First real ride, albeit a short one, with the Schwalbe Pro 1 Addix TLEs. Nice. Tires. They're just a bag of contradictions, but in a good way. Soft, but firm. So grippy and sure-footed, but they feel like they roll so easily. They are under-sized on my rims, they're 28s but measure 26mm, so I was thinking that I'd want to buy some 30s next time, but I'm not so sure of that, now.

I suppose that is reasonable, although I would say even 10 is too many. Would suggest break into groups of 3-5.

My club is still officially not doing any rides. Of course people are getting together and riding but it’s not club sanctioned.

Our first crit is on the 28th, which also happens to be the same day I fly to Wichita to go get Lotus. Go figure.... Social distancing while signing up, masks on at the start line, and they will let us know when to remove them prior to the start. :wtf:A good crit racer is within six feet of eight people during a race, and there is more than breath out there. I'm super tired of all the weird mixed messages out there, including our so called professionals and experts.

What's wrong with wearing a mask?

My senior year of college and slightly beyond I lost 90 lbs. in 9 months. Many Thursdays during my last semester I would treat myself to.a Double Whopper with cheese, large fries and a strawberry shake.

What a great semester that was. Despite a full course load I only went to class 7 times a week. Three courses met one/week for 3 hrs. The other two met twice/week for 1.5 hrs. each time. And my last class was from 3-6 on Thursday. Maybe 7 people in it. The professor was very eclectic. We would meet in a diner. Sometimes weíd have beers. Had a 3 hr. gap before that class and would often take a quick 12 mile ride.

I don't get to race, as about that time time I'll be heading to Wichita by way of Phoenix.

Will you race? After you get back, of course.

Understood. That said, I think itís prolly too soon to ride in a large group like that. But wtf do I know?

No. Getting the pin out made all the difference. But the healing has continued too. Except for its inability to flex, it feels normal, all but a slight lack of feeling in the very tip. That will likely return before the surgery. It really,really wants to flex.


That is awesome, congrats. Don't do it again.

My first year truly out on my own, my weight dropped from 220 to 145 in a reasonably short time. Prolly a year. I had never bothered to learn about preparing meals or proper nutrition.

I used to count calories and plan all of my meals when I was back in college. It worked, at the time I was into body building so I would go through months of bulking and months of cutting.

Since I started cycling last year, my direction has been to over all fitness. Making the best choice when it comes to food, not over indulging, having ice cream when I want it, and I have seen really good results. I donít keep track of my food, the only thing I do keep track of is my miles, and my steps and over all my health and fitness is better than when I was detailing everything I was putting into my body.

disclaimer: this is working for me now at this moment in my life, who knows what the future brings.

Exactly my take. I'm not doing it yet, but when I consider the tragic demographics of the disease and the dilution factor, cycling in a group seems relatively benign.

We are doing unsanctioned TTs with 2 min start intervals.

Weighed in at the pharmacy machine this afternoon at 146 pounds.

MoAlpha 06-10-20 04:07 PM

Just ordered a pair of these. Vamos a ver, as seedsbelize says.

yup. Same here. I managed to get by without those features before there was strava, I can continue to do so now.
