Why not? I'm sure you can work out a few visits.

She loves her new backyard, and all the dollies her sisters have left her.

:love:

In other new, years after I first wanted it, long-sleeved summer jerseys finally appear to be a thing. My newfound riding frequency means I keep running out, so I picked one up.

Nice lawn.

Yeah, no - no one just beat me in a flying half mile by 11 seconds. Not anyone around here, at least. Likewise, no one beat my time on a flat, 1.2 mile stretch by 55 seconds. Damn people and their phones that they forget to pause. :notamused:

Very... odd. The guy that "dethroned" me while driving around in his car just "dethroned" me again... in his car, again. Looking at his rides over the past week, two have been legit with a Garmin Fenix showing HR - 17-18mph averages on bike paths... but then he's got *five* rides - uh, "rides" - in his car, four of which have already been flagged by others. :foo: What's the motivation? Pissed about full segment info going behind the pay wall?

I had a guy that I would sometimes ride with do something similar. I called him out on it, and he never talked me again. Might be a coincidence.

I had a feeling you were going to say that.

None of our girls have every destroyed a toy. We weed through them, and stuff the extra's in a box in the garage. Delta loved them, Apryl, not so much. Indy loved them, then Georgia took that interest away. Indy seemed cool with it, but we're not going to let that happen this time. Share, or none. So far, it's share. Yeah, it's time to weed through again. :) Of course, you see the toy crate is way more better to gnaw on than any old toy...

Maybe, but that seems an odd way to go about expressing his anger. For the car rides, did you see if it was a case of not turning it off after the bike, or the whole thing was a ride? Is the Fenix new? It's possible he just got it (they were on sale very recently) and is used to recording from an Edge (or his phone) and is forgetting to turn the Fenix off.

Or yeah, he's a jerk.

Iíve seen a few of those here lately.

phrantic09 07-06-20 05:17 AM

Great day... overslept two hours, no bikey for me, I even cleaned it up and made it pretty yesterday all for nothing.

No, it's not a case of a ride that needs to be trimmed - it's all car, no legitimate activity content whatsoever. Also, he stopped doing fake rides with his Fenix, which captures HR, and has recently done them exclusively with the iPhone app.

whatís the purpose of this, to stick it to strava?

datlas 07-06-20 05:41 AM

Strava has jumped the shark IMO and although I still use it to track my miles and see what friends are doing, I have stopped looking at segments entirely.

datlas 07-06-20 05:41 AM

Back to the grind. Telemedicine visits this morning and in-person masked visits this afternoon.

I’m using the first vacation time of the year the next couple of days. Woke up early enough to give me a decent ride but just wanted to relax for a bit.

Currently enjoying the (minimal) nice weather with a cup of coffee on the back porch. Then will help the 13 year old with his gaming PC build (the little guy has been saving for almost a year for it :love:), and then time for some garage cleaning and woodworking.

I really only look at segments to track my own efforts and monitor improvement.

Building your own PC is a treat.
