You guys are cruel.

But, reasonable.

Tough, but fair, IOW. I'm good with that.

When you think all truck drivers in Tejas are french showers, this story appears on the FB page of a local cycling group:

Just to share a story that is the opposite of the diesel driving D-bag from a few weeks ago. Today, I was riding in the afternoon heat. A big white diesel truck pulling a trailer slowed beside me. I was totally expecting a major confrontation. The passenger (a young man in his lower 20's) lowered his window... he then reached out to me with an ice cold bottle of water. It was much appreciated. Not everyone sucks. https://static.xx.fbcdn.net/images/e...270c_1f3fd.pnghttps://static.xx.fbcdn.net/images/e....5/16/2764.png

In the interest of disclosure, I should note that my clock is routinely cleaned by a couple of much stronger guys my age.

Yes, I just turned 68. I know a couple guys who are 70 and they still are fast enough to stay with some of the fast guys. One of them has the body of a 35 year old and the other is a small climber who might be 130 pounds.
The club had changed so much over the 33 years I have been a member. The main "A" group has changed since the pandemic and the group is smaller than ever before.
A good thing is my one friend who used to lead the fast group had gained weight and got tired of battling with the other fast guys so he has formed a group which benefits me. They're all friends and they don't mind if they have to wait. They didn't have to wait today but I might be paying for that now.

Bought some reeseís and a coke. Instantly felt like I was going to vomit and had to cut the ride short.

Salt is often a better option in these cases.
I speak from experience.

Only after I gave her a donut.



Now if only your cycling miles matched thatÖ..

Yea Iím not sure why I went with a reeseís. I usually get an electrolyte drink and some sort of protein bar plus a sugary something. Not sure why I didnít do the usual other than this ď7-11Ē sucked.

So, a PayDay bar, instead of Reeses.

Looks like he's barfing into the flat 6. Calling God on the Great Orange Telephone, you might say.

The average age on my retired guy’s ride today was 75.2 years. My wife was the youngest and I was second youngest. :lol:

I'm sorely tempted to post this video in a certain disc brake thread, but I'll just post it here. Plenty of Isetta action, but only a little bit of Isetta ass. :)

Woah, the frontal view of Block's Pink Pig is insane.

Because you were not of sound mind.

OMG, there's a couple of Padres fans down there.
