Yesterday was fun, temperature was near perfect and about 500 people did the ride. The wind was pretty nasty, so I ended up being slower than last year overall, but still happy with the effort.

There was a section where we had a decent pace line going, working fairly hard, where we were slower than I did it last year solo, the wind was probably 15-20 right in our faces.

Punctured at about 5 miles in, tire went town to about 35 PSI then sealed, the neutral support motorcycle was right there and had a pump so I didnít even need to use CO2. I lost maybe 3 minutes.

Iím pretty happy with the effort. Held a 2.7 W/kg average for the whole ride(over 4 hours), donít think I had anything left in the tank at the end.

Speaking of the Awesome Marigold jacket, [MENTION=107711]datlas[/MENTION] have you used yours yet?

Itís raining and windy and 44F, so it would be a good day for said jacket. But I am low on HTFU today. So not yet.

I'd be sure it was the rona except all the self administered RATs have come back negative. Time to call my doctor tomorrow and see if they want to come get a PCR test.

my achievements for the weekend were: getting dressed, luxing the lounge floor and doing a 900m walk around the block. the last two absolutely knackered me out. :(:mad::notamused:

Hang in there, best wishes for your recovery to HurryTFU.

Spot on. :roflmao2:

It was a fast start, so that helped. He was a tailgunner for half the race.

Skipped the cold wet ride, and watching the Giro. Thankfully GCN+ has it and it’s not blocked in USA.

The horse was the one running.

It's chilly in the quasi-north, too. A possible year-without-summer in the making.

The horse doesn't know where to go if the jockey doesn't tell it. Duh.

We got summer. The weather guy was all excited last night - "We FINALLY got into the triple digits"

I think I'd have been just fine waiting a while longer myself.

Here the jockey fell off and the horse kept running to the finish.

You must be new here.

“Most of the horses made it around the track, in the right direction, although many decided to stop to eat some grass on the way.“
