For me, it would probably be "urine", because "coffee" is 6 letters.

:mad:

Must be below your FTP? :innocent:

I checked the size, and got an XL. It definitely qualifies for the "If it zips, it fits" category - it's snug! Like paint! On the bike it's not a problem, but when I got back on Sunday after wearing it for my long ride, I was sitting there feeling like maybe my breathing was constricted a little - then I unzipped it and it was fine! So, maybe just a bit small. Though, again, it felt fine on the bike. Definitely doesn't flap!

OTOH, Mrs. GeneJockey likes how I look in it, so I'm keeping it!

I used the July challenge discount to buy a long sleeve Pro jersey, but this one I bought in XXL. I figure a base layer might make the XL unzippable!

Did my time this weekend. Got my discount. Ordered a Pro II jersey in sage green. It will pair nicely with the grey bibs I have on the way from Neopro. If Le Col does these discounts on a regular basis, I expect to have more of their kit in my pile.

My latest jersey purchase was dayglo green, so I wouldn't blend into the background. I don't want to give anyone who might knock me down the excuse of saying they didn't see me. Sage green and grey go in direct opposition to that premise. Do you have other means of being seen?

What? Why does that matter? You won’t notice an increase in your electricity bill.

We haven’t even noticed an increase from charging the car.

Or, get the 77” OLED. HDR power consumption is only 210 kWh/1000h

The jersey will be used on my MTB, mostly. Also, most of my road miles are with groups of 10+ riders, so not being seen isnít a big issue. I have a variety of options for different situations.

I got a long sleeve jersey with this month's discount in "Saffron". I'd call it orange. Mrs. GJ likes the idea of that color more than the Navy I got the previous month. What I really want is something lighter, without being either lime green or signal orange, but without being too "Maillot Jaune-y", which feels a bit pretentious.

I did get a bit of a burn on my neck. Then I went and got my hair cut, and of course the stylist used the clippers to get rid of my Old Guy Neck Fuzz, the stubble from which is now conspiring with the sunburn to drive me mad.

That dman cop thinking I was smuggling weeeeeed got me so traumatized I had two nightmares last night. At least that meant I ripped the cranks off my trainer and PRed a Tacx course.

I'm in EP right now, and it's a lovely, rainy evening. One of the first sights I saw was a guy in a cowboy hat, riding a segway, and carrying a Chihuahua - EP trying to outweird Austin :)

I get the Old Guy Neck Fuzz, usually an inch long by the time I get a haircut. Also get obnoxiously long ear hair if I don't trim it and Andy Rooney eyebrows.

And that's without even mentioning the nose hair.

Yeah, didn't want to gross everyone out.

I used to try different words, but TEARS is my favorite starter. Then if it misses my second word is MOUND. If TEARS results in just a yellow T, then I go with MOUNT second.

Bummer. Hope you get back to "negative" soon.

The dew point at 4:30 this morning was 75. Went out back with my coffee and instantly started sticking to myself. Heat index tomorrow could hit 106. But Canadian air is coming to the rescue starting Wednesday.

I used to enjoy being in EP. I wonder if I would now.

Of course. It never crossed my mind that folks ride in groups. That is one habit I doubt I'll ever develop

We had our outdoor graduation party for Hannah yesterday afternoon. It was super humid and quite warm. Even so, I do believe a good time was had by all.
