I know, some graphing software might do an even better job but to use it I'd have to learn it's architecture and who's got THAT much time?

I can relate.

I hacked into your computer and found the one you've been working on all year:

Why does 3rd base need a "coach"? Dumb.

Or the bike shop could fix it, since they put the cables on. But taking it back over there is a pain.

You realize that's not how it works, right? CPI did not increase that much from month to month. That's a year-to-year increase.

I once went to a birthday party in Seattle on a warm, sunny day. All the out of town folks were relaxing in the shade, and all the local folks were out in the open soaking up the sun. Gotta get it when you can. :lol:

I would not be happy living in the northwest.

See, now, I avoid that issue by not doing 30 sets.....

A 3rd base coach is critical to winning. The 1st base coach is the one I see little use for, other than to remind you how many outs there are.

Finished my club-mate’s :bday: ride. He invited six of his friends to do the ride with him to celebrate, but he extended the invite to a small group of us as well. So we had the bday boy, HIS six friends (who I had not met before), and five of us who went along too. It turns out his friends are serious cyclists and kept gapping/dropping the birthday boy. We would regroup periodically. But about 15 miles from the end, they all took off and left him for dead. I and my 4 friends stayed back with the birthday/ride leader and stayed with him until the end.

I don’t know if it’s ironic or just “tough love,” but if I invited a bunch of friends to my ride and they dropped me like that, I would be kinda pissed.

Thoughts??

I agree. But that’s guys . . . guys by default are dicks. Especially in groups of 3 or more.

So. Mixing the 50 Open, the 60 Open and the 70 Open is crazy. I'm not sure what the answer is, but racing with 50 year old past Tour and Giro racers, is hard. The 70 years old were chicanes, the 50 year olds caught us, then we mixed in. They didn't want us there, but we had to integrate, otherwise our field would be divided. There were teams that had racers in both the 50's and 60's that would work together, which made it tough for singletons like myself. So, I got to race with angry fast kids, with good team tactics. I'm happy I hung in there, but things need to change.

Yeah thatís pretty much what I thought. My friend was not obviously annoyed so he probably knows his friends are like that and accepted it. Too much testosterone IMO.
