Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Uh oh. MoAlpha's boat is headed the wrong way! Looks like they really could have used Velo Vol's help.

German engineering peaked in the late 90's. Japanese is still rolling forward. Hot take.

It's been so long since I did a real ride I forgot I would be hungry at the end. The app says 35.6 miles. Close enough. My 20 year old shorts are too big for me. How are these things sized? Waist size?

Honestly, I was thinking of my mom's workday. She was your age in the very early 60s. Sometimes these things just slip out. No harm intended.

Trying to help/stay out of the way while Mrs. GeneJockey gets ready for an impromptu trip to San Diego with an old friend and her sister. The sister just bought a puppy on the spur of the moment (she already has one dog), so Mrs. GJ is going down to SD with them for a week, to...... Well, that's not exactly clear.

I never saw one, but that was def the point he was trying to make.

I should have let it go, but I was seeing red. It really pissed me off.

What do ya'll use for an under the back seat water bottle holder/mount?

I'm no tri-guy but it's 100+ degrees here and a 30+ mile ride might be 3 water bottles, not 2.

Convince me I don't need the water or give me a rec on what under the back seat water bottle holder is a good deal.

What you don't carry an extendable police baton with you when you ride? Oh wait, just Texas things. (literally OK to carry vis a vi our govenor's new rules put in place a few years back).

Nothing good would come of it. I usually ignore ass holes but today I just couldn’t. I want to change my name to elitist duck.

I would never suggest anyone underhydrate, but the other thing you can do is to identify water stops, where you can refill. My usual ride has one at 10 miles from home, a couple around 16 miles, another at about 25, then I pass the second set at about 40 miles, and the last one at 46 miles. But the last 10 miles, nothing. So I have to remember where to refill.

some additional options to under the seat include -

a third water bottle in jersey back pocket

a small fanny / waist pack that will hold a water bottle (or two)

Camelbak or similar

pull a small trailer loaded with a large jug of water lol

First there’s flooding in Yellowstone and now new snow in Glacier creating serious avalanche concerns.
