25į/93% humidity.
THis is why I wait until late morning. Yes it's warmer but the humidity drops precipitously as the air warms up.

Getting ready to go ride with my chest parachute. There will be about 10 others with chest parachutes, too. I hope they all don't get obese.

Yes, but will you be taking the Rolex bike?

4 is my average, but I get 3 or 5 more often.

I feel ya. I sat out and enjoyed my backyard this morning while it was still shady and 70į with a heavenly breeze. Shot a bunch of hummingbird activity, results coming shortly.

Busy morning. Woke up to thunderstorms so it was a perfect morning for doing post-vacation chores. My wife had to do 5 loads of laundry after being gone 8 days, mostly riding clothes and I cleaned 8 days of grime off of the bikes after riding in the woods. Lots of seeds, berries, etc.

Happiness is two lubed, cleaned and polished machines. :thumb:

Speaking of rice cookers. When Lisa Loeb said this made her life complete, I bought one of these for my wife about 23 or so years ago. Still works great:

Good ride, but by the end it was a hot and humid sweat-fest.

We are traveling to Philadelphia this afternoon to get Heidi’s BF who will be staying with us this week. It sounds like the plot for a bad Indie movie, but we hope this version has a good ending. We are making a food run to two of our favorite places for carry-out while we are there. One is middle eastern, the other is the best donuts place around.

Even Austin isn't peachy in January.

Raspberry season has peaked here. I ate a few morsels on my ride today.

I just checked the leaderboard. I am KOM but off the podium for miles. Sad!

Federal. And Alyanís for Middle Eastern food. Not quite Zahav, but Saturn prices.

While I havenít been there in some time, I really like Alyanís. The ex and I often went there before films at the Ritz. Good food and good prices.

Hitchhiking through Maine in 1980? We were taken home by someone, to camp in the yard of their farmhouse, with red raspberry bushes loaded with fruit. We were asked to help ourselves. Heaven.

I don't really have a Rolex bike unless it's one of the cheaper ones and it's used.

seedsbelize2 07-24-22 12:20 PM

Rode my best time trial in a long time and it didn't record for some reason. Sad! I still returned home smiling.

Do I go out for a .4 mile ride to kick phrantic09 off of the podium? :innocent:

:p

big john 07-24-22 01:43 PM

Watching the Tour de Femmes and some of the bikes have rim brakes. Didn't notice if any of the men had 'em.

datlas 07-24-22 02:19 PM

Hot town, sumner in the city.

New kit day :bday:

Gore C5 jersey and bibs in orbit blue, black C3 bib, green daily jersey.

I think this makes 4 sets of bibs+jerseys now, more than Iíve ever had before.

went for a hike yesterday. Nice easy loop up a small hill. The wind at the top was rather cold and lazy. Still a good day out.

After those 3 disappointing rides this week where my HR and RPE seemed to be way too high for the speed I was going, today I decided to go gentle. I aimed for mostly HR Z1/Z2, and didn't mark and chase down any other riders. Overall fairly slow, but nice and relaxing. I took the Litespeed, which I've managed to make into my most comfortable bike, and now with the R8000 group it really has the most seamless performance of any of my bikes. It's eerily quiet, like the only sound is the tires rolling over the tarmac, and when shifting the loudest sound is the soft *clik* of the STI lever.

Today's catch. They love that Mondara.
