I think you can now get some obscure or heritage varieties as seed to grow from specialist seed merchants that aren't sweet.

Those heritage varieties are the best there is. At the time they were sweet. Then the monsantos got ahold of them.

Sounds difficult

I have lost my mojo for riding. It happens occasionally.
Part of it is I like to party out my mornings and, this time of year, that spells doom for cycling. Unless I go in the evening. I'm working up to that.

For example, mowing--should be simple, right?

Yesterday I did the tough effort phases (push mowing, weedeating) first and got roasted by the pre-winter sun. I don't care what the thermometer says, 10 a.m. - 1p.m. is the hottest part of the day. There were clouds overhead but weirdly none of them ever seemed to cover the sun.

So when I get on the tractor, then it decides to cloud over. Half way through a thunderstorm hits. It has to rain sometime, so that's fine. But being a rational person, I want to finish all the mowing in one session. I went under cover for a quick snooze while I waited for the storm to pass.

Wake up 45 minutes later and the storm entered a zombie phase. There continued to be rumbles of thunder, annoying light rain, even as there were substantial patches of blue sky not far from overhead. It literally rained another 15-20 minutes after the sun came out. :wtf:

tl;dr yesterday the weather conspired to make Velo Vol's mowing difficult.

Nope, but expecting a couple inches of rain, more closer to the shore.

Probably only until it gets too cold and dark to ride in the morning, and after the September COTA sessions

Anyone want to add me to the group? Or too chicken? :lol:

I live in a metro area with 3MM+ people - not terribly common here.

I was going to invite you but somehow you are not my friend, so I can't. Sad!

Maybe he would not belong to any club that would have him as a member??

Good point.

Ha. Y'all are on a roll this morning, but I'm following datlas and requested WhyFi, so someone should be able to.

I think you have that backwards.

Still not seeing you request to follow. :foo:

Ah. Found it, just didn't get a notification for some reason.

I don't bother having my profile set that way. If someone really wants to follow and/or stalk me, they can do so without permission.

As a result, I have a lot more followers than people I follow.

datlas 07-10-20 09:23 AM

I wanted to do another century tomorrow but my friends are knackered so we may only be doing a metric. That means I am less likely to podium this week. I consider it taking one for the team.

Damn thing started running towards me when we saw each other, so I swung wide just in case it was a little off its rocker.

That looks like a street in Burbank, California, where that house would probably be north of $1.5million, maybe $2million.

I rarely see a fox in the hills here but they're here. Lots of coyotes everywhere.

I have a set of Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels I want to sell. They were purchased for 10 speed but I don't know if 11 will work or not. Any gear heads here? I have both Shimano and Campagnolo freehub bodies for them.

Pretty sure you use the thin spacer for 10 speed and pitch it for 11, at least if running Shimano. I am only 95% sure of that so check with others to be positive.

Correct, but it's his schtick.
