You shamefully won't even pry yourself out of Knoxville to go visit your buddy in NW Metro Atlanta (or something like that), so nobody will expect to see you elsewhere.

Today is another one of those cute calendar dates - 12202021

Tomorrow is another one, sorta.

We are leaving for Sedona Wednesday. The forecast is rain and cold. The two nice days are the day we arrive and the day we leave. :(

Kinky!

I left Knox County just two days ago.

he did 6 centuries before spring this year in zwift. I don't know how he does that. My ass goes numb after 20.

Left the lap top at home this morning. Had to go back and fetch it. I have a serious case of the Mondays.

When I went home to get it I snagged my wool hat on my neighbor's tree. Got back to the office to discover that there was a giant leaf stuck to it. I think that explains why the old lady sitting across from me on the bus was looking at me like I was nuts.

Sedona is a mountain bike destination. I haven't been, but friends rave about it.

Tacking...? That's an odd "safe' word....but...whatever, I don't judge.

I haven't been either. We want to do a fair amount of hiking, but if it is raining it's not likely that we will.

I have to be careful for a whole day after my Sunday rides, getting down on the floor to give Rango scritchies.

I managed to do 47% of a century on Zwift. It wasn't too bad, but I used getting a route badge for a tough route* as the incentive. It wasn't horrible, but it was a long time in the garage. I had to make sure I got out of the saddle periodically, whether the terrain required it or not.

*(The Pretzel, which combined all the climbs in Watopia at an earlier stage of the game, so no Alpe du Zwift, but it does include the Epic KOM from both sides as well as the Radio Tower once).

I learn all types of things on BF. Before today, I had not heard the term Richard Noggin before, although I did figure it out after a few seconds.

There is a member named Richard Cranium.

I think I once spent two hours minus pee breaks on the trainer and I've been doing a 90 min group ride once a week or so, which I find hard enough. I couldn't conceive of doing a century unless maybe it was laid back enough to listen to the most fascinating audio book ever produced.

Of course, you don't see me doing many outdoor centuries either.

I have seen friends do centuries on Zwift. No can do.

OTOH I would jump at the chance to do an outdoor century every weekend if the temps are above freezing.
