Sounds like a friendly kind of place. Did you wave?

Yep, that would do it.

I think the walking/slipping/sliding down the other thing made me use muscles I don't normally use and that caused special pains. It was fun, though, even the parts that were so overgrown I couldn't see the trail.

Wut. The wheels evidently cleared customs in Cincy, already.

A Cautionary Tale

I mowed the lawn this afternoon. Then I drank water. I drank enough to re-hydrate from mowing, but not enough to re-hydrate and pre-hydrate for my subsequent ride. :o

So I got thirsty, but I HTFU and kept riding anyway.

Getting them to you before Sram finds out. Good stuff.

It it took him 17 hours, it would probably take me 47 hours. I would have to set up an actual base camp.

Pop culture references are lost on me, young feller, but itís certainly not a taboo topic. PM WhyFi with your Strava handle if youíre interested.

Lol. I'm going to register them ASAP, though - a big part of the allure is that they have a lifetime warranty, so I want to be sure that SRAM is going to honor that. If they don't... yeah, I don't know.

Oh, and the other customs shoe dropped - I am on the hook for additional duties, but it's only 45 bucks or so.

So not bad overall. Not like the reason AG will not buy stuff from overseas anymore, which is that one time I had her get... I forget what from Merlin early on and the price double with customs.

The number of ways y'all could be dealing with me still trying to find someone...

Sounds like a classy lady.

I... don't really know if this is the place to share. But some certainly knew him. Bikeforums legend Pcad was struck and killed by a car while riding yesterday.

Rest in peace.

Agreed. My wife and I only hike when on vacation and a decently long downhill seems to hurt the quads a lot. I donít know much about hiking but it seems like the quads are tensed up and then repeatedly jarred at the same time with every step. Itís almost like the quads and connective tissue become bruised or strained. Regardless, I can sense your pain.

It’s the eccentric contraction, i.e., activating the muscle while it’s lengthening. Painful when you’re not used to it, but, interestingly, the best treatment for tendinosis.
