Must be pizza night in Addiction. Heading out to pick up some professionally-made pizza.

He would have to find her Strava profile, first.

Pretty sweet. I like the I like you photo.

Richmond Va is full of these, not so much here.

"I Like You" is evidently a store. I have no idea of what they sell.

I could go for some Richmond beers.

Love the pics WhyFi

especially the first one

Thanks!

I like them all just fine, but the second one, with all of the stars, pulls at my heart strings. That's outside of First Avenue, a concert venue that shot to prominence with the rise of Prince (it was his home base and the club in Purple Rain). All of the stars are acts that have played First Ave - an act will occasionally get covered up in favor of another, but Prince will be there as long as the building stands, I think.

Everybody has to be a critic. :rolleyes:

Got out for a second ride on the day, this time with the kids; the boy riding his bike, the girl in the Burley. 11 miles, around a couple of the neighborhood lakes. I was impressed with both: the boy for his endurance, the girl for not going bat**** crazy in the trailer.

A Scottish acquaintance posted today that he put shorts on today for the first time since the lockdown and somebody must have shrunk them. :)

We'll get a cinnamon roll at the village.

The last 4 miles gains 2000 feet. Lots of 15%.

Did he ever try riding in a kilt?

Xcaret, a large and impressive ecopark on the riviera, bought some land and is connecting two or more cenotes by an underground river. Northeast of town. Thankfully not on this side. Buses roll in from Cancun. Once in Valladolid, Chichen is only a skip away. I picked a friend up at Cancun sirport, a couple months ago. We planned to stop there and bicycle the next morning. The downtown area was so full of white folks, I freaked out, and we stayed out on the edge of town. In the morning we rode out to a cenote I know and were the only ones there, for well over an hour. Always a treat to find an unknown one. Too cold toswim on that particular morning.

I rode enough to eat a whole pizza today, but that's not what I'm having for dinner.

Two whole pizzas?

But we do have a TT/Tri bike pizza cutter:

I have a Park Tool pizza cutter somewhere, but we gave up pizza years ago. Sad!

That comes after you have 5000 feet in your legs. I usually skip the last climb and am happy to turn around at the village.

I had my 60th birthday ride up there. A friend drove up the day before with a cake and they kept it at the lodge. I had no idea until after we finished lunch and they brought out the cake which had a picture of me on it wearing one of my fredly jerseys. That will be 6 years ago in about a week.

The doc was not exagerating when he gave me those instructions. He also told me that re-attaching fingers is one of their most common surgeries. Mine was the second that day. And the man who occupied my bed, ahead of me, had the same injury. The nurses were very familiar with it.
Valladolid, unfortunately, has gone to mega tourism. It's really sad to see. Such a nice town.

I don’t want to imagine how that mofo throbs. Sounds like you were in experienced hands.

It's funny (though of course not ha-ha funny) to think of "just have to sew another finger back on and we can break for lunch". It would be interesting to see their stats on what causes all the severings.

Glad to hear you're healing up though.

Salad and a nice plate o spaghetti. 200+ tss ride on two water bottles and a pbj. I did have a slice of apple bread, pre ride. With these 6 day ride weeks, I'm slowly approaching within 10 pounds of datlas weight. What a shame the season is in the ****ter.

Today was the 11th riding day in a row for me and I'm nowhere near datlas weight.

Now that my foot's healed up pretty good, I'll be ramping up mileage-wise, but probably not losing much weight-wide.
