This is the woman I am following. Not even sure which team she is on. Nothing in her activity feed about crashing yet.

Coincidentally, my wife's Mom's name was Nancy, and my wife also has a CD of the music from Evita.

She is 11th overall after today. She is on the FDJ team. She's almost 3 minutes back, just ahead of the American Veronica Ewers.

Since Mrs. rjones28 has been making more artisan loaves, we added a 10" Mercer bread knife to the collection. The 8" can handle the job okay, but it's too short for our tastes.

Yeah, I probably have the same Mercer. It's fine, but I wish that I would have gotten a Tojiro.

The top 6 are within a minute. The woman who got knocked off by her team car yesterday is in 10th As bad as her day was she only lost a minute and a half.

The one who took the wrong turn today was given the same time as the group she was with.

Kinda shameful that the course is poorly-marked enough for that to be possible.

How are people watching?

I sometimes joke that the best way to beat your friends on a ride is not to take a PED, but rather, slip a little beta blocker into their water bottles.

He doesn't listen. He's an associate of my regular doc. HIs nurse confirmed my allergies. He prescribed something that I was allergic to. The pharmacy caught it. I told him my pacemaker acted weird. I climbed almost 2,000 feet with an avg. heart rate of 102. i walk through the house and it might be 123. He says "your pacemaker responds to your efforts".

Mine doesn't either. She doesn't need to. She knows all.

Well, to be fair, he didn't say it responded appropriately.

I'm watching delayed on Tiz Cycling. It's free and it's pretty good.

About to enjoy some Spa quali right now.

I always under-drink too, but people manage to do it or come dangerously close on a regular basis.

Happens with sports drinks too, but maybe not Brawndo. Li2CO3 is good.

seedsbelize2 07-29-22 07:07 AM

We haven't had a mandate, in open areas, for a couple months, and folks won't take them off. I had thought it was just the rural, uneducated areas, but it's the same in the city. It's shocking. When I go for my rides, I have to wear one on my chin, just so it shows and I don't get the stinkeye. There are folks out there on motorcycles fully masked. They won't fasten the chinstraps on their (required) helmets and they won't take off their masks.

Am I the only one doing reverse Wordle? Trying to figure out what others guessed based on their grids.
