Yup, it led to a huge home course advantage. I went back for a few alumni/alumnae races and was dumbfounded at what we used to do, and on regular road racing shoes. They still have Tiger Jayhawks?

Did you get kudos?

Hello #LPLO my old friend...

Yup. We have the whole house. It’s pretty modest by LA standards, 2BR 1BA. I would estimate it to be around 1700SF.

So, about $1.5 million? (not kidding)

Indeed. Riding a tandem attracts quite a bit of attention on its own, add in being scantily clothed and you get IRL kudos aplenty.

It's funny when we look at the houses in upstate NY and just laugh because they look free compared to Austin and Boulder and Raleigh.

I love checking small town Midwest and Plains state Zillow listings, all those pretty nice houses for 5 digits.

LOL. In your dreams you still wouldn’t have the fashion sense.

I once was on a flight leaving NY and heading to Maine while hurricane Bob was still off North Carolina, and that plane did everything but flip completely upside down, though it tried. Fortunately I was in a super reliable prop DC-3.

Just saying, at best tomorrow’s flight is likely to be a very rough ride.

I fear for those who go The Full Monty and ride one of them cutout saddles.....

Thinking of moving to Iowa?

I should get mine rewaxed and take a pic. Could call them the golden calves.

My legs are a bit bigger, but I didn't want to be immodest. :o

I mean, if it's good enough for the Vegan Cyclist...

Where's your video?

We've arrived in VA. I don't think that the lawn had been mowed since we were last in VA.

Also, there's a tree, an honest-to-god, 12' tall tree, that has spring up from one of the bushes. Oy.

Never really considered Iowa.

Maybe Omaha... Kind of a shame they enclosed the porch, but I could undo that and a couple other things.

Haven't posted a wine pic lately. This one is a bargain I found. Can't get Napa Valley Cabinet Sauvignon without spending some $$.
So far I'm very pleased especially for the price.

First hike today from Mountain Village to Alta Lakes. About an 1800' elevation change from our start to destination. 7.5 miles traveled round trip. The old man in the group required some rest stops due to altitude. Had rain, hail and sun. Exhaustion factor is high right now.

Climbs were steep enough on the way out that the mountain bikers we saw were walking their bikes up. Would have been a fun ride back down.

Fun day, and gorgeous country.

When I got an Eliel jersey for an event, I chose M. It looks like a child's. Forewarned is forearmed.

Maybe I misread his post, but I thought he was leaving today. Afternoon his time.

The Global Cycling Network production team failed to show up.
