Discretion is the better part of valor. It's already windy AF out there, and too much of my route is totally exposed, plus about 8 miles of it would be directly into the teeth of of it, at a time when it's supposed to be 20-30 mph with higher gusts.

I am too old for this nonsense. This is why I don't cancel my Zwift subscription.

Exactly.

Not saying the jockeys add nothing to the equation, but me riding a fast horse could beat the world's best jockey riding a slow horse.

I thought you were a glass half full guy. We know you l-o-v-e hyphens.

Id pay money to see you on a thoroughbred.

Glass half full of poison, maybe.

Yep, so was mine.

I bought it after the ‘99s came out.

The jockey “launched” that horse! Horse had a great kick!

Some guys buy their wife flowers but I like to take my wife to them. :thumb:

First a dream bike. Then you take here to the flowers.

Ole Dennis wants something. 😝

It also gets into optimal positioning... just like bike racing.

Have you ever ridden a horse?

Office park management would frown upon that.

I come from a long line of horsemen, mister!

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:

My rona came with a sore throat so bad I couldn't sleep through it. MoAlpha suggested I get tested, due to that alone.. I was only down for a couple days.

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

40 degrees proper. I was going to do some painting this afternoon. I'll wait for another day.

Yes, we are nearing the end of redbud season. They were spectacular this year.

We're just starting to see buds on our redbud.

Also, not to sound like VV, but this is looking like it'll the be the Year without Spring, in MN. Well, we've had some proper spring days, with mild temps and sunshine, but they've been few and far between. It's been long stretches of rain/snow mix, with temps in the 30s and 40s, broken up by the odd day of sunshine. Friday and Saturday was probably the nicest (only?) two day stretch of pleasant weather that we've had this year and then - boom - we're looking at 90 next week. I felt a little out of sorts riding in the high-60s yesterday, so I know I'm going to be dragging my tongue the next few weeks.

I come from a long line of people named George Smith, but I'm not one of them.

Yeah, I mean we already had a winter without rain, so a year without summer would make it all less....flammable.

Why would you want to beat a jockey?

We are getting 90s this week, too, but we are also in a wind tunnel, again. Hate the wind.

Horrible, schizoid weather this year. :mad:
