You implied that we could limit the effect on the economy and have a return to normalcy if we all got vaccinated. Resentment towards the unvaccinated is the direct result of that line of thought, The division is a feature, not a bug

A large boulder about eight-feet tall sits on Sleepy Hollow Road between east of Monitor after falling from a nearby slope. The road is closed until at least Friday when a contractor is expected to break it into pieces and remove it.

Im against measures to limit the spread of covid 19, I see the war on covid like the war on drugs and the war on terror. Does more harm than good

Relax. For better or worse, you're not going to convince this bunch of much at all. I've tried, and they don't get it.

Ok guys, let's draw the curtain on the Covid conversation. We were able to vent some strong feelings about some important topics of our times, and I'm happy to see that we didn't go overboard with it (at least so far as I've seen, I haven't read it all). But the rest of the open forums can't discuss this topic and so we can't continue to discuss it on this level either. The politics in particular is forbidden, we clear on that LarrySellerz?

Congrats to all for keeping it civil and avoiding personal attacks! If I get fired we'll all know why. :beer:

Nevermind.

Well, THAT was exhausting! I just rode Stage 1 of Tour de Zwift. They had 3 rides available, 14, 17, and 30 miles. I'd signed up for the 17, but on a whim I switched to the 30. Starting at 7 PM. I guess I'll find out later tonight whether THAT was a mistake!

I found a group to ride with, about 8 riders, and oddly, 5 of them were on Tron bikes. I was keeping up with the group pretty well, but then shortly after the start of the second lap, it was like "Revenge Of The Tron Bikes" and they just took off on one climb, and even more so on the following descent.. I tried bridging, but they jut kept getting farther and farther away. I was all by myself for a while, but then I allowed two of the original 8 who HADN'T taken off to catch me, and rode with them the rest of the way. I managed a half-assed sprint at the end which put me in 70th out of 138, which is not bad. Pretty much median.

Then I had to collapse over the bars and breathe for a few minutes. I'm hoping this handles the jonesing I was mentioning earlier.

Damnit. I had to go and find out what this was about…

Closer inspection of the 7410 crankset I just received leaves me feeling even better about it. The rings aren't bad at all - the small ring is MUCH better than the one I took off the Ritchey back in 2019 - after 22 years - and the big ring looks about the same as the as the Ritchey takeoff. But I have another set on the way, that looked even better, and were pretty cheap.

We are tentatively going back to LA in late February and I do hope to borrow that bike again. This time plans include Mt Baldy.

Ugh, don't remind me. Maybe they make a QR chain catcher I can pop on.
