And it's not bad. If I can drag the whole family out for Mexican, it's usually to PA.

Nice shoes.

TYVM. It's the first pair I've had with a lightly padded tongue. The increase in comfort was a surprise to me!

There are a number of segments on the hill, so I don't know which was officially used, but it boils down to ~.5 miles at ~7% for around 160-170 feet of elevation per. She went up and down 168 times over the course of 23 hours 10 minutes. :twitchy:

Edit - this is, more or less, the segment in question - https://www.strava.com/segments/643393

That's cwazy.

Looks like this trip starting tomorrow has me in Rochester, Burlington, and Ithaca. Hope to hike to the falls in Ithaca, and in Burlington we stay right next to an REI store......

Slow night, everyone including Velo Vol must be exploring the discography of Yes.

Nope. I'm eating a bean burrito and wondering what your accomplishments were today.

Watching an olde Antiques Road Show, looking for my 25mm rim tape. The bicycle on this episode has gained value since 2006. #steelisreal

Oh?

I haven't bought a new pair in probably 6 years after wearing them almost exclusively for like 4. Direct correlation with how they eventually got too uncomfortable to wear if almost any walking was to occur.

I do have a sweet pair of green ones I used to fly in all the time that should see the light of day sometime :D

Also, hi tops or low?

Velo Vol 07-13-20 08:28 PM

I must have convinced YouTube that I'm a serious cyclist because it keeps recommending cycling content.

Also, kindly post videos that have not been flipped. :crash:

I sometimes watch old tv shows on that channel (dailymotion) and they are usually flipped. I think it's done to prevent recognition by automatic copyright detection software.

I did cut one of my lawns. :bday:
I had a taco salad for dinner. The rest was pretty much SSDD.

I accomplished a nap today and that's about it. Tomorrow i hope to accomplish a ride and then shop for food and do laundry. Big day.

edit: and probably another nap

Unfortunately I was putzing around so didn't pay much attention, but it was one of those military folders.

I got a couple of things done. My favorite accomplishment was having a peach milkshake from Chick Fil A

Yeah, they're impossible for me to walk or stand much in also. Great for desk jockeying or goofing around on casual bike rides, however.

These are low tops in light redwood. I also have some hightops in orange, hightops in tiffany blue, and midtops in burgundy.

No kudos unless you mow the entire lawn.

have you been to Robert Treman State Park just south of Ithaca? Itís beautiful.

Bah Humbug 07-14-20 04:57 AM

Fake miles this morning. Rest day tomorrow. TSS for the week will be pathetic.

I have a good number of small world stories, several of which involve bike touring. Added another one last night....

I am a member of a touring page on Facebook. Guy posts a photo of him and his wife that includes a short story about them meeting 25 years ago when he had been a LBS manager in AZ. The two got married and ended up touring around the world. Looked at the photo, remembered the AZ LBS angle and realized I had meet them at the end of my 2000 Andalucia tour. We had camped at a campground just outside of Sevilla. Another interesting angle is that all three of us had racks and bags made by Robert Beckman. Not exactly common. Beckman used to be with the legendary Bruce Gordon, but they had some sort of falling out in the 90s and went their separate ways.
