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

Pffft - to be a medium-sized fish in a little pond?

Besides, that's prolly not the most effective way of going about that.

I usually feel the same way about the whole "doing things for the sake of doing them" deal. Like Everesting. Or even my friend doing his 600K feet of gain every year. It doesn't seem to difficult, 12K feet per week, but to have to do it every week for years? Nah.

I've known guys who've done a million feet, one of them is a regular on the 41, and some even think about trying for 2 million. Then it becomes drudgery, like a job.

My friend who I rode thousands of miles with for years used to do 25K miles some years. Too many hours on the bike.

Yes, there is a little hint of envy jealousy there .
Corrected for you.

Limit screws are properly set. I can move the DR to manually shift the rear.

What am I missing?
Disconnect cable from RD. Put modest tension on cable and shift RD shifter. Does cable move with each shift up/down? If not, recheck that cable head is properly seated inside shifter.

The rain quit late afternoon and I almost went out and picked up some miles but I adulted it instead and mowed the lawn.

Sounds like the cable might be too tight. But it's early. I haven't finished my coffee. I might have another answer later.

I do the same, if not better speed on rolling terrain as I do on the flats. The downhills not only provide some rest but some peak velocity as well.
Here in the flats there is no rest, without slowing significantly.

No rest for the wicked.

Speaking of flat. I was shocked to see my HR at a constant 160 today. I was not breathing hard and I was singing this group love song out loud over and over. So to me I felt almost conversational pace, like my HR should have been at 140. Power output reflected the 160 so I must have just been super fresh. Pace wasn’t bad, but I did feel a lot faster than advertised, also was wearing shoes 3 sizes too big. Roads were wet and did not want my white ones to get gross.

Posted about this a while back in a separate thread but wanted to mention it here too in case anyone has any additional tips.

I'm heading off on a bucketlist trip with my soon to be fiancée next month, we'll be in Lagos, Portugal for a week and then Mallorca (staying in Soler on the northwest coast) for a week. I plan on renting a bike in both locations. Anyone have any tips or can't-miss rides near either of those locations, and/or know of rental shops near either location?

I got more info on the cyclist fatality from Saturday. Reports are that cyclists were riding 2 abreast, the rider was in the left line and there was a sudden slowdown....guy bumped wheels and fell into oncoming traffic, hit and likely died instantly. Sad, and a reminder to be careful especially with a large group.

So riding two abreast, they took the whole lane. Sad news in any case. I wonder if anyone will learn anything from it?

Sad deal, but doesn't sound like the motorist did anything wrong and it was purely an accident.

I believe that is accurate. Report states motorist stayed on the scene. Sad all around, even the motorist likely was traumatized.

I can't comment on Portugal but see link above. Mallorca is supposedly a cycling haven. Don't forget to post pics when you go!
