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 need a ruling, here. Do diets start on 1/1 or 1/2 after the New Year Day debauchery is over? Or, do we just wait until Lent?

I vote for the 2nd.
A diet tip. There is an app called 'Noom'. I lost 14 lbs. with it the last three months of 2020. It's still off. A first.

You could also drape a trash bag over the stand. Just poke the clamp thru a hole in the bottom.

I had a fun NYD ride. Only about 10 of us at the start and we met up with a few others later. This is a ride which had 200 riders in years past. A few went into the mountains but the rest of us went to coffee then resumed riding. Speeds were casual but we were on a flat section I went to the front to hammer a bit, just to warm up. Realized I was with a bunch of racers and they all lined up behind me and when I ran out of gas the line just went around me. I should have just left well enough alone.

BF member Cleave was there, first time I've seen him in a few years. Skarin bought coffee and snacks for everyone. An 86 year old racer joined us for a few miles. Some of them knew him but I never met him before. Fun day!

Hmmm...I shift both regularly, and haven't had this issue. Been doing it for years.

It was a bummer, especially since this bike shifted so well before today.

Also my rear hub is incredibly loose, like ~2mm of play. It wasn't like that at the start of the ride, so that should be fun to diagnose

How does that happen? We’re you pedaling backwards when shifting?

We do but we feed FulGaz in to a flat screen and only one can do it at a time. Besides, I'm pretty sure that we would overheat the room if both of us rode at the same time. I rode after her today and the room felt warmer than normal.

Broke my previous record for largest object introduced to the interior of a tyre carcass while JRA the other day, just peeled the tyre off today for replacement. (Quarter for scale)

I routinely warm the garage up about 5 degrees, and increase relative humidity around 10%, in an hour of Zwifting. I told Mrs. GJ I could rent myself out as a 180W heater/humidifier.
