I had one years ago. I was riding on gravel and the light bulb lit up and I thought, "This is dumb."

New metric! Altitude Suffer Score.

Or for short... :innocent:

I don't know who or what you are talking about, but sadly the United States (or at least this state) is not stuck in DST. I wish it were!

Clearly, you have not read LoP’s post that was quoted in the first post you’ve quoted.

No, but the original awesome shovel isn't a very good musical instrument. But neither is the Fluglehorn.

Oh, ha - I don't know if I mentioned it, but we're a group in Turkey because I set the location as the town closest to 41° lat and 41° lng

Did someone make cycling caps for the 41?

Is an actual 41er riding the 3 Peaks Bike Race?

I *know* that I've seen some BF kit (yeah, I said it :D) and I'm pretty sure that I've seen some 41 kit, but it's been a while and I can't remember how I stumbled across it...

Oh, I figured it was because we were a bunch of turkeys.

Nossir. You did well.

Today was pretty hard. Last week, the like ride was 1.5 hours of Z1. This one was about half an hour. That's a lot of pedaling. (peddling)

All this musical instrument heat is over my head. Must be like if WhyFi and I got into roast mode with each other over knife steels.

Were you on 23mm tires?

WhyFi 07-26-20 06:18 PM

Welp, 1k isn't happening this month. I checked the family calendar and we've got timed entry tickets for the zoo on Wed, they've finally re-opened and the kids have been champing at the bit, so I'm not gettin' out of that one.

This week is still going. Maybe the week ends according to the location of the IP that set up the group. If so, I reckon have 'til 10pm my time. Not gonna take the gold, but at least kick Dan off he 5-spot podium :)

datlas 07-26-20 06:27 PM

I thought I did well this week, and am barely on the podium. Tough room.

I'll see what I can come up with next month in all the humidity.

Maybe I'll ride to Reno, even though the big event is canceled this year :(

So just toss in a Benjamin both weekend days every week. Done.

Sound plan! Since Saturday is one week and Sunday is the next week, I shouldn't have any fatigue issues, amiright?

BTW, I unintentionally misled you about the MLB at bat app for mobile. It is $29/year for all out of market games. This means you could watch every team but the Snakes. That is not such a bad thing...
