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 say this as a fully vaccinated person. I hope this is the last time you feel the need to share this information.

Win-win compromise:

Mojo31 agrees not to do any more COVID posts if you stop posting music videos.

12 miles and nearly 1800' elevation gain of mountain biking today.

It's very rough terrain around here. I somehow managed to not hurt myself or my bike but a full suspension would be really lovely

I was planning a short ride today. Maybe 32, maybe 40 miles. After all, I Zwifted yesterday for two hours, because I figured there might be smoke again today.

BUT it was a beautiful day, and I said, "What the hell. Why not?" and did a 55 mile ride anyway. Now in desperate need of food, shower, and a nap. In that order.

1:16? Really? Perhaps I'm not understanding correctly again. Like the 4k thing. Of course I'm looking at it on a small computer screen, and have no idea how big the paper is.

In one experiment, for example, they exercised young and old athletes to the same degree of dehydration and measured a bunch of stuff, including ratings of thirst. The old guys felt less thirsty.

Did my Brandywine Century. Of course for some reason I only got credit for 99.6 miles while my friends, who did the exact same ride, got full credit. It was a fine ride. Now I am bushed!

Did they offer brandy or wine at the rest stops? Seems reasonable.

Interestingly, I notice CC, at least, has a full range of Di2 shifters and derailleurs available. Hopefully that's promising for Tuesday.
