Addiction 2021.3

Notices
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

I'm signing in to my email, and they want to send the two part verification to my email account. Now that I think about it, I've only begun to have this problem since I started using a VPN. It's a bit of a pain. But there are times when it's convenient to appear to be in the USA.

That is ********, unless possibly the verification is going to a different email account.

You can use the crosswalks, plus you get Right Of Way, in California, at least.

When you attack a climb, don’t bend arms at elbows and get aero like when you attack on a flat or downhill. The trade-off between aero and power along curve of hip angle is different for climbing as wind resistance becomes less of an issue. So sit up a bit to increase power.

The Texan attacks hills by crouching. It’s nowhere near as efficient. Trust me.

If you need more detail about opening up hip angle to increase power, ask Bah Humbug as the TT/Tri geeks have that down to a science.

You know the joke about the recipe for a particular chicken dish starts with "First, steal a chicken"?

I expect a super quick stop at 20 and a real stop at 54. There are a few rest stops beyond 54, of which I will likely pick one more.
I would suspect 7 is for people who realize "holy crap I'm not prepared at all for this".

My confusion is the water stop on a 5k run.

Full disclosure:

regarding our earlier discussion about division of work. I must give my wife credit because today I asked her to help me trim some bushes and despite some grumbling she did. We knocked it out fast and went out for lunch and got a to go beer*. We walked around in the designated open container area drinking it. It was nice.

Use this technique on your Zwift races where air resistance is not a factor. You’re welcome.
