I don't think that I've ever used it - my PM does the auto zero.

Today I was doing another zone 2 ride, but was not looking at my power. Goal was to keep the HR under 140, trying to keep about a 125 average. At mile 20 I happened to look at my power numbers and it was showing an average power of 190. That seemed really high for the speed I was cruising at, so I started watching it. I know from past experience that 170 watts will give me about 140 hr, well today at 264 watts I was only showing 130 hr, and on top of that my speed was 16 mph on flat ground.

Took me a few tries but was finally able to recalibrate at mile 30. The rest of the ride appeared normal.

Usually every ride. Or, did. It never showed a ton of difference.

Someone posted a clue to today's Wordle on FB. Wish I hadn't seen it but I guessed the word.

I have it set up to prompt to calibrate before every ride. So, yes.

Sweet - Wahoo replaced my Speedplays, which had developed a mm or two of lateral play, and just gave me a new retail pedal packaging, including cleats (I kept my cleats on my shoes, obv). The cleats will save me 50 bucks down the line, sometime.

I never posted this before because I avoid A&S stories like the plague. But, I was hit a few weeks ago while riding on a local 55 mph county highway with a 6' paved shoulder. According to a witness, I was so far tho the right of the paved shoulder that I was barely on the pavement. The mirror of a pickup hit my left shoulder blade and catapulted me into the ditch. The driver didn't stop and the witness couldn't get the plate number.

Anyway, bike is fine and I'm ok except that I have a slight pain in my left shoulder where I was hit when I get tired like over 40 miles.

Be safe out there.

With motor vehicle operators. It always makes me wonder why none of them can remember they have a brake pedal....

dagnabit! I'd say to be careful but there's no way to prevent that kind of hit. It does appear to be heightened lately.

Ouch. Glad you're okay. Hope the shoulder heals well.

Correct. The closest things I have to socials are Strava and Addiction.

I have a FB account that I used to use when I employed people. I wanted to see what kind of person they were outside the interview and workplace. That was when FB was "the thing" and before all the old people adopted it. Now the only thing I do on it is follow the local Porsche club events and a DFW cycling group. I have two "friends" - my wife and daughter.

Used to have an Instagram page when I was more engaged in photography. That recently ended when I kept getting messages that it could not confirm that I am over age 12, and it shut down my account.
