#FormerCyclist

After lots of weights, I hammered out a 2 hour Zone 3 ride today. I guess that's my new Saturday plan. Jeez it hurt but I should recover enough to do a pesky 3.5 hour Z2 ride tomorrow.

Of course I didn't use said water, though I did think about doing so. A bug entered my mouth. I think I spit it out, though I am not entirely sure. It nearly required an emergency drink.

Posts that include moldy old bottles shouldn't count.

I only have old pics of the same ride.
There is a highway down there.

That was in response to his inquiry as to whether I shop at JC Penny. I donít despite the fact that it still exists.

I also donít shop at Walmart. Mostly out of fear that I may show up on the people of Walmart website.

Wow, you delivered the goods. That valley shot is stupendous. File pics are fine, Google images, not so much.

Test fitting a saddle at Walmart.

Haven't tried a Kona yet.

All I have to offer is after doing approx 3000 mile trips in 2019 Hyundai Elantra and 2020 VW Jetta, the Elantra is a better car.

Those were the days...

Couldn't you have little logos embroidered somewhere unnoticable? Bam, uniforms. :)

There have been court cases involving lawyers trying to write off the cost of suits. Weíve been rejected at every turn.

If I knew a way to do it, I would.

I could have ridden by a JCPenny today, but I didn't because there's a lot of lights on that road. Instead, I did the suicide run under I-75. #CyclingContent

Then they were still using Mitsubishi engines and I think that one is carbureted. (barf). My ex bought one of the injected ones new in 1990 for $6k. Other than routine maintenance the only thing I ever did to it was an alternator and rebuilt the clutch slave cylinder. Sold it to a guy at work with 100k miles and last I heard he had it up to 140k miles with no repairs.

Fun stuff. If they built the bridge today, it would be five lanes underneath, instead of a narrow three.

We watched The Waterboy tonight.
