I have painters tape on my cervelo to protect it from cable scratches………..


Edit: painters tape on my cervelo’s bars too. That I don’t have a valid reason for.

edit: 22 mph headwind going and 22 mph crosswind coming back. Should be fun………

Do you have a laptop? They usually have a couple USB sockets.

Not one that doesn’t have the possibility of exploding.

Took my daughter to Busch Gardens today. She’s finally tall enough to qualify for all of the kids rides. We got to ride our first roller coaster together and she loved it. Rode it three more times after.

I have 38 sk, like them and they roll fast

Just now sitting down to 90 minutes of Strade Bianche (In Italian!!!)

#nospoilers

Even though some cycling rag already partially spoilered me on FB. My fault for looking I guess :)

I’ll not spoil it, but today’s Paris-Nice stage is well worth watching, too. Tirreno Adriatico starts tomorrow and promises to be a good race this year, too.

Strade is becoming quite the race, and ushers in the classics season.

I guess Omloop could be considered, but Strade has become much more prestigious.

It's important for the look to not be contrived. Too matchy matchy is just too.... matchy matchy.

I'd at least want things to be the in the same categorical plane. It's a reasonably nice frame built with mostly 105, so I feel it deserves nice stuff but not too nice.

Also I've got a "gravel" Salsa seatpost and handlebar with a road Syncros stem. That just feels a little odd to me, but I'm a little odd myself.

I love the Burger King sponsorship.

:bday:

I was actually wondering the other day if you had changed things over yet and I just missed it.

What good is 78 degrees if there are going to be 40-50 mph winds starting around lunchtime and then storms in early evening?

Ride in one direction and take all of the KOM.

I think that's called March. It was my least favorite month.

Sounds like something he would do.

When does the next REI sale start. I opted out of their emails.

And the Classics are the best cycling of the year. I need to figure out a way to watch them. A Colombian feed is prolly the best option, but vamos a ver.
