Hey, did you finish your cross-state ride??

See earlier post about snapping my seat post collar bolt in Frenchtown, NJ, with 60 miles to go. At least it was a nice place to be disabled while I waited for the cavalry of one. 502 miles total.

Interesting. To me the torch almost have too much room. I can move all of my toes around almost full motion. Took them out on the century today, I have to say it was the first time in my cycling career I didnít feel the need to take my shoes off or loosen them. This is also the first time I didnít get some form of hot foot. As mentioned above, I did feel like I might have had to much room, but maybe my XXx are just almost too tight. Just need to get some insoles for the torches and iíll be good to go.

I still get SIDIs but I have to pull the velcro/belt/fastener all the way in order to get it snug.

Try them again when you're in the market. I had some a decade ago when they were moderately wide, but after that, they went narrower, which is probably what you've tried. They've recently gone back to wider and now offer "Wide" models, in addition [not sure if they're actually wider than their normal models or if they're just higher volume]. There were some recent articles about their change in foot philosophy - https://cyclingtips.com/2022/05/spec...h-shoe-review/

They really pinched the side of my feet. This was last fall with the newest dual boa Torch shoe

Get the Spesh insoles. Mucho better than the Bontragers.

I got out for an easy 15 miles, just get on the bike. The September humidity left with the rain. The last two days have been quite pleasant. Our first couple years in YucatŠn, Winter riding season started Oct. 10. Them it got later and later---deep into Nov. recently. Maybe this will be an early year again. Hope springs eternal.

If you read the review about the camera varia from DC rainmaker, he hit it right on the head.

The app sucks, and I canít get my varia to connect to its whyfi to my phone. Iíve tried about 60 times, doesnít work, tried on my ipad too. I didnít really have any close calls today, but that is extremely frustrating. Whatís the point of having a camera if you canít even access the material.? Thank god itís just the app and not the actual equipment. Do better garmin!

He's probably out on a ride. You should try again later.

Current status: Kid is driving us - and her car packed with stuff - from So Cal to Eugene, OR. We will be spending the night a little past half way (Redding, CA), and finish the drive tomorrow. Thursday is her move-on day at the University of Oregon.

Safe travels!

I think I see some family resemblance. I will try to find a father-daughter pic of Hannah and me to share.....

Mojo31 09-20-22 03:21 PM

Good times, Eric!

Be safe.

It's reassuring when your kids sort of look like you. ;)

Well today we got rain(twice) with no thunder or lightning. It just rolled in, rained awhile, and rolled out. It felt so strange to have just a normal rain. Of course there was no warning and there were clothes on the line.

I dunno if the call of shame is a good way to start a relationship.
