Oh but 290w is the test result from this morning. Up 15w from the last time I tested over a year ago, not up 15w from this morning’s result.

At some points, very similar, yes :lol:

Ah, okay. That was my original interpretation. And I'm pretty much stuck at 3 W/kg so I should talk.

For the sake of nostalgia I'm looking through my old Map My Ride uploads from when I was in Texas. Some strong memories there, apparently. I'd love to go ride those roads again.

Also, I was significantly quicker back then, when I was still young.

Back in the 90s, I regularly cruised along at 19mph. And on the 2001 TOSRV I averaged 19mph. Of course pacelines were involved there. Those days are gone.

On the subject of camber. The Veritas will make an infinitesimally steeper angle right at the business edge of the blade. Though said edge is not round.

I don't think I've ever averaged a speed like that. Maybe on the half-dozen group rides I've done, but those were a long time ago.

37°C and it's not noon yet.

rjones28 show us your snowshoeing heatmap!

99% of activities are within a two mile radius of my back door.

Maybe you should go discover some new routes? #YOLO

I actually got a follow-up email from Comcast regarding my close encounter with their van a couple weeks ago.

Their representative asked me to call and discuss. She asked again if I got a license plate or truck number. I told her I don't have that but I do have exact location and exact time. She said that's not enough for them to identify the driver. I accepted that, although I bet if the driver committed a more serious crime they could track him/her down. Whatever.

I did ask her to be sure to spread the word to drivers that they should be more careful with cyclists on the road, she she promised me she would.

Case closed.

Walked out of the office. It’s starting to sprinkle, and that earthy musky smell of petrichor is quite strong.

When you teach me a new word, :thumb:

It's been reeking of that here.

IKR. In the early 90s I rode from Philadelphia to the NJ shore solo. Started the computer in Camden after the slow crossing of the bridge. Stopped timing at the top of the bridge into Ocean City. Average speed was 21.1 mph. Solo. Distance was over 70 miles.

Feeling better enough to be back on top of the household. Looks like the poor boy had an issue with his ear before you rescued him.

Maybe I'll extend to a three mile radius next season.

Gotta say, I’m not a bourbon guy, but I’m enjoying the bottle of belle meade I was given out of a gift basket at work at Christmas time..

Tipping the left ear is common for Trap-Neuter-Release programs.

Another week were I have to wear a sweatshirt on the tractor while mowing the lawn to keep warm. Then it started raining and I got wet and colder. I had the heat blasting in the car to try to warm up. :rolleyes:

What does it meant if it’s the right ear?
