Jay Z's music. I was thinking of this:

Why do you hate music?

12 miles and nearly 1800' elevation gain of mountain biking today.

It's very rough terrain around here. I somehow managed to not hurt myself or my bike but a full suspension would be really lovely :rolleyes:

Bah Humbug 08-29-21 02:04 PM

ls01, please keep us posted. Fingers crossed.

My very first concert. I don't remember if there was an opening act. 1968 ish.

I was planning a short ride today. Maybe 32, maybe 40 miles. After all, I Zwifted yesterday for two hours, because I figured there might be smoke again today.

BUT it was a beautiful day, and I said, "What the hell. Why not?" and did a 55 mile ride anyway. Now in desperate need of food, shower, and a nap. In that order.

The aunt of a friend of mine played Eleanor Roosevelt in that movie.

That's a pretty stiff breeze alright.

1:16? Really? Perhaps I'm not understanding correctly again. Like the 4k thing. Of course I'm looking at it on a small computer screen, and have no idea how big the paper is.

In one experiment, for example, they exercised young and old athletes to the same degree of dehydration and measured a bunch of stuff, including ratings of thirst. The old guys felt less thirsty.

Did my Brandywine Century. Of course for some reason I only got credit for 99.6 miles while my friends, who did the exact same ride, got full credit. It was a fine ride. Now I am bushed!

I am suitably crushed.

The tiktok thots say that old guys are just as thirsty as the young ones.

As I neared home, about 3 miles out, I was passed on a little short climb by a guy on an Ebike. Half a mile later, there he was on the side of the road, obviously having some problem. I confess to smiling a bit inside.

Did they offer brandy or wine at the rest stops? Seems reasonable.

No way I could keep that inside. I would go full Nelson

Sub five hours?
Kudos anyway.

You just have a very narrow range in tastes.

Bah Humbug 08-29-21 04:52 PM

Interestingly, I notice CC, at least, has a full range of Di2 shifters and derailleurs available. Hopefully that's promising for Tuesday.
