Strava tells me I hit 5k miles for the year. :bday:

I do believe I'mma have to wait for the snow to fly to be on the leaderboard again.

Even though it is in a urban setting, KSU is scenic. Not a great picture but gives an idea of the setting.

How do you tell a next-door neighbor that their festering kiddie pool is breeding mosquitos? They're even attacking in the daytime, just now in full sunlight where I'm usually safe.

We have a respectful relationship, wave and smile and say hello and all, but they've only been there a year so we're not 'tight" yet. I'm dying to just give them a couple mosquito dunks but they have 2 young-uns and I don't want to be responsible if they misuse it.

Kudos for you! I hit 5k outdoor miles on Thursday.

It looks like you scanned and enlarged a photo from 1977.

Sneak over at night and pour some DDT in it.

He just wrapped up a ~50-miler, so unless we egg him on to get back out there... :innocent:

Ick.

How's the ol' softball arm? Think you could plunk some chlorine tabs in to the pool? :D

Not bad, but I doubt they still make that, although I wouldn’t put it past Monsanto.

As luck would have it, it’s on the other end of their yard.

Lovely weather day for cycling. Or to be a cat.

Just checked, Looks like I passed 5000 miles my last ride as well.

I just might be able to hit my goal of 7500………

Velo Vol 09-12-21 01:36 PM

These amuse me.

Maybe I should stop getting my new routes from a climber.

Not quite an official datlas ride of 100'/mile but ~50mi and 4300' still hurt quite a bit.

Ended up hitting PRs on a decent amount of segments and got a 7w increase on my eFTP from Intervals :)

Must be why I've been glued to the couch all afternoon :lol:

Do you have a lot of short steep climbs there? Got a low gear?

There's not much longer than 6-8 miles and 2000' close by.

Lots of ~2 miles and 800'-1000' though with 10-15% kicks.

I've got a 34x32 and I use it regularly.

Blue bike faster, as it turns out.
