Got through TSA without them wondering about the funny bike stuff (pedals, multi tool, mini pump) in my carry-on.

Next stop, LAX.

Remember, workday traffic sucks in SoCal especially if you are going the direction of the popular commute routes.

Here is a variation of the one I linked a couple weeks back. It avoids the busy climb part of Angeles Crest. Again, lot of possible variations. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38624709

Thanks. I downloaded these to my Garmin just before we left. Are you riding this weekend? I might ask to tag along.

People are so meh about haywire hearts. I have never experienced anything except a normal heartbeat. I was rather freaked out by it.

If you don't already know, I can't tell you.

I wouldn't call what we have quality riding for the likes of @datlas.

I'll be riding somewhere, likely with a small group of misfits. We've been doing 50-60 lately and it's casual. We would be happy to have you.

I've thought about implementing this protocol for life simplification several times in the past, this year I'm going to finally follow through with it.

I'm only going to own sheets with vertical stripes by the end of this year.

A few record low highs were set yesterday in Wyoming.

That's too complicated.

All of our sheets for the master and guest bedroom are beige.

The kids' rooms are different, but they are only used 4 or 5 times per year so it's not an issue.

I do not have a sheet protocol. Should I?

It can make sense to have one.

White sheets on every bed n the house is our protocol.

WhyFi 02-23-22 11:35 AM

Did an hour long (fake) ride with B. Brevet today, on the Chain Chomper course in the Makuri Islands. Since a chunk of that course is on gravel, I picked up the (fake) Cervelo Aspero for the ride. It was certainly easier on the uphill gravel section, but it was most definitely harder on the pavement; I was above 300w a *lot* more than as is usual with Brevet. Granted, a part of that may have been the small group, prolly no more than 10-15 at any given time, which makes it easier to get detached, but still, I averaged 20w or so more than I usually would with that group.

Maybe I'll do that group/course again tomorrow on a road bike. Of the ~24min loop, only ~6min of that is the gravel climb, and I'm guessing that, on the whole, the road bike will be easier for me.

I love white sheets, but I'm finally done with trying to put the fitted sheet on sideways.

This ends now!

(well, in the not so distant future anyways)

Just returned from the gym, I'm too tired to even make a smoothie.

If you like white sheets, but need a guide for the direction, you can always mark the foot of the sheet with a black Sharpie where it goes under the mattress. Then you can mix and match as well without the stripes clashing.
